First Glimpse at Zara AW17 Collection
I am a summer baby (the #bday will soon be upon us), so I do enjoy the heat, carefree sunny days and lounging around, mostly in my back garden, in my daisy dukes. However, I do get excited about wrapping up again at the end of it. Colder days = equals more clothing. I also love wearing boots, which is why I was delighted to see what’s coming in the new season from Zara.
First off the starting block (their sale isn’t over yet), they are already beginning to release the AW17 Collection, so let’s take a gander and see what we might like.
Interesting isn’t it? I love it. Possibly because I’m short and a bit of print past the knee can give you a good, slimming shape, but also it has 3/4 length sleeves, which are so flattering, an interesting neckline and slide split. You can also wear it with boots.
P.S. Does anyone still have this belt from the eighties?? If so, get to the back of your wardrobe and fetch it out.
More side split and boot action and eighties appeal. Seriously, was this collection made with the 40-something gorgeous woman in mind, or what. Love it. Did I mention that when I had my “colours done” many moons ago that I was told I have skin tones that can wear Autumn colour.
Okay, I understand that the vibrancy in this picture can be worrying to some, but let’s break it down and think about how WE can style it. Take the boots for starters, they’re a sateen high heel, but block heels, so easier to walk in. What about wearing the skirt (right) with a black polo neck jumper and black boots, for a more toned down look?
Big sweeping coat. Tick.
