Fact: we're no longer at the end of the 19th century, time when women started going off to work and left aside skirts to give way to that one item we no longer can live without - trousers. Just as those, so many other wardrobe staples were ressurrecting and making appearances - and fans - on womenswear. The years have gone by, fights for women's rights multiplied and, even though they're not nowhere close to an end, mentality evolution and freedom of expression gained more and more ground - also in the closet. Fashion has always had an important part in society and nowadays is proof of that, even more so: designers, brands and runways are vehicles for conveying messages and manifest criticism, and a way to show new perspectives to the world. This spring shows the classics aren't what they used to be and comes up with looks that are totally open to new mentalities and challenges. Blazers, for instance, are used from XS to super-XL and can be paired with virtually everything. And everything meaning freedom of choice.
