Your New Autumn Winter Wardrobe
Tuesday, 23 September 2014
Don’t panic, we know that sounds like a lot of hard work, so we've done the fashion graft for you. Get your pen at the ready and follow our full run down on what’s on trend and more importantly what you should be shopping.
Before you fly back in a time machine and hunt through Twiggy’s wardrobe, take note. This season inspiration came from the sixties and designers like Saint Laurent and Louis Vuitton gave more of a nod to mod than actually recreating the whole look. So pick an item, like a pea coat or a sweet shift and wear the trend, but don’t over kill it.
Key item to buy: Knee high boots like the ones seen at Gucci.
Boring never felt so good and quite frankly there’s nothing dull about this trend, just perfectly formed and fitted clothing, that is sharply cut and really flattering. From collarless coats to straight lined skirts, collections at Boss and Miu Miu meant that office wear is now the coolest thing around.
Key item to buy: Grey tailored trousers.
Big, small, coloured and barely there. Linear patterns are having a moment. From dresses to duster coats the designers have gone criss cross crazy. We loved the looks at Richard Nicoll and Nicole Fahri, where muted blue, green and grey played a huge part.
Want to be ahead of the fash pack? Be daring and clash up your squares by wearing two different prints.
Key item to buy: An oversized checked coat.
Glitter and sparkle are no longer reserved for the dance floor, with metallic pieces now becoming fully-fledged members of the daytime crew.
Ralph Lauren made it look not just easy, but dreamy too. Follow his fashionable lead and pair your shimmering separates with classic white shirts, one colour midi skirts and simple knits. It’s all about creating a balance, because quite frankly no one wants to look like an astronaut when doing the weekly shop.
Key item to buy: A metallic pleated skirt.
House of Holland, Dior, Chanel and pretty much every designer out there showcased a spectrum of colour on their catwalks this season. We actually had to check we weren’t in spring summer. We’re not, sorry, but wearing brights will actually make you happier about it, we promise.
Colour stuck? Literally every bright is a go, but if you’re in to playing it safe always bet on red, it might not win you the jackpot, but you’ll be fashionably on trend. Cha ching!
Key item to buy: A red biker jacket.
A sinister fairytale took over the runways of Dolce and Gabbana and Givenchy, with floated long dresses, hooded capes and animal prints cascading down the catwalks. Wear it your way, with deeply shaded florals and the odd owl print or two. Wit woo!
Key item to buy: A dark floral or embroidered dress.
