The exaggeration of the forms and silhouettes is the most important trend this Fall. You can notice a lot of shoulder pads and puffy sleeves at Dior, Balenciaga, and other runways. If you want to wear this trend in life, I would recommend wearing it with a straight bottom rather than fitted one, to make look extra edgy and careless.
The exaggerated forms always look better in neutral colors and black because you can really appreciate the intricate silhouette in a clean color. I already had created some of the dramatic sleeves outfits previously, so you can get some inspiration from there.
I leave you with great examples to take note of:

All we know the stigma that one should not wear white after Labor day, which is a complete false. I truly believe that fashion right now has no rules, gender or boundaries. So please, wear white and all other colors whenever or whatever you want ( maybe just avoid wearing white at someone else’s wedding at least). In today’s look I was not only inspired by my favorite color+ texture technique ( white+metal) but also by the pleated skirt trend that is so hot this season. Wear the pleated skirts with the bulky sweaters or the longline classic coats to enhance the gentle nature of pleats or go crazy with texture as I did in my look. Here are some inspirations for you:
What is your favorite way to wear pleats?

I have always been fascinated by the work of the famous stylist Patricia Field in the Sex and the City. Even though, she viewed Carrie Bradshaw as a fashion risk taker, many of her outfits were so fashion forward and effortlessly chic at the same time. I really enjoy her outfits in Paris, so feminine and avant-garde at the same time. I tried to adapt this aesthetic into my today’s outfit by taking the feminine silhouettes and mixing them with a bold print mixing technique. Check out some great Carrie Bradshaw inspirations:

Florals are so expected to be worn in summer, but there are thousands of ways to wear it unexpectedly. I am a big fan of Alessandro Michele’s politics toward new collections of Gucci house: a dash of vintage vibes, modern cuts and print on print, especially florals on florals or florals on an animal pattern. As you know, I like matching things and for me combining botanical print is the optimal solution for the unconventional way to wear print. I was inspired by a couple of gorgeous examples from the runway:
Sandals- Steve Maden

The story of the kimono has always intrigued Western world and took many forms in the way it is adapted in nowadays wear. We have seen many examples of the new silhouettes and textiles of many variations of the kimonos. I am actually a big fan of the traditional kimonos that are universally flattering. If you want to adapt more wearable look you can mix it with slip dresses (like I did) or with jeans for a more casual, eclectic look. As usual, I leave you with the freshest runway inspirations:

How to wear Dolce and Gabanna without actually wearing it? Here is the formula: all black+ feminine cuts+exaggerated forms and silhouettes. I think the third variable in this equation is the most important. I am a big fan of good drama, so exaggerated detailing can bring some new feelings to simple clothes. Just take my look: a simple black sandals are upgraded with a feather trim, a sweater is detailed with bows and my glasses are embellished with flowers- simple forms spiced with exagerated detailing.
As usual, some of my observations and inspirations. This time from D&G:
Sweater- Mix vintage
Sandals- LittleMistress, similar here
Bag- vintage 1975, similar here
