Women’s Blazers Fall-Winter 2016-2017
The blazer is an exclusively male garment. However, active ladies, who understood its practicality and brevity, rushed to use it in their wardrobe as well. The actual diversity of patterns and styles allows each woman to choose the most suitable option because designers have taken care of everything and have provided the most beautiful blazers. So let’s see what designs will be fashionable in the 2016-2017 autumn-winter season.
The classic style is eternal. This statement can not be challenged because only under this style are created all the other fashion trends. Not accidentally feminine blazers with traditional cut are so requested. In such outfit you can also appear without care in front of the boss, colleagues or employees, you can drive a business meeting at the same time without losing the femininity and elegance. Matching a classic blazer with more “simple” clothing (eg.: a skirt), you can get a very stylish casual look. A blazer matched with jeans will look perfect if you plan to go shopping in fashion boutiques. And such combinations may be very many (Maryam Nassir Zadeh, Kimora Lee Simmons, Paul and Joe, Aquilano, Vera Wang, Dries Van Noten, Calvin Klein, Barbara Casasola, Gareth Pugh, Jil Sander, Daks).
Minimum clasps and buttons
In the new cold season, blazers with few buttons, zippers and other types of clasps will be in great demand. Some designs are closed through hidden clasps, some with decorative buttons and pins, and some models using all kinds of belts. Examples of such blazers were presented by Anthony Vaccarello, Paco Rabanne, Boss, Cedric Charlier, John Galliano, Vanessa Bruno Le Kilt, Antonio Marras, Paul Smith.
Asymmetric lines continue to walk with confidence on the fashion’s red carpet. Any dis-proportionality in cut and you are immediately a stylish woman. In the new fashion season blazers with asymmetrical cut recommend us to wear Ports 1961 Zac Posen, Proenza Schouler, Salvatore Ferragamo and other fashion gurus.
While some designers urge us to wear waist coats in classic style, others have decided to experiment a bit with the bottom of the article. For this purpose, the bottom of blazers was visibly expanded using additional gussets or with the help of other cut elements such as peplum. However, blazers are narrowed in the waist area giving the body an original look. The idea of wearing flared blazers will please ladies with a prominent belly. And we are not just talking about beautiful voluptuous shapes, but also pregnant fashionistas. Examples of flared blazers can be found in collections of Boss, Blumarine, Paul Smith, Erdem, Aquilano, Ellery.
This is another fashion trick that appears on the fashion catwalks and disappears for a short time and that requires a deliberate increasing of the size of the fashion item. Ladies are asked to wear clothes, the size of which will be 1-2 sizes larger than the one they usually wear. These blazers can stand freely on the body or can be worn over several layers of other clothing. Often, the sleeves are very long, which is not surprising because with increasing size increases, respectively the length of the article. Even if this trend seems initially very strange, from year to year, more and more fashionistas are opting for oversize style. Very stylish look oversize items on skinny ladies, because in this case it creates a very impressive contrast: bulky clothing on a frail body. Examples of oversize blazers were presented by Balenciaga, Lanvin, Sibling, DKNY, Vetements, 1205, Nina Ricci, Emilio Pucci.
Blazers made of shaggy fabrics
Ladies, who love comfort and practicality, must know that in the new cold season fabrics such as velvet, suede, fleece, Jacquard, will be among favorites- thus, all fabrics ranging from shaggy fabrics. Blazers made of these fabrics can look very stylish and the owner can be protected from the outside cold. The range of colors can be very varied, as demonstrated by designers and brands such as Vetements, Roberto Cavalli, Leonard, Antonio Berardi, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Ralph Lauren, Bottega Veneta, Dondup, Osman, Luisa Beccaria.
Another element in fashion next season cold are huge pockets. These may be pockets in the same color as the blazer or in different shades. One thing is important, namely that they must be large and visible (Miu Miu, Max Mara, Versace, Paul and Joe, Escada, 3.1 Phillip Lim, M Missoni, Polo Ralph Lauren).
It’s time to talk about the length of this great clothing. This chapter has not identified a leader. We talked earlier about blazers in classic style, which length reaches up to the thighs and buttocks line. Lanvin, Tommy Hilfiger, Giorgio Armani, Etro, Emporio Armani, Marni, Louis Vuitton, Moschino, Saint Laurent, Miu Miu, Tory Burch presented a whole line of short blazers, that can be of different designs, styles and silhouettes: classic female blazers, tuxedos, short blazers, etc.
John Galliano, Lemaire, Aquilano, Alexander McQueen, H&M, Lanvin, on the contrary, included in their shows long blazers, jackets and tuxedos the length of which can reach even the knees.
Military style Blazers Fall-Winter 2016-2017
Admirers of all that is ancient and of the military theme can rest assured because in the new cold season they are provided a full series of military blazers. If you dream to appear in public wearing such an outfit, then we recommend drawing attention to the collections of Dolce & Gabbana, Temperley London, John Galliano.
As practice shows, the tradition of decorating garments with all sorts of decorative items not only leaves its leading position, but strengthens it further. In 2016-2017 autumn-winter season, designers have implemented unimaginable tricks. For example, blazers from Alexander McQueen and Moschino are strewn with stones, chains and brooches; Erdem, Andrew Gn and Antonio Berardi used lace and embroidery inserts; Ralph Lauren and Giorgio Armani used fringes; Vionnet and Burberry – clasps and decorative buttons; Proenza Schouler and Francesco Scognamiglio – decorative ribbons instead of buttons.
The color range has also proven to be very diverse. For example in lines of AAlto , Roberto Cavalli, Dries Van Noten and Ralph Lauren Polo can be found warm shades of brick, yellow and reddish; Escada, Iceberg, Gucci and Vanesso Bruno opted for wine and raspberry color; Emporio Armani, Altuzarra, TSE, Frame Denim still crave for summer because in their collections green is the predominant color.
Trussardi, Lanvin, Paul Smith, Gucci chose the cold pastel range. Gucci, Sonia Rykiel, Dries Van Noten, Rachel Zoe tells us to wear blazers made of sparkling fabrics.
Besides a range of modern colors, fashion houses presented also fashionable prints. Thus, Blumarine and Anna Sui opted for flowers, Zimmermann, Gareth Pugh – stars and flowers buttons; Bottega Veneta and Roberto Cavalli opted for animal prints that mimic the fur of cheetah and other feline predator animals.
Striped and plaid blazers
A special discussion deserved geometric prints. Why? Because these are found in virtually every collection. Each brand considered a duty to present their vision on plaid and stripes prints. Examples can be seen in lines of Tods, Vivienne Westwood Red Label, Christian Siriano, H&M, Paul and Joe, Courreges, Erdem, Polo Ralph Lauren, Tomas Maier, Ralph Lauren, Luisa Beccaria.
