Blazers and Jackets : This year, Milan’s top designers presented a slew of must have blazers and jackets. We love that these layering pieces are so versatile and that they can be styled in many different ways beyond the office. For those who prefer a stronger more masculine look we recommend sticking with darker colors and oversized silhouettes. And for those who prefer a softer more feminine look try brighter hues in fabrics that drape and move with you.
Dresses and Skirts: The same can be said for skirts and dresses in regards to strong and masculine versus soft and feminine… Layering them with blazers and jackets is always a fashionable choice where you can manipulate the mood of your look through colors, shapes and textures.
Pants and Jumpsuits: It will be a sad day when jumpsuits are no longer in style so we are pleased that designers are still moving forward with these super comfortable and chic styles. Here, leather pants accentuate the strength of women, while, conversely, the softer materials highlight the beauty and softness of women.
London Fashion Week presented elegant styles that are wearable in your everyday wardrobe. Below are some highlights from Roland Mouret, Burberry and Vivienne Westwood.
These are our top picks from Roland Mouret’s collection. The dynamic patterns and colors of this ultrachic long coat will brighten up any look while adding an element of elegance from denim to evening wear. While Roland Mouret is finally delving into menswear (we’ve been waiting for this moment!) the black long coat is a great unisex addition to anyone’s closet, especially in this age of oversized man-tailored womenswear. Lastly, this stunning jacket will catch everyone’s eye. The beautifully classic combination of red and black coupled with impeccable draping never ceases to create a fresh look each season.
Burberry has always presented classically elegant designs in their collections and these two examples showcase the timeless and daily wearability of the brand. Their classic double breasted trench coat is a basic “must have” and is fresh season-after-season with cool design elements such as iridescent luxe fabrics. The incorporation of texturized pastel fabrics in an always sexy pencil skirt will light up any wardrobe.
Vivienne Westwood did not disappoint this season with staple pinstripes and plaid patterns adorning oversized and double breasted jackets as seen here. Not only do all of these elements work together to keep this brand on trend, they do so while maintaining a level of maturity and luxury - with a true Vivienne Westwood edge.
Being the mother of two delicious and quirky little boys who are still young enough to be uninhibited, yet aware enough to feel the sting of not always fitting in, it is comforting to see that people of all differences are increasingly being included on the previously unforgiving runways of NYFW. Sending a big thanks to Chromat, Kim Shui, Tadashi Shoji, 11 HONORE, Prabal Grung and Rebecca Minkoff who showcased their collections on these beauties… And looking forward to seeing more diversity (both visible and not) during fashion week in the seasons to come. Happy Valentine’s Day❣️
