I think we can definitely say that it’s winter now, as much as it pains me.
I love love love Spring/Summer fashion looks and usually get bored and uninspired by A/W. I think it’s down to the limitation of warm clothes, having to layer up, and also just the lack of colour – WHY IS EVERYTHING SO DARK AND BORING?
That being said, I have to wear something, so these are the trends I can get behind this Autumn/Winter.
Checks I feel like checks have been on trend for the last 5-6 seasons, I’m definitely not complaining at all. As you will come to realise, I am majorly obsessed with the movie Clueless! Throughout the whole film the protagonist Cher is adorned in checked ensembles that make me weak at the knees. One of my favourite outfits, other than the infamous yellow checked skirt suit, is this little number:
So I will definitely be bringing outfits like this to life. Also, the best part about check is that they’re usually 100% office appropriate, meaning you don’t have to save your killer outfits for the weekend.
Velvet I know some people who absolutely hate the texture of velvet so I’m sorry if this makes you feel a bit funny inside, but I adore it. Velvet says luxury to me, I think it’s one of the most luxurious materials you can wear in the winter – considering most of A/W fashion is just blahhh.
I know it’s early, but I am definitely thinking a red velvet dress for Christmas day will be perfect.
Midnight Hour According to Marie Claire, this the name of an actual trend…Basically galaxy inspired clothing that has been sent down from heaven almost. Stars, moons, planets, sequins, glitter and so much more. McQueen is obviously the one who killed this trend on the catwalk:
Everything about this trend says ‘I need a night out’, hopefully the high-street get on board this trend so I can live out a McQueen-like fantasy involving lots of Prosecco.
So even though A/W fashion isn’t the most diverse in colour and can be boring at times, these trends make up for it. It’s actually getting me quite excited for Christmas party season now, fingers crossed there will be plenty of occasions that involve dressing up like the night’s sky.
