Been doing my homework of reading magazines and websites, and watching strangers on the street… here’s my low down of the latest trends you’ll be spotting around town… and which are the easiest to include in your wardrobe updates! Best of all, there’s plenty of ideas to play about and have fun with!
Denim skirts and shirts
You’ll spot this summer’s denim skirt teamed with tights and a chunky knit jumper for cosy Chic. Denim shirts are also back. Perfect under a jumper or with chinos.
Oversized cardigans and jumpers
Oversized cardigans and jumpers are in. Whether it’s long and slouchy, chunky and thick, or a huge blanket. They can make a simple pair of jeans, a skirt or a dress autumn ready. Oversized slouchy style instantly updates that summer metallic maxi skirt, or Aztec mini teamed with a pair of converse or ankle boots.
On the catwalk
Oversized has been spotted on the runways of Johanna Ortiz, Victoria Beckham, Stella McCartney, Temperley, Eudon Choi, and Brunello Cucinelli.
Opulent Floral was noted on the models from Roberto Cavalli, Christian Dior, Gucci, Erdem, and D&G.
Red was a hit with Fendi, Max Mara, and Victoria Beckham.
Plaid was checked out on the catwalks of Stella McCartney, Mulberry and Daks.
Metallics shimmered on the runways of Isabel Marant, Christopher Kane and Temperley.
The designers have utilised more than one key trend in their pieces to highlight how the pieces can be worn in more than one way or take you from day to night. I love how these key trends can be mixed with items already in your wardrobe for a quick update rather than needing an entirely new collection of clothing! These trends allow you to be as daring or a coy as you wish!
Lots of Love
