A popular trend this Fall is the tie neckline and pussy-bow neckline, as recently seen on Melania Trump at the second presidential debate. Seen on both on blouses and flowy dresses, these necklines are probably the most sophisticated fashion trend for Fall 2016. They give both a schoolgirl and Victorian allure to the designs, while bearing a sense of modesty.
Fit-and-flare dresses have been around forever and are making a major comeback in the high fashion world. The fit-and-flare dress is a trend that is your friend! Fit-and-flare dresses, sometimes called skater dresses, have a classic ’60’s style silhouette and are extremely flattering on all body types. The snug body and cinched waist create the illusion of a little waist. The flouncy skirt drapes over the more curvy lower body to make it look like part of the garment, rather than part of your body’s shape. They create an hourglass shape, even if the woman wearing them has a different body type altogether.
That’s why I love this ‘Gwyneth’ dress from Alice and Olivia, which combines both the tie neck and the fit-and-flare design. Equal parts fun and sophisticated, the Gwyneth dress is the colorful piece of our dreams. It gives off a boho-chic ’70s feels. Pair this one with knee-high boots, and you’ve got the perfect fall look.
