Geometric prints, contrast and tailored two-pieces; this season almost has it all. Bold, sophisticated geometric prints and contrast paneled jackets and skirts are easily adapted from catwalk couture to ready-to-wear wonders. Computer calculated patterns add a slightly masculine touch to even the ultra-feminine figure hugging mini skirt, making this look suitable for almost anybody. Colour clashes and cropped tops teamed with the fine lines of a structured jacket are being sighted on the best dressed the world over. Locally, look to Australian designer powerhouse Sass and Bide for your fill of geometric prints on highly tailored pieces.
Start disassociating the finely honed two-piece with the phrase ‘mother-of-the-bride’ and associate it with your new autumn wardrobe. With smart tailored lines only to be surpassed by sassy, high hemlines, this is power-dressing for a whole new generation of women. Add post-modern geometrics to the fitted form of the blazer and you have got your hands on one of the must-have items of the season. Immortalized by the iconic Chanel suit, this reworked style still makes the right kind of statement anytime and anywhere.
