Christmas in July with Armani Exchange

July 26, 2011 • Fashion, Holiday, Trends, Yahoo

I was lucky to get a peek at the Armani Exchange Holiday Collection this week. Loved it! I just wanted to take a minute to share my favorite juicy details on the line that I know you’ll be loving this winter season! Especially after this steamy summer… I’m looking forward to so many yummy winter must haves!

I love that they’re going to offer some cool slouchy sweatpants with a denim look and a slight drop crotch. So comfy and cozy… but with a bad girl edge and some motorcycle detailing.  I saw some cool sweatshirt mini dresses too. They’re will be several pairs of skinny jeans with some cool moto details as well. I can’t wait! Easily toss in a leather jacket and some platform booties, and you can dress them up at night.

 I’m also needing a few of the maxis they’re going to carry. Between cool Pleated leather maxi skirts and the clingy slate colored jersey dress with a killer cutout to the black accordion silk skirt… and the dreamy winter floral printed chiffon maxi dresses… I can’t wait to try a long floaty silhouette for a glam holiday party!

The jackets and coats were fabulous as well. I love the jackets with contrasting texture details. Some of my favorite details were the leathery sleeves on a denim jacket, a fur collar on a wool coat, and a long chunky cable knit sleeve on a wool coat with ¾ length sleeves. A mixing of textures is a must for every outfit, especially for winter. The rich combo of the leathers, wools, furs and knits is a smart and easy way to add in a touch of luxe by simply tossing on cozy layer over your favorite tee or chunky sweater.

The fabrics and textures used in the collection are going to be great! Plenty of great trendy statement pieces, metallic minis and glam party dresses as well as all the daytime pieces too with your chunky dusters, leather minis, shimmering featherweight knits and detailed denim you love. From day to night… they’ve got you covered. Check out these pics of my favorite looks from the upcoming holiday lookbook. . It’s already got me excited to start my winter wardrobe hunt!
