Vanessa Valera: Hi! I'm Vanessa Valera with WatchMojo and if you want to look hot, we are going to tell you everything you need to look great from head to toe. We are join today by the Manager of Public Relations of Winners, Shannon Johnson.
Shannon Johnson: The menswear influence, we're going to see actually in ladies wear. Very full trouser style pants, full leg, pinstripes, and you're going to see cuff on the hand. There are also some great pencil skirts which make it a little more feminine but you're going to get it in the pinstripe menswear fabric.
You are going to see higher waist in the skirts as well as pants, the waist lines are moving up. Accessories are key for any season and fall or winter is no exception. What you're going to see is, first of all you're going to see a lot of metallics. Metallic's really holding strong still, so whether it's gold or silver and then there is going to be some great prints of animal which we love, I mean look at this great bag, great to go with black or the chocolate browns, or the camos.
Okay, speaking of accessories, some of the key trends that you're going to see is patent leather. So for example, in the black, if in shoes as well as hand bags, but you're going to see them in toned down versions from black to forest green, to burgundy.
In terms of shoes and footwear, one of the biggest stories is the booty. So you're going to see ankle boots in different, from round toe to pointy toe but really that's kind of a key signature item for the season and then belts. Belts are really important because there is definitely an emphasis on the waist this season. So you're going to be looking for interesting belts, this great cutout belt, of course leathers are always important with big buckles etcetera.
The bigger story is I think is volume. A great example of this is this jacket. You are seeing that full billowy bottom, has a swing shapes. You are going to see a lot of bigger shapes.
Vanessa Valera: And throughout that, I'd remember that you must have those four key items. Men inspired designs, metallic colors, animal prints and a lot of volume in that closet.
