Voluminous cut and flared coats, blanket capes and slouched boots – no matter the season fashion loves to play with shape.
Softer silhouettes have come and gone since ’50s cocoon coats defined elegance more than half a century ago. Now, as sportswear influences transform tailoring, cuts are getting more comfortable. Be it slouchy knits, minimalist mannish tailoring, or a gigantic proportioned tulle skirt, there’s many ways to dress the female form. The lesson? If in doubt take everything a size up for effortless elegance.
While oversized shapes flatter most figures, be careful of proportions; if in doubt, add a heel. Be sure to balance voluminous cuts with streamlined shapes elsewhere. Want to reshape your wardrobe?
