Vida Leche Amor – Fall/ Winter 2017
With October finally here and autumn leaves starting to show, it’s the perfect time to start breaking out that fall wardrobe. As always, Vida Leche Amor is here to report on the trends that will get you through the next two seasons.
Candy Apple Red
First on the top of both ours and Pantone’s list is RED. What color can give more confidence and garner more attention? Nearly every designer, including Victoria Beckham, whose dress is pictured below, included a statement red piece in their collection, which has Harper’s Bazaar dubbing it the color of the season. Whether you rock a bold red lipstick or a little red dress, be sure to incorporate this vibrant color into your wardrobe to stand out among the crowd. Looking to add some new additions to your closet? Check out our Scarlett bump and breastfeeding friendly dress!
Taking it from matte to metallic, designers like Zimmerman (pictured below), filled the runway with shimmering silver. Maybe it isn’t the easiest to find a shiny silver shirt, but this color can be incorporated in so many ways! Silver shoes, handbags, and accessories never go out of style. Consider a teething necklace that will not only make you look stylish, but give baby something to grasp and chew! This new trend will be perfect when deciding on a New Year’s Eve look.
Forget what everyone says, black is the new black. To revamp this color, we’re seeing a simple change in fabric- leather. This season’s fashion weeks all around the world have been about creating a total matrix essence. Black leather jackets, dresses, boots and handbags are going to be filling the streets like never before. If you’re considered about ethical issues, don’t worry we have your back. Our Nova and Jetta tops are not only show stopping, but made out of vegan leather and completely guilt free! They're also bump friendly. (Akris dress shown below.)
From Tommy Hilfiger (pictured below), to Alexander McQueen, designers are having fun with fabrics. Citing folklore as the influence, New York Fashion Week showcased many designs that were a mixture of different patterns and fabrics. If you’re thinking that these designs may be too bold for you, first try a top that has a different patterns, but still one solid fabric – whatever you’re comfortable with that gives you confidence! Check out our Adira pregnancy-friendly nursing top that taps into this trend perfectly.

Dark Romance Florals
Is it possible to have a season that doesn’t include at least one floral trend? We don’t think so, and neither do the experts. Transition your closet for summer to fall with darker tones inspired by the flowers that will be blooming this season. To get a better idea of what differentiates the spring florals from fall, keep an eye out for Pantone’s Navy Peony, Tawny Port, or Shaded Spruce colors. If you’ve been sporting Wren all summer, consider swapping it with Blossom for the colder seasons! (Prabal Gurung pictured below.)
Women Taking on a Man’s World
Just because there’s a transition in weather doesn’t mean you have to pack up all of your summer clothes. That’s why we love adding layers! Although it’s been a year since the election, countless designers were inspired by Hillary Rodham Clinton’s powerful attire. Blazers and pantsuits are straying from typical fitted form to broadened shoulders. The change in style is intended to make a statement whether you’re on the street or in the boardroom. This trend allows you to pair your favorite shirt with a blazer and command whatever comes your way. (Versace pictured below.)
Does the phrase less is more apply to clothing too? The sheer trend is all about showing off what’s underneath, but we have tips to play it safe while looking fabulous. If you’re looking to experiment with this daring trend, try an oversized sheer dress with a fashionable slip underneath. You could also pair a sheer tank top with a long-sleeved blouse to mix it up. Still not sold? There are plenty of designs out there that already play with this layering to create added elements for a fun and flirty look. If you want to mimic this look with subtlety, our Zoey top is a great breastfeeding-friendly choice! Or try our Sloane bump and breastfeeding-friendly dress for nighttime and special occasions.

With all of the cold weather sure to come, we hope you find the perfect look that stays true to your style!
