Winter is here and there’s no denying the chill in the air.
Yes, it’s time to bundle up, but there’s no need to sacrifice fashion for function this year; there are plenty of snug styles and cozy accessories to keep you warm and looking good throughout the season.
Easy wear continues to be big, we’ll still be wrapping up warm in cozy clothes that make us feel safe; the cape and the blanket come to mind, easy pieces to whip on and off.
The overall trend is towards real clothes that are easy to throw on and a way of dialing seduction down to the everyday, but fashion didn’t forget about fun, color and glamour.
This winter calls for lots of texture
in our outerwear and accessories. The fabric of choice for most designers this season is bouclé wool, along with plenty of suede, sueded fabrics and fun faux furs for coats and jackets. The texture trend does not stop there. We see bouclé wool mittens and socks, along with loads of fun fur wraps and stoles to add to the aesthetic layering and cozy factor to battle the elements.
The print of the season is Animal.
There was a huge array of animal prints prowling over the runways across NYC, London, Milan, and Paris this year. Coats, dresses, pants, handbags, scarves and shoes, in leopard, zebra, cow, croc, cheetah or snake prints were all on show, but it’s the leopard who is the king of the jungle this season!<
