Fall fashion doesn't always mean heritage plaids and chunky sweaters. In fact, this season, designers proved that whimsical fashion trends are the future, and the girly-girl inside all of us is slightly freaking out. When we say "whimsical fashion," we mean it—tulle confections, feather-adorned separates, the craziest faux fur 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 17 runways thanks to designers like Gucci, Miu Miu, Marni, and Prada. Call us dramatic, but we have a feeling some of the collections we reference here just might go down in history as the most whimsical 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 17 collections and to shop the trends for yourself.
This season, the crazier the faux fur, the better. Don't be afraid of unique colors like ballet pink or maybe even Grinch green.

Feeling a little saucy? We thought so. Opt for separates that have a lot of flair, including feather-adorned tops, watercolor skirts, and more.

There's no way a little rain is going to bring you down this fall season thanks to the handful of ultra-chic raincoats we saw on the runway. Our personal favorites? Clear coats with bold piping.

Tulle is a trend that never really goes out of style, so dare we call it timeless? I think so. Test out tulle skirts, dresses, tops, and the like for a head-turning ensemble that will never let you down.

Pantsuits were a huge trend on the runway this season, but naturally, Gucci took that trend one step further by showing pantsuits printed with all sorts of things. We particularly love the floral and striped versions.

Risky business? Nah—we'd rather have pretty business. Try layering feminine pieces underneath structured counterparts like blazers or with tailored trousers for an office look to remember.
