Autumn is my favourite fashion season and I am hoping Autumn 2018 will deliver my expectations. I went to the Trafford Centre to browse the new trends and to be honest I wasn’t all that impressed, the clothes in the high streets are so predictable! A lot of burnt orange, burgundy and dark green as the colour pallet (how ground-breaking). In terms of clothes, again a lot of pinafores and teddy bear coats, in my opinion that was great for 2017 but I was hoping fashion would have progressed. I did manage to find some pieces that I think will fit well into Autumn 2018, online shopping might have too best way too update your autumn wardrobe.
- Leopard Print Everything.
So you already knew this was a trend but personally I wouldn’t wear a full on leopard print item such as a top, skirt or coat. I think you have to be a certain level of cool too be able to look good in a leopard print coat, think Anita Pallenberg esc. I do however like subtle hints of leopard print, for example on a flat shoes, a scrunchie or a bandana tied onto a bag, that is how I will incorporate this tend in Autumn 2018.
Boohoo Dress £22.
2. Rainbow Jumpers.
Again quite a dividing trend but I do actually like this one. I am going to opt for a pastel rainbow jumper but why not inject some serious bold colour into your wardrobe. I have seen one from Primark for £10 if you are not sure about it. If you check ASOS you will be able too look at a range of rainbow jumpers and pick your favourite.
Monki Rainbow Jumper £25 Available at ASOS
3. Boiler Suits.
This may sound weird but I really think this will take off in Autumn 2018. Topshop have two and I love the black with white piping boiler suit however it is £65 and so I checked ASOS and found an alternative for £45. I would recommend making sure it fits well because otherwise you may look a little shapeless, perhaps try a belt in that case.
ASOS Boiler Suit £45.
I think bright orange will start creeping in Autumn this year. Whilst it is a bold colour, I have an orange tee which I tuck into black jeans and it adds a nice pop of colour too an all black outfit.
5. Teddy Bear Coats.
In my opinion, I liked these coats but for 2017/ early 2018. I have a black one and whilst I got loads of wear out of it, I enjoy getting a new winter coat each year and I just think everyone will be wearing a tan coloured teddy bear coat. I just find it awkward when you walk past people and you are wearing the same coat, plus I am not cool enough too wear a leopard print coat.
6. Windbreaker Jackets.
Practical and give a sports lux’s vibe to an outfit. I bought a black and grey one from the men’s section in Primark for £12.
7. Cargo Trousers.
I like this trend a lot, a trouser that your legs can breath in. I think they are quite a masculine looking trouser and so are perfect for people who want to tone down an outfit. However, I would wear cargo trousers with heals and a black crop top for a night out. Perfect day to night trousers.
Bershka Cargo Trousers £25.99
8. Midi Skirts with Flats.
I love this! Again adding a masculine element too a feminine item. I love black floral print midi skirts with trainers, vans or boots. I have one dress from Nasty Gal which is a wrap dress with an open midi skirt, love it.
Boohoo Wrap Skirt £10.
9. Open Back Jumpers.
Whilst this item certainly defeats the point of wearing a jumper too keep you warm, it does look nice and so I am sure we will all manage. I have seen many on ASOS and Misguided. You could wear it with a completely open back and either go braless or wear a cute bralette with your hair in a bun. Cute!
10. Face Print.
I am actually a fan of this one! I have a tee from Vintage Reclaimed with faces on it and I think it looks very chic and reminds me of the kind of item one might find in Copenhagen. I also have gold earrings with faces on. A number of high street stores are doing these but the cheapest I have seen are in Primark for £2 in silver.
Hope you enjoyed this post, please let me know of any other trend you have seen that you are loving!
