When fall comes, layers can make or break an outfit. Keep things simple and opt for a statement jacket which can complement many looks you already own. Lucky for you, this season, designers prepared a lot of different styles to choose and play with.
In the last couple of years, trends have become more utilitarian and comfortable. Yet for fall 2017, you’ll notice a lot of playful models, vibrant colors, and glamorous touches. It’s the season when more is more!
You can try classic leather jackets, romantic suede or glamorous furs. You can add sport elements like cozy tracksuit, puffer jacket or nylon athleisure jackets to a white t-shirt and jeans combo. And for futuristic ensembles, wear suit jackets with pointy oversized shoulders and vinyl items.
Vegan leather and suede
The main trend every fall is the sexy faux rock ‘n’ roll leather jacket. It can be black or brown. It can be a vintage heirloom or studded and new. But it can also be ‘70s suede with fringes, flower embellishments, or fake fur collars- Shearling-style.
These jackets are classic symbols of the cold season and you must own two to define any on-stage appearance. It’s best to own a couple so to change between them and not use one more than the other.
The cropped model with a knitted top and high waist checkered trousers and kitten heels will definitely turn heads. The matte pleather minimalist style can be a nice touch.
Wear it with androgynous ripped black t-shirts and jeans.
And change it in romantic outfits with flower printed dresses and knee-high boots.
Once you have your classics established, it’s time you paid attention to statement models for special occasions. One is a burgundy suede studded jacket which you can wear both on and off stage. Style it beginning with an burgundy, black leather leggings and silver booties.
The IT statement jacket
If suede is not enough for you, designers prepared a lot of velvet models in dark blue, purple or green. Velvet is not for everybody, but you can own it with the right attitude, a silky blouse, a long scarf, and a leather dress. The favorite color combo for this fall is a dark blue jacket and trousers, pearly golden-yellow shoes, and dusty orange blouse.
Another choice can be colorful funky furs. Think bold pink and purple or go for yellow, green and red and you’re on the right track. This season, designers invite you to play with fake rainbow fur to brighten any black or grey outfit and show a bubbly personality.
If you don’t want to max out your card, invest in mass-market models inspired by what luxury brands like Chanel, Oscar de la Renta, Zimmermann, Victoria Beckham, Balmain, Loewe, and Saint Laurent launched on the catwalk. Classic statement jackets to choose between are checkered tweed jackets, quilted sport jackets, denim jackets, military jackets, oversized coats, trench coats, metallic blazers, colorful patchwork, shearlings and faux furs in traditional black, brown and blue, or opt for bright bold colors, or animal prints and camouflage. Just about anything goes this fall. Check department stores, thrift stores, and online to see what you can find!
Fall 2017 has a little something for everybody, no matter if you’re looking for funky, grungy or classic!
