Spitting over his left shoulder to avoid jinxing, we admit: we have a nice European winter outside, like a Christmas card. Sacrifice style for the sake of survival is not necessary – you can safely be guided only by fashion. This winter, we look back at two eras. First, the 1940s with their strict forms, fitted jackets and straight skirts.Secondly, the 1980s with all the ensuing consequences: sequins, shoulder pads, bright artificial fur. Outside of the disco of the 80’s, the color palette of winter is quite ascetic – a lot of black, and as an alternative, it offers the skin tones of beige and cream.
In fact, it’s already so clear that fur and winter are two things inseparable. But this winter, fashion especially urgently demands to find a more feminine alternative to the bored uniform – down jacket. At the peak of fashion, the sheepskin coats returned, and the influence of the forties stimulates the extraction of noodles from the caracul. However, the purchase of a natural fur coat or sheepskin coats is a serious test for the budget (and for some girls – and for conscience, which will call the mink bloody in the eyes).
But an artificial fur coat does not cost more than a down jacket and heats no worse. In addition, it is easier to combine it with a wardrobe: it does not drive into the framework of a sport-boneless style, like a down jacket, but also does not suffer from excessive pathos like a real fur coat. The most fashionable coat of the season has an almost scandalous coloring – a shocking leopard. However, the leopard walks wherever he wants – dresses, tops, clutches … The main accessory, without which brutal coloring is better not to wear, remains a remarkable sense of humor and self-irony.
“Leopard” is fashionable, and the gray “leopard” is a supermodel! “- commented Svetlana Zubova, Merchandiser Marmalato.
Double-breasted forged coat “under the gray leopard” made of imitation fur, imitating a pony. 5199 rubles., Mango.
Irina Prygina, merchandiser Mango, among the most pressing things of the season calls a fur vest: “This season there are, firstly, habitual fur casual vests that are worn multilayered with plaid shirts, sweaters, jeans. Checkered shirts, by the way, come back. And secondly, there are evening variations on the vest of artificial fur or even thick feathers, which you can wear with a dress. ”

The variety of forms of
Fur is also fabulously popular as a decoration for bags. This is the main winter news in the marsupial world, because in general the bags keep the autumn trend: we wear almost everything, except perhaps radical oversize. “Clutches, bags, and large bags are also relevant, but bag-briefcases are a favorite,” says Svetlana Zubova. “Also from the beginning of the season, accessories in the rocker style are not becoming less fashionable: riveting, chains, decor in the form of thorns – they will be relevant at least next spring.”
Another hero of the season – a bag in the style of the strict forties: with a rigid shape, a triangular flank and a flat bottom.
“So far, there are not many such people in the mass market, they are mainly in the luxury segment,” continues Svetlana Zubova.
A large bag in the form of a vertical rectangle made of gray artificial fur with a short and long belt – to choose from. 2599 rubles., Mango.
“Like last winter, fashion knit dresses and tunics are in fashion – we have a lot of them: blue, gray, striped. We wear with dense colored pantyhose and boots, “says Maria Artamonova, stylist Topshop. The weather is on our side – and we choose the taste and color of dense and smooth pantyhose, even if knitted – mesh or pigtails. Black is the favorite of the season, and pantyhose is no exception. Those who prefer cheerful, this winter, judging by the range of networks “Planet of Pantyhose” and Calzedonia, will wear mostly juicy purple and blue pantyhose.
On the podiums pantyhose with shiny special effects reigns (the influence of indiscreet 80’s affects), pantyhose repeating the figure of clothes (it will not be easy to find such an option for reasonable money, but, remember, this is a hit). And, finally, visually extending legs pantyhose into a large vertical black and white strip. The last option was found in Topshop – though, in nylon performance, implying a car at the doorstep.
Black, blue, cream, chocolate tight pantyhose 80-120 den. 699 rubles., Topshop.
Like a chicken paw
For those who are not allowed to dress in a purple tights and leopard coat, it’s worth paying attention to the return of the pattern, which has become the standard of conservative elegance. The forgotten black and white “chicken foot” – or “pier de bullets”, the favorite pattern of Christian Dior – this season generously walked along the podiums. To not be bored, in one outfit can combine “paws” of different sizes – the effect is directly psychedelic. Well, the most keen option is the “chicken foot” for several seasons of the non-surrendering dress-case.
