The Social Metro: Fall 2016 Trends

As summer winds down and Fall 2016 is on the horizon, the change in seasons welcomes a change in fashions. In fashion, change is the only constant. It may be subtle or groundbreaking, but it’s the one inevitable in an industry dependent on reinvention. Designers strive season after season to engage and excite our imaginations and rethink how we dress. It fuels our insatiable curiosity for what’s next and flames their desire to deliver on the dreams fashion promises. So it’s now time to readjust your eye to the season’s over-the-top glamour, exaggerated silhouettes and street smart chic.

With all these heady thoughts swirling like leaves in the wind, be your own agent of change and let your own unique style lead the way.

Many of our key Fall 2016 trends were featured in the Detroit Institute of Arts/Founder’s Junior Council fashion extravaganza “Fash Bash” on August 11th again curated by Neiman Marcus Senior Vice President and Fashion Director, Ken Downing.
