Quilting is going to be a huge trend this fall, but we’re not just talking about puffy down jackets. This season, everything from bags, booties and sneakers to jackets, vests and sweaters, will be quilted. In the cooler weather, quilting totally makes sense. Think about it. Quilts keep you warm in bed, so quilted clothing will do the same. But when we say quilting, we don’t mean patchwork like that nasty old quilt in your grandmas guest bedroom, we mean diamond-stitched fabric, like the runway models are wearing in the photos above.
This isn’t really a new trend (Chanel has been making quilted bags for years), but right now it seems like every designer catching on including Balmain, Giuseppe Zanotti, Karl Lagerfeld and Vince Camuto. But no matter what designer we’re talking about, they all seem to have one thing in common: black leather. It’s totally dominating this trend, but just in case you aren’t a leather kind of gal, you can still wear the quilted look. We found the stitch on structured sweaters and skrits by Hinge, Charles Henry and Kenneth Cole, too.
It’ll be so easy to try out the trend this fall, since so many retailers are carrying quilted products, but if you’re busy and/or you don’t want to do the leg work to find the perfect quilted outfit or accessory, fear not. We’ve scoured the web for the best quilts around. All you have to do is shop them in our slideshow.
