Christmas arrives in less than two weeks, and it just might be time to start planning your Noche Buena OOTD! Thing is, whether you like it or not you'll be taking a ton of photos (with your parents, siblings, titos, titas...), so you might as well aim to be the most stylish one at the dinner table. Below, may we suggest eight easy Fall/Winter 2017 runway trends you can sport while playing Santa? The point is to look current yet fuss-free, and believe us, it's not as hard as it sounds.
The trend: RED
Two words: deceptively easy. The thing with crimson is that it's the ultimate color for the holidays, therefore there are so many ways you could sartorially sink or swim. Shini Park's got a great head-to-toe scarlet look going for her, though: push your sweater down one shoulder and tuck an au courant pair of knee-high boots under a pleated midi.
The trend: FOLK PRINT
Italian luxury label Etro is famous for that exuberantly bohemian aesthetic they've come to coin. Here's a simple trick to cop the season's homage to heritage craft and quilt work! Loop a slim, paisley-printed scarf around your neck or wrist then call it a day. Bet none of your cousins thought of doing that.
The trend: SUITING
Ironically (isn't it freezing in most other countries right now?!), pantslessness is also a thing this Fall-Winter, but let us merge it with a paradoxically modest trend—the suit. Bea Marin's key piece is her oversized Wales check blazer, worn bare-legged with a beret, socks and pumps. Salute to the grown-up girl scout.
The trend: SLOGANS
Got something to say to that aunt who keeps asking if you've got a boyfriend yet? Be our guest and wear your statement while dishing out slices of fruitcake. Pair with a dainty set of plaid trousers and a beribboned little handbag to keep things family-friendly, no matter the text.
The trend: FUR
Our suggestion would be to pick something you can shrug off quick, in case you're sitting a little too close to the holly-scented candles and can't afford to sweat your makeup away. Model Shiori Takesue's tee-and-denim combo is cute enough to wear on its own, but 'tis the season to be extra, so go ahead and flaunt that faux fuzz.
The trend: CHROME
Silver bells, silver bells. This is as elegantly simple as it gets: metallic camisole, black jeans, and slingback pumps. Count on Linda Tol to be the very definition of effortless cool! You could, of course, choose to roll the blinged-out disco ball route, but that's entirely your prerogative.
The trend: CORDUROY
Cords are no doubt the so-uncool-it's-cool fabric flavor of the year, especially when done up in autumnal hues like burgundy and amber. Una Kinoco's muted teal is gorgeous, too, though, and we love how she teamed her belted, wide-leg pants with a distressed pullover. Talk about a high-low remix.
The trend: ROSE MOTIFS
What's in a name? Juliet may have said those infamous words, but it's Rina Fukushi who looks regal in a bloom-strewn top that's juuust tita enough to be coveted. We imagine these larger-than-life red roses with a simple pair of jeans and some punchy statement earrings.
The trend: FRINGE
Swing is back, but if you're skeptical, be hesitant in the most decadent possible way: carry the J.W. Anderson Mini Pierce Suede Fringe Clutch Bag into the party and watch heads turn with every flick of your wrist.
