Revolutionising Last Year’s Wardrobe For This Season
It’s finally time to dress with the autumn-winter trends in mind. But, what’s in style this season? And, how can we reuse our AW17 wardrobe for this season’s fashion? In this guide, we’ll cover what’s hot for men and women this autumn-winter, perfect if your shopping for yourself or buying for your other half!
Layering for the autumn-winter period is a necessity for women this season. If you’re bold enough, the best way to layer is with contrasting colour and textures. Dig out you metallic puffa jacket from last year and wear it over a fringed jumper.
It’s no secret that animal print was a huge player on this year’s runway — you may recall Isabel Marant debuting the classic snake pattern. The great thing about this style being in trend is that you can mix and match animal print and still create an outfit that looks well put together. Leopard print has rarely been out of the spotlight in recent years — why not pair your printed cami dress with snakeskin boots and a matching clutch?
You may be saving your most glitzy outfit for New Year’s Eve, but there’s no problem with wearing such style a little earlier. Paco Rabanne showed off their models in oversized silver sequins that brought some much-loved sparkle to the runway. Don’t wait until late December to bring your glitter dresses out of the wardrobe, embrace them in October and November too!
To keep warm during the colder months, why not treat yourself to an oversized knit? The great thing about this year’s trends though, is that you can pair your grandad knit with your summer dress and still look on-trend. Miu Miu showed off an outfit that was made up of a green floral midi dress and fluffy grey knit — no need to pack away your summer clothes just yet!
Looking back to last year, you may have rocked the suede and wool combination. And, it’s back this year. Giorgio Armani mixed up the textures further with a shearling, suede and leather jacket that looks smart yet cosy for the colder months.
However, there’s other looks that you may have to look even further back for. That’s because this year it’s all about throwing it back to the ’90s. You might’ve thought you’d seen the back of shell suits and full tracksuits, but they’re back with a vengeance. On the catwalk, Prada completed the look with branded bucket hats and lightweight waterproof jackets (ideal for autumn weather).
Leather jackets is one garment that never leaves our wardrobe. Instead of the shorter bomber style though, this season it’s all about oversized leather coats that can be paired with slim-leg jeans and winter boots. Fendi, Balenciaga and Paul Smith were all rocking the look during their AW18 shows this season.
Brown is one of the biggest colours this season — and it’s one autumnal tone we all have in our wardrobes. From brown men’s suits to oversized ponchos and shiny leather jackets, the brown colour palette is so versatile. If you don’t want to overdo this shade. You can keep it simple with brown accessories such as hats, scarves and shoes to get in with the trend.
Just like womenswear, layering has peaked for men too. It’s all about bringing together different garments in an effortlessly stylish sort of way. You might not have worn a V-neck in a few years. But bring it out this year and slip it on top of a roll-neck jumper for an on-trend outfit. Other ways to layer include pairing an open checked shirt (a print that was everywhere in AW17) with a graphic t-shirt and black skinny jeans.
