“One of my personal favorite trends is what we’re job ‘Santa Fe’ around a office,” Pantin pronounced in a write interview. “It’s a small bit Southwestern-inspired, with a Native American influence, sweeping coats, Pendleton prints.”
Look for “blanket skirts with border using down a front, and anything natural, handcrafty, folksy.” The Lucky editor, herself a Texas native, says “a lot of these things, we can find vintage. we bought a lot of good pieces on eBay.”
The trend is branch adult in scarves, too, with “knit border on a ends, folksy and handcraftsy printed sweeping scarves.”
COATS, SWEATERS AND JACKETS
Pantin’s foresee for outerwear trends: downy coats; shearling; a bit of a “’70s ski lodge” look, including Fair Isle sweaters; big, oversized cardigans and prolonged “sweater dusters” that are “relaxed and lax and lux and cozy.” And here’s a turn on a beloved jacket: Make an oversized vest by slicing a sleeves off an oversized, mid-thigh blazer.
PRINTS AND COLORS
“Baby blue has been everywhere for outerwear,” pronounced Pantin. “It’s good to see lighter colors. Baby blue churned with black and gray is pretty, purify and bright.” Also on a tumble palette: “emerald green, that is beautiful and some-more of a normal tumble color.”
In addition, Pantin said, “black and white never unequivocally goes out of style. I’m also vehement about plaids, though in a lighter tone palette — some-more white-based plaids, with a softer winter white. And leopard is carrying a small bit of a moment.”
“It’s going to be about true trouser pants,” a Lucky character editor predicted. “Super-skinny is not wholly on a approach out, though it’s not a many stream look. It’s some-more about high waist, true leg or far-reaching leg, and culottes and gaucho pants. If we were going to get a far-reaching leg, a span of nap trousers would be a good buy.”
“Clothing shapes are not utterly so tight, though a small bit some-more relaxed,” Pantin said. “Mid-calf is still a approach to go for dress length — 3 or 4 inches above a ankle. Also: pencil weave skirts and elastic fabrics.”
BOOTS AND SHOES
Look for ankle booties and fight foot styles with a “punky vibe,” including a brief heel and fun colors, Pantin says. The ideal example: a lead span from Saint Laurent.
Just as summer sandal trends enclosed thick slides, genuine Tevas and what some fashion-watchers called a “ugly shoe” look, Pantin predicts winter boots will embody a “frumpy boot” and genuine hiking boots.
“Hiking boots are going to be a thing,” Pantin predicts. “A plain leather span of hiking boots is something I’m privately on a hunt for — plain leather, with a ’70s shape, dull on a front. we like when a trend is something we can buy a authentic chronicle of — when it’s snowy and nasty and they’re built for that.”
As for shoes, flats sojourn “a large thing,” though not a over-the-top flats with straps and zippers from past seasons. This time, it’s “simple ballet flats, dialed down a small bit.” Heels, she predicts, will be “simple, classical boots rather than a violent matter shoe,” such as “pumps and things that don’t have a height and aren’t so crazy-high.”
Aside from a ever-popular Converse, sneakers are going a small frumpy, too: consider Stan Smith boots from Adidas and “New Balance father shoes.”
