Fall 17 Color Report

Trend WatchSahra

We previously chatted about our favorite trends for the upcoming fall season. This week, we wanted to chat about the colors we're loving for fall!

First up, Burnt Orange (AKA: "Pumpkin Spice") is making a huge splash this fall! Not sure if that's because it reminds us of pumpkin spice everything or the rusty hue creates a warm fuzziness over our eyes but we LOVE IT.

Fall 2017 Color Trend Orange Pumpkin Spice

Next up, we'll go with "irridescent". While not a color per se, holographic hues are about to have a MAJ moment. Whether it's a shimmering knit, pearly nails, or shoes with a sheen, you can't go wrong with a little glimmer.

FW 2017 Color Trend Holographic

Millennials and Gen-Zers are in love with the fantastical; unicorns, and mermaids inspired the rise of Muted Teal through all facets of art and design for the coming season. This pretty hue pairs well with oranges and burgundy's for a bold statement, or even by itself or with a navy for a more monochromatic mod aesthetic.

FW 17 Color Trend Teal

What do you think of these colors for fall?  We're loving how versatile they are; they paid well with the ever-present-for-fall burgundy, mustard,  and navy tones, while also being beautiful stand alone hues for a monochromatic mod aesthetic.

Trend WatchSahra

August is here and with that comes back to school shopping (*cough*perfect opportunity for our teen tours*cough*) or, if you're an adult, fall style shopping!

1. The Kimono Jacket - This silky layering piece gives a luxe PJ aesthetic that's perfect for dressing up or down.

2. Smart Slides - Flat slides, or flat mules if you will, give a bohemian yet tailored look to any outfit made even better if they have a pointed toe, fun print, or a special embellishment to make a statement.

3. Embroidered Denim - Bring back some 70s and 90s nostalgia with this cool trend - we love embroidered jackets with patches or floral appliqued trousers. The coolest part about this trend is the opportunity to customize and DIY - after all, true style is personal.

4. Netting - Fishnets are on an uptick; we love a fishnet top paired with a cool leather jacket, or fishnet tights peeking over jeans or even under at the ankle for a fun bit of edge.

5. Low Tops - Whether you're bougie with the embroidered Gucci's, or more casual with the Adidas Superstars, this trend is an instant street style hit for fall.

Summer 2017 Pop Ups

Sahra

One of the best parts about booking a tour with Shop The City is the insider knowledge to visit local pop up shops and sample sales that, as someone visiting from out of town or out state, you might not know about otherwise. Summer is full of shopping festivals, weekend soirees, and dope sample sales, many of them proving you don't need to be in a fashion capital to find great style.

Their style is urban-contemporary; ideal for the girl who knows her style and isn't afraid to get funky with it. Their temporary abode is as instagrammable as it is shoppable, and makes it the perfect spot on our DC It Girl tour.

Maybe you're not an edgy girl; maybe you err on the side of preppy, with a taste for quality and color. Alexandria's 116 King is the place for you, flying in designer and handmade goods from Africa, Charleston, and more. Between budding prep-fame The Skinny Dip and adorable baby clothes mixed with men's polos and accessories there's something fore everyone at this spot. Our fave pick? the Artemis woven loafers - a perfect flat or slide to transition through summer into fall.

Trend Talk: Millennial Pink

Trend WatchSahra
millennial pink

Believe it or not, but pink is the hottest color of the decade, but not just any pink. We're talking the newly coined "millennial pink"; a soft subdued hue reminiscent of pepto bismal and 80s décor. It's androgynous, which makes it perfect for our post-gender-identifying generation, while still being able to be feminine and masculine when it needs to be. It works for the home and the wardrobe, from rose gold and copper metals to lush velvets and crisp cottons. It's safe to say that millennial pink is our fave trend to look forward to this coming season.
