Fall fashion is the best fashion. As Rachel Zoe puts it, “I love fall fashion week because it means lots of layering, long sweaters and vintage coats.” In this year’s Hermès show, every single look was loose-fitting and oversized. From long flowing skirts to oversized sweaters, Hermès created not only looks that seemed comfortable for the everyday person, but also looks that seemed effortlessly sexy.
As a college student who spends way too many nights up past one a.m., I can’t help but reach for loose-fitting clothes in the morning. The thought of tight-fitting, restricted clothing makes me feel uncomfortable even thinking of it. Don’t get me wrong. There are days when I want to be Kim Kardashian in her mind-bogglingly tight Balmain outfits, however, most of the time, I lean towards Kylie Jenner’s loose, yet stylish look. Not only is it comfortable, it also has a grunge look that I’m attracted to. For these reasons, the Hermès show really caught my eye this year. The oversized jackets in particular drew me in. For a while now, I’ve had a menswear-inspired jacket that I wasn’t sure how to wear properly. Sure I could wear it with a pair of tight-fitting jeans, but it wasn’t until the Hermès show that I realized how I could really create a look with this jacket.
Today, I went for a completely lose-fitting look to really accentuate the menswear-inspired jacket. I wore destroyed boyfriend jeans, along with a turtleneck poncho sweater, and the jacket on top. To complete the look, I wore combat boots to match the manly vibe of the boyfriend jeans and jacket.
This fall 2014 show taught me that you don’t have to wear the tightest clothes that hug all your curves to look sexy. As a result, I’m staying comfortable all day, yet still rocking those runway looks.
