Long over long styling is becoming a popular trend both on and off the runways. We have been inspired by the runways of Hermès’ Spring show, who paired gorgeous long slit dresses over tailored trousers and Rag & Bone’s silk pj pants that were paired with an over-sized and extra long sweater.
This style direction is not just reserved for the runways, we have seen it trickling into street style, as many fashionable women begin pairing their long sweaters with midi skirts or ribbed tunics with fluid trousers. The result is an effortless, elegant and slimming effect.
For Pre-Fall it’s all about a slimmer silhouette and here are a few tips when rocking the long on long trend:
● Varying layers work well. If you are wearing a tunic over a pair of trousers, you can complete the look with a cropped jacket, similar to what we saw on the Raf Simons’ Pre-Fall runway.
● Sometimes it’s not just about marrying the two silhouettes, the colours matter, and you want to create the right level of contrast between the two layers. This look works best with simple, light colours.
● For a more interesting look introduce texture to the styling with warm knits and silk.
