These top 5 fashion trends of the Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 season will surely keep you in style. Wether your a fashionista or just trying to expand your own personal collection of the season’s styles.
#1: Masculine vs Feminine Fashion
True, the trend today derives much of its impetus from fashion’s fixation with the late ’60s and early ’70s, as younger consumers, and those in their thrall, resurrect a moment when unisex was largely the province of rock royalty, the sequins-and-kimono-wearing likes of Jimi Hendrix and David Bowie.
The news is that the movement has gained traction and a measure of cool it hasn’t known since that earliest incarnation, its latter-day grooviness the outgrowth of a loosened-up cultural climate.
DKNY appears with some masculine designs, including the chunky boots and sweater over pinstripe suit combination, while Ralph Lauren comes in with a gorgeous plaid check blazer and brown comfort fit pants paired with a shirt and tie ensemble.
#2: Pleating Galore
Plissé pleats brought a lightness to the Couture shows in Paris. At Dior, a series of finale dresses were made from folding and cutting the micro-pleats, while Iris van Herpen crafted weightless dresses from tiny folds. Even J. Mendel’s hefty beaded gowns were finished with plissé flounces in a rainbow of hues.
#3: Loads of Leather
One concession designers did make to the season was layering turtlenecks and long-sleeve tops under sleeveless dresses and crop tops. The jumper trend was a natural extension, showing up in two-piece leather at 3.1 Phillip Lim and an ankle-skimming overall dress at the newly Alber Elbaz–less Lanvin.
#4: Denim Reinvented
Everybody has a favorite pair of jeans, but now designers are beginning to offer consumers more than just a simple go-to fashion staple. Jeans are becoming reinvented, evolving into fashion items that also provide additional functions and features such as enhancing one’s curves or connecting the wearer to the Internet, thereby turning jeans into the ultimate wardrobe essential.
The biggest news coming up in jeans? Cutting up your old jeans. Well, sort of. Designers like Moschino and Alexander Wang are reinventing denim up by cutting and sewing different pairs of jeans together to create a unique, artsy vibe. Just the perfect pair to wear with your chunky ankle boots.
