The British… have you noticed how they do everything so well? Their movies are deep, their music is classic, their capital is soaked in culture… the British just do everything too well. The same thing applies to their fashion, of course, so when it comes to deciding what to wear, trust your day to Next. British high-street retailer Next has finally presented its essentials for this fall. The beautiful Cameron Russel is the main face of the latest Next fall 2015 lookbook and she looks equally stunning without a flirty smile on. This enchanting beauty is posing with a new kind of confidence, which boasts about her comfort and the warm fuzzy feeling of a nice sweater.
The collection is not sexy, it’s classy; all is in Next’s traditions. Don’t look for anything out of ordinary here; it’s not trying to impress you or take you to the competition final of Miss Your-City. You can always find the same outfit in the store. The lineup is comprised of clothing to be worn late fall, so we have around 2 months to empty down their shelves. One of our absolute favorites? The fitted black blazer with hot orange elements on the collar! That blazer was made to be worn by the most sophisticated women out there. The knitted sweater and loose pants are screaming an almost unacceptable comfort. Whether it’s the coats or the see-through chiffon shirt, it’s trying to reach out the humble in you.
As for the color palette, Next has used some of the softest tones of black, white, brown, and red. The designs are minimalistic, without any patterns or unnecessary symbolism. Some geometric lines have been introduced due to their latest trend and intrusion into the fashion world. These are sweaters that will hug you as you put them on. We all need “something” to give us a hug, when “someone” has failed.
One of the reasons I might be bothered if I worked at Next is the repetition of this style over the past few years. Yes, Next, you know we like it, but that doesn’t mean you have to serve us re-cooked looks again. Despite my urge for new looks, these are magic-garments. Nobody would guess your destination in this clothing. You could be going to work, a business meeting, lunch or just shopping for a new outfit. That’s the beauty of this style; it looks so predictable but the way women use those garments is above all mystery-solvers’ intellect level.
So, get ready to see some of these looks in the streets of London, as something tells me these wearable pieces will find their way to homes of the shopping army. Hug your sweater and wait for Next’s fall 2015 collection.
