Perhaps it’s the evolution of the ‘boyfriend’ look, or the early 90s making a formidable fashion comeback (or the combination of both), but it’s easy to see that the shape of clothing for fall speaks volumes, and quite literally. From the waist through the ankle, pants are becoming more relaxed in fit, while tops and dresses are taking the liberty to balloon out in all directions.
All sorts of ruching details, such as pleating and gathering, have surfaced in order to reign in the superfluous shapes, while other accents, such as ripping and tearing, encourage the fabrics to flow freely. There may be some trepidation with committing to a new shape, but we at FPD will help you navigate by sharing how to style this spacious silhouette.
