7 Fashion Trends to Embrace this Autumn/Winter Season
As summer comes to an end and the weather turns cooler, many of us will be thinking about how to transition our wardrobe to a new season of fashion trends. Rather than reaching for a bobbled, musty old sweater, why not embrace a more chic and ‘put together’ wardrobe this autumn and invest in some classic pieces?
Here are some of our favourite upcoming clothing trends…
Lockdown saw many of us working from home or with our jobs put on hold. The extra time on the sofa saw us reaching for casual, cosy clothing, a trend set to continue into colder weather. Investing in the right pieces will mean that you’re comfortable and relaxed, but you’ll look chic and put together while doing it – even on a Zoom call!
This year’s autumnal colour palette is warm and earthy. Expect rich brown tones, rustic oranges and mustard yellows mixed in with classic black and cream. Block colour is back in a big way, so break up your outfit with different textures instead of patterns, from chunky knitwear to maxi skirts.
This season’s must-have jacket style is beautifully tailored and belted at the waist. Mix it up by swapping out the matching belt with a contrasting colour or material to make your look truly unique. This ultra-sophisticated look can be dressed up with a skirt and heels for the office, or down with jeans and boots for the weekend.
Animal print has been back in a big way for a few years now, with this summer seeing plenty of zebra and leopard patterns. Keeping with our warm-toned theme for autumn, tiger print is set to return to fashion stores. From bodycon party dresses to printed ankle boots, there’s a way for everyone and anyone to add tiger to their look, no matter their style.
Capes were big on the runways earlier this year. From cropped tartan numbers to long and sweeping black leather, you can channel your own style while keeping warm and dry. In the cooler months our outerwear is often all that people see us in, so it may as well make a statement.
In addition to warm and cosy earth-tones, cool lilac is also set to make an appearance for fall. Try pairing a flowing lilac blouse with a red pleather skirt or for a bold contrasting look, or investing in pastel knitwear to pair with cream denim.
Often a staple of an autumn-winter wardrobe, this year we’ll see knee-high boots in colourful tones of faux leather, with thick soles. Whether you’re out on a crisp country walk or splashing through puddles in the city, a good pair of boots is a practical and versatile item to add to your wardrobe.
Which of these trends will you be embracing this season? Why not mix things up and choose something you wouldn’t usually go for. Getting out of your comfort zone can really help you find your own personal style!
