As to be expected, Zara are doing the most with their latest AW17-18 drop. The collection falls nothing short of flattering cuts and snug dressing with a warm colour palette.
The brand have kept florals and bold patterns for the most of the collection and intertwined them with lace inserts and velvet – power dressing sharpened up.
Lace in good balance turns boldness into elegance. As I said, Zara are doing the most – they’re keeping autumn fashion bold, but with a fancy twist.
Lace inserts stood tall this summer and won’t be standing down as it gets colder.
Florals aren’t just for summer: these toned down floral blends, accompanied by splashes of velvet and shift material, are ideal for the collection’s theme.
It’s not time to ditch the summer colours or florals just yet; it’s simply time to adjust them.
The likes of tweed are associated with business wear and aristocratic geezers, but boundaries are to be broken in this season.
Tweed sets are a thing of the present, especially with these colour spins and cuts.
You’ve probably got some cable knit left in your wardrobe from last year, but that doesn’t mean Zara’s latest jumpers aren’t worth the pennies.
Cable knit is an autumn (and winter) classic and clearly, as evergreen as ever in 2017.
