How to wear AW 2016 trends from catwalks in real life

HOW TO WEAR TRENDS FROM CATWALKS IN REAL LIFE

I remember being little and watching enthusiastically various fashion shows, on TV of course. Sitting on the sofa, with my eyes peeled, I used to give notes for every show and then comparing to my mum`s to see if she feels the same. I was so intrigued by how creative designers are. Today I have teamed up with Apricot and I tried to be as ingenious as I could styling winter trends in real life.

Nowadays, society tries to set standards of “beauty and normality”. It`s ok to be different, I would say, and more important is to know you can achieve everything your dream for. Catwalks create the illusion of the “perfect body”, but fashion then tells a story that`s all about expressing, finding yourself and not giving a damn… So what stops you to feel good in your skin? 

POSH PUFFA and VELVET

Posh puffa and velvet are two of my favourite trends this season. If someone had asked my opinion few year ago about wearing parka jackets with an evening outfit, I would have said: ” Are you crazy? You can`t match sports items with a charming night piece!” Well, Stella McCartney did it and so many other creators. I tend to believe designers wanted to bring practicality back into the fashion game for this autumn and winter season. Puffa jacket and an exquisite dress? Yes, that`s a win-win situation: a warm and stylish kind of day.

BROCADE AND  ALL GREY

I can`t image any winter without opting for grey shades. The brocade takes you back to Byzantium nobility or the Italian Renaissance. How to wear brocade you probably wonder? Brocade can be dressed down quite quickly, and you can wear it daytime too not just for the evening. Don`t worry about the volume that the fabric has, just add one brocade piece to your outfit, and you`ll be okay.

HOODIES AND LACE

The lace, sweetheart lines, velvet touch, ruffles are at one pole but the elevated sportswear strikes back adding some dimension to your style. Yes, the `90 street-style aesthetic, hoodies are back this season. Don`t be afraid to integrate the sporty look into your routine. Who says you can`t pair anoraks or hoodies with leather skirts or even dresses? Balenciaga?

    I love how you styled each outfit. My favorite will probably be the last dress. I rarely see catwalk pieces being worn in real life.
