F/W 2017 Trend: Cropped Sweater

Those who think that cropped tops are only for the warm-weather months are sadly mistaken. This fall, they are shorter and trendier than ever, giving your favorite shirts a whole new look!
Get your crop top fix during the colder months with those super-short sweaters.

The Hoodie

Trending now is the hoodie, but not just a hoodie… I am talking oversized, logo embellished, expensive and sold-out hoodies! The streets of New York, London, Milan and Paris have been filled with showgoers cocooned in those must-haves, and celebrities like Rihanna and Kim Kardashian are stepping out in hoodies that don’t call for any pants.

Suddenly, the hoodie becomes a luxurious wardrobe piece that you can dress up with a pencil or ruffled skirt and heels. But how much should you pay for a hoodie?

My favorite this F/W 2017: Cotton hoodie by Balenciaga
it comes with a hefty price tag of approximately CHF 600.00.

If you are maxing out your credit card for one of these beauties below, don’t feel guilty! It is worth this season… and if you don’t want to, no worries. You can always buy a CHF 10.00 hoodie and maybe look just as cool.

Fashion Is Not Superficial

Are you one of those who think fashion is superficial? Sorry, you are absolutely wrong. First of all you cover what most likely means a lot to you, your body, second of all, fashion has power. People are judging you during the first seconds they meet you. So choose your outfit wisely. Now, it is time to set a statement!

Here are some sweaters that are embellished with great essential quotes. Your turn to choose your mantra!

Trending – The Army-Green Bomber Jacket

Update your outerwear edit with one of those amazing army-green bomber jackets. No outerwear trend has caught on quite as rapidly as bomber jackets have over the past year. It is quite obvious why… First, practicality. They’re ideal for in between seasons and vary in weight and fabrication, meaning you’ll be able to find one that’s light enough for summer and also one that’s warm enough for winter. Essentially, they’re a year-round staple.

My absolute favorite: Balenciaga‘s bomber jacket has everything you would look for, even the iconic orange lining. The satin-like technical fabrication is water repellent, allowing for a cool look rain or shine. I love!

Prada x Mytheresa Capsule Collection

Great news, here is another beautiful capsule collection that is launching today exclusively at mytheresa.com. Italian fashion house Prada has joined forces with the Munich based online retailer for colorful line that features a bright selection of shoes, handbags and ready-to-wear. The beauty is in the detail, with a focus on delicate embellishments in different variations. Added as shoulder straps for bags or as a lavish update to classical white shirts or dresses and uniquely patterned skirts, the decadent use of feathers and pearls gives quintessential Prada glamour.

My favorite is this stunning feather-trimmed printed silk shirt.

I truly love the feather embellished items – a great way to be ahead of the fashion game as plumage is one of the big trends for F/W 2017 (click here for the previous trend report). Here is your chance to own an exclusive limited edition piece.

Louis Vuitton Series 7 New Ad Campaign

I love when the new ad campaigns are released for the upcoming season as I always like to see what the brands have come up with. Louis Vuitton took a cast of mostly young A-list house ambassadors to be featured in the new “Series 7” campaign for the F/W 2017 collection, which takes shape in an industrial world of raw elements and stark lines.

Against this ideal cinematic backdrop photographer Bruce Weber has set a romantic ballet of never-before-seen characters and powerful heroines. Whether massed in groups, paired off, or singled out for solos, these models generate surprise against a multiplicity of décors and visuals. Among the models faithful to Nicolas Ghesquière’s imagination—a feminine cohort that he delights in transforming every season—are some prestigious guests. Riley Keough, Jaden Smith, Sophie Turner, Catherine Deneuve, and Kevin Michel arise like serendipitous interlopers in the photographs’ composition, fitting right in to the modern tale.

I especially like the close-up shot of the fantastic new embellished clutch bag!
