On a working or out for a walk around town? Forget the usual shapes, the classic sheath dress, and the flat and rigid fabrics. The new fashion wants clothes and accessories to be unpredictable, with a strong character and never trivial.
As we have seen in the latest catwalks of Versace, Fabiana Filippi, Max Mara, Rick Owens, Gucci and Valentino, the new silhouettes alternate soft lines to more precise and geometric cuts, love the movement created by unusual cuts, asymmetrical lines, draped surfaces, frills and ruffles.
The extravagant details, frivolous and pretty, that some time ago would have been reserved for evening or cocktail dresses, are now interpreted in a completely new manner, more contemporary and suited to the metropolitan life of a modern woman. Fashion designers find a renewed freedom, enrich the classic shapes with light draping, small ruffles, soft fabrics and overlapping of asymmetric layers that give a touch of mildly bon-ton, a sophisticated but comfortable elegance, a sense of lighthearted and updated romanticism to the day look.
Sometimes, with just a few simple details, even the most serious wardrobe can find a new life. Here the latest trend in our three proposals.
Fashion is often a matter of right balance between shapes, materials and colors. The latest trends, however, favor another kind of idea, decidedly more biased. Asymmetry becomes conceptual and is everywhere: in the hems that become multilevel, in the double-breasted closures, in different ways to color a shirt, in the shoes that look like sneakers but are pumps and in the bags with different shoulder straps. Strange but beautiful!

The drapery has ancient origins, was loved by the Greeks and Romans, covered with grace the beautiful female bodies in almost all the antique paintings, and still today it is the most comfortable way to wear a dress. Expertly used without excesses, it becomes a truly feminine detail, perfect for addressing the hectic working days with something as soft as a cuddle.

The latest fashion trends also want the wardrobe of the modern woman full of femininity and cheerfulness: just add flounces and ruffles, maybe in a sensual black and red colors matching, to give movement and a touch of creativity to your look.
