3 Fall-Winter 2017 micro trends that steal the spotlight
Micro but major! These items seen on numerous runways will sure gain lots of territory in the retail spaces in the following months. Have you worn them before? Maybe. Nevertheless, they are timeless yet contemporary. All of them are demure though, nothing flashy or impossible to wear. I am talking about maxi coats, turtlenecks and white shoes. I’ve selected a few runway looks from Balenciaga, Prada, Dries van Noten, Delpozo and more so you can get comfortable with the new perspective. Let’s see!
The maxi coat
Your mom’ would be so proud of you wearing such a piece! Not because it’s stylish, but because it will keep you warm from neck to ankle. I must admit I love this belted one from The Row: wasp waist, wide lapels, flap pockets. The laboratory coat from Joseph looks like a post-WWII uniform. Never know what she may sport underneath!
The pastel lilac maxi coat by Valentino is the most feminine choice from the fall-winter 2017 micro trends list, while the loose design from Acne Studios is for the layering pros.
You may say that a turtleneck sweater is something that everybody wears during winter but this time they were everywhere! Prada even opened the show with six consecutive outfits having a turtleneck knitted accessory. At Delpozo the sweaters finished with a sleek hood that transported us into a sci-fi sphere. As well as Balenciaga where the simple turtlenecks complimented the “car-mat” pencil skirts.
The white shoes
Though hard to imagine these getting dirty on the streets, fashion is fashion. Make a statement and choose a pair like that one from Kenzo. The result will be unbelievably cool if you style it with athleisure items.
Play safe wearing ankle boots like the ones from Dries van Noten. Mix the white shoes with matching jeans or vintage blue denim. A pajama robe on top will amp up the ensemble! What about the short booties from Joseph? I see these worn with mesh neon socks and a relaxed overall.
