The Outfit With Leopard Print.

I never thought I would wear leopard print again. This may be due to the scaring memory of my eight year old self who wore bright purple,  leopard print leggings. It actually makes me cringe thinking about the horrendous outfits I put together and my mother let me leave the house! My nine year old self swore, I would never wear leopard print again, yet here I am at nineteen betraying myself.

Leopard print has been in for most of 2018 and it has taken me this long to partake in the trend. This time it is more inline with my style and I feel a little more toned down!

I think this outfit is for those cool, casual events, for example I wore mine to a bar to watch a live band. Plus concerts or house parties, I also think this would be good for.

Autumn 2018 Trends.

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.

  1. 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.

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.

4. Orange. 

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.

Boohoo Windbreaker £18

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.

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!

Pretty Little Thing Open Back Jumper £20.

 

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.
