The Checklist: Must Have Fashion Trends for Fall 2015/ Winter 2016
#1: The Cape Jacket
The cape jackets are so hot that we are recommending them for Spring 2016 too! Check out more Spring 2016 trends here: 15 Must-Have Fashion Items for Spring 2016 from London Fashion Week. That’s why I think the cape jacket should top the ESSENTIAL or must have fashion trends for Fall 2015!!
#2: The Slashed Skirt
The slashed skirts and dresses have been seen on the runways for both Fall/Winter and Spring/ Summer. And they look hot! And you can pair them with sheer tights for Winter! Check out this AW look by Dior and these runway looks:
#3: The Single Earring
This Fall, it HAS to be either a single earring. Or a pair of mix ‘n’ match earrings. Read more about how to wear these earrings: How to Wear the Latest Single Earring Trend – Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Jewelry. We recommend something like this minimalistic earring by Dior:
#4: Something with Fringes
Fringes are the hottest trend of 2015. Fringes have taken over shoes, handbags, gloves, boots, dresses, jackets and even jewelry! That’s why we’ve added them to the must have fashion trends for Fall 2015. Tassles will do, too! I recommend an evening fringe Little Black Dress!

#7: A Berry Lipstick
Berry lip colors are the hottest shades for Fall/ Winter. We’ve seen them on the runways of collections like Dolce and Gabbana FW 2015-2016 RTW and on celebs like Emma Watson, Blake Lively, Cara Delevingne and countless others this season. They are also the lip colors of choice according to #SlubAdvice for 20 Best Lip Colors for Fall 2015.
#8: A Shadow Stick
Graphic eyeshadow is my hottest favorite beauty trend for 2015-2016! For a dramatic eye look, try an eye shadow stick in a deep, bold color that gives a colorblocking look. This trend was seen in the runway collections of Dior, Chanel and Celine amongst others. For a more subtle look, try a shadow stick in a light color like pale burgundy, gold, peach or pink.
#9: Embellished Round Sunglasses
Round and cat-eye sunglasses are the hottest styles right now. Read more about all the latest trends here: Latest Fall Trends for Sunglasses. Here’s our pick of Chanel round embellished sunglasses:
#10: A Statement Belt
#11: A Slit Dress
Slit dresses and skirts are all the rage in Fall/Winter 2015-2016. They were all over the runways for Fall/ Winter 2015-2016 couture AND Spring/ Summer 2016 RTW. Plus, celebs have been spotted in thigh-grazing slit skirts that have been showstoppers!
#12: The Top-Handle Micro Bag
Micro bag won the Vogue It-Bag 2015 votes, and top handle is a super-cool trend for Fall/ Winter. For including in the must have fashion trends for Fall 2015, I recommend the Lady Dior top-handle micro-bag!

Fall is always the perfect time to wear the leather jacket. This season, we are loving the cropped zipper leather jacket. We saw it in London Fashion Week SS 2016 earlier this month.
