Shopping - Fashion Trends

Metallic, monochrome, patterns and peplum- plus white after Labor Day! Before you hit The Magnificent Mile, check out this Winter’s featured looks (courtesy of Water Tower Place) to make sure your wardrobe is prepped with the latest trends.


  • Boulevard-Ponte-Peplum-Top

    A Pop of Peplum

    Peplum isn’t new to the fashion scene this season, but it’s becoming a classic go-to choice. The shape cinches at the waist, highlighting the figure, and adds instant volume and style to some of the most basic tops and dresses.

    Top available at Ann Taylor, Water Tower Place (835 N. Michigan Avenue).

  • Winter White

    Winter White

    Gone are the days of no white after Labor Day. Trade your bright summer whites for wintry wools. Go glam with an all-white dress or pull together a cozy sweater with chic pants for an easy and effortless monochromatic outfit.

    Dress available at White House Black Market, Water Tower Place (835 N. Michigan Avenue). 

  • Full Skirt

    Full Skirt

    A full skirt is anything but old-fashioned this season. The figure-flattering 50’s silhouette gives off a glamorous and ladylike vibe that can be dressed up or down. Pair with a button-down for a relaxed look or a silk blouse for a night on the town.

    Skirt available at Francesca’s Collection, Water Tower Place (835 N. Michigan Avenue).

  • Mad for Plaid

    Mad for Plaid

    Check, plaid, and tartan – it’s all traditional and a true winter staple. From prim and proper to a laid back look, it’s a versatile and classic pattern for men and women.

    Top available at Banana Republic, Water Tower Place (835 N. Michigan Avenue).

  • Metallic-Must-Haves

    Metallic Must-Haves

    The New Year is looking bright with fun frocks in reflective metallic fabrics and rich jewel-toned colors. From dresses to coated jeans, a modern metallic shine is perfect for seasonal soirees. For a more subtle look, experiment with shoes and accessories – like this handbag.

    Handbag available at Henri Bendel, Water Tower Place (835 N. Michigan Avenue)
