7 Winter Fashion Trends to Keep On Your Radar

7 Winter Fashion Trends to Keep On Your Radar

It seems like only yesterday when the fashion world was having a field day with fall’s unapologetic florals, giant bags, and pointed shoes. But with winter now in full swing, we’re welcoming a new set of “It” clothes, some refreshed styles, and seasonal colors.

Whether you’re looking to jump on the bandwagon or simply need new outfit ideas, here are some winter fashion trends to keep on your radar.

Fair Isle

Named after the tiny island in northern Scotland where it originated from, fair isle is a knitting technique used to create patterns with various colors. Despite its humble beginnings, fashion experts Creators Syndicate have labeled it as the pattern of the year. While typically found on sweaters, it can also be seen on turtlenecks, cardigans, and knit dresses.

Capes

Last winter, it was all about futuristic fashion and shiny fabrics, as seen in February’s New York Stock Exchange 2018 collection. This year, brands are still focusing on luxe and dramatics but with a twist. No longer reserved for comic books, capes have found their way to high-fashion runways and store racks. They’re actually easier to style than you think, like this cream cape from Goodnight Macaroon paired with skinny jeans and heels.

Leather Trench Coats

Trench coats have always been a winter favorite, but we’re now seeing them take center stage as a statement piece, instead of ordinary outerwear. Take your cue from Amal Clooney who was spotted donning a trench coat, in full leather. Even if it came in a seemingly neutral brown, she proved that trench coats can very much elevate your entire outfit.

Structured Pants

Despite how tempting it is to live in your cozy pajamas in this cold weather, a sleek pair of pants will add something a little extra to your wardrobe. With all the bulky coats and slouchy sweaters you’ll be wearing, you’ll need to balance it out when it comes to your bottoms. These straight-leg pants from Woman Within come in a sophisticated yet casual silhouette that will look great with a loose top or outerwear. Bonus: they come in soft cotton to mimic the comfort of sweatpants, so no need to worry about feeling stiff.

Tonal Dressing

If you’re not too keen on mixing and matching, then you can simply keep it streamlined with tonal colors. Just because it’s tonal, doesn’t mean you have to stick to monotone blacks and browns. You can totally pull off an all-pastel outfit if you want. The trick is to keep everything in the same color family, so you should try combining different shades of purple, green, red, or any other hue that’s popular this time of year.

Rubber Sole Boots

With all that snow lining the sidewalks, heels are perhaps the most uncomfortable footwear choices you can make. Instead, it’s time to bust out the rubber sole boots, as they’re incredibly practical. Fashion writer Andrea Hannah explains that rubber soles are great at keeping water out, so feel free to dive into the snow as you please.

Fur Bags

No other piece screams “holiday fashion” than fur garments. And this year, it’s all about fur bags. These statement pieces are incredibly chic and can instantly upgrade your look. If you don’t want to go for full fur, you can always go for accessories lined with shearling, with this purse from Chanel as a classic example.

And there you have it! Whether you’re the type to play with textures or keep it simple, this year’s winter trends will definitely have something for you. That way, you’ll be strutting into those holiday parties in style.

Yohji Yamamoto’s collection is to a long time friend, Azzedine Alaïa, he passed on in November 2017. Alaïa was an independent couture designer, one of the top designers of the 20th and 21st century.  The collection brings both designers together with the strong presence of black (a signature color for both designers). The styling brings a fine the line of life and death.  The clothing presents a definition of strong powerful lines with the abstract use of the cuts, exceptional tailoring, and fabrics. The end results you can question if this Paris collection brought Yamamoto a great sense of his lifelong friend’s presence and love even after death.

The coats for the collection come from the firefighter coats they wear when fighting a fire. They are longer to cover more during the long cold winter days. The accessories include stocking ski caps that are hand-woven cover the head, ears, and some of the face. Gloves are a nice addition. They cover mid-forearm for continued protection from the winter winds. The runway, covered with popcorn, adds to the sense of a fluffy winter wonderland.

The womenswear runway collection brings a strong futuristic feel to the 19th-century clothing. Taking the older cuts and fabrics bringing them to the modern world. A favorite women’s piece is one where the older collar cut and the fabric made into a sexy pantsuit.
