It’s officially autumn and, as always, we’ve been keeping an eye on the runways for the up and coming trends of the season. We wanted to share the standout autumn trends we are getting a little bit excited about as the weather cools.
Big Bold Animal Prints and Faux Furs
This is the season for donning full-length faux fur coats and dressing head to toe in bold animal prints. The whole animal world is represented with faux fur and animal prints of every variation; tiger, cheetah, bear, snake prints and more. We love that these faux fur coats haven’t hurt a fly and that they will ensure we are warm, cosy and stylish all winter long.
Modest or not, we do love the new season’s trend towards longer hemlines and higher necklines. This autumn we will be layering up to keep warm in style. We especially love the Victorian style collars, especially when paired with the more tailored style of this modest trend.
Let it Shine
This season is all about fabrics with a glossy finish and a high shine. Designers have incorporated every kind of high gloss fabric in their autumn lines. High shine latex, vinyl and plastic all come out to play in this season’s coats, jackets, pants and boots.
This autumn it is time for the classic heritage style tweed to make a comeback. Tweed skirts, over-sized tweed coats and wide-leg tweed pants keeping us warm this season, and we couldn’t be happier about it. Keep it classic with the original blues and greys or brighten up with plaids, tartans and checks in vibrant reds, oranges and yellows. This versatile trend is the easiest way to add a little bit of colour and classic cool to your wardrobe this season.
Wild West Style
If classic plaids are not your style, the Wild West trend might get you a little more excited. Designers have gone all whimsical Wild West with cowboy boots paired with flowing prairie dresses. We think this style is perfect for those autumn days before the winter really sets in.
Brown is the New Black
This autumn you have permission to wear head to toe brown. Mixed shades of brown, from tan to glossy dark chocolate are paired with crisp white or cream for classic suits and outfits that promise to overtake the blacks and greys as your main wardrobe staple. This is chocolate indulgence without the calories.
Check and Checked for Men
We haven’t forgotten about the trends for men this autumn. There are a few upcoming styles that we are really on board with and the classic hounds-tooth revival is one we love. Tailored suits and blazers in this classic fabric are perfect for these cooler months.
Classically Tailored Menswear
This autumn the trend brings out the more impeccably dressed man in an artisanal jacket and perfectly fitted pants. Perfect for the man who can wear a classically tailored suit with an air of nonchalance. This is a trend we could all fall in love with.
Every boy wants to be a Cowboy
The casual cowboy Western look also trends big for men this season. And, dare we say it, denim on denim never looked so good. Well-cut darker shade jeans paired with classic light denim shirts are making us swoon for this modern cowboy look.
90s Throwbacks can go back
To finish our round up of trends, we felt the need to add the one trend we think needs to go back to wherever it came from. In our opinion, this season’s 90’s sportswear revival can stay in the locker room. We just do not love the look of those shiny nylon tracksuits paired with white sneakers and retro styling this season.
Luckily, we have enough fantastic trends that we do love to keep us all warm, cosy and stylish in the coming cooler months.
