Donatella Versace, a chief designer at Versace, presented a minimalist fall 2016 ready-to-wear collection. The ‘Urban Glam’ collection aims to empower women and make them feel strong through fashion. “The contemporary woman, she wears a peacoat, she wears a dress with long sleeves. She can be seductive and strong,” Versace said.In the fall 2016 ready-to-wear collection, Versace focused on pencil skirts and long-sleeved dresses – luxurious pieces meant to be worn on an everyday basis. An athletic influence runs throughout the collection in jerseys and coats.
Drawing inspiration from this collection, I have paired a burgundy pencil skirt with a gray long-sleeved top. My outfit is my personal adaptation of Versace’s emphasis on classic everyday clothes. The combination of a pencil skirt and long-sleeved top is very feminine and classy. This pieces are timeless and always in style. I added a leather touch to my outfit with my go-to tote bag and accessorized it with a layered necklace.
I have also followed Versace’s athletic idea by wearing sneakers. However, the best thing about this outfit is that you can wear it with sneakers for an everyday-cool-girl look, and with high heels for a more elegant set. The most important lesson to take away from this Versace’s fall 2016 ready-to-wear collection is to remember that fashion is not only about clothes and trends. Fashion is about empowering you as a person and making you more confident with your personal style.
