Fashion is always in the details– never more so than this fall when the emphasis is on classic, streamlined style.
And one of the biggest details right now is the zipper. It was inevitable considering the hugeness of the 80s fashion revival, but zippers are everywhere. Functional zippers are being emphasized with contrasting hardware or seaming, and designers are adding extra ones as pure embellishment as well.
The most on-trend way to wear this look is in a zipper dress. If you’re looking for a more understated approach, try a handbag or shoes.
