The Shape of Things to Come

The new shape that is emerging from all the shows is the structured jacket with high shoulders and slim waist, which I love. This controversial figure is seen with a critical eye – especially from the ones that remember the extreme shape from the 80’s. It differs because now it is worn with demure colors like black or white. It would also be a good idea to avoid gigantic jewelery, big hair and cat fights by the pool.

Only time will tell if these pieces can break back into everyday use but always-fashion-forward Ashley Olsen has already worn two magnificent forms of the new silhouette from her and MK’s line The Row. High heels seem to be a must along with a who-cares-for-stares attitude.

Wel, for me, I'm excited to wear jackets again! (Altho I'm also investing in a Stella Mc over size cardi too) And I'm loving the more controlled, sexy look that's been coming through.

I love the 1940s silhuette - tiny waist, wide sholders and a- line skirt. It looks great in a modern version too - the skinny trouser with wide shoulders.
Your blog is gorgeous, really well written and great layout.

the black and white combination is great, specially to go out at night, but at the moment I´m not a big fan of the duo

I love those ways to wear jackets! The Balenciaga collection is my favourite!

I loved Balenciaga and Stella McCartney's versions of the structured jacket. Ashley Olsen's white one is the best for my opinion though.

Ashley Olsen looks amazing in both oufits! I'm really excited to see more of The Row, as well as their other line Elizabeth and James (the more affordable one). Great Post!
