Sophisticated, elegant and retro modern are words that best describe the new season. Statement wool coats, chic city capes, tailored denim and suede or soft knitted separates appear like cut out from the glossiest vintage magazines. Luxe details and avant-garde accessories compliment fall 2015’s iconic looks. Find these fab pieces from online retailers such as Ted Baker, Ann Taylor and Union Jack Boots. It’s time to make your wardrobe more grown up.
The most important piece of the season, the coat defines your whole look. Be careful to choose a style that reflects the real you. A midi length belted coat elongates the silhouette in an exquisite way while a minimalist short coat creates a clean & ultra-modern look. Choose the season’s signature colors to double the effect.
RETRO SUEDE: Trenches, crop jackets, skirts and even jeans in tan colored suede are the feminine alternative to the ultra-tough urban leather “movement”. Look for structured shapes and leave the fringes for boho enthusiasts.
TAILORED DENIM: Lean silhouettes, impeccable tailoring and not a random detail are the requirements for the new denim pieces. Leave the distressed boyfriend jeans for next summer and embrace your inner “Charlie’s angel” this fall.
CITY CAPES: Luxe layering is the ultimate dress code for the cold weather season. A comfortable blanket cape it’s a must-have piece for a chic transition style. Look for a classic pattern or a monochromatic cape to elevate a casual outfit.
HEAD-TO-TOE KNITS: It’s officially sweater time and runway shows turned this piece from basic to IT-piece. Enrich your wardrobe with cable knitted jumpers, jacquard dresses and rib knitted skirts and trousers. This season, head-to-toe knits is the most daring (and comfortable) trend to try. Keep the look clean with minimalistic shoes and accessories.
And what about the matching shoe trends? We have compiled a list of 6 footwear pieces that highlight the season’s main themes. Pair your utility chic style with work boots in bold textured leather, while the 70s retro look is best teamed with platform boots or lady loafers. The stiletto ankle boots are timeless wardrobe staple and the same thing go for the sneaker shoe. For urban casual styles try an updated style be it high top cut or dark leather.
