Here are some basic instincts:
This season, undoubtedly, dictates a necessary addition of metallics and structured shapes wot your wardrobe. Structure and texture adds character to anything from a homes, car and even something so simple such as a haircut so why not make the addition to our wardrobe! Anything from length, fabrics and levels of formality were experimented with. It was almost a a requirement for each fashion show to feature at least one outfit consisting of sheer, chiffon, lace, sequin, three piece / androgynous suits, shirt dresses and oversize hats. Designers must be bold in order to showcase unique and monumental designers to distinguish them from their competitors, however this fashion week designers kept to more practical ready to wear collections.
During your outfit selection, do keep in mind that this season’s latest trend emulates that of the past meaning that classic staple items should not be replaced, but rather enhanced with additions such as bows, ruffles, lace etc. We’d never suggest that you go out and buy an entire new wardrobe, simply refreshing and upgrading your look with fresh bits and pieces of what this season has to offer. Like this piece below from Alexander McQueen's Spring 2009 collection, designers from Balenciaga to Alexander Hercovitche and Chado Ralph Rucci added their own twist to prepare us for the future of style versus the very cliche revamped renditions from the 20's through the 70's.
In closing, wear your looks in confidence and always remember to wear the clothes and don't let the clothes wear you! You are now officially updated and certified by The Fashion Reporter.
