Casual Dresses Fall-Winter 2015-2016
In the opinion of many fashionistas, the most successful everyday clothing is the dress. We can not agree with this view and we will not, because the casual dresses is not only a simple and universal garment, but also a reliable aid for women, because wearing a correctly chosen dress, a woman can reveal all aspects of her silhouette and beyond. That is why it is important to find out what news and fashion trends are characteristic for the new casual fashion for fall-winter 2015-2016.
We’ll start this review with fabrics used most often by the most famous designers. The first thing we notice is that most designers have increasingly begun to use in a image several fabrics simultaneously. The proofs are fashion shows presented by Alexander Wang, Nicole Miller and many other brands. From now on, in fashion are “combined” looks, created based on fabrics with different textures and colors. The most famous combinations have become knitting and lace, knitting and atlas, velvet and atlas.
In Chalayan, Lacoste collections were observed dresses made of pleated fabrics and moreover, the pleats can be absolutely in any area of the dress.
Nina Ricci, Blumarine, Alberta Ferretti did not consider seasonality again offering a range of casual dresses, made of translucent chiffon, mesh and organza. Looking at these masterpieces a question as to their practicability arises, because such fabrics will not keep you warm in winter. Whatever, such casual looks are very interesting and attractive.
A real breakthrough of the season became Fendi fashion show, which besides traditional winter fabrics, the brand began using puffy fabrics to create casual lines due to which dresses started to resemble bulky and warm jackets and coats. Our attention also deserves dresses made of leather, presented by designer exclusively in achromatic colors. No less warm and interesting looked bustier dress executed entirely in fur in shades of beige and neutral, matched with monochromatic fur boots and a fur bag.
Vivienne Tam, Vionnet also opted for leather. In addition, in their collections can be also found several designers made of quilted fabrics. Remarkable is that these practical dresses were presented mainly as sundresses and other sleeveless options.
Sleeveless casual dresses designs autumn-winter 2015-2016 can be found in the collection of Roksanda just as in this case, the brand preferred warm and thick fabrics such as tweed, brocade and tapestry.
Studying the length of fashion casual dresses, we can once again convince that designers are very generous in the choice of possible options. For example, Saint Laurent, Burberry Prorsum and Versace have remained loyal to the mini length, while Zimmermann, Adam Selman, Nicole Miller opted for long versions, starting with the classic midi and ending with the maxi length.
The fashion designs were also presented in the most varied options. The first thing we must stress is the multitude of dresses with fluffy skirts. Such examples can be seen in Saint Laurent collection that launched a whole line of bright and bold mini dresses in polka dots and in baby doll style.
In the same direction have also worked Red Valentino, but for its “girly” gowns, the brand has chosen a warmer range of colors and less flared skirts.
Christian Dior has included in its collection flaring free silhouette dresses that were more common in short versions. Lanvin opted for the loose cut and skin-tight dresses.
Valentino, Adam Selman, Nanette Lepore and Kenzo have offered fashionistas shirt-dresses that are distinguished by the presence of the standing collar. Such items can have different lengths – from mini to maxi.
In Alberta Ferretti collection we could see sundresses, which the brand recommends us wearing over white blouses.
Cutouts, slits, perforations
Altuzarra, Zimmermann, Nanette Lepore presentations showed once again that cuts and perforations will be on top of Olympus fashion. A great popularity has perforations that may be present on almost any type of fabric and in absolutely any place. And if deep neckline or skirt’s high slit is indispensable for certain styles, the perforation can be used not only in casual outfits, but also in the business.
Embroidery and prints
We must necessarily also tell you about all methods of fabrics decoration. A special attention is given to prints and embroidery, as they make the garment become special and be in the top of fashion trends of the season. If we talk about prints, then on the first place are again the geometric lines, presented by brands in various interpretations (Miu Miu, Valentino).
A fairly high popularity have also the summer prints – images of plants, leaflets, flowers, flower buds, etc. that embellished fashionable dresses by Burberry, Nicole Miller, Dolce & Gabbana and other brands. Dolce & Gabbana has launched a complete range of wonderful casual dresses for the autumn-winter season 2015-2016, with prints and applications of red roses which the fashion house recommend to be worn both by mothers and daughters. Besides floral print, in the brand collection have appeared articles with images of drawings made by children.
Louis Vuitton, Emilio Pucci, Saint Laurent, Miu Miu still remained loyal to animal prints, as demonstrated by their presence on casual dresses, whose surface reminded the skin and fur of “overseas reptiles and animals.”
Besides the above mentioned, in the Emilio Pucci collection appeared original dresses, decorated with images of the night sky, of constellations and zodiacal signs.
The variety of elements of modern decor is also very impressive, designers using for this purpose detachable pockets, material knots, bows (Adam Selman) elements in layers, ruffles, floral applications (Givenchy), stones and applications with different textures (DKNY), genuine leather straps (Lanvin), brooches in bold and bright colors, metallic embroidery, trim, and even birds sitting on shoulders (Manish Arora).
The colors were also quite varied. We can see the classical achromatic and more intense colors (red, blue, orange, raspberry). In addition, designers favorite colors have proved to be blurred pastel range, the basis of which were shades like purple, pink, beige and olive. All variety of colors can be seen in Zero+Maria Cornejo, Nanette Lepore, Victoria Beckham, Roksanda, Elie Saab collections.
