3 Styling Tips We Learned From the 2017 Pre-Fall Collections
Pre-fall—the collection that hits racks between July and September—is generally the most wearable. These clothes have to be versatile (to accommodate the varying temps of those months), layer-able, and easy. We’ve also come to expect pre-fall to hand over accessible styling tricks we can apply to our IRL wardrobes. Here, see how Miu Miu, Versace, and more of fashion’s heavyweights are influencing the way we dress.
1. Over accessorize your hat. It’s too cold to even think of leaving the house with your head uncovered. If you want your beanie or your basque to be the highlight of your look, embellish it with patches, pins and brooches: you can go for a single large one, or for multiple ones: either way, you will look super cool.
2.Wear your little summer dresses. Yes, you heard me: rigorously dividing your closet into winter and summer clothes is so old school, anyway. Just go ahead and mix your items without taking season into account. Sure, you have to be mindful of the cold, but there’s a very home remedy for that, and it’s called “layers”. Turtlenecks work very well with any light dress, and a maxi coat and a woolen scarf will take care of the rest. Try it out!
3. Nevermind hems: ankle-length was the perfect length until last winter, but now, the time seems to have come for extralong pants. It might not be that convenient, especially if it rains, and you will basically have to wash your jeans every single time you wear them. Your mum will probably ask you if you need a hand bringing those pants to the tailor’s, if you are too busy… But fashionistas will know what you’re doing: basically, you will be übercool.
