I’m not ashamed to admit I adore Autumn/Winter fashion much more than summer. All those cute layers, rich colours, scarves, gloves, gorgeous coats, I’m totally sold. So although it’s July, the shops are already starting to get their stock in for the next season and I’ve started to take a sneaky peek ahead to see what trends are hot for Autumn.
There seems to be three distinct trends for Autumn and I’m all over two out of three. First up and the most sumptuous and exciting is the Babouska theme. Think Russian folky styling, rich colours, layers and entricate prints with a Kate Bush vibe and you’re there! I adore dark, rich colours, lace and prints and picked out some beautiful pieces which I think will look really rich and autumnal.
Next up is Graphic which is all about sharp modern cuts in bold, bright colours. With cute jumpers and shirts in really eyecatching colours, I think it’s a really easy way to look dressy and on-trend with minimal fuss. The easiest way I’ll be channeling this vibe is with dark skinny jeans and a really bright shirt, sorted! And a bold coloured bag is always a must, I have far too many bags!
Finally the trend that I think I’ll let others do but will admire from afar is the grunge theme, most recently rocked by girls like Cara Deleveingne and Daisy Lowe. It’s all about relaxed looks with a serious 90′s vibe, all set off with feminine touches. So if you want to wear a pretty tea dress, stick a tartan shirt over it and some boots, or throw on a cool parka to update your look.
So girls, will you be rocking any of these trends this Autumn? Which is your favourite?
