Remember how positive everyone was in the way-back days of last Winter? The primaries were fantastically entertaining and many of us were anticipating the first female president. Fashion designers were clearly the most excited and were looking to celebrate the moment by showcasing strong women in pantsuits.
The political outcome was not the most desirable to some designers but the powerful female takes the spotlight all over this season's runways. Altuzarra showed models wearing velvet suits in fiery red. Victoria Beckham, who has earned a reputation for her powerful female style, showed various pantsuit suiltutes that ranged from slouchy to tailored.
Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia debuted as the new creative directors of Oscar de la Renta and showed more pant options than we can ever recall seeing on the legendary designer's runway. Our favorite was a ultra-structured version in peony pink with an wide silver obi belt.
Pantsuits clearly have taken over the maxi skirt. We suggest you browse winter sale merchandise and try to snag this look before the novelty wears off.
