Current Trends in the Fall-Winter Collections at Ocean Plaza
Famous blogger Liza Krasnova shared in her blog the main trends that found in the collections of famous brands at Ocean Plaza.
I am sure that at least once, while reading the articles about trends, you have been thinking where to find a particular favorite thing, besides the pictures from the catwalks. I’ve solved that problem both for you and me by making a list of urgent things and looking for them in the stores.
To make things easier, I went to the shopping mall, where all shops are located in one space. My choice is Ocean Plaza, because it has a large range of products and brands, which you can’t find anywhere else. Also there is my favorite Mango, which is unrealistic big, and it seems to be the biggest store of the brand in Ukraine.
So let’s see the key trends.
Bohemian style that was popular this summer migrated to the new season. That in general, is understandable and wearable. For example, light dress can be “wrapped up” in a warm coat or combined with sweaters, which also means combining textures. Even ultralight summer dress should stay in wardrobe, if combined with a large knitted sweater, highlighting the waistline with thin strap.
Long loose coat, as if taken from the man's shoulder, will warm not only the models with brittle fashion shows, but also serve as a “workhorse” for anyone in the city. Bright colors will not stay unnoticed in the crowd. I have found suitable cut in Maje, even in combination with a beautiful color! But choose models that really fit you, not to “drown” in them, not to cross the line between oversize and just the wrong size.
Sporty chic is still relevant, because not everyone is ready to wear chiffon dresses. Several current styles to choose between will allow you to choose something truly yours. And even within one store, you can see the dress along with sneakers and bombers, or, for example, a silk top embroidered with sequins and ripped jeans. To clarify, I’ll show you three different looks, selected at the Mango store.
Velvet prevails among tissues. And this is quite understandable, because that makes look even more luxurious and cozy at the same time. Choose deep saturated colors for the colder time or going out, they look expensive and create the whole image. However light velvet dress can be safely mixed with sport elements to wear on warm autumn days.
Metallized fabrics also stay on top. You can safely continue wearing things from the summer season, mixing them with warm clothing. For example, I did this way with things from the new Silvian Heach collections. But keep in mind that choosing such things, you should forget about bright accessories, because such things are self-sufficient, and additional decorations can simply overload the whole image. The most popular colors are silver and gold, but try to trim them, starting from your color type not to “get lost” in your dress.
Certainly, in cold season our wardrobe changes its color. This fall, it is filled with the bulk of quiet colors. Cool blue, like icicles, delicate pearly gray and coffee with milk, and along with it you’ll find juicy green and flaming red. The palette of the main 10 colors can be found on the website of the Institute of Pantone colors as well as on all key catwalks:
Riverside – Pantone 17-4028
Airy Blue – Pantone 14-4122
Sharkskin – Pantone 17-3914
Aurora Red – Pantone 18-1550
Warm Taupe – Pantone 16-1318
Dusty Cedar – Pantone 18-1630
Lush Meadow – Pantone 18-5845
Spicy Mustard – Pantone 14-0952
Potter’s Clay – Pantone 18-1340
Bodacious – Pantone 17-3240
All of them can be easily combined with each other, and look very self-sufficient in mono version. And even in a sports store Puma, you can easily find the shoes or hoodie of fashionable colors.
When it comes to shoes, the so-called block heels are at the top list of shoe trends of the season. This stable heel increases the ease of very pleasant soft step and reduces pressure on the legs. Very humane trend, as for me. Such heel looks cool, both with classical shoes and high boots.
Also shoes with animal prints and textures, as well as with a metallic coating are popular. If you love attractive shoes, then choose the options of combination skin, or with unusual heels, which has particular emphasis this season. Lovers of the classics will be pleased to know that a sharp toe is trending. All of these models, you can easily find on the shelves at Helen Marlen.
Bags should be geometric, for example, trendy trunk-bags, which, incidentally, are very practical because of their spaciousness, also pay attention to the bag-pack or bag-sack.
If you do not want to experiment with the form, you can try trendy prints, for example, the popular geometric pattern or animalistic coloring. Bags with long chains are still popular. Or you can also get warm with fur bags, which this season designers predict to become really popularity. The largest selection of bags of all colors, shapes and textures is0 presented in Parfois.
If we are talking about jewelry then geometry and metallic are still trendy. Chokers don’t lose popularity, but they are made of thin silk ribbons turned into a massive metal “collars”, and even better, with stones. It’s better to choose raw stones, it gives a special style to the whole piece. Chains and large crystals are also popular, along with impressive pendants and bracelets voluminous. Large rings, jewelry, inspired by flora and fauna, pearls and bohemian brush – pay attention to these options.
And I will show a little more current images and just good things, perhaps you have been looking for some of them;) Items selected in Mango stores, Maje, Puma, Silvian Heach, Parfois and Helen Marlen.
