Fashion expert Anne-Laure Couplet of Tati shares her Winter style tips
Time Out Bahrain staff
What female trends are you seeing popping up through autumn/winter this year? The most important trends for Tati this winter is the pastel look. The key pieces are light and loose knitwear to superpose on soft trousers. In term of colours, we play on light pink, pale blue and off white. Other inspiration for women is ‘Back to Seventies’. The fur and leopard-printed coats have been making their stylish waves in fashion. They can make any look and outfit seem chic and sophisticated, rich and glam while being urban and unpretentious.
Floral prints look fantastic with black and red checks, and if you feel like adding a colour then stick to just one, as to not overcrowd the look. For an evening look or more adventurous styles go for heels, studs, black tights, dresses and skirts.
How about for the men? The most important trend for our men’s department is ‘Dandy nomad’ with the notion of travel and style. The adventurous, free-spirited feeling that we get from heading somewhere previously undiscovered is something many of us would like to channel through the clothes we wear.
From long-sleeved sweaters to soft cotton chinos, easy-to-wear staples are ideal for staying comfortable during long flights or drives.
The key piece of this story is parka to superpose on the chino pants with modern colours like camel, beige and softer brown.
What fashion staples should ladies and gents have through the festive season? I think women should have the black dress with the new knee length and wear it together with a leather jacket.
For gents, the must-have is the blazer jackets to wear with jeans.
How should men go about accessorising this season? This season men should wear shiny derby shoes with roll up pants for a smart look.
What trends can shoppers find in the Tati collections now? In December, the shoppers can find an evening collection. The key product is the dress with details of lace-sequins. Tati has recently opened in Bahrain at Bahrain City Centre, Seef District. Visit www.tati.fr.
