AS THE sun sets on summer, it’s a good excuse to take some time to revamp your wardrobe and bring in a few key pieces to see you through the autumn winter season.
The good news is that there are plenty of new looks to go for – from punk and plaid to pinks and pretty prints – so there’s something for every fashion lover.
Tartan is big this season and has featured heavily on catwalk collections from Saint Laurent and Mulberry to Givenchy and Versace and it’s something worth investing in. There’s everything from fun short kilts and tops to slim fit trousers and coats for you to select from. Pick out one or two key pieces or even try layering it up.
The look can work well with another key feature of this season – the Punked Up style. Picking up where plaid left off, punk stylings are revisiting our obsession for retro fashion, as exhibited by its recent Met Gala appearance. For those who hated seasons of endless 80s nostalgia, rejoice – we’re onto a tougher period!
So give it some grit and add patent, leather – real or fake – gauzy chiffon and spikes – or whatever feels slightly off.
Suits meanwhile are given a casual twist this season so try adding a jumper or prints for a look that’s both perfect for the office as well as after-hours fun.
Oversized Outerwear is in too as seen with Vivienne Westwood, Chanel and DKNY.
Think chunky oversized coats or big sweats and jumpers worn with pencil or mid skirts to achieve the look – who says fashion can’t be cosy!?
While colourwise pink ‘Is The New Black’, with the colour featuring heavily on everything from coats and accessories to dresses and skirts. For winter think dusty rose or berry.
Finally winter florals and high shine fabrics feature in a lot of collections from the catwalk down to the high street.
Florals have gone dark for winter – vivid blues and rich reds set against black and navy will see your wardrobe bloom throughout the winter months.
