There are a few very interesting directions I noticed popping up for this colder season, that are worth going deeper into.
In any way this is not a call to be a 'fashion victim' sought after the 'latest' and the 'newest'; I am not focusing on particular brands for my selection of images (Ok, maybe preferences have been given to smaller, fresher brands, or those who did something outlandish to them (yay, Karl!)).
Also, remember, that new ideas in fashion are generated in the Indie world, and only later, marketed by the mass producers, and acquiring your fashion fixes locally is key...
Here we go!
Still around from 2 seasons ago:
Some of the last fall's nicer ideas are back again- like outfits quite directly translated from Menswear ; or Layered look with very contrasting textures (boho, or not); the Maxis (long, forgiving coats and dresses)
|Layers and Contrast (all seasons, night+day - in one)|
|Menswear translations - beehive optional...|
|Grey - no gold and visor in sight...|
|Good for work...|
|.. and fun|
|..and LBD occasions|
FAUX, not Fox....
Fashion, unfortunately, still uses a lot of pelts. But the good news to me this fall, was that some brands, which usually put out alot of fur clothing each time, actually discovered Faux. Faux definitely made its entry this year, being used as trims, adornments, accessories or clothing itself. Natural fur is beautiful on animals that are born with it. If you have to wear fur, pls, make it vintage or re-claimed.... And yes, same goes for leather...
Here are some absolutely adorable fauxes:
Here we are - hope we all have a good fall. Enjoy the season, dress the way it makes you happy - and more importantly - dress warm!
