XXL outerwear: puffer coats and down jackets

It seems that designers turned to the adherents of the eco-friendly fashion, who refuse the natural leather of raincoats and sheepskin coats, trying to be stylish in clothing and accessories without them. A lot of oversized coats and puffer jackets have an asymmetric cut with a wrap.

Cold shine of metallic silver clothing

Apparently, gold finally surrendered under a powerful onslaught of silver. Its amazingly seductive futuristic cold glow with an imitation of a liquid silver mass, a glamor glitter of glitter, began to drive us crazy a few seasons ago. And now we see that it is impossible to be really fashionable without a silver thing in the wardrobe, whether it’s a dress, a practical raincoat, cute ankle boots or an evening purse.

Ethnic or folk clothing style

Many women adore the ethnic style, but, alas, they hesitate to wear these feminine boho pieces. The folk style in clothes and accessories manifested itself very loudly, being on the runway noticeable, expressive.

Cocktail and evening trend: feather embellishment

This is a trend applicable to the evening style in dresses with feather bodice embellishment; also it can be adapted to bold cocktail dresses with feather trim on the skirt. Bags and shoes also didn’t escape this fashion tendency.

Breath of the 90s: double denim

The trend comes from the 90s, whose opponents are almost more multiple than adherents. This Fall-Winter season all fashionistas are cautiously asking: so is it worth wearing a double denim? Wouldn’t this be a fashion crime? And the designers give an unambiguous answer: yes, this is a big trend, which you can and should follow, putting on jeans and denim skirts with denim shirts and jackets together.

Transparent plastic in the outerwear

We replaced the natural fur with faux one, the genuine leather with vinyl, and now we are starting to wear coats and jackets made of transparent plastic. Not very environmentally friendly, but it is beautiful and relevant in terms of the current trends of the season.

Bright colorful fur

For the year in a row, we are witnessing a permanent renewal of fur trends. It was deliberately artificial fur, similar to this one, used in plush toys, colored natural fur and bright faux fur. The latter decorates the outerwear and accessories, allowing to make a long-term winter not so boring colorless.

Office minimalism in casual wardrobe

There was a time when girls, obsessed with fashion, were maniacally trying to make their office wardrobe more stylish and feminine. Now we are witnessing a transformed trend, according to which an office wardrobe based on the strict gray or beige suits with simple oversized blazers become a new casual style.

Vintage glamour: polka dot print

We have been waited a long time for this, and it finally happened. Along with the ubiquitous stripe and multifaceted plaid the polka dot returned to the fashion world. This pattern is inextricably linked with 40s and 50s era. Polka dot dresses, blouses and skirts have a unique charm of a vintage style.

Blanket outerwear style

Who would have thought that wrapping in a blanket would be an out-of-the-bedroom fashion trend?. Coats and jackets become like large quilts, and bags and scarves take on the features of cozy knitted blankets.

Stylish working woman

This style echoes with the mentioned above strict office look, but not identical to it. The look of a business woman becomes very popular. It can be showed off in different ways, and not necessarily with the help of a classic suit. Most often, the emphasis is on femininity, which is easily achieved with a pencil skirt or pleated pattern in combination with a blouse, shirt, sweater or cardigan.

Modern casual sports chic

The introduction of sporty style with its color block tops, bombers, pants with stripes continues. Modern sport-chic gradually loses its general asexual practicality, becoming increasingly feminized.

Color block contrasts

Sharp color accents coexist both in one wardrobe piece and in the whole look, thanks to the combination of top and bottom of different bright shades.

High volumes and shoulder pads in blazers and jackets

We return again back to the 80s with their pads, which make the silhouette rigid and man-like. Don’t pay attention to it, if you have already wide shoulders and short neck. If your figure allows you to add a little volume to the upper body area, then dare – jackets and blouses with pronounced shoulders will become your new fashion must have.

Animal print: leopard total look

How much can we go into rhapsodies over leopard print, widely displayed on the runway again? It seems, at least until next spring, we will study its ability to combine, adapting leopard coats to everyday looks. Moreover, we have noticed a lot of total look based on leopard pattern, which we hadn’t seen before.

Cropped outerwear: short jackets and blazers

Girls who had an inexplicable passion for wearing super-short jackets in winter, can rejoice. Following the crop top trend designers made a fresh runway phenomenon – crop jackets, including leather, fur, puffer ones.

Plaid and checkered pattern

Cage, like a leopard, you can sing praises infinitely, because the stylistic possibilities of this print are truly endless. In addition to the classic tartan tartan or English cage, there is a libertine cage or a large and primitive checkerboard.

Quilted clothing

Quilted outerwear, hoodies, down jackets, skirts, sweatshirts – all these wardrobe pieces come deeper into our everyday fashion. The trend was born a couple of seasons ago and was adopted ambiguously, but the designer brands left us no chance. We have to pay attention to the quilted clothing and they will make our casual outfit edgy and non-trivial.
