Winter is in full bloom; the temperature is dropping; nights are getting longer and colder; and the days are shorter. It is that time of the year when you finally start layering your clothes; jackets, cardigans, knitwear sweaters and coats are more of a necessity now than a fashion accessory. However, wearing triple layers of winter clothing and roaming around looking like a big yam is no fun. You should rather take this chance to play around with long ankle boots, oversized statement knitwear, warm funky leggings, and classic women trench coats and look totally like a high street celebrity strolling around the city. How to do that, you ask? Here is your simple guide to street style trends for women for fall/winter 2017-2018.
1- Dress like a Parisian Beauty for Fall/Winter 2017-2018
French girl fashion style is never getting old. Not at least for the next hundred decades. The minimalist Parisian fashion style is timeless and legendry; it would be right up your alley if you believe in sustainable fashion or capsule wardrobe is your thing. If you decide to go with the French girl fashion vibe for winters this season, we suggest you invest in some high quality neutral basic pieces. A turtle neck knitwear, a boat neck cotton shirt and some sustainable flattering denim would be a nice base to build many outfits around. Pair them with structured formal blazers, leather jackets or neutral colored long coats – it will all look perfect together.
2- Take Some Inspiration from Milan Fashion Weeks
Milan fashion weeks for fall/winter 2017-2018 featured some really cool and feminine floral long winter coats with fur accents. Animal prints in general and cheetah print in particular was quite a rage. Also, it looks like that millennial pink color is not ready to go as of yet. You can totally incorporate block heels and long ankle boots in blushing tones with your everyday outfits for fall and winter.
Monochromatic ensembles with an addition of a statement accessory are also quite a trend in the streets of Milan. Your statement accent can either be your pair of shoes, pants, coat or even your structured flamboyant handbag. You just need the right attitude to rock it.
3- Fur is Trending
Since a lot of fall/winter 2017-2018 fashion trends for women are heavily inspired by the edgy 70s, it was only natural for fur to make a comeback. However, being completely honest, fur, always makes its way back in style as soon as the winds get chillier. Clothing brands this year have incorporated fur both as an embellishment for leather jackets or a material to fashion cape shawls and blanker scarves.
4- Plaids & Bold Headgear
Gucci made plaids relevant to the cool kids again this year. You can wear plaids in skirts, jackets, blazers, button-up shirts or even in dresses – the possibilities are unlimited. Also, since winters call for a headgear, how about a French beret in power red or moss green? This combination is going to be the most chic fashion statement of the season.
