What’s in for fashion this season, Cristina? Girls from the job, my girlfriends and also my mom’s friends ask me this question. Well, here are the chicest of the chic in the fall/winter 2014/2015 collection. It’s all about warming up to fleecy shearlings and cozy knits, modern takes of 60′s silhouettes and sheer fabrics here and there.
My 2 personal favourites?
One is cuddling shearlings. Cuddling sums it up.
The second is head-to-toe wool. Think sweater with wooly leggings, jumper dress with a deep V-neck or an enormous scarf, super-sized knit tunic with large knit trousers. You can go safe in earthly shades (from camel to grey and even the unexpected, yet chic combination of these two), or you can put a little show with colourful, 3D patterns in conceptual, architectural designs. Find the shape that suits you better, but don’t forget to make it maxi, knitted, comfy, fuzzy and (yay!) warm.
Burberry made cape cool again. To the level of having your initials on it. But even if we don’t have letters on our capes, we can all still be superman or batman now. It is versatile, it is girlie, it is flirty and it makes waves all over the place. Literally. I haven’t loved and worn them for as long as I can remember for nothing.
Speaking of suits. Trousers suits… You can count on tailoring now. This time around, though, it’s not just about mens’ inspired fashion. The lines are still strict, yet the fluid femininity brought by the loose cuts, the intense hues and the 80’s touch make them softer and appropriate for both a bord meeting and a cocktail bar date.
It is something sexy about a waist of a woman and the 60’s silhouette celebrates just that. And a little bit of legs, ha!. Whenever wearing this, you have to feel this. You have to stand straight, wave your hair and have
on your mind.
Prints and colours are very in. But then again, when are they ever out? It’s like with black. It’s always there. So there!
It’s all just a matter of choices…
