As an avid follower of fashion weeks happening across New York, Paris and Milan – one eventually learns what to expect to see on runways as the biggest fashion trends of the season for women. When it comes to fall/autumn fashion trends, it is usually a lot of sporty chic minimalistic practical clothing for women in Europe. And, America has this new-found obsession with Athleisure fashion and style for women with a couple of bits and bobs thrown in here and there inspired by boho-chic aesthetics. Talking about the biggest fashion trends for fall 2018 – nothing has changed much, which can be a good or bad thing depending on to what extent have you enjoyed these trends the last year.
Vintage Clothing for Women for Fall 2018
We thought that this day would never come, but it has! Everything seen on the fashion runways these days is a homage to the glorious gone eras; it looks like that today’s age is less contemporary than it is vintage. Thanks to the loosely defined term ‘vintage’ in fashion, you can pull out a patchwork jacket from the early 90s and call it ‘vintage fashion’. This year’s autumn inspired fashion trends for women were no different on the runways. Everything from 60s, 70s and even 80s was revived with a fresh take to bedazzle the attendees. And surprisingly, the change was where everybody expected the least: the hair and makeup department. But, more on that later, let’s cover the fall fashion clothing essential for women first, shall we?
Staple Fall Fashion Clothing You Ought to have for 2018
A little bit European, a dash of ethnic and a pinch of American obsessions is the perfect recipe to curate a killer fall wardrobe to fit all your fashion needs for almost all occasions. Listed below are all the popular trends for the season and key pieces you may want to pick up to flaunt those trends with styling suggestions and outfit ideas.
The Good Old Denim Jacket
Are you even American if by now you don’t pull out a denim jacket each time you hear Starbucks is serving pumpkin spice latte? The denim jacket trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. So, you better purchase one if you already don’t own one. But, this time, instead of trying the 2017’s denim on denim trend – make way for some Parisian style fashion outfit. Layer your jacket on top of a figure-hugging silhouette, preferably a knee-length dress in black. Add on a crossbody bag for a casual chill vibe and some trainers to keep things coolly charming for the day.
This type of look is better complemented with simple loose hair with a little texturizing spray for body and volume. Just a matte black winged eyeliner with a scarlet red pout. You don’t need anything else, it’s enough drama for the day.
Crop Sweatshirts are A Thing Now
So, like, crop tops weren’t chic enough already. The cozy loungewear fashion vibe for fall and winters have added the glam to your trustee sweatshirts. Find yourself a cute sweatshirt and pair it with your favorite pair of yoga pants. Complete the look with some slide-on loafers and gold rimmed olive toned round sunnies. Tie your hair up on a knot and you’re ready to p.a.r.t.y. for the fall.
Since this is a very cool, causal and chilled everyday go-to look, we recommend going easy on the makeup. Mauve toned nude lip colors are big this year for fall, so you get that on your lips. Add tons of mascara on your lashes and load up on the bronzer for your face.
The Autumn/Fall Fashion Week Inspired Makeup & Hair Looks to Try
If we had a nickel for every time we saw models walking with muted makeup, undone waves or sleek ponytails for autumn/fall fashion shows, we would have billions by now. Unlike, spring/summer fashion shows were makeup and hair tend to go va va voom, since last seven years, fall inspired makeup on runways have become a little monotonous, predictable and just meh. Not this year though!
Brands such as Tom Ford went all out with bold and beautiful makeup and hair on their models and we couldn’t help but fangirl over everything. Look at our most favorite fall fashion look from the runways and recreate them at home to match your fall fashion outfits.
The Sexy Smoldering Smokey Look
Pat McGrath did Robert Farier’s makeup for Tom Ford’s show with very bold and loud iconic black smokey eyes and voluptuous clumpy eyelashes.

The makeup artist complemented the hair with vibrant sparkly dramatic eyes and muted lips. If you’re a party girl, it’s time to get your punk on and unleash your inner goth with bold hair and eyes.
The Glamorous Grunge
If you aren’t big on eyes and like keeping things minimal up there, you can have your grungy glamorous moment on your lips. Makeup artist Thomas de Kluyver used two bold lips colors in plum and forest green to create this statement lips. Who says fall colors only be worn on your eyes, try this for a change!
For fall 2018, all shades of green are having a big moment in makeup for both eyes and lips. Emerald, forest, teal, and sea-foam – everything with a touch of black, charcoal or plum is in style. Shorter hair with texturizing sprays and funky hair colors are predicted to make it down the streets. These sorts of hairstyles aren’t only easy to maintain but also go perfectly well with the casually chic fall vibe.
