Hope you are feeling healthy, happy and very stylish. Once again, I’m here with the items I love from Autumn & Winter trends 18 so excited as it’s a colourful one – yippee!! Lots of you have already been out on a trip so thank you for keeping me very busy this season already – feel the sunshine is inspiring you all to shop!
It’s a call from the wild this season, maybe it’s a sign that we need to save our animal kingdom, but animal prints are incredibly powerful – I love them anytime of the year so zebra, tiger, leopard, snake – stripes & spots are a must-have this season – Alice may I have my leopard fun fur back please! Head to toe is a must for the fashionistas out there.
CAPE OR BLANKET
This tried to make it big last season but didn’t seem to take off to the high it is now – it’s the must “cover up” this season so find a cosy cape or an oversized blanket wrap to just throw on.
Is it because the third serious of the Crown will be shown soon and we love our Queen? Tweed has gone trendy and I always love a heritage check in my life, its revamped with an edgy modern feel – love this one!
BROWN IS THE NEW BLACK
To all of you out there with a warm skin tone, and to my many clients I harp on to about buying brown when it’s in fashion, the colour brown is once again very strong again this season and it’s a chance for you to replenish those brown classics in your wardrobe and some exciting new pieces before it retires once again – grab it whilst you can.
There’s a heavy western influence so if rodeo girl fringing, tasselling and flannel shirts is your thing, grab your cowboy boots and enjoy this trend
Checks are here to stay, so be brave & try a full – length plaid dress or maybe just a tartan trim on a garment, there lots of fabulous checked trousers wide or slim cut, checks are once again a massive influence for Winter wear 18.
THE LEATHER DRESS
In my head, this is always an investment piece as its timeless and when you want to feel powerful but sexy there’s nothing quite pulls it off than a little WOW leather dress. Very big this season so there’s lots to choose from in many different price brackets – my advice is buying the best you can afford as it’s always a keeper!
ROUND UP OF THE OTHERS
Its very cool to be double coated, so yes coat over coat, or a jacket over a jacket is hot. I can’t cope with one coat on most of the time when I’m running around so ill be giving this one a miss. It seems 80’s cocktail hour clothing is again glamorous for your evening tipple, so massive shinny shoulders are in. Argyle sweaters are not grandad as they are the “IT” knitwear piece. Sparkle is super-sized, so sequins are kind of exaggerated – don’t know where I could wear those, but I’d love too! The perfect skirt length is still the ankle grazing midi – my uniform over summer and this season until its freezing. Floral is still massive and Boho looks for Winter are so fabulous. Vinyl, latex, plastic and patent infact anything glossy & waterproof is on trend, the PJ look for everyday is still hot – I do this one my own way by wearing the wide leg silk bottom with a cosy oversized knit. The boot of the moment has to be cowboy.
Like all of them the trick is to just take what you like and wear it your way!
