[dropcap custom_class=”normal”]A[/dropcap] couple of weeks ago we looked at Alberta Ferretti’s Resort 2015 collection. Well today we are taking a step back to look at the Pre-Fall 2014 collection. After all it is fall and we are all shopping for fall clothes at the moment. Right? The Pre-Fall collection embraces a number of trends while also managing to surprise us with some unexpected moments. Knits, which are big for fall, show up in the expected neutrals but they also make an appearance in a bright canary yellow, not a color generally associated with fall. However they are paired with a slightly more subdued jade print and black and white paint splash print to give it a less spring like feel. But the cut of the skirts reminds us that wearing clothes should be fun, and a flouncy mini is certainly fun. The skirts are balanced by garments with a less structured fit. The non body-con silhouette is still big for fall as well, and this is expressed in a semi-fitted, vaguely boxy suit in a beautiful burgundy print, an asymmetrical A-line slip dress in basic black, and a sleeveless, beautifully draped hoodie dress. There are also empire waisted sleeveless gowns, an edgy satin dress in an over-sized box cut with layered cap sleeves and a super chic lace and satin like top.
[dropcap custom_class=”normal”][/dropcap] You will also find a below the knee pleated dress, a stand-out fitted black and white print cocktail dress, as well as a more romantic cocktail dress in black lace. And another stand out is the burgundy, paint-splatter print matching skirt and jacket set. Pair it with some patent booties like these and no one can accuse you of being derelict in your fashionista duties. So my fellow fashionista’s I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I hope you enjoyed this week’s Look Book Friday.
