Everyone has dreamed of being a rock star - or maybe the girlfriend of the rock star - and the Fall/Winter 2016-17 collections paid homage to a few of these eternal style icons, Stevie Nicks, Bianca Jagger and Debbie Harry. Think luxurious designs in velvet, leather, black lace, and sequins, statement jewelry that is meant to be seen, and jackets with bandleader detailing. It is the opposite of sweet and demure, and definitely not for wallflowers.
If you buy one thing this fall make it a trophy jacket. There is a style for everyone and every budget. A bandleader jacket makes a fashion statement but retains a cool factor, goes with everything from skirts to jeans, to black trousers, to a topper over a dress. You can wear it with anything from florals, to brocades, to leather. It is every bit as versatile as a jean jacket or a black blazer so wear it with a laid back casual style or dress it up however you want. It’s a classic style that repeats itself every few years so don’t be afraid to invest in your favorite one. If you are on a budget, check for actual bandleader jackets at thrift shops and embellish it with pins or regalia to customize it.
Black lace is having a moment and the style this time around is to look a little racy while not looking at all vulgar. So black lace lingerie that peaks out from a sweater, or from a jacket – leather or velvet would be nice, or even a camisole worn with pants hits the right note between “wow” and “whoa”.
Channel your inner rock chick and kick it up a notch this fall by wearing your bandleader jacket every weekend wherever you go, add some black lace under your sweaters and jackets for work and lose the sweaters and jackets for after work, and add some jewelry that is more cool than heirloom-serious. Fall just got fun.
