Women’s fashion for Fall-Winter dresses 2017-2018 reflects all trends of the current season. Here you will find velvet and feathers, leather and vinyl, polka dots with an unsinkable classic plaid and checkered print, and a romantic flounces and a very usable denim. A landmark trend is the gradual lengthening of dresses, because this season mini is presented not that massively as before, but midi and maxi dresses appear in all their glory.
Irresistible femininity: velvet dresses
Even after many seasons in the ranking of hot fashion trends, the amount of velvet on the runway is not decreasing, but its functional and stylistic possibilities are expanding. Of course, this is a fabric for evening dresses, but over time designers have learned to make velvet more practical, adapting these dresses to casual style.
The fringe in clothes has long ceased to be an indicator of only a cowboy or retro-style from the 1920s. The new fringe appears on knitted, gothic, evening and cocktail dresses, decorating both the hem of the skirt and the cuffs. A very long fringe is in vogue as well.
Ballet inspiration: dresses with feathers
Long thick feathers are present in the Fall-Winter season 2017-2018 on the same rights as decorative fur or fringe. All of them make clothes more textured, voluminous, you want to touch and look at it. Dresses with feathers, reminiscent of ballerina tutus or theatrical outfits, these are evening and cocktail apparels.
Folk fashion: ethnic dresses
Folk fashion came to the fore, significantly transformed and saturated with colors, compared to the previous season. Now we see on the runway not just ethnic tunics dresses or boho chic style. The mannequins showed off luxurious dresses in ethnic style, combining the features of the Slavic, Eastern, Latin American national costume, interpreted according to the current trends of our time.

Warm knitted dresses
We have become accustomed to the fact that knitted dresses are not only elongated sweaters, shapeless and baggy. Modern knitwear are no less diverse than dresses from other fabrics. They can be both classic cozy, which is typical for this kind of clothes, and exquisite, fancy, daring, ultra-modern, decorated with fringes, appliqués, pleating.
Glowing satin dresses
The gentle noble radiance of the satin fabric continues to tempt the minds of fashion designers who repeatedly bring to the runway models, dressed in satin evening and cocktail gowns. Some of them look touching and tender, other apparels look mature and feminine.
Plaid and checkered dresses
A fashionable plaid dress is a truly indestructible trend. This is understandable, because the plaid is only a general definition for this print, which contains a lot of patterns, combinations and a variety of colors.
Vintage-like polka-dot dresses
The print “pea” is less beaten, more unambiguous and yet one-color for fashionable dresses. This is not surprising, because dresses in polka dots are one of the echoes of retro style, returned to the mass fashion just now, and they will have enough time to prove themselves as it was once possible to do the aforementioned cage and strip.
Stylish and warm: long sleeve dresses
Fall and winter is the time for warming up, which is not necessarily limited to knitted dresses with a sleeve down to the wrist. We have already noted how popular one shaded or patterned dresses with long sleeves are. Many famous women perfectly adapted them to their evening looks.
Weightless tenderness: airy see-through and tulle dresses
Under the transparent tissues of a weightless texture we can see the skin, which fashion designers envelop in single- or multi-layered fluffy draperies. New dresses made of translucent fabrics, including a gentle tulle, become the real style challenge to the Fall-Winter season, which is habitual to the knitwear, fur and leather.
Texture and volume: multi-tiered dresses
Obviously, the trend for multi-tiered skirts is gradually declining, and this is clearly seen on the runway. But for the current time, the trend is alive, this means we can wear dresses with stunning lush skirts, that look like wedding cakes or incredible rococo ladies’ gowns.
Rock and roll style: leather and vinyl dresses
Trendy leather or vinyl dresses are greatly reinterpreted from the past seasons. Now we can wear not only simple pencil dresses, but also pretty cocktail gowns in color block style and soft pastel shades, dresses with pleating and other fancy cuts and designs.
