Jill Stuart Fall/Winter 2016-2017 RTW – NYFW

Oh, we are head over heels in love with the Jill Stuart fall/winter 2016-2017 ready-to-wear line newly presented on the New York Fashion Week runway and it is the colors, and sometimes lack thereof, that has us so enthralled. Really, it is the combination of gorgeous tailoring, use of lots of black and burgundy, and a good lot of lilac in the mix. The styles are not unanimous really, ranging in the type of woman they target, though the thirty-seven piece long collection has looks as unique from one another as possible.

While some looks focus on transparencies, nipples clearly seen through the fabrics, others are all about the long and lean silhouette. There are ruffles to be found and layers here and there, particularly on the skirts and dresses, with a major focus on shoulders throughout. We see exaggerated shoulders and open ones, intriguing strap combinations and asymmetrical cuts, shoulder cutouts on long sleeves and coverage with simple and thin straps. We have it all. There is even a dress without straps at all, though it is the anomaly within the collection. Another anomaly falls in the single open midriff outfit in a dark, dark blue.

When considering out very favorites, the lilac pieces certainly are first to jump to attention, the gorgeous slip of a dancer’s dress with the asymmetrical hem first and foremost on our list, followed by the lacy look that involved a black, lilac and white flowery approach. The ruffles head sideways, covering one shoulder and finishing off beneath the other, double and triple layers to the skirts.

Scarlet stockings seems to be the rage here as well, worn with interesting strappy sandals, or simply mules adorning fishnet stocking clad feet. Perhaps one of the sexier looks here is the black little dress that includes a ruffled neckline that shows off a deep V, puffy sleeves, a scrunched midriff complete with a bow and a button down skirt made to add width to the hips. That is definitely a look you can pull off for the next party you shall be attending.

Half boots, strappy sandals, silver studded belts and scarlet mules or ankle strapped shoes are the least of it. Jill Stuart has given us quite the wardrobe to choose from and it would be rather rude of us not to indulge in the fanfare of grand ideas. Of course, we have also seen some better designs by the label, but you cannot deny that for those looking for a darker set of clothes, the line-up is superb in its offerings.

From suedes to velvets, we are in love with the Jill Stuart fall 2016 line and between the casual and the dressy, the in-between seems to be fully covered as well, giving us a sense of what to wear to a not-so-formal event. Then again, we might want to invest in some of the more futuristic appearing outfits for they might be the trend of the near future indeed.
