2019 Jeffrey Fashion Cares Recap: Tailored, Sequined, and Doc Martins

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 9/6/19

With what Jeff Kalinsky calls “sharp tailoring,” we loved the fall trends this year. From that long, tan coat that captured MY heart, to a throw-back to our high school Doc Martin days, to flashy sequins, we’ll take ALL of it. Could we wear that sequin dress we loved with our combat boots? Beyond the fashion show, good bites from Agency with their salmon chip to Grand Luxe with that delicious tuna poke “shot,” the fun cocktails from Tavern at Phipps, and, we enjoyed rubbing elbows with friends and Atlanta celebrities alike. Wow, the fashion off the runway was fabulous this year with bold colors and fashion forward attendees that really stepped up their fashion game. Everyone looked ready for this year’s fashion show!

Let’s jump into this year’s fall fashion trends straight from Kalinsky.

In 2019 the Fall runways were a complete shake up. Whether you prefer sharp tailoring, a dash of color, or a stand out accessory. Fall gave us a little something for every possible style : the sophisticated working woman, the bold risk-taker, and even those who’d prefer to stick to the classics.

Gauchos/culottes:  Gauchos are the MUST HAVE  bottom of the season. Hedi Slimane of Celine sent a statement down the runway. Gauchos in all different fabrics, and a range of colors.

Capes:  Capes were one of the strongest silhouettes this season. Leading the way was Hedi Slimane for Celine, but Burberry and Marc Jacobs also sent their chic versions down the catwalk. Capes proved to be heroic for every occasion.

Purple:  Purple hues shot down the runway from a mix of designers. STATEMENT faux furs from Tom Ford, and luxurious purple metallics from Dries Van Noten.

Statement Hats:  Hats, Hats, and more Hats! Maria Grazia of Dior went the bucket hat route, while brands like Marc Jacobs, Valentino, and Tom ford also featured their current take on the 2019 fall hat obsession. Hats of all shapes (and sizes) were the fashion accessory of the season!

Combat boots:  From practical to stylish, combat boots were the biggest Fall shoe trend of 2019. Versions from the likes of Gianvito Rossi, Celine, Saint Laurent, and Amiri! The classic combat was completely reinvented, making this your must have shoe for any look!

Until next year!
