(I do know what designer each piece is from, i just dont have time to post it right now. im just trying to get this post up because i have to study! i will post them later, but if you really want to know who a certain piece is by, just email me!)
- In keeping with back to the 80s, bigger is apparently better as far as shoulders! Thankfully, from what I can tell, these shoulder pads wont make you look like a linebacker, but have a grace that really appears slimming. The look is often contoured down towards the waist so it doesn't have a bulky look at all.
- Forget everything you know about metallics and sequins being just for the night. Designers are breaking them out for the daytime and bringing some much needed sparkle to gloomy (and often gray) fall and winter weather.
- Pink was all over the runway looking chic on everything. If you're a little scared to be pretty in pink, start slow with just a hot pink bag or shoes.
- Big, chunky knits. Mixing color and pattern, layering of chunky knits over leggings was all over the runway. This look keeps with the shoulder pad look..its really popular right now to create the inverted triangle look, tapering down to a tiny waist. Also making a statement on the runways were knit and fur cowls.
- Over-the-knee boots dominated the runway in New York, Milan and Paris. Worn like leggings with the ever-present bold-shouldered jacket and mini skirt.
- Leggings Liquid leggings and shiny tights will be the standout choices for this season, but fishnets, ribbed knit tights, and animal prints are all important layering pieces.
- Leather. Jackets and pants...preferably NOT together (please)
2. American Movie Classics
- Button-down shirts nipped at the waist as shown by Ralph Lauren are reminiscent of Katherine Hepburn in the mid 1900s. when paired with slouchy menswear trousers or cigarette pants it is ultra-chic.
- The little black dress, of course. Always in style. Also seeing a lot of sheath dresses.
- Novelty patterns Create the layered effect that is so prominent this season. Tweed, plaid, and pinstripe are just a few of the patterns seen on the runways that evoke memories of classic American film stars.
3. Barely there Boudoir
- Lacy Bralettes
- Pairing something lacy, sheer and tight with slouchy pants or a men's jacket.
