TRENDS: FALL / WINTER 2017-18 RECAP

Hey friends, quick little recap here on some of some of our favourite trends of the current season. Keep in mind that runway often doesn't equal 'real-way' these trends are meant to be used as a guideline, to inspire and to incorporate into your lifestyle. 

VINTAGE FUR: Whether it be faux or real, do what feels right to you. Inspiration comes from the glam silhouettes and details of 40s and 50s including large collars, pearl/beads, and belted waists. Styling Tip: Don't think to much about what to wear it with, think like the street style bloggers and pair it with leather leggings and white sneakers or wear it styled for evening with OTK boots*

PLASTICS: This trend has been slowly coming in for the last couple of years with the intro of lucite heels, bags and accessories. Now it's coming in full force with clear coats, boots and dresses. Styling Tip: Start slow and try with athletic pieces like a zip up bomber or a clear pump (see here)

FALL FLORALS: Florals are not new, we know that, but Gucci is bringing then in hot and heavy! Metallic, bright, all over, and in your face! Just jump on the bandwagon and have some fun with this trend. Styling Tip: Mix and match your florals, this season makes it easy to not make mistakes because it all goes.

OVERSIZED BOMBERS: Bombers have been around for a while now but this season they are back in a big way. Oversized and tricked out. Styling Tip: Wear over dresses.

VICTORIAN OPULANCE: Romantic yet powerful. This trend brings together the feminine and the masculine, the pretty and punk, the bespoke and the couture. It's the perfect marriage of classics and fantasy. Styling Tip: Look for the embellishments; fur, appilque, beading, lace, tweed.

BELTED COATS: Last year it was all about the oversized silhouette in coats, this year it is more so about showing waist definition. You can go with the classic trench style or be creative and add a wide belt (also a trend this season). Styling Tip: If you already have a classic coat in black, camel or grey then have some fun with this trend and look for pink, green or burgandy.
