The Fashion List
What would make your fall closet even better? A whole lot of sparkle. So shine bright, like a diamond.
THE GAME CHANGER:
A metallic dress
Disco fever is taking hold and we couldn’t be happier about it. Dresses scaled with paillettes or glistening in Bacofoil finishes quite literally lit up the fall runways. Cast your go-to black dress aside and try on this good times guaranteed number from edgy Piece instead.
THE POWER PAIRING:
A daytime sweater and an after-dark skirt
Recent seasons have championed a ‘dressing down’ approach, as athleisure and streetwear increased their fashion credentials. So how do cool girls dress up these days? An iridescent midi skirt tempered with a pared-back cashmere turtleneck is the 2017 equivalent of sky-high heels and an LBD. Swap vertiginous shoes for slouchy boots or chic slippers.
To tap into the metallic trend with subtlety, substitute one of your fail-safe pieces for its dazzling alter ego. A pair of jazzed-up tailored pants adds a fashion-forward edge to your usual workwear, without going all-out. Offset their brilliance with metallic micro-detail – a mirrored heel or sparkling accessory will work wonders.
Think classic square toes and vintage-feel, jewel-encrusted embellishments. Cool but ladylike, they’ll amp up a blazer, logo tee and jeans combo.
THE STREET STYLE:
Mirror, mirror, welcome to fall, where reflective accessories are the fairest of them all. From high-shine heels to mega-watt clutch bags, a flash of silver adds polish to your autumnal wardrobe. Soup up heritage checks and jewel-toned eveningwear, or elevate denim with this fashion favorite.
THE UPDATED ACCESSORY:
Minimalists, don’t swipe left just yet: the chandelier earring is actually a surprisingly slick styling hack for anyone allergic to dressing up. To add polish to an off-duty outfit, simply tie your hair back in a neat ponytail and add some decadent, dangly earrings. Office-ready in record time, sans faff or frippery.
