september's new styles strait off the runway

Many Ngom

It’s September, the New Year’s Eve of the fashion world, and everyone is ready to redraw the lines. This season, designers shifted from simple cuts to intricate assemblages and from highly ornamented fabrics to pure threads. Taste of Life gathered up the cornucopia of new styles to help you expertly update your wardrobe.

Little Red Riding Hood had the right idea; capes are perfect for transitioning from summer to fall. Right now, designers are updating her monochrome version with demure embroidery and softly-lit patterns. And remember, collars speak volumes.

FUR TRADE

Fur is a must this fall. Most designers experimented with cut-and-sew and colour blocking and the result is a playing field set for a whole new game. From Valentino to Fendi, fur’s new look is bold and fun with an elegant twist.

PRETTY KNIT

For fall knits, designers went all the way, totally redefining the knit identity as we know it. A go-to outfit can now include knit pants or a skirt to match your classic, cozy sweater. Keep your eyes peeled for knit blazers, too.

FOR SHEER

Goddess-like dresses in light silks and crepes dominate the runways, as though to make us yearn for summer still. Frocks now are fluid and flowing in refined body lengths — like autumn foliage in a landscape painting.

TOP COAT

Your fall coat... is it long, three quarters or short? Length matters not, as long as the line is clean. With a big, prominent collar and a belt, you’re off and running.

SUIT YOURSELF

Going back to work? Break out all your best finishing touches and don contemporary suit pieces that bring out your personality. No longer plain and simple, this fall’s suits are tailored with so much beauty and complexity that they can be worn from the office to cocktails to parties.

OPTICAL INFUSION

Don’t over-focus on the prints; you might see stars or get dizzy from this season’s burst of lush patterns. Designers decided to play havoc with our eyes, offering a stunning array of geometric patterns that definitely bring an urban feel to Fall 2014.

royal treatment

Despite a cooling of the trend, your inner noblewoman can still look forward to a few embellishments this season. Dolce & Gabana, Mary Katrantzou, and Oscar de la Renta have proved that rich, multi-textured and embroidered garments are just the ticket when we need to look ultra-put together.
