FALL 2016 WOMEN’S TRENDS & NEW BRANDS

The Fall/Winter 2016 season is all about mixing it up,” declares Stephanie Solomon, Lord & Taylor’s fashion director, womenswear. She advises women to, “pair the hard with soft, a neutral palette with a bright pop of color, a feminine silhouette with masculine fabrics.” She continues, “This season, mix, match, create and take risks!

‘Je ne sais quoi’ French vibe

The basics on the runways this season were items pulled from a chic French girl’s wardrobe. The crisp white shirt, easy-to-wear ballet flats and bright red lipstick completes this look. As the weather turns, throw on a classic trench coat, easily evoking that ‘je ne sais quoi’ vibe. Look for unique and special French finds in our Birdcage concept shop – the classic beret, chic leather goods and much more will be available this season.

Return of the 80s

The return of the 80s cannot be ignored this season. Animal prints, electric bright colors, bold iconography and logos as well as disco bags are inherent to this trend.

Street Savvy

Streetwear and high-fashion are now synonymous. A puffer jacket, track pants and hoodie will be staples in every woman’s wardrobe this season. Athleisure is updated with a chic decorated bomber jacket thrown over a graphic tee.

Victorian Victories

For femininity, look for Victorian influences – in the color palette and fabrications. A silk midi skirt, velvet blazer, lace camisole and satin slip dress complete this look. Pale and soft color palettes allow the fabrication details to reign supreme.

THE Dress Address

Lord & Taylor is the “Dress Address” with an expanded variety of merchandise ranging from workwear to weekend, and day to night styles.

New Womenswear Brands

The highly-anticipated exclusive ready-to-wear collections are now in store, including IMNYC Isaac Mizrahi, H Halston & Highline Collective, Karl Lagerfeld Paris sportswear, dresses, footwear and handbags, Kendall + Kylie handbags, and RACHEL Rachel Roy Curvy.

FALL 2016 MEN’S TRENDS & NEW BRANDS

The macro trend this season is creating the ‘It List’ – one that incorporates every man’s essentials,” states Nelson Mui, Lord & Taylor’s fashion director, menswear.These must-have pieces—black skinny jean, dress boot, Sherpa jackets, turtlenecks and boldly colored bags—re-inforce his seasonal staples, and provide him with a wardrobe that takes him from day-to-night and work-to-weekend,” Mui adds.

Staple Sweaters

The love affair with the 1960s and 70s expands and evolves with the added eccentricity of mixed patterns –geometric with florals. Look for this in essential sweater styles, such as jacquard crewnecks and turtlenecks.

Sherpa-Inspired silhouettes

As Fall shifts to Winter, wool, fleece and fur become essential fabrications. Thick coats layered over sweaters and wool trousers complete this Sherpa-inspired look. A muted palette of grey, taupe and navy allows the focus to be on textures over color.

Business Casual has a Whole New Meaning

Tailoring takes on a more relaxed and casual turn. Subtle windowpane patterns are discreet and stylish. Soft jackets and separates are paired with knits, fine-gauge sweaters and long-sleeve polos.

Day-to-Night Boots

This Fall, the Dress and Chelsea boots are must-haves to take men from day-to-night. Silhouettes have been updated incorporating suede and casual leather uppers as well as rounded toes and rubber soles.

New Menswear Brands

British tailored brand, Hardy Amies, sportswear by Markus Lupfer, Jack & Jones denim and Vince footwear are now available.
