Hello Everyone! Welcome back after a long comforting vacation –hopefully on your end as well as it was on ours. As you may have noticed along the past two or three weeks, Cairo has finally seen the light and the BREEZE –brace yourselves, YES, it FINALLY seems like FALL is here! I know we’re all still into our summer neons and sandals, but I think we’re bidding them farewell soon and with the nights getting chiller, I think we should consider some pre-fall essentials that should be available in our wardrobes the next few weeks.
Dude! And I thought I’d never see coats in my articles. *phew* Anyway, Stella McCartney is our role model when it comes to few words and great actions. Her pieces may not stand out or WOW you as you see them instantly, but she’s definitely a trend setter! McCartney’s approach to pre-fall: “to address every need of the modern woman’s wardrobe.” And she’s set the rules for that and left you to choose which pieces you’ll be selecting according to the criteria clearly stated in her Pre-Fall 2013 collection.
Rule No. 1: Go OVER-SIZED or Go Home!
Whether it is a bomber jacket, knit sweater or coat or even pants, it has to be chunky and over-sized if you’ll go by Stella’s rules! We took the liberty of choosing some pieces for you. Here they are!
Rule No. 2: Stripe it!
Stella has a thing for vertical stripes, in black, brown or grey combined with ivory white in tailored classic and chic pants or shirt or dress or anything! If you’re not so into that kind of wide-legged pants; you can wear them in skinnies, no problem at all.
Rule No. 3: BOLD COLORS
Fall isn’t just about camel, black, navy and brown anymore. Stella’s extended the color palette, from bright orange or teal blue over-sized coats, to red pants, orange skirt and baby blue tuxedo –also over-sized blazer, maroon red everything. This color is SO IN this fall/winter so you don’t have to go old school anymore. You can even team up your summer neons with your fall colors for the coolest look ever.
Take a look at your wardrobe now!
