Stepping into the fall season, it’s all about trophy coats in bright, bold colours and standout textures. We chose a pair of gray havana print Hickey Freeman glasses, which is a chic alternative to black glasses to dress up outfits with hints of burgundy, blue, and other darker fall shades. The rounded shape of these Hickey Freeman glasses give it a retro look and feel, and because of this, it will also go well with midi skirts, another fall fashion trend.
The Core Outfit
Our team has had our eyes on this show-stopping oversized coat ever since it graced the runway. We love the bright colour and the fact that it’s comfortable and stylish – dressing up a basic jean + blouse outfit, or adding class and edge to an elegant print blouse + midi skirt look like this week’s look. We chose a digital print top from Mary Katrantzou (can’t get enough of anything from her collections!) and a mesh midi skirt from Jacob Birge. We like the sports inspired influence with the mesh material combined with the elegance of the midi skirt length.
Whenever you are putting an outfit together, notice how the lengths of the different component pieces work together. Here, the coat covers half the skirt, so when it’s worn on top of the outfit, you can see almost a peplum hemline from under the coat as you walk – very elegant, ladylike, and chic.
The Hickey Freeman glasses we chose work well with the core outfit, mirroring the print colours from the blouse. The gray colours of the Hickey Freeman glasses also work to balance the bright blue coat.
In terms of the shoe selection, we switched over from high heels to sharp booties. The T-strap details at the front and side openings are chic details – no wonder it’s a masterpiece from none other than Valentino.
We also chose rounded black earrings from Marni with a retro feel, small spiked rings to decorate each finger, and a dalmatian print clutch from Proenza Schouler.
Fall in love with burgundy this season with matte and semi-matte lipsticks in this coveted colour, and match it with your nail polish. Two coats and you can get picture perfect lips!
