Fall and winter fashion don't always mean heritage plaids and chunky sweaters. In fact, this season, designers proved that whimsical fashion trends are the future, and our inner child is slightly freaking out. When we say "whimsical fashion," we mean it—metallics, feathers, the craziest crystal pieces you've ever seen, and, if you can believe it, even more.
Ahead, we are highlighting the most whimsical fashion moments we saw come down the F/W 19 runways thanks to designers like Gucci, Versace, Area, and Tom Ford. Call us dramatic, but we have a feeling some of the collections we reference here just might go down in history as the most romantic fashion moments of all time, which is why we wanted to make sure you had the opportunity to see the best looks—and to shop them as well.
Go on to see six of the most whimsical fashion moments from the F/W 19 collections and to shop the trends for yourself.
This season, the crazier the crystals the better. Don't be afraid of the embellishment dripping off of everything from party dresses to shoes.

Checks are the trend you truly never knew your closet needed. Whenever your look is in need of some sprucing, throw on a checkerboard print and call it a day.

Lace was a trend we saw sitting on the back burner for quite some time, but this season, that's all changing as dresses, tops, and even accessories are revamping the classic fabric.
