#1: Because wearing faux fur with an all-out like ’80s punk outfit (as seen at Gucci) is going to be the new casual/party outfit. You won’t look like you’re overdressed, and you’d definitely be kinder to animals which gets you brownie points for eco-friendliness.
#2: Because the appeal of wearing pleats, which are easy-to-maintain (hurrah), will be big. Our favourite is the artistic and delicate reiterations at Max Mara. The pleats, which appeared on dresses, pants, blouses, and bags, are a nod to the avant-garde work of Italian artist Piero Manzoni who was known for wrinkled canvas artworks.
#3: Because wide-leg workman-like jeans, like the raw dark denim pair at Fendi, means you can live in them every day and get things done.
#4: Because hot Barbie pink abound, lets you flaunt your feminity unabashedly. Need proof? Just turn to this lovable getup by Coach 1941.
#5: Because you get to relieve Prada’s ’90s chic (arguably some of Mrs Prada best shows came from the decade) all over again. This time around, staples like the mini skirt and crew neck top are rendered with ruffled flourishes and highlighter hues to give keep things updated.
#6: Because you won’t be frowned upon for wearing suits with comfortable shorts for work. Just ask Bottega Veneta.
#7: Because the flattering silhouette and retro-fab style of bell bottoms that Chloe’s Natacha Ramsay-Levi created are what all the cool girls and street style set will be caught in.
#8: Because we’re drawn to the compelling silhouette that Salvatore Ferragamo’s creative director Paul Andrew dreamed up by pairing a halter top with baggy bermudas. So effortless but tasteful.
#9: Because Louis Vuitton has convinced us that a plain old denim jacket won’t do. You need one with exaggerated shoulders that curves beautifully around the edges and come with psychedelic metallic Aztec prints.
#10: Because Dior just gave us a new and fresh proposition to dress up an ordinary shirt dress or maxi. Just add a tie + leather corset.
#11: Because Givenchy shows it’s not just earrings that can look cool mismatched. Its ying-yang pairing for the boots certainly will command attention.
#12: Because we just got the best inspiration for Zen dressing next season, thanks to Jil Sander.
#13: Because Karl Lagerfeld proves that everything with a beret looks so much more fun – even when it’s a beautifully sequinned evening gown at Chanel.
