Since the fall/winter season is not yet over, it would be worth it to review the beautiful looks that the fashion designers have creatively produced for you.
Not everybody would want to appear like old admirals in the Salvation Army, but militant look was seen in many collections at fall/winter fashion shows. There are a lot of vests, gilded braids, big bold buttons, and short embroidered jackets. Colors range from combinations of gold, brown, black, and navy blue. Check out the Gucci and Moschino collection to get a detailed picture of this look.
Futuristic/Super Hero Look
Fashion designers give our inner heroes a chance to come out with short decorated jackets, sculpted collar dresses, and other interesting designs. Maybe you can blame Batman who showed up on the big screen once again or maybe designers like Rick Owens, Rodarte, Balenciaga, and Fendi think humanity needs a savior. Looking at their collections, all you need would be knee high boots or a cape, and you’re all set to save the world.
Bohemian Elegance and Spanish Lace
You can also wear touches of velvet and embroidered flowers to bring out the gipsy sensuality and historical romance in your outfit. If you want this look, it is best to wear black with optional braids and gilded buttons like what you can see in Christian Lacroix, Gucci, Givenchy, and Alexander McQueen.
The well-remembered neon colors of the 80’s continue to exist for this current winter season. So take out your glowing orange, pink, green, yellow and light blue outfits. When you combine it with eternal black, your look will be just right.
Clean Architectural Tailoring
Balenciaga, Yamamoto, Chanel, Lanvin, Valentino, and Calvin Klein designs reflect precise and exquisite detailing, as well as clean and plain architectural influences. The shapes are colored in white, grey and black tones.
The designers have revived the popular style of the 40’s which creates an instant waist line. The style carves your natural curves into stylish silhouettes. You will love Prada, Chanel, Lanvin, Yohji Yamamoto, YSL, Alexander McQueen, and John Galliano.
You can also wear velvet, sequins, beading, wool, fur, checks, tweed, and plaid in a blend of stitches or a pattern collage. Carolina Herrera, Sonia Rykiel, Stella McCartney, Michael Kors, Dries Van Noten, and D&G looks are great at this.
Also popular this season are bubble or egg skirts, excessive fabrics, cocoon coats, fine detailing with overlarge shoulders or collar, and gentle pleats. You can also try layers or fabric assembles which can create soft, rounded silhouettes narrowing at your knees or ankles.
For the next season, expect the bohemian, poetic tones to tone down the firm, conservative elegance. Colors will shift from harsh tones (like dark ink/charcoal tones) to a soft sparkling grey, mushroom, or shades of fawn.
Key elements for a woman’s closet should be waistcoats, darted cropped or cigarette-legged pants, striped shirts, tailored collar cardigans, shirttails with lavalieres and scarves, belted Jacquard jackets (oversized), bow ties, and other decorative elements. And as for accessories, the hottest trend would be lambskin gloves and natural leather bags
