Women in Business - Fall 2017 - 35
THIS SEASON MAKE A
S E L F - A S S U R E D FA S H I O N S TAT E M E N T
IN SHADES OF CRIMSON.
Metallic touches, glitter, and
sparkle seemed to turn up all
over-both in outfits stretching from
head-to-toe or a in tiny bit for show.
Choose from an entire chainmail dress to
glitter-studded boots, from metallic tops to
full silver pantsuits.
NEVERTHELESS, THEy PERSISTED
It should surprise no one that a big item for
autumn is the oh-so-clever political T-shirt.
From "Stay Woke" to "Je Suis une Suffra-Gette,"
fashionistas chose, well, a literal statement as
their statement pieces. The great thing about the
trend is this: It's a T-shirt! Meaning literally anyone
can pull it off, and there's a slogan no matter
your political persuasion, from the ubiquitous
"Make American Great Again" (red!) ball cap to
its "Make America new york" counterpart (also a
ball cap-and also red!). Just save this one for the
weekend-remember, no politics at the office.
Call them neutral, tartan, or
just plain plaid, checked fabrics
are branching out from a
single staple item-a skirt, a
sweater-to pantsuits, jackets,
and even evening gowns. Who
knew such a comforting classic
could be so convertible?
