September is already upon us so it is time to start putting away our summer vest tops and shorts for another year and look ahead to the colder months. You may not be quite ready to start making the transition from summer to autumn just yet however with so many exciting trends to look forward to it won’t be long before you are happily making space in your wardrobe ready for the new season.
This colour is a strong trend this season and what says autumn and (particularly) winter better than red? Whether you go for the bold option and dress head to toe in red making a huge statement or opt for a subtle nod to the trend with just one red item of clothing to bring an outfit up to date, red is definitely a must have edition to any wardrobe. It also just so happens to be the most flattering colour for most skin tones so that’s a bonus too! Check out this gorgeous cold shoulder top from YOURS Clothing, perfect for a night out with friends. If you’re not a fan of red or feel it is a bit too bold then opt for burgundy instead.
Always good when such a wardrobe staple stays a firm favourite for another year! Layering slouchy chunky knits over midi skirts continues to stay a hot look especially with bright metallic boots. This Asymmetric jumper from YOURS Clothing is perfect for the colder days when you want to keep looking stylish; wear with cigarette printed trousers and heels.
This trend has been around for a while now and will continue into autumn / winter this year too. Whether it is on a casual long sleeved tee, jumper or a shirt this statement trend adds some drama to an everyday outfit. Check out this gorgeous mustard top from Peacocks, not only is it a bargain at £14 but it is also available in forest green or this seasons must have colour; red.
Another trend that continues to stay is the over the knee boot. Nothing adds a bit of glamour to an outfit quite like this style of footwear. Wear with a skirt, shirt dress or they look stunning over jeans making an otherwise casual outfit that little more dressed up. Linzi are always on point when it comes to trendy footwear at affordable prices. These over the knee boots are only £35!
Probably the most feminine trend; frills are girly and fun and can be worn in a number of ways; think ruffle skirts or frilly necklines and sleeves. Think trousers with a pleated or frilled waist (this style of tailoring is extremely flattering too) whether you want a frilly blouse full of ruffles or a subtle simple top with frilled sleeves, the options are endless. The Harvey Centre’s Tina Jayne Boutique have this gorgeous pair of pleated waist trousers which give a subtle effect and are perfect for taking from the office to after work drinks.
Bling up your regular footwear whether they be boots or skaters with pearl embellishment. Check out these classic style heeled ankle boots from Linzi with an embellished block heel to add just a subtle effect, alternatively they have a huge range of sneakers decorated to update a basic every day shoe and make it more interesting.
If you have already been browsing the high streets new arrivals you may have spotted that lace is featured quite heavily. Lace is a big trend in tights this coming cold season; think old fashioned wedding stockings and you get the idea. Big looks this season include tops with subtle lace touches across the chest area or finishing off the hems and cuffs or even full lace sleeves. A trend that continues are tights under distressed denim jeans so to bring that trend into Autumn and Winter you could team your ripped jeans with lace tights. The combination of textures and opposite styles – raw, ripped denim with soft, delicate lace – will look eye catching whether dressed up with heels or dressed down with sneakers. This lace top from Choice is perfect for every day or if you are wanting something a bit dressier check out this lace ruffle top from Peacocks.
