Unexpected Silhouettes, Mixed-Up Patterns, and a Killer Lady-Suit: Fashion Gets Fun Again
The best looks for fall 2018.
Show of hands — who’s had enough of minimalism? When it comes to getting done up to go out, we say it’s time to get weird and let loose, to trade in that jeans-and-a-nice-top look for something more fun. We’re talking unexpected silhouettes (hello, volume and fringe), mixed-up patterns and, when all else fails, a killer lady-suit.
Now, get out there and show that gala (and drink date, gallery opening, or dinner at Stephen Starr’s new joint) who’s boss.
