Trends: Autumn – Winter 2016/17
Back to this winter’s trends, this time I will talk about 5 different trends so you can choose and buy the ones you think are best for your figure. Remember that you don’t need to only wear trendy clothes, most of the time being on vogue also means wearing the wrong clothes for your body type; fortunately, this year, you have many options to choose from.
The (military) coat
With golden buttons, frog fastenings, medals and military shoulders; this coats reminds us of Napoleon or the English privateers’ troops but also the navy and army troops, this time in a “luxury” version, they are a must for this autumn/winter.
The ballet dancer
Light and fluid silks, tulle, everything feminine, it makes you feel part of a fairy tale!
But be careful, many of us look pale – and not romantic at all – wearing light dusty pink or beige colors, thank goodness Valentino and Junya Watanabe offer us a dark option for this beautiful trend… meaning romantic clothes don’t always have to be pink.
Artisan and important necklines
Taking inspiration from the history of costume, our designers have created wonderful lace and crochet necklines, some of them are furs (ecological fur would be better), to be used over any kind of top! It only has to be eye-catching or, a better word, ostentatious 😉
If you are a “petite woman” don’t wear a big neckline, proportions are important for a great image!
Prince of Galles, Pied de poule and Tweed
They are back (as always) and most designers have claimed the power of these beautiful fabrics.
You can always choose the classic suit, or wear a total look with a skirt. You don’t necessarily have to look as if you have just came out of a tailor’s shop or feel boring, make it modern by wearing it with a neckline like the ones I have just talked about, or with a bright colored top, or you can dare to wear a grunge look, like the Etro’s model in the picture below!
Yes, they are back, and to tell you the truth I am not really enthusiastic about it… someone has called this period “the sexy 80’s” for its plunging necklines, the miniskirts and very narrow waistlines, but let’s not forget the wide shoulder pads, the lurex (a fabric containing a thin metallic thread, which gives it a glittering appearance) and all those see-through fabrics… in conclusion, if you don’t want to go unnoticed, this is your style!
