Fall Trends You Can Rock In Singapore’s Warm Weather

Watching fall’s best collections drop in stores and online has always been bittersweet for me. I love the luxurious coats and layers that are representative of the classic fall wardrobe—but they’re just not made for our warm Singaporean weather.

So instead of resolving ourselves to summer-friendly fashion, we get smart about selecting our favourite fall picks! Keep reading for our top warm-weather friendly fall picks this year!

Western Cowboy

From Coach to Chloe and even Louis Vuitton, the western trend is one of the more thematic styles designers showed love to this season. While the runway looks were decidedly more full-on, there are tons of ways to work this trend this season!

The trick to working this trend is to be selective with your western-inspired pieces! Opt for a single piece that nods towards the era and style, and make that the focus of your outfit! Alternatively, you could go with western style pieces that have a slightly modern make, like these Kendall + Kylie sock western boots that is both sleek, and reminiscent of the cowboy boot.

Bold Colours

From dramatic cuts to dizzying prints, it’s easy to see that there’s nothing subtle about fall 2018’s trends. And rest assured, the season’s colour choice is (no surprise) no different! Designers have been committing to colour, but with reds and rich fuschia pinks snatching the limelight!

We love playing with colour trends because it’s one of the easiest ways to look fashion-forward, and double up on trends of the season! We especially love the idea of formal pieces, like this corduroy blazer, getting a modern makeover in a candyfloss-pink hue! It’s great for the office, after work activities, and can be worn as outerwear, or styled like a blazer dress!

1980’s Retro

We’re talking strong shoulders, ruffles, and a whole lot of colour this season as the 1980’s make a comeback! The nostalgic style we know and love has gotten a modern remake with sleeker fabrics and colours this fall.

This year we’re ditching the shoulder pads for ruffles and slouchier styles to imitate the strong-shouldered silhouette without all the heavy layering! We’re also loving the deep, rich hues we’re seeing this season, which is a decidedly more classic take on the bright neon shades we’re so used to seeing from the 80’s.

Modest Wear

We’ve talked about modest fashion on the site many times, and we love that this inclusive style is being explored and embraced this season!

Many Instagram style stars are getting in on this by layering printed pieces over each other, nailing both the modest wear and mixed print trend at once! The trick here is to layer lightweight pieces, like a loose maxi over a sheer mesh top for a sweet look that’ll keep you from sweltering in the hot sun!

Pro tip: if layering isn’t for you, there are tons of maxis this season that feature multiple prints in one, like this polka dot and floral printed dress from Rixo London!

Statement Logo Bags

This season we see statement logo bags take the spotlight! With clashing colours and cute new cuts and contrasting textures, bags are far more than just another accessory this fall.

Bags that feature all-over logo prints–like this fluffy Fendi stunner–have also been a fashion week favourite. If you prefer to keep your look sleek and simple, these make the perfect statement accessory to add that extra oomph to your outfit. But if you’re into experimenting with print this season, it’s a great piece to mix prints with as well–we’re already planning to rock this Fendi bucket bag with a tan checkered or houndstooth printed blazer!
