The idea of luxurious layering is to pair skirts with trousers to achieve the look. Why should you be confined to wearing one lovely piece when five look even lovelier? That is the thinking this season. When doing the look, make sure you use slim and cropped pants. Baggy and frumpy in this look will not work. If the thought of layering makes you feel uncomfortable, steam line the look by cinching your waist or choose a cropped jacket instead of a full-length style. Also, always wear heels with this look because you need to look long and lean as possible. Flats will make you look bulky.
The silhouette has softened when fashion have focused on the waist. Last season’s showy peplums give way to beautifully tailored curves and belted waists, creating an hourglass line that is super-feminine. The belt is one this season’s biggest accessory stories, whether cinching a sleek pencil dress or over a winter coat, the belt should be your choice.
This fall season, designers revisited all the country classics: corduroy jackets and jodhpurs, tweedy plus-fours, Fair Isle knits and sturdy leather boots. The familiar country dress codes of plaid, corduroy and traditional tailoring were seen throughout the collections, with dramatic coats best played out in utility fabrics and earthy colors. A classic pair of riding boots is the trend’s key accessory. Hats played a big role on the catwalk. Take tweed separates and pair them up with white shirts or playful printed T-shirts.
The Rise of Oversize
Oversize was the cool trend this season: shoulders dropped, lengths were long and trousers had low crotches. This look is ideal for a confident tomboy who likes to keep things simple and streamlined. The easiest way to oversize is to contrast volume with slimline structure with stylish opposites. Shy away from the accessories when playing in oversized – let your silhouette be the focus. Skinny cigarette pants are the perfect partner to a cocoon coat. It creates an elegant contrast. Wear your oversized coat one size up, then belt the waist if you feel a little overwhelmed.
