As the temperature drops, here’s what’s hot …
Metallic tones are always in the spotlight at this time of year, but silver is eclipsing gold for 2017. You can see this trend at the MTV Music Video Awards, where silver tones related to the astronaut prize, with a futuristic, modern look. Dare to shine!
Tartan print (plaid) is a classic for this season. For this year, however, the plaid points more toward the ’70s aesthetic in earth tones, mustard, oranges, and even bright shades. Very hippy chic! You can also match your outfit with a retro or vintage hat.
This trend is particularly big in the American market. Many designers (including Europeans with a lot of market share in the US) went with a Western look this season, using denim on denim.
With the return of the ’80s, we shouldn’t be surprised that this accessory is back. It’s also a great way to mark an hourglass silhouette by highlighting your waist, whether you wear the belt over a sweater or over a coat.
Forget looking for the exact, fitted size this fall-winter. Oversized coats and jackets are in (shoulder pads included); yes, the ones that look like you borrowed them from your boyfriend or husband (because the masculine touch is also in style). It also applies to sweaters, although you shouldn’t use the ones that are oversized because they are old and all stretched out.
Red and burgundy
No surprise here, but these colors are still in style for this fall. Together or separate, they are very rich colors that will give life to the traditional black, gray, and navy blue. Step out of the typical and be the girl in red, even just for a day.
