The main difference of this season from the previous ones is the obvious passion of designers for historicism. Camouflage patterns, cargo pants, sand color and khakis, which have already become customary, are confidently replaced in the autumn-winter season by noble dark blue, burgundy and black, epaulettes, cockades and stripes. The main outerwear is now double-breasted, in the manner of greatcoats and pea jackets, or resembling hussar uniforms. Ascetic cut, as a rule, is compensated by rich gold embroidery, including in the form of orders. Accessories also try to match and borrow options from the dress military uniform of the 19th century. To avoid overly theatricality, any such items should be worn separately. Here, as always, the principles of moderation and opposition work: jeans or cashmere sweatpants paired with a simple turtleneck are suitable for an overcoat,and for the hussar jacket - a flying dress with a voluminous skirt and ankle boots.
