Red is The New Black
Designers fell for scarlet this fall, adding a flutter of romance with luxe fabrics, peekaboo panels and plenty of flounce.
Seen at: Max Mara, Fendi, Giambattista Valli and more.
Stash your LBD until spring. Led by the power polka dots at Marques’ Almeida and Zimmermann, monochrome is the new night-out staple.
Seen at: Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Chloé and more.
Day or night, a hint of sparkle goes a long way.
Style Tip: Glittery boots are surprisingly timeless. Wear them with ankle-grazing denim for a playful look or a sleek black suit for the wow factor.
Seen at: Calvin Klein, Marco de Vincenzo, Chanel and more.
We see an excess of metallics in your future. The beauty of this silvery statement? It can be dressed down (Paco Rabanne’s disco tee) or dialed waaay up.
Seen at: Chanel, Alexander McQueen, Saint Laurent and more.
Denim is many things, but this season, “basic” isn’t one of them. Christian DIor and Stella McCartney offered subversive takes on the Canadian tuxedo, while Y/Project’s pairs were manipulated almost beyond recognition.
Seen at: Marc Jacobs, Off White C/o Virgil Abloh, Burberry Runway and more.
We can credit Gucci with ushering in an era of “more is more.” Suddenly, no outfit is complete without a clash of patterns and a pile of accessories.
Seen at: Emilio Pucci, Miu Miu, Marni and more.
Bust a Groove
The retro trend isn’t for minimalists. Stompin’ platforms and oversized tinted shades are familiar yet thrilling.
Style Tip: The key to this trend? A just-right hue of ochre or teal – boots and bags should look Instagram filtered.
Seen at: Marc Jacobs, Mulberry, Miu Miu and more.
Don’t mistake these suits’ looser silhouettes for fragility. Thanks to wide shoulders and dynamic hues, they exude power from every stitch. Pair with a turtleneck for daytime and nothing at all once the sun goes down.
Seen at: Jacquemus, Jil Sander, Mugler and more.
