Hey, Stylish!

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:

Hey Stylish!

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:
