The AboutHer fashion team feels with you when it comes to picking out some new pieces for your wardrobe. So to help you out, we’ve rounded up four of the biggest trends to make things easier while deciding what you want your fashion vibes to be. Do you want to rock a versatile power suit or slay in a delicate leather piece? Or perhaps you’re looking for a practical yet stylish way to ward off the rain. We have all the inspiration to help you start that must-have shopping list.
Here are four of the biggest trends to note (and buy) now.
If you’re ever in a tizzy about what to wear to work, remember you can’t go wrong in a suit, and the bonus is it’s one of this season’s biggest trends. Victoria Beckham, Alexander Wang and Alexander McQueen put their spin on the trend, and many others think we should get a power suit stat too. Whether double breasted, with pronounced shoulders, with fitted jackets, slim cut and nipped in or with checks, there’s a lot of choice. Worn with sneakers or with cowboy boots, as seen at Calvin Klein, the decent tailoring trend is meant for out of office activities too.
Prepare to buy some belt racks; these accessories are definitely back with a bang. Strapping in is one of the best ways to channel some power dressing, as highlighting a womanly waist looks feminine yet commanding. Whether wide, like at Isabel Marant, or skinny, just check out Miu Miu’s take, everything is cinched in, from knits and coats to shirts. Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, Prada and Hermès were some of the other labels that declared the waist is the zone to focus on.
When you think of leather does an image of a biker, punk or teenager automatically pop into your head? Well, think again because this season leather has turned extremely ladylike. Labels like Valentino, Hermès, Tod’s and Proenza Schouler were some of the labels that showed how classy and grown-up leather can look. Coming in butter-soft options like the finest glove nappa, there was an array of colours, including ultra feminine pink and purple. If you opt for lighter tones, you can even go for a head-to-toe look.
Nylons coats provide the best chic outerwear, especially the Arab region where it doesn’t get cold enough to wear puffer or shearling jackets, but can get nippy and rain. They are very wearable and extremely practical go-to options as you can bung them in your suitcase without worrying about wrinkles. Plus, they look absolutely fantastic full length. Michael Kors, Stella McCartney, Céline, Christian Dior and Versace featured the nylon coat trend on their runways.
