Michael Kors Gives Women Glamour They Can Really Wear
Wearable glamour is at the core of every single one of Michael Kors's Autumn 2017 looks, even the gilded and sequinned cocktail dresses. What the designer describes as "sensual strength" in the show notes manifests in draped dresses and skirts finished with slits, slashes, and tinges of gold and silver. Knits, too, are made sexier with fits that cling to all the right places, while the materials — animal motifs, grommet studding, paillettes, and luxe outerwear — combine to make everything feel, well, very expensive without trying too hard.
That's the beauty of Kors. It's quietly seductive clothes that turn heads but don't brag. They're too elegant for that. Neutrals, camel coats, rich leather trenches . . . maybe a burgundy fur or a fringed dress (as worn by Kendall Jenner) for a night out. It's quintessentially Kors's brand of American sportswear, designed with the chic urbanite in mind — the woman who's busy doing things and needs to look fabulous while doing them.
