The temperatures are dropping, the leaves are starting to turn and fall off the trees, and the window displays in Buenos Aires' boutiques have changed meaning that fall is upon us. It's time to switch over your wardrobe and look to the new autumn/winter trends for wardrobe inspiration. To give you a helping hand, here's our guide to some of our favourite fashion trends for Autumn/Winter 2017.
Stripes are a timeless classic that never seem to go out of style. However, this season's stripes have taken a turn towards the bold. Moving away from the normal Breton stripe, these stripes make more of a statement, be it on tops, bottoms or dresses. Focus on bright colours, different proportions and materials and you’ll be turning heads.
The Assymetrical Shirt
Moving on from the off-the-shoulder trend of the summer, this fall is all about the asymmetrical one sleeve, and it's one of our favourite looks for this autumn/winter in Argentina. The classic shirt has been deconstructed with collars and buttons in all the wrong (right) places and lots of draping, wide sleeves and bow details, making this a smart yet edgy piece for your wardrobe. Opt for something in a neutral color or a light blue.
Shearling was one of the biggest trends this past Autumn/winter season in the northern hemisphere, appearing on nearly every runway from New York to London and Paris. From the classic black or brown long coats to more adventurous colourful and cropped styles, which are more suited to Buenos Aires' milder winters, we are loving the trend because it’s stylish and comfortable. And since there's an abundance of beautiful sheepswool in Argentina, you can create your own bespoke shearling jacket or coat in the city for a fraction of the runway price.
The leather jacket continues to be a wardrobe must-have for men, giving an effortlessly stylish edge to any outfit. Argentina is famous for its buttery soft leather and the city has numerous talented leather tailors that can help you create your ideal leather jacket. You can try your hand at custom designing the cut, colour, zippers and other details yourself, or copy a style from the runway or a magazine.
The revival of the turtle neck is in full swing, for both women and men. This 70s trend that made a comeback in the early 90s and hasn't really been seen since is back with a new sense of style. It can be worn on its own or layered under a shirt or sweater to keep you cosy but looking on top of your style game.
