Jacket Power: an Outfit Dissection

A jacket can make or break an outfit in a second. It serves as an instant label of the style that is trying to be conveyed. It can be contradictory, balancing or entirely matching to the rest of the ensemble. You can be wearing the exact same pieces and the jacket you choose to go with them will create a fashion sense the others cannot.

Take for example, a polished and sensual one-shoulder dress in black (Alexander Wang), a retro inspired bag (D&G Dolce & Gabbana) and a pair of modern cutout booties (Dolce & Gabbana). Put on a strong-shouldered leather jacket with a snakeskin pattern (Miss Selfridge) and your sharp look is now Biker Chic. //Contradictory

Mix a ruffle front silk blouse (See by Chloé) with a pair of indigo boyfriend jeans (Topshop), a metallic handbag (Tylie Malibu) and patent leather sneakers (Converse). Counterbalance the comfy romantic look with a straight and structured peaked shoulder jacket in black (Sportmax) and create a Classic Edge. //Balancing

A midnight rocker look consisting of black stretch leather leggings (Vanessa Bruno), an oversized sequin tank (Sass and Bide) and studded peeptoe shoe boots (Steve Madden) is made complete with a relevant starry tuxedo jacket (Markus Lupfer). //Matching

This fall, the power jacket is the master of outerwear. Structured, with simple lines, Balmain-inspired strong shoulders and full of character, the jacket has become a trend in itself.

Heritage Chic

Be it outerwear, blouses, jewelry or accessories, the pre-fall mood is powerful, retro and playful in one. Inspired by various decades and evoking pure nostalgia, heritage chic is a true statement of uniqueness and versatility that can be seamlessly applied to the modern world. When mixed with minimalistic fashion pieces, the character of this style comes to life. Expect this trend to stay strong for the rest of the Autumn Winter season and make it yours by having fun and experimenting with it.

You and Your Boyfriend Blazer

It seems that the "I-just-borrowed-it-from-my-boyfriend-and-went-out-the-door" mood is everywhere. Boyfriend jeans, shirts and even shoes are now a constant in the shops, but are they as easy to adapt to the rest of your wardrobe as they seem?

Even when the trend has been named after men, the true size and fit on you should never be overlooked. The sure choice of the pack? A long and straight-fitting black blazer made out of supple fabric such as this one by McQ will make your outfit effortlessly elegant and on-trend.

Best of all, a classic black boyfriend blazer will take you seamlessly from summer to fall and forward without succumbing with the trend when the word "boyfriend" is no longer attached to it.

How to pull off a pair of harem pants: An Outfit Dissection

Opinions on harem pants have been divided ever since they made their appearance on the fashion runways a few seasons ago. Other terms you might have heard include zoave, lungi, jodhphur, dhoti and peg pants (half harem pant). Whether you consider them a must-have fashion item or view them as an unwanted eighties remnant, the truth is that harem pants are much harder to look good in than a common trouser.

Their different aesthetic make them a strong statement on their own, so the rest of the outfit should be chosen carefully. Black non-shiny harem pants are the best choice as they don't stand out as much and will not widen your silhouette as easily. Choose lightweight fabrics that drape elegantly and naturally as well as a drop-crotch that is not too low. Below, we present you with a few proven options that will help you make the harem pants look flattering: a cropped or fitted jacket, a well-fitting non-slouchy top (a sleeveless style provides more balance) and a pair of strappy or feminine sandals (heels work much better than flats as they will elongate you).

Inherently ultra comfy and slick, not to mention extremely on-trend for the rest of the year, once you find a pair of harem pants that fits you well and the right pieces that seamlessly complement them, it will be hard to let them go.

Twin Pant in Black by Cheap Monday; Cropped Jackets: Open Slub Sweater by Charlotte Russe; Suede Biker Jacket by Maje Gill; Lux Little Brother Blazer by Lux, Urban Outfitters; Flattering Tops and Necklaces: Bias Tank by Organic; Red Flower Necklace by Anthropologie; Modern Art Tank by H&M; Multi-Chain Lenon Necklace by Dannijo; Paillette Tank Top by G-Lish; Patent Leather Neck Piece by Rue du Mail; Feminine Sandals: T-Strap Sandal, Marc by Marc Jacobs; Suede Platform Sandals by Giuseppe Zanotti; Verity Multistrap Sandals by Jimmy Choo.

Nude: The New White

Black and white have proven to be permanent fashion statements. However, as seasons go by, new hues surge as true alternatives to what we already love and know. Cream, pale rose, light peach, beige, ecru, off-white and their derivatives have become more than neutrals, nudes have become the new white. When paired with black, the result is so chic and natural that white is left out of the picture.

Be it for easygoing or elegant outfits, the new white is so simple to carry off that it will become your new fashion ally. White will not stop being a classic, but a less stark, fresher and equally effective alternative is here to stay.

The New Denim Jacket

A denim jacket doesn't have to be predictable and uninspiring to be worn with everything. Structured, full of character and body-conscious are required attributes for any piece you plan to wear constantly. Mango's Denim Jacket represents this entirely by giving a contemporary edge to a well-known garment. This might even be considered a simpler denim version of the trophy jacket, one that is able to speak for a whole outfit.

While the distressed and stonewash look might whisper 80s, this jacket has been designed to create a style that belongs only in the 21st century.
