Ever-present topic we could discuss for ages – what women like to wear.

Luckily, designers and in-house fashion wizards are doing a very good job at presenting fall/winter trends so diverse, anybody can find an item they will like.

We are opening the door of this late fall with you by presenting the top styles and fashion names to explore so you can enjoy getting ready for the months to come.

Feel royal with bold colors

Powerful jewel tons will rule the season. If you are not afraid to risk and play with colors to break the darkness of a bit boring black and brown, go for amethyst, ruby, deep jade, sapphire, and citrine. Shopping for pieces like this will make you feel luxe simply because of their brave appearance.

Asymmetrical sleeves

The newest way to show some skin is with totally asymmetrical sleeves and necklines. In most cases, fashion gurus go for full coverage with one sleeve and the other shoulder completely sleeveless. It’s a good choice for all the ladies who are fashion-forward and prefer silky fabrics.

Colored leather

It's officially leather weather and many designers gave us ideas too fabulous to ignore. Play and research, dig and explore and once we give you the ideas for stores to go to, go for bold hues like ultraviolet, royal blue and caramel! Pandemic or not, it’s always time to stand out!

'80s Rocker

Rocker-chic is one of the styles for the season and it involves a lot of leather, some bold platforms, strong shoulders with a cinched waist and colorful printed scarfs. You can experiment a lot and make both plane and more playful combinations with all that this style is about.

Modern Equestrian

Plane and easy to wear fashion style that is not just about riding boots and hats or horsebit belts. Try out searching for slim pants in warm colors tucked into boots. Sharp tailoring and leather details are also key features of this 2020 fall esthetic.
