Colder days and longer nights draw near, which means dragging out your coats and woolly jumpers from the back of the wardrobe. But which ones are going to be on trend this season? We’ve scoured the fashion pages and the catwalks to see what’s going to put you at the front of the style curve!
Bright colours abound this year, helping to bring a bit of joy into the general grimness. Red and orange are the two big players, and the best way to wear either is all at once. For the more tentative fashionista, a pop of colour amidst darker, neutral tones is another option.
Yep, you heard correctly…The fabric of kings, corduroy has drifted in and out of fashion for years, and this season you can expect it to hit in a big way. Grab yourself an entire suit made from it (if you’re brave enough), or pair corduroy trousers to wear with knitwear or a casual shirt. Navy blue and olive seem to be the colours of choice.
Crafty, artsy dresses have been gliding all over the catwalks this year, so expect to see plenty of versions popping up on the high street. Go for something with plenty of colour, pattern, texture – basically anything that looks like you made it yourself from 12 other dresses.
This trend has been gathering pace for a while, but expect more than ever this season. There’ll be slogans on t-shirts, bags, shoes, and basically anything with space for an inspirational word or phrase.
Ladies - if you only invest in one area for this autumn/winter season, go for a pair of jewelled, luxurious shoes. They can be paired with any casual outfit to brighten up your look, or added to an evening outfit for extra sparkle and decadence. Who doesn’t love a bit of sparkle, right?
The perfect trend for when it gets cold, the roll-neck jumper is back on the high street. Go for something in camel (also a trend) or grey for easy matching, and stick to lighter fabrics for work looks. You can chunk it up for the weekends.
