Bold ButtonsWednesday, 10 November 2010 by Ashley Turowsky
This season buttons are back! Buttons have taken the limelight back from the traditional zipper. This trend was seen all over the A/W 10 catwalk, from double-breasted Oscar de la Renta, military Burberry, and oversized Louis Vuitton.
Look for brass buttons worth a salute. Choose navy or red, and keep it simple with a single oversized button placed beneath the collar. Burberry Prorsum's indigo wool-blend fisherman coat with gold button fastening is a luxurious way to work the season's button trend. Recreate the runway look with thigh-high boots and black accessories for a contemporary color combination.
Try ALICE by Temperley's navy silk dress is an ultra-feminine way to work this season's military trend. Match your accessories to the gold-tone buttons and simply add ankle boots and a tote for stylish weekends in the city.
Want buttons elsewhere? Try the sides of trousers, or even a pair of boots. Try these Christian Louboutin buttoned boots. The brown leather buttoned knee-high boots are the chicest way to work this season's military trend. Or incorporate a bolt of blue into your wardrobe with Christian Louboutin's navy wool-flannel buttoned boots. Pair these military-inspired heels with skinny pants and a crisp white shirt for a super-chic workwear ensemble.
