With its winter 2016 catalog, Free People embraces its coziest and chicest look ever, this time around egregiously sported by model of the moment Magdalena Frackowiak. What’s more, the Free People winter 2016 holiday collection is now available for purchase on freepeople.com!
Captured by New York-based fashion photographer Bjorn Iooss, Free People’s winter 2016 catalog is all we need to survive these already arduous, cold months, both in terms of coziness and in terms of style. To make sure we were fully covered from day to night, Free People also added juicier, more conventionally party-ready ensembles, the figures, lines and cuts of which are, however, equally relaxed.
Of course, being a wintery collection, the must-have staple that quickly draws our attention is the sweater. Perfect for Christmas time, most of the Free People winter 2016 lineup’s sweaters and pullovers got decorated with Christmas-inspired motifs, often in traditional red and white shades.
The ‘sweater game’ is then so strong, Free People opted for something fancier too. Throughout the catalog, Magdalena Frackowiak is often seen sporting roomy, cozy sweaters with either turtlenecks or off-the-shoulder necklines, dipped in monochrome and striped colors accordingly. One of the sweaters is so long, Magdalena Frackowiak used it as a minidress while pairing it with knee-length socks, making a combination we bet will appeal to many of you.
Aside from pullovers and sweaters, Free People also focused on oversized cardigans, which really are the best option whether you are going for a super edgy or more casual look. Most of them also got a shimmery refinement, which will end up being particularly helpful if you are trapped between two different parties and have no time to choose two different outfits.
The cardigans and relaxed ponchos also introduce us to the Free People winter 2016 collection’s most party-ready staples, as the cardigans are the ones that got covered with sequined patterns the most. Of course, Magdalena Frackowiak showcases them effortlessly, even when paired with contrasting sequined tops.
As for the other shabby-chic essentials, Free People mainly focused on the Seventies, treating us to a dream array of bell-bottom denims with patchwork appliqués, denim overalls and floaty palazzo pants. For those who cannot wait to embrace a more Nineties-inspired look just in time for the colder months, Free People opted for cozy utility pants, ripped jeans and loungwear-inspired jumpsuits.
As for those who are looking for It accessories to play with or pack as Christmas gifts, the brand dazzle us with warm beanies, socks and super long scarves aplenty. The overall price tags range from circa $16 for a pair of socks to $420 for a rugged leather jacket, which makes the collection quite affordable too!
