When summer disappears, the coats return from the war(drobes). But the disappearance of summer doesn’t immediately omit the disappearance of colour and one would be foolish to assume it did.
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.
With leather j’s being everyones AW go-to, it’s important to mix up designs.
AW17 isn’t the time for plain black jackets or fur collars; AW17 is the season of bold prints, scribbles, colours and patterns.
Keep it groovy, kids.
Crunchy leaves and a crisp wind indicate that winter’s warmer friend is back, and so will be thick knit jumpers and even thicker coats. Hello, autumn… And what’s more important than a wardrobe change parallel to season?
I’m thinking dark oranges on mom jeans and colourful furs on black jeans.
I’m also thinking confidently smart clothing and smartly comfortable clothing. Layering up is as much about comfort as it is look.
Brands are evolving with demands – Joni jeans with belt loops, softer knits on roll necks, longer aviators and even longer boots, to name a few – and thus, this year’s fits are to be as calm as the modest designs that autumn encourages.
