Best Fall Fashion Wardrobe Trends Appropriate for the Workplace
Stacked Kitten Heel, Lady Loafers – Chic Black Boots – Flounce Hem Skirts – Grey Suits – Turtle Necks – High-Wasted Pant Flare Leg Pants – The Skinny Scarf – The Turtleneck Dickie – Long-Lined Blazers – Nouveau Victorian Silhouettes with a Modern Flair#1. Combo 1—Lady Loafers + High-Waist Pants + Turtlenecks Aren’t they the perfect symbol for feminizing someone like you, who has been diving in the ocean of masculinity for too long? I’m talking about those lovely lady loafers. You saw them peeking from various runways —walking from Stella McCartney to Miu Miu, from Chanel to Bottega Veneta; ditch that awkward pump and stomping in your new secret weapon, while bottomed down with the high waist pants from either that of Jason Wu, Zimmermann of Acne Studios, and tucked in a simple and slick turtle-neck body-con cashmere for tackling the sheer winter, you’re moving from eyes-avoiding to eyes-attracting. #2. Flare Leg Pants + The Turtleneck Dickie When it comes to differentiating yourself from a professional businessman — emphasizing your female workforce power that’s just as strong as men’s while spelling out your power from the elegance, that’s when the alternation of the shapes are coming in and playing huge roles. Instead of straight legs, you want your pants to have some proper, almost undetectable “curves”, and flare leg pants do just that; topped with the turtleneck dickies such as that from Tome or Emilio Pucci, you’re keeping yourself both elegant and powerful. Sometimes, what’s around your neck speaks louder than your voice. #3. Chic Black Booties + Grey Suit It’s all about 50 shades of grey these days. Before you step into the office, work out the math and see how many shades of grey that you’ve got on yourself? If the number is between 0 and 3, then you’re good. Is black suit still in? You can’t push a classic out of the stage, but what you need is something new, something grey and something more exciting than just plain black. Surely you’ve seen them on Giorgio Armani, Vivienne Westwood and Max Mara, stretching out some shades in those grey suits for this fall and winter, with the equally magic black boots, now you’re talking about business. #4. Flounce Hem Skirts+ Long-Lined Blazers + Skinny Scarves Sometimes the solution lies in what seems to be paradox and impossible. When it comes to the business chic and sleek elegance only the businesswomen can enjoy, we have to talk about the flounce-hemmed midi skirts with long-lined blazers. Strange enough? Bizarre enough? You will love the look when you see what they will do to your professional chic once they meet each other on your body head to head. As for the tie? Who needs a tie when she could have something much better—the ultimate utilitarianism piece which is called skinny scarf? The piece that defines fall and winter, separate you from the ordinary office crowd, just grab one from Marc by Marc Jacobs or Chloe, now you can finally confidently keep the smile on your face while talking to your business partners in the conference room.
Fashion Color Report Fall 2015Colors: Dried Herb-Desert Sage-Stormy Weather-Oak Buff-Marsala-Biscay Bay-Reflecting Pond-Cadmium Orange-Cashmere Rose-Amethyst Orchid Lee Eiseman talks Fall 2015 “Juxtaposition of color from opposite sides of the spectrum emphasizes poise and confidence on the runway. The Fall 2015 palette is rooted in multi-faceted, androgynous colors that can be worn to portray effortless sophistication across men’s and women’s fashion; it is the first time we are seeing a truly unisex color palette. This season displays an umbrella of accord that weaves earthy neutrals with a range of bold color statements and patterns to reflect a landscape of hope, fun, fantasy and all things natural. The colors are evocative of a love for nature and a timeless appreciation for warmth and security, which are conveyed through naturally inspired colors that remind us of things that are real and protective. This Fall, designers’ pay homage to progressive moments in American history – from the seductive ‘20s to the bohemian hippie and modernists of the ‘60s and ‘70s – while stringing together an affection for colors and styling that are innately easy to wear by both men and women.” (Pantone.com, 2015) Leatrice EisemanExecutive Director, Pantone Color Institute® Sources:
