Under creative director Lisa Kulson, Theory
has taken progressive steps, grooming Theory into the wardrobe of choice for
urban essentials. This is by no means an overstatement. From workwear dresses
to casual separates, Theory has got them all, and in an easy-to-wear colour
palette to boot.
For Pre-fall 2016, Theory served up a
decidedly monochrome canvas of effortless garments that will quite easily fit
into your current desk-to-dinner or dinner-to-weekend wardrobe. These are
garments that will add on and elevate, and at the same time diversify your
Classically cut little black dresses lead
the way. The favourite silhouette is without sleeves and gently hugs the upper
torso while draping fluidly against the lower half of your body.
Culottes made appearances again. Don’t we
all just love them? They obscure our flaws, provide generous legroom, and
basically go with just about everything – not to mention that an oversized
silhouette screams instant chic. Theory has certainly got the memo.
What surprised us most this season is the
inclusion of a sizable amount of knitwear. Knits appeared in essentially
everything. Say yes to crease-free days. And aren’t they just perfect for
cooler days in the office?
While you’re looking to update your black
and white collection with Theory this season, the introduction of more colours
– like red oak – this Fall means Theory is gearing up for another step forward.
Trust us on this. It’s going to be good.
