Fashionable Skirts Fall-Winter 2016-2017
The skirt is not just one type of female garment. This is a true attribute of femininity, naivety, beauty and gracefulness. A woman wearing a beautiful and modern skirt will be easily observed. Let’s see what are the fall-winter 2016-2017 season skirts trends.
High waisted skirts
It is known that the prototype of modern high waisted skirts appeared yet in ancient times. They began to gain a great popularity in the early 19th century, during the appearance of the empire style. Meanwhile, such skirts designs haven’t left the ladies lockers, which can be explained by several factors. First, such skirts make the waistline look thinner. Secondly, these discretely shape the thighs line, giving the silhouette a feminine, elegant and original look. In the new cold fall-winter 2016-2017 season, high-waisted skirts can be found in lines APC , BCBG Max Azria, Mother of Pearl, Altuzarra, Marco de Vincenzo, Karen Walker, Christian Dior, Brock Collection. In addition, it is impossible not to mention that such high cut can be also present at skirts of absolutely any style and design. These can be flared skirts, pencil skirts, skirts with slits, midi skirts in new look style and many more.
Asymmetric skirts Fall Winter 2016-2017
Although this design does not have the same high popularity as in previous fashion season, it is often found in the collections of famous brands. An example may serve lines from Anthony Vaccarello, Mulberry, Saint Laurent, Moschino, Ralph Lauren, Mugler, Baja East, Isabel Marant. Here we can find mini skirts with asymmetrical hems, luxurious mullet skirts, leather skirts with asymmetric leather folds, short skirts and designs with vertical zippers.
Classic and simple pencil skirts came among the most fashionable skirts of the season. Well how else if such design has been recognized for some time as the most practical and absolutely universal and ideal for all fashionistas. Besides the amazing ability to arrange perfectly on any body type, pencil skirts are characterized by the presence of a rare and necessary feature – they are suitable for various events and holidays. These designs are ideal for business and for the evening fashion, both for casual fashion and for festive life. Collections from Lela Rose, Mary Katrantzou, Les Copains, Milly, Blumarine, Brock Collection, Escada, DKNY are a clear evidence of that.
The presence of folds on clothes is another designer’s trick that will not leave the pedestal of fashion for over 50 years. It is no secret that elegant folds, that delicately frame the feminine hips, can hide some imperfections of the body, which makes them present in the wardrobe of different ladies. Moreover, folds look very feminine and romantic and can refresh even the most severe outfits. Currently, the folds are used in the various fashion trends. Skirts can also be performed in various colors and their lengths can be absolutely different. If we look carefully at pleated skirts from the new designer collections, we can see that they mostly do not have decorative elements and details such as pockets, rhinestones, gems, strident cleft, etc. In this case, such a way of decorating can be absolutely useless because folds already represent a décor element (Les Copains, Balenciaga, Carolina Herrera, Felder Felder, Salvatore Ferragamo, Blumarine).
Sexy still clefts remained current on catwalks, which sometimes bare much of the female thighs. Certainly the most daring slits are only for ladies with beautiful and supple legs and even if Mother Nature did not endow you with such feature, by using clefts of different depths you can try the most varied outfits (David Koma, Felder Felder, Bibhu Mohapatra, A Detacher, Nina Ricci).
Such skirts designs give the image luxury, a great mystery and individuality. Wrap skirts can be narrow and wide, long and short, colored and black and white, severe and festive and made of various fabrics and textures. In the new cold season, Maison Margiela, Pamella Roland, David Koma, Marni, Vetements, Alberta Ferretti etc. opted namely for this skirt design.
Although in the cold season the weather conditions impose ladies to cover their body to the maximum, designers on the contrary, request to bare the body and this can be achieved using short skirts. The volume and assortment of short skirts for fall-winter 2016-2017 proved to be a really great one, thing not typical for the autumn-winter season. For example, Saint Laurent offers short tutu skirts; Carven – trapeze skirts; Anthony Vaccarello skirts with decorated pockets, leather inserts, etc.; Alexander Wang, Felder Felder and Fausto Puglisi included in their shows skirts with prints and designs with embroidery.
Flared and trapeze
On par with sober pencil skirts, a great popularity will also have lighter designs, i.e. trapeze skirts and bell-bottomed skirts. These garments can be matched with shirts, blouses, sweaters and turtlenecks. And if previously loose skirts could be found only in evening and romantic outfits, then from now on, they can be found even in rock and grunge outfits (Alice Olivia, Carolina Herrera, Christian Dior, Chanel, Fausto Puglisi, Delpozo, Marchesa , Moschino, Les Copains, Gucci).
If we talk about the diversity of fabrics for autumn winter 2016-2017, then again from this chapter designers strove to consider the tastes and preferences of fans. First we have to talk about transparent skirts, which are not characteristic of the cold period. However, designers have not given up their favorite fabrics. Transparent and extremely loose skirts were presented by Christian Dior, Derek Lam, Les Copains, Balmain.
Denim, which does give top the top positions several consecutive decades, has proved again to be designer’s favorite fabric. Denim skirts can be seen in lines Manish Arora, Moschino, etc.
The soft and warm suede and velvet are more suitable for the autumn and winter weather conditions and in the new cold season, these fabrics will be extremely popular and will meet virtually everywhere (Mother of Pearl, Dries van Noten, Carven, Balenciaga, Lacoste).
Speaking about the current fabrics, it is impossible not to mention the leather especially because designers practically never forget about it. In 2016-2017 autumn-winter seasons, it not only was not forgotten, but it was strongly suggested by the most famous brands. Whether you like leather or not, if you want to be fashionable, then this fabric should not be missing from your wardrobe. Fashionable leather skirts can be found at Chanel, Chloe, BCBG Max Azria, Max Mara, Anthony Vaccarello, Moschino, Karen Walker, Oscar de la Renta, Valentino.
All ladies who care not only about fashion but also about their health know very well that the best choice for winter is a tweed skirt or warm and thick knitted skirt. These fabrics are ideal for the cold season. From the specified materials can be executed not only practical and warm clothing, but also stylish. For cotton opted also Christian Dior, Cretures of the Wind, Anna Sui, Chanel, Balenciaga, Karen Walker.
Balmain, Fendi, Alberta Ferretti and Lela Rose confirmed once again that fur can be used not only to create outer clothing items. The fur can be ideal for creating incredibly beautiful skirts designs.
As regards the methods of skirts decoration, nothing has changed fashionistas having at their disposal various decorative elements. Gems, rhinestones, fringe, embroidery, ruffles, sparkles, cotton inserts, absolutely different colors and textures (David Koma, Creatures of the Wind, Kenzo, Alberta Ferretti, Jill Stuart, Mugler, Gucci, Rochas, Dolce and Gabbana, Oscar de la Renta, Lanvin, Fausto Puglisi, Christian Siriano, Fausto Puglisi, Mary Katrantzou).
The color range has been proven to be varied, too. For example, Boss, Brock Collection have shown interest in shades of olive and mustard; Chanel – lilac and pink; Isabel Marant, Oscar de la Renta, Marni, Creatures of the Wind – bright shades of red and fuchsia.
Emilio Pucci proposes to use several fashionable colors simultaneously – yellow, orange, blue and ivory.
Alexis Mabille, Moschino, Carven, Balenciaga opted for blue and its shades.
Milly, Chanel miss summer colors and emotions, including in their collections yellow and orange skirts.
Blumarine, Bibhu Mohapatra, Alexander Wang, Mother of Pearl used not only colors, but also fashionable prints. In their view, skirts must necessarily be embellished with thick colored stripes, pictures of flowers and leaves.
