When the top brands showcased their winter collections at the NYC Fashion Week it was clear to see that they were very into burgundy, loved a spot of velvet, brought the jumpsuit silhouette in abundance and the wide leg trousers are certainly back in fashion.
Add all of those things together and you will see that the winter collections for 2017 are going to be extremely feminine and romantic. Here’s what you need to know for 2017:
A huge array of burgundy (and it’s close cousin, maroon) was on show when the catwalk was graced with this year’s collections – Tadashi Soji, Bibhu Mohapatra and Public School, were the designers that really pushed burgundy this year.
It seemed that everyone had fallen in love with velvet this year. Check out Christian Siriano’s winter collection if you’re looking for some of the best designs out there – his floor length gown that hugged the body was truly amazing and then his cocktail dress that bares the shoulders is a must for every party.
The Wide-Leg Look
It is true that the wide-leg trouser certainly isn’t something new for a winter collection, but in 2017 it appears that the trend has gained a lot more popularity. Marc Jacobs collection this year is loving the wide leg look, his models were wearing a collection with a hip-hop influence. They wore dresses that would end mid-thigh or scraping the floor, then there was my favourite ultra-roomy tracksuit pant style trouser.
The jumpsuit silhouette is something that we’re going to be seeing a lot of this year. The models kept coming down the catwalk in the one piece. This year it seems that the designers have upped their game style-wise. Jumpsuits have become so popular that now you will even find them in Ralph Lauren’s winter collection. Head to the Madison Ave. flagship store and pick up a gorgeous stretchy back zip jumpsuit.
Khan is one of a number of designers that really went deep into the embroidery department this winter collection. The designers have really embellished their collections with jewels and studs.
No matter what style you prefer, you can be assured that there are plenty of pieces out there this winter collection that you’ll fall in love with. Remember, ladies, take some chances, be confident and show off this winter!
