6 Trends Women can take away from Men’s Fashion Week16 January 2019
The 2019 fashion calendar is underway and spring/summer prêt-à-porter outfit gold is everywhere. Even if it is the men’s fashion weeks that get to go first - London closed the 7th Jan and Paris Fashion Week ‘Homme’ commenced on the 15th - that’s not to say that women can’t slay the fashion takeaways.
It’s not just boyfriend jeans, untucked shirts and beards - what we’ve seen on the street from male and female spectators is about to filter into your spring/summer wardrobe.
Focus Shoe: platform sneakers.
How to wear it: anywear.
These work really well with relaxed fitting trousers. Practical, cool and will withstand cold weather.
Focus Colour: beige.
How to wear it: accented or from head to toe.
A rich neutral that’s simply a charm to play with. Think a full suit, inc. very relaxed fitting trousers, underneath a trench - go for drama, paint your nails - beige is beautiful.
Focus Fabric: tartan.
How to wear it: eclectically coloured and with underwear (preferably).
Fitting for cooler weather; tartan has returned to us in the form of blazers, full-length coats, shirts and mid-line skirts, aka kilts. Go for forest green, warm blue or for mustard yellow varieties and you’ve nailed a defining look of the spring/summer fashion season.
Focus Era: the Eighties.
How to wear it: spandex and neon pink.
Think cycling shorts and full blown one pieces in eclectic colours and prints. Pair under a silver foil blazer and wear it to something other than a Jane Fonda aerobics class.
Focus Silhouette: billowing and boxy.
How to wear it: puffer jackets and double tailoring.
Beat the boys and swivel heads in larger than life puffer coats; while boxy suits and oversized tailoring is back. Double up a two piece suit underneath a long tailored jacket and you’ve borne a real sartorial achievement.
Focus Accessories: bucket hats and bumbags.
How to wear: brightly and weather dependent.
Sling your bum bag around your chest and whip out your bucket hat in dry to moderately gusty weather. Orange, snake print and tie-dye options will instantly take your look high-end.
