Fall/Winter 2017 Collections: Dare to Wear the New Power Mood

Fall/Winter 2017 collections

There’s a power in the Fall/Winter 2017 collections that is less about the clothes and more about how a woman wears them. This season, use fashion to express who you are in confident statement pieces in a rich new color palette that enhance your character. Stocking boots give an edge to layered dresses; leather dominates day wear; and skirts reveal a tough new energy when paired with authoritative knitwear. Dare to wear these reinvented classics and make them your own.

The Statement and Stocking Boot

Skin-tight, thigh-high and with towering heels, the stocking is the new shape of footwear in the Fall/Winter 2017 collections. Seductively vanishing beneath sweeping skirts or worn just above the knee over second-skin denim, these are the boots that are designed to be peeled off. This fall, statement boots are made for walking, dancing and pulling together every outfit. Reaching high into hemlines, stopping short at the ankle or falling into a relaxed slouch below the knee, be warned… one pair will never be enough.

Darling Shearling Jacket

Utterly timeless, highly-coveted, low-maintenance and UBER-luxe, it’s easy to see why the shearling jacket is such a runway favorite. Whether sharply cropped over a cashmere knit or worn oversized to dress down a metallic skirt, shearling is a versatile shortcut to uncomplicated and confident style. Associated with free-spirited women, like legendary pilot Amelia Earhart and rock ‘n roll muse Mariane Faithfull, it’s practical and hard-wearing – the eternal hero piece.

Give to Me Your Leather…

While a moto jacket will forever remain a wardrobe essential, the season leather has parked its rock ‘n roll associations in favor of something a little more sophisticated. Moving on from the biker domain to chic workwear, leather adopts a softer temperament in rich earth tones on silhouettes like ponchos, trench coats, vests and pants.

Shoe Slashings

New to the Fall/Winter 2017 collections, consider the slash shoe the sexier update of the glove style that dominated footwear last season. Whereas the glove cinched feet, the slash glides up them… rising from a point at the base of your toes and wrapping around the heel. These ’80s-inspired shoes gracefully elongate the foot which makes them an ideal partner to shorter hemlines, but they also add a racy spirit to the stirrup-pant revival.

Bold, Buoyant Berets

The power of the beret is such that simply putting it on will make you look more cultured, intellectual and artistic. Give a whimsical edge to a denim jumpsuit or revolutionize a sequined dress. Working as hard for day as it does for evening, a leather beret is the way to make a maverick statement this fall.
