This fall season’s style short list includes layers, weights, patterns, and textures. Bold new silhouettes and experimentation with new materials can be seen on and off the runway.
Fall knits are nothing too chunky or too intricate. My favourite knit for this fall season has a “burlap-esque” texture, fine enough to wear. Bringing that rough texture to an otherwise delicate top layer adds intrigue, especially when paired with a smooth texture such as leather.
Oversized silhouettes are back again this fall. Boyfriend silhouettes, best styled with a skimming, skinny silhouettes on the bottom provide you the best all round balance of the oversized trend.
Multi layered accessories, such as different lengths of pearls and jewels, add a soft finish to an otherwise masculine look of rough textures and boyfriend tailored pieces.
Colours such as Cypress Green, Bright Cobalt, Sangria, Misted Yellow, and Aluminium, as seen on the February 2014 runways, have finally hit stores!
My take on this combination of fall colours, silhouettes, and textures is what I like to call “classically modern.”
