There’s just something about Autumn and Winter that makes fashion really stand out (and I have to admit its my favourite clothing season. No more worrying about blotchy fake tan stripes and wobbly bits! But all about beautiful layering, cosy knits and statement clothes); with everything from bold colours, deeper shades, layers, fierce dressing, mismatch patterning to the perfect winter coat.
We are loving the bold, vibrant 60s mod prints spotted on the Valentino catwalk with this striking winter coat with clashing colours like pink and red. The mismatch prints and bold colours are set to be bang on trend for Autumn and Winter. After all – just because Summer’s officially over, it doesn’t mean we can’t inject some fun and colour into our winter wardrobes! With blue set to be a huge Autumn/Winter trend for 2014, we fell head over heels in love with this blue ensemble from Topshop. Blue is the perfect option for those who want to liven up the dark hues of your typical Winter wardrobe without falling too far from your fashion comfort zone. Keep it simple and chic with beautiful blues that will take you from summer to Autumn in a flash.
Statement coats are also set to be big news, and my personal fave is this Studded leather and fur ‘Nordic Nights’ jacket from Free People.com – sexy, fun and high fashion –sure to get you lots of attention.
Of course, we couldn’t talk about Autumn and Winter trends we are loving without paying some attention to the rather bizarre but awesome trend of Pop art and Fast food! Designers like Moschino showcased a fast food themed handbag that adds fun and colour into any outfit whilst Anya Hindmarch showcased her amazing crisp packet bag that definitely caught the crowd’s eye. If you’re looking for fun, eclectic and quirky accessories then why not get on the pop art and fast food fashion trend – just add some colour accessories or jewellery to finish off and you’re good to go! After all, fashion is all about having fun – even in the dreary months of Autumn and Winter!
And it wouldn’t be Autumn/Winter without a wonderful palette of dark hues and deep shades to transform your seasonal wardrobe. Dark Romance is set to be a prominent trend for this Autumn/Winter and we love it! The ethereal, dark and mysterious colour palette leads to some killer outfits that can truly make a statement this season. Pairing these dark berry, blue and black shades with simple and chic jewellery and accessories is the perfect way to get yourself Autumn ready - in particular our 'Star-crossed lovers' collection which features interlocking rings and jewellery, all inspired from dark romantic literature lovers like Romeo & Juliet and Wuthering Height's Heathcliff and Cathy, check out our collection here for some inspiration
