3. Keep it Short
This couture season sets the return of two very simple & classic hairstyles for woman. One of them is (very) short hair. Be it pixie cut at Viktor & Rolf or short bobs at Chanel, models were seen striding the runway in hair cut several inches above their shoulders. Not only is this trend classy & chic, it also very easy to and time saving. Short hair is synonymous to power in many cases.
Be it Anna Wintour( Editor-in-chief, Vogue USA), Hilary Clinton ( Politian, USA), Indra Noori (CEO, PepsiCo), they have all kept their hair short simple and elegant.
4. Plait It
For those who are not willing to chop off their hair, the couture season saw the resurgence of another hairstyle, the plait. A messy fishtail? A loose plait? A plaited updo? Pick which ever style you like, but just make sure you keep the rest of your minimal. This trend is perfect for the ladies who love to look put-together but do now wish to go all out.
Crowns are back and here to stay. And really we don’t mind them if they are as dainty & chic as the ones on the Versace & Zuhair Murad runway. They are no longer a little girl’s toy, or belong to a teen birthday party. So girls, its time for the crowning glory, buy a crown this fall & look like a princess. Make your pick, be it big and gold like the ones seen on the Elie Saab runway or delicate and floral like the ones seen on Versace.

In the past metallic eye shadows lost have their shine in the nude makeup trend. But things are a bit different this couture season, metallic eyes are making a comeback and outshining other eye makeup trends for the fall season. Fendi, Elie Saab, Versace all fell for this trend and brought shimmer back onto the runway.
7. Golden Glamour
Another color that seems to shine brightly this couture season is Gold. Be it in the form of accessories or the clothes themselves, designers expressed their love for gold in all forms. Alberta Ferretti used it in intricate embroidery and lace while Elie Saab went all in & made it a golden day. Gold seems to be the choice for evening gowns, so ladies put on your golden top and dresses and leave the accessories at home.
8. Black Beauty
Keeping the best for the last, let’s move on to trend that is simplest and the chicest trend to follow this fall season. And it’s none other than Head-to-toe black. Winter is Coming!
