As some of you may know, I subscribe to a wide variety of newsletters from online stores, from Gap to Peruvian Connection to Spiegel.

Let's compare a few takes on the Fall Trends (note: Fall is a season that does NOT exist in my country):

Gap says it's:
- Chambray and Denim;
- Statement Prints;
- Sweatshirt chic;
- Mariner stripes;
- Pops of yellow;
- Borrowed from the Boys (masculine?)

For Victoria's Secret it is:
- The tuxedo jacket;
- The slip dress;
- The bow blouse & flirty skirt;
- The colorblock dress;
- The body tee;
- The trench;
- The long and lean cardi;
- The pointy-toe stiletto pump;
- The skinny jeans.

I'll update this as I get newsletters because the comparisons/interpretations might be interesting to read.

Thank you for posting this. What is obvious to me is that the differences will of course relate to what these vendors actually sell. I would have been extremely surprised if Gap didn't have denim

I got a trend report from a designer friend a couple months ago, based on runway looks. To say they were all over the place is an understatement.

Oh, this is a great topic. Not that I follow trends, mind you, but I like to know what they are. And we definitely have Autumn where I am.

They can keep their pointy-toe stiletto pump, thank you anyway. Both have skinny jeans, but I'm happy to see some boot cut on your Gap link.

Well according to Bergdorf Goodman the styles for fall are minimalist, black and white, biker chic, masculine dressing (him for her), and extra sensory overload, with lots of prints mixed.
I think it is just what their buyers have bought and that is what they are promoting.

I think the tailored even men's wear look is a reaction to all the 50's girly-girl clothing.The pointy shoe look is from the 60's when women were beginning to dress for the business scene in a more no frills way.I'm seeing a lot of black and white prints,stripes or separates.This isn't even trying for fashion because its so forgettable and basic.You could have one pair of black pants and one white shirt and wear it every day.I can see why it might be tempting to dress that way with some of the really bad takes on color this last season.I was shopping at Talbot's summer clearance and the colors were so jarring..greens that looked like limes on steroids..blues that were so bright only a toddler would look good in them, they were not pleasant colors for grown ups. I did find a pair of navy pants though,that weren't jeans.This is why we sew ,,we get to design with our own best color choices..

I have been paying closer attention to this than usual, especially as I have already started sewing fall clothing.

This weekend QVC had a 2-day fall fashion event. According to them, the fall must-haves are:

Boot skirt
Moccasin shoe
Barn jacket
Printed blouses and bottoms
Ankle boot
Saddlebag purse
Suede and leather (jackets, vests, and purses)

And, of course, these vendors definitely are listing what they sell, but I still find it interesting.

What I have been seeing *loads* of in stores for fall are moto jackets. I just made a moto jacket, so I'm definitely channeling that trend. ;)

I find I sew clothes then find out I'm actually on trend by accident. lol!
So I will forcast (based on my sewing plans) a lot of victorian/edwardian influenced items (the steampunk filtering into the mainstream) with lace, velvet, silk and tailoring.
Maxi skirts will stay but be in tweedy type material. Boots back in ankle-knee high. Natural waistline on skirts and trousers.
