2018 Fall Trends with Neiman Marcus

We may be in the middle of a summer heatwave here in San Diego, but as a fashion blogger and fashion enthusiast, I have to always keep my eye on what's coming up next season, which is why I love attending the Neiman Marcus Trend Report- to scope out the upcoming trends! Twice a year, Neiman Marcus at Fashion Valley San Diego hosts their Trend Report Luncheon where they serve up fresh fashion with a side of delicious food!

The Neiman Marcus trends are set by Ken Downing, their National Fashion Director and then the trend report in San Diego is styled and presented by NM Fashion Valley's own Style Advisor, Alex Yáñez! I have been attending this luncheon over the years, and what I consistently love about this report and think is unique to San Diego is that it's an elevated look at trends as it is styled with luxurious brands that I dream of such as Balenciaga, Givenchy, Gucci, Versace, Valentino... to name a few, yes that was just a few!

2018 FALL TRENDS WITH NEIMAN MARCUS

PEACOCK HUES

Neiman Marcus has deemed the blue-green peacock shades of color as the IT hue of the season! Taking the tip from Alex's styling you can wear this hue in a monochromatic way, mixing similar hued textures or coordinating with other complementary colors (such as burgundy).

LEATHER EVERYTHING

Basically leather on leather on leather... from matte to patent, head to toe. Here are some of the ways Alex styled the trend, a leatherfest of sorts that all give different vibes from rocker to chic.

POWER TAILORING

Ooze sophistication with strong tailoring like pieces that have strong shoulder or double breasted tailoring. Taking a tip from Alex's styling below, it is layering tailored pieces without losing structure- it just makes me want to do a power stance regardless of it being at work or play!

ANIMAL PRINTS

Although animal printed anything is nothing new to fashion, this Fall is about the refreshed styling of fierce animal prints (like leopard, zebra, tiger) from the way they are mixed and matched or layered. And animal print sure had a moment as this Versace beauty strutted down...

ANYTIME SEQUINS

Although sequins is usually reserved for special occasions, nights out in the town or New Year's eve, Neiman Marcus has given us permission to rock sequins ANYTIME! Queue the confetti! You can wear one sequins piece or pair it with others like Alex's stylings below- just remember to let that smile shine.

SHOE TRENDS TO NOTE

WESTERN BOOTS

Add just a dash of the Wild West to your look with some western-ish boots, I added "ish" because these boots take inspiration from the classic western boots with an updated twist like sequins or logos (see the Fendi ones!)

LACE UP BOOTS

An update on the good ol' 90's lace up boots. Taking a style tip from Alex, lace up boots are a great touch of edge to a feminine outfit. Also, let me take the opportunity to drool over those lace up Louboutin boots - oh my...

So many trends to be excited about right?! I especially LOVE that you can mix all of these trends with each other like Alex did with the lace up boots and animal prints, or the leather "power tailored" pieces. My personal favorites were the power tailoring because it's something I can wear in and out of the office, I liked the fresh approach to animal prints and the "anytime sequins" pieces that I can't wait to wear, any time! 

And as we concluded the trend report , the beauty guest was a representative from PERRIS Swiss Laboratory which is a skin care line exclusively sold at Neiman Marcus. It's beautifully packaged (see here) and is all about keeping your skin looking young with their anti-aging technology. 



And now, I'll pose the question to you, which trends did you like most?
