You may have already noticed that there’s an abundance of reds and oranges on offer this season. The Pantone Color Institute believes that we’re going to see that continue, with a strong colour palate dominating the season. If you’re nervous about how such bold colours will look in your wardrobe, remember that you don’t need to commit to full garments. You can get a lot out of accessories too, especially a Fendi inspired scarf.
More Checks and Prints
Floral prints and other bold patterns have been in this year so far. Now we can expect to see checks moving to the forefront. Check trousers or a snappy blazer are must-have additions to your wardrobe. The AW2019 catwalks were full of bold yellows and reds and check patterns, and that is being reflected in the high street. Look for soft check patterns with brown, olive or mustard. Neon is in too.
If you’re a die hard fan of prints then you’ll be glad to know that animal print is still in and doesn’t look to be going anywhere. Brown, mustard and olive go well with the colour trends of the season and snakeskin (both jewelled and muted) is proving popular too. Look for mock-snakeskin boots in the style of Givenchy and Michael Kors, as well as bags, hair accessories and scarfs in similar styles. It’s easy to update your wardrobe with accessories so you can stay on-trend on a budget.
Go Vintage Yet Girly
Fairytale fashion is adorable at any time of the year, and timeless vintage garments are very much in demand. Ruffled skirts, puffed sleeves on your blouses, feathered dresses and super-feminine lace are all great options for your wardrobe. You can see examples of this if you look at the Burberry or Chanel catwalks, and the Prabal Gurang fashion shows featured pearl earrings and baroque jewellery with heart-shaped drops. These might be vintage but they’re very much wanted in the 21st century. You can tip your hat to this trend in a subtle way with pearl stud earrings, which will make a good addition to a jewellery box and still be wearable for season after season.
Be Bold With Your Belts and Knits
At this time of year, chunky jumpers and argyle knits are definitely in. Why worry about looking frumpy when you can hit the high street and enjoy a wide range of choices that are cosy, comfortable, and look great too.
You can accent those chunky jumpers with a nice waist-cinching belt so that you look your best and accentuate your figure even while warding off the cold. Those belts were big in the 70s and now they’re back. They’re super-versatile and will wrap around anything, whether that’s a smart blazer, a chunky coat, great knitwear or your favourite shirt. You can get a lovely feminine silhouette even when you’re dressed up like an Eskimo.
Make a Statement With Your Bag
Supersized statement bags are making a comeback, and that’s one fashion change that we don’t regret since these oversized bags are way more practical than those tiny totes that were so popular during the summer months. Choose from burgundy, metallic sheens, or one of those bold autumn colors. Alternatively, swap out the straps on a bag that you already have so that you can make your favourite bag suit any season and any style. A simple strap swap out will give an old bag a new lease of life and is a cost-effective update for this time of year.
