Top Fashions for Winter 2017-2018 in Europe

I must say I love what I have seen for Winter 2017-18 on the catwalks of Europe. There are two prominent themes, which I am completely crazy about. I am going to call them ‘dominant and pronounced’ and ‘soft and subtle.’ The latest fashions are SO me, and I cannot wait to get my hands on them.

Top Fashions for Winter 2017-2018 in Europe

Powerful and pronounced

Tailoring has returned with some serious eighties vibes. I see suits with pronounced shoulders (yes – shoulder pads are back ladies) and double breasted cuts. Don’t be fooled; we haven’t gone back to the days of boxy suits and no figure; the lines are much slimmer and nip us in at the waist.

pronounced shouldersSpeaking of ‘the waist’; cinching belts were appearing left right and center on the runways. Which suits me down to the ground. I love an outfit that shows off and accentuates the waist, and I felt this was lacking recently. This is power dressing with a feminine flair, and I can’t wait to see more of this in stores.

Silver is featuring heavily in the Winter 2017-18 line-up, so prepare to be dazzled. Sequins have come back with a vengeance, and chainmail has made a serious reappearance. Gone are the lazy nights in, in front of the TV – you will be organizing events so you can showcase your new crystal-mesh metallic dress to your girlfriends. I love that glamorous evening outfits are taking the place of the lazier fashions of Winter 2016-17.

Soft and subtle

Soft leather has been under the spotlight, and it hasn’t disappointed. Soft leather suits offer a pretty zany alternative to the more classic tailoring I have been seeing. I don’t know if I have the gumption to leave the house dressed in leather, but hats off to anyone that does. Despite a leather suit being pretty ‘out there’ regarding normal fashion, the look is luxurious and surprisingly subtle.

Soft leather suitsFeathers have floated onto the catwalks. While it’s nice to finally see a bit of texture back on the runway, feathers may not be practical for everyday wear. Picking up the kids from playgroup in ostrich may get you a few looks and won’t work well with sticky little hands. A good alternative for feather is the fluted dress. The fluted dress has the floaty texture of feather but is practical enough to go about life in. The fluted skirt is flexible and flattering and isn’t leaving us after it appeared in Winter 2015-16.

1940’s dusky blue is making a forceful yet muted return on the catwalks of Europe. This moody blue is one of my all-time favorite colors and it gray hue makes it flattering for most skin tones. There was a high WW2 fashion vibe, what with the muted blues and grays and the higher waist-lines. I am so up for this smarter and more feminine look; I can hardly contain myself.

Some of my top pieces were the coats featured in the Winter 2017-18 collections. It’s time to re-work your grandmothers’ old eiderdown because quilted jackets are in. Padding popped up, and it’s here to stay. I love the fact that these blanket style coats are seriously cute and super snug as well. Winter is all about feeling cozy and comfortable; these beautiful coats encompass that.

I am so psyched about the new collections and cannot wait to get my hands on the latest fashions. I am ready to rid my wardrobe of anything Winter 2016-17 and embrace everything Winter 2017-18 has to offer.

Tips and tricks to choose the best earrings

  • Teardrop earringsTeardrops surely look awesome. These earrings are usually made from gemstones. They dangle below your earlobe. Similarly, dangling earrings also dangle just like the teardrops. Now when you are wearing a top that does not have straps then the dangling earrings are the right pick.  Secondly dangling earrings and teardrops look great with oval faces.
  • Studs earringsStuds or small hoops are yet another famous pick. These earrings work perfectly well when you are opting in for a conservative outfit. Hoop earrings would look really nice on you especially if you have a square shaped face.

Essential aspects to remember when buying earrings

The color of your earrings is also a vital aspect. If you opt for a color that tends to clash with your outfit then the attention of people would be drawn towards the earrings rather than the dress. It is therefore, important that the color of your earrings should blend in with your outfit.

If your attire has multiple colors then choose the earrings in one of the subtle colors that are present in your outfit. When you want to add texture to your outfit you can make a choice amongst different materials when choosing earrings. For example, when you want a casual look, plastic or wood earrings would be a perfect choice. When you want to give a dressy look, earrings with rhinestones or gemstones would be the apt selection.
