We want to get you in the mood for Fall even though it hasn’t been an easy feat in these scorching dog days of summer. Believe it or not, the new designer collections have been coming through our doors since the end of July and we’ve been receiving boxes upon boxes making everyday feel like Christmas morning.
Although some of the trends you’ve been seeing on the runways might seem a bit “fashion impossible”, do not feel overwhelmed. Your stylists at Intrigue have identified the trends that are noteworthy and have found their way into wearable, buyable designs for the everyday woman in mind. Below, we’ve highlighted our key trends for Fall!
Enjoy comparing the catwalk fashions to the on the street interpretations you’ve been seeing within our walls.
Street Style Statement Coats
Runway: Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Givenchy
It doesn’t matter whether you prefer a crazy, ornate print, something fluffy, or a design that’s wildly colorful. These one-and-done statement coats dominated the runways, whether layered or standalone. All you really need is a pair of boots to finish the outfit.

Runway: Proenza Schouler, Victoria Beckham, Michael Kors
Animal prints never die. They may go into hibernation, but faithfully return every fall. This season saw the revival of classic leopard coats, but we were also introduced to tiger print, and these patterns could be spotted from a mile away when worn down to the shoes. It’s a throw-on-and-go, eye-catching outfit for the new season.
Reality: Line Joan Jacket
The Fire in Your Eye
Runway: Tibi, Oscar de la Renta, Sally La Pointe
This monochromatic look is fiery, slimming and oh, so chic. When you work varying tones from your head down to your toes, the result is actually quite pretty, and you’ll surely catch an admiring eye.
Reality: Zadig & Voltaire Cici Patch Cashmere Sweater
A Plethora of Plaid
Runway: Derek Lam, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs
While you’re obviously familiar with check print, we’ve graduated from the return of the simple tartan coat to unexpected pairings and plaid worn in new ways — like asymmetrically across a dress or from head to toe in varying shades. This season, try mixing your plaids, not just by color, but by material (think wool scarves with nylon tote bags).

We hope you feel inspired. Time to shop the Fall fashion trends!
