It’s goodbye to the pointy shoulders that have been one of the biggest trends over the past few years. This fall the silhouette becomes much more smooth. Especially in many jackets were seeing the rounded sleeves. Burberry, Loewe, Yves Saint Laurent and Jil Sanders showed some amazing examples of that.

At Stella McCartney the rounded shapes were everywhere in the collection, a stiffened golden dress being the most extravagant of all pieces.

At Chanel it were the shoulders that were more puffy than ever. Giambattista Valli, Lanvin, Mary Katrantzou and Jil Sander used the circle-shape in their skirts.

It might take a while before this trend is adapted by high street fashion stores, but if you wanna be one of the first: the oversized soft silhouette is the way to go!
