Autumn/winter is my favourite time of year. I know, the summer nights are longer and we all love the sunshine but..
oh my god, I love the cold. I love cosy evenings on the sofa with my husband. I love not shaving my legs EVERY SINGLE DAMN DAY, because ‘hello tights’. I love crunchy leaves, Halloween, fairy lights, fireworks, Christmas. I love ALL of it.
But most of all, and I know you style lovers came here for it, I love autumn/winter fashion. Big coats, layering, jumpers, leather & boots. And this year, I’m happier than ever.
These are some of MY favourite trends for AW18, there are many more but these are the trends that I’ll be working into my wardrobe this season.
1. Animal Print
Animal prints dominated the runway at almost every show for the season. From classic leopard print all the way to snake and crocodile print. Animal is EVERYWHERE. Whether you’re wearing it neutral or going bold like Tom Ford’s statement leopard print.
Here are some of my top picks from the high street.
2. Scarf print
This trend was one that took some time for me to warm up to. There’s always been something about the Versace chain print silk scarves that I both adored and detested, I couldn’t tell you why. But I always have. So when I saw models walking down the runways in these garish silk scarf prints, I really didn’t know what to think. Now this is the part where I eat my words, months down the line I’m kind of a convert. (Insert see no-evil monkey emoji)
My top picks from the high street.
3. 70’s brown
Some are calling it rust, others are calling it biscuit. Whatever it is, it’s 70’s, retro and I am LOVING it. This trend is giving me all of the ‘girl boss’ feels. (SIDE NOTE: if you haven’t seen it, you NEED to). This is a trend that is so easy to work into your wardrobe, grab a jumper in this colour and throw it on to work the seasons trend.
Top picks from the high street.
4. Checks & tartan
Checks is a trend that I feel like is always around, it’s almost a classic but this year it’s had a sassy little update, in the form of smart tailoring married with fun, clashing colours. Take balenciaga, Versace & Stella McCartney. Checks are another trend that can be worked into any wardrobe, grab a checked blazer and throw it over jeans & a tee. Done. Give me all of the clueless vibes, they’re life.
5. Cowboy boots
Grab your horse gals because seriously, COWBOY BOOTS ARE A THING. I know, is it early 2000? What even are Kardashian’s? It’s not.. Dilemma isn’t still at the top of the charts and your tamagotchi is well gone hun. (Sorry, I know it hurts). Cowboy boots graced shows like Fendi in so many cute colour ways & Céline have made the MOST amazing cowboy style ankle boots which have already been a massive hit with all of the major fashionistas.
My Top Picks.
