The Extra Pieces You Need

The Extra Pieces You Need

Every time we transition to the next season we spend more money than we can afford to update our wardrobes, buying unnecessary so-called ‘stunners’ and ‘must-haves’ whose allure lasts only for a few months. What we really need is the extra pieces that fit into our personal style and wardrobe selections. Keep your classics and basics, yet refresh them with items that are true investments. Shop the items that keep your closet relevant!

Cropped Pants

You either need to crop the pants you already own, or buy new ones at a shorter length. We are always wearing capris and cropped jeans, and this season this little habit becomes a trend. They work with your mid-heel loafers, kitten-heel slingbacks, and block-heel booties. Your precious choice could be Prada Wool-Blend Pants to keep you warm and stylish!

Military-Inspired Outerwear

It stands out for its imposing elements, including gold engraved buttons, epaulettes or accentuated shoulders, and double-breasted, tailored design. Predominantly navy, but also camel, black, and white, military-inspired outerwear makes waves on the catwalks and streets. A military jacket or coat from a premium designer can be rather expensive this moment, yet this version of a Long Knit Vest does the effect at a lower price tag. Plus it’s Pierre Balmain, the more affordable line of the iconic couture house!

Mini Leather Skirt

You definitely need one in black or brown to evoke the 60s-inspired A-line girly sass. You can wear it with classic go-go boots and perhaps with grungy torn fishnet tights. Or you can twist it into a sporty thing with fur-adorned platform sneakers. Juxtapose its sleek silhouette with a slouchy cable-knit sweater for a preppy iteration. This Rebecca Minkoff Button Front Skirt  can be proven to be a valuable belonging.

Striped Sweater

That’s the continuation of the marinière obsession of our summer vacays. Stripes are preppy and sporty and this graphic trend takes us over this fall/winter season. It can be a tribute to Sonia Rykiel who recently passed away, or the idea that lately some designers base whole collections on deconstructing striped motifs. Our McQ Alexander McQueen Embroidered Swallow Striped Sweater  is the perfect example. Mix & match stripes for the coolest look.

All Things Embroidered

We are not talking about eveningwear embroidery, but the one that luxuriates your casual moments. This Coach Everyday Western Dress features floral embroidery at the collarbone. The Alice + Olivia Heart Embroidered Wool Cardigan and the Red Valentino Embroidered Military Canvas Jacket are also ways to play up the greatest FW16 trend!
