The Hugo Boss pre-fall 2015 collection has prepared a seriously stylish transitional season for independent bossy beauties, who now how to add character to their simplistic and perfectly polished elegant looks, preferring the classic reserved monochrome style over the absolute power of bright shades. Jason Wu has opted for certain masculine elements, polishing them and adding so much femininity to his elegant designs, quite reminiscent of luxury office wear. Clean lines and sharp shapes have never looked this chic before and Wu certainly knows how to satisfy the style needs of the Boss women. “I like structure, and I’m very good with organization. I’m not good at mess. A German company is quite structured, so I’m quite good at that,” he said in an interview with Style.com, explaining the idea behind these show-stopping garments.
Sticking to a reserved color palette consisting of blacks, whites, grays and emerald greens, Wu injected drama to his designs using bold houndtooth motifs and subtle windowpane checks, which looked so harmonious in combination with the Sixties shapes. This is exactly how the collection opens, illustrating a duo of a houndstooth patterned cotton tweed above-the-knee skirt and zip-up jacket using tones of green, black and white. Next we see the same colors, materials and patterns on a sleeveless sharp A-line dress accentuated with a black leather belt on the waist and an above-the-knee skirt teamed with a Sixties-inspired slim-fitting windowpane top in black with green accents.
However, prints aren’t the focus of the Boss pre-fall 2015 collection, since it’s here that they give way to plain dark color schemes, showing a beautiful play with mannish vibes and strong tailoring. The black skirt suit worn with a white turtleneck is the ideal thing business women need to amp up their office wardrobes, while the following look featuring cropped tailored black pants and an elongated tunic-like white cotton shirt worn under a crisp white knitted sweater with motifs of houndstooth is for creating more personality-filled formal looks.
Another interesting way of wearing his new elongated white shirt is pairing it with a cropped tuxedo jacket and slim-fit tailored trousers. A pair of elegant heeled shoes and a minimalist black clutch will finish off this timeless look just perfectly. Also powerful are the pants suits in simple white or windowpane gray designs, in case of which the blazer is worn on a bare skin showing off the deep neckline, which makes these pieces more evening ready rather than for the office wear. V-neck is present only in one more look – the white below-the-knee belted dress that can be donned for attending a multiple of events. Of the evening-appropriate designs we should also mention the deep V-back black gown with a lovely ruffled opening.
Leather has also been used here, coming in the emerald green shade and being the main material for a minimalist above-the-knee sleeveless dress worn with a black leather belt and a high-waisted skirt teamed with a form-fitting black turtleneck. In terms of the accessorizing options, the looks were perfected with Chelsea boots, cuff-link inspired belts and classy clutches. Minimal makeup and center-part sleek updos give the exact proportion of elegance to these polished looks.
