Fall 2016 Trends - Patent Leather
Patent leather all over - could be a trend considered a tiny bit risqué. I mean, mention patent leather knee-high boots to me and the first image that comes to my mind is Julia Roberts strolling the streets in that opening scene of Pretty Woman. But this fall, patent leather comes with quite a different approach. Don't get me wrong, it is still very seductive and eye-catching but also surprisingly sophisticated. Take for example that rich burgundy patent leather duster coat that grazed Valentino Ready-to-Wear Fall 2016 runway (ok, I will be honest that is my favorite patent leather appearance on the RTW Fall 2016 runway). There is nothing discreet about it, but it screams sophistication and confidence, rather than promiscuity. If you feel like over-the-knee patent finish boots - that's great; and there is a lovely pair by the brand Daisy Street (see shopping section below), but I personally will be hunting for a patent leather coat on high street. Here are some of my favorite patent finish looks that appeared on RTW Fall 2016 runways.

At the moment the selection for patent leather pieces on high-street is still sparse, but mark my words, it will be a trend that will not hide, and you will see more and more of it in next months to come. And if patience is not your strong suit here are some great options you can go for right now...
