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.
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.
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.
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 🙂
