The Same Old Boring Looks For Fall

In the movie The Devil Wears Prada, Miranda Priestly asks what’s new for spring and in reply is told floral.  She responds, “Floral for spring? Groundbreaking.”  Yes I knew this line by heart and yes this is also how I feel about falls upcoming military and preppy trends…yet again.

No matter how many times or how many fashion sources claim it’s the “new” military or preppy trend it is never any different.  Are we not over this yet?  I feel like it’s always the same.  Almost like clockwork.  Every fall we will be told to wear military inspired coats, Letterman jackets, plaids, and button downs.

For this fall, we are told the preppy varsity trend has essentially had an overhaul.  Except it hasn’t.  How many ways can we make plaid look different?  I’m not saying I don’t like these trends.  I wear both military and preppy pieces quite frequently.  It is just the way that various fashion sources claim them to be so different each fall when they aren’t.  I want to see a truly different military look or a unique preppy look, something that hasn’t been done before.  Let’s hope someone can inspire us with these looks!
