Who would have thought the skinny pant would stay in style for so long? I remember when they first came out, how many clients hesitated because they didn’t feel it would be flattering or they thought it would be too trendy for their look. Now everyone and their mom wear skinny jeans and leggings. The change in pant style has finally come! What’s the next big thing? Any other pant you can find at the store: cropped, wide leg, and culotte to name a few.
Let’s translate looks from the runway to real life:
DIANE VON FURSENTBERG PRE-FALL 2016
Bomber jacket + Wide Leg Pants + Snakeskin booties
This color combo is unexpected but works so well. You are going to find a lot of orange in 2016, don’t be alarmed by the bright hue. Did you notice the snakeskin booties? I’ve been collecting all kinds of boots, I have yet to have this in my shoe closet…
ESCADA PRE-FALL 2016
Print ankle pant + Ribbed sequin sweater + Pointy toe flats
Mix the same color palette together on top and bottom, don’t worry about whether or not the print matches. This will give you more ways to wear your printed pieces. Forget the safe rule of wearing one print and a solid.
JOSE NATORI PRE-FALL 2016
Metallic ankle pants + Long lace top + Suede booties
Proportions are being taken to new levels this year. Crop pants can be worn with a longer top, no need to tuck in. What intrigues me most about this outfit is the asymmetrical element to the top, it is just beautiful
LELA ROSE PRE-FALL 2016
Wide leg trousers + Long cinched in top + Silver pointy heels
So elegant, so chic. The trick to this outfit is to make sure the top comes in the waist a little so it doesn’t look like a frumpy look.
ARMANI PRE-FALL 2016
Crop pants+ Tucked in blouse + Printed socks
I won’t lie, the first piece that caught my attention were the printed socks! The styling is right on, it’s professional, yet creative. Sophisticated, yet playful. The tucked in blouse makes it more serious, the printed socks add a creative element, and the mary janes are playful.
