The clothing was styled into demure silhouettes. Lots of high necks and peter pan collars. Fur collars and wraps gave some richness to some outfits. There were ladylike sweaters paired with trousers that ended above the ankle.
It was all about jeweled shoes for me. I love anything with lots of tasteful (or not so tasteful) jewels. There was a mix of dainty flats up to platform heels. The jeweled flowers across the vamp were sized accordingly. I love the look of the sparkle on top of the animal or floral print.
The otherwise simple shapes of the clothing were made up with the heavily embellished collars. There was elaborate jewel embroidery on simple blouses and jackets. The antique brooch trend from last season was elaborated upon with multiple brooches or over-sized jeweled embroidery on the chest as an alternative. Makeup was simple and soft. Like a blushing lady with a smarter edge behind her eyes. Hair was kept simple. Clean or pulled back.
I liked seeing the softer colors and lighter layers for fall and winter. Not every customer lives in a subzero climate (like NYC this fashion week!). Indoors can be roasting while the outdoors are frigid. Kate Spade Fall 2016 tweeds paired with light sweaters over crepe dresses might be exactly what city dressing needs to be for the modern gal.
