Trend Forecast: Autumn/Winter 2014 trends I am loving

I have always maintained in this blog that I am not a very trend-oriented person. I love  making a trend my own. But I admit that I do like to browse through popular trends just for inspiration. So, without further ado here are things that have captured my attention and which I hope to try this Autumn/ Winter. We are just on our way to Spring/Summer here in UK and the fashion world is already talking about AW. Wow! advance-thinking, indeed.

Matchy-Matchy layering:

As a kid, my mum would always dress me up in matching-matching layers. Funnily enough, I hated it. But I guess our tastes do change and I find this look absolutely fun yet sophisticated enough to turn heads in the right way. Matchy-matchy layering was featured in all the big shows–Burberry, Temperley, Giles and Peter Pilotto. The easiest way to nail this look? Matching your scarf to your coat. Something which I cannot wait to try.

Leopard Print:

If I have a style weakness it has to be the leopard print. As much as I try to resist it, a leopard print would somehow find its way in my closet. I love the sheer boldness of this print. So, I am glad this flirty yet fierce appeared in the form of coat and dress at Céline and Chloé. I cannot wait to roar (once again) in this print.

Bright blue and Orange:

Every season brings in its favourite colour and this AW14 will be about bright blues and oranges. A great way to break the monotony of winter grey, I say. But if this is too bold for you then  take cue from Anya Hindmarch whose show featured quirky bags in these colours.

Folklore Fantasy:

Earthy colours, textures, fluid shapes, flowing shapes and floaty silhouette makes this trend so scrumptious, different and with just the right amount of boho-chic; and when you know that even Burberry has deviated from their otherwise staid, military inspired print for something like this you know folklore inspired look has gone mainstream. Now, what I would like to see is how the high-street is going to adopt this look. 

These are my top picks for the upcoming autumn/winter and I cannot wait to incorporate these trends and personalise them in the coming months 🙂
