This time we’re fixing our gaze at the Autumn Fashion Trends to look for the next “It” trend. It’s an integral part of our DNA as fashion-fanatics. If part of our club, then you’ve been looking out closely for what’s hot and sought-after on the fashion runways this season.
Note down these Top 10 “all the rage” from our style diaries.
Don’t remember any crappy false impression you might have had about the animal print. Leopard and zebra prints are back with a bang for Autumn 2018. Try to keep the superfluity of your outfit trimmed down and gang up with a pair of flats.
Modest dressing has never been more prevalent than this season. The silhouette is distinctly covered-up. Ultra layered burgundy dresses and demure stockings are in utmost vogue. These attires keep up low hemlines and high necklines. Female sexuality couldn’t have played up so well.
High-shimmer fabrics are the key come-ons this season. A tacitly dominatrix appeal is created with vinyl, plastic, latex or leather. Metallic dresses crafted in glossy materials, feminine dresses created in flaming red with a rebellious edge or trench coats in a rain-proof sleek and lustrous finish have evoked a crowd-pleasing pull.
Knitted balaclavas have bowled over the fashion brigade with a surprising and stunning travel back. Without a shadow of doubt, they are the simplest way to keep warm. You can also take on the trend with the more wearable baker boy styles that are all cloaked and shrouded. Team with a turtleneck sweater to hold on to comfort and warmth.
Add a dash of heritage and elegance to your wardrobe by giving the tweed trend a whirl. Play with textures get novel fashion statements and styles with outsized and bold tweed coats paired with slender leather skirts.
Plaids, be it the heritage chic or tartan checks, in all their sundry forms, are the mood and the flavor of the new season. An oversized plaid dress donned over balloon sleeve shirts in vertical stripes or a more polished blazer and skirt combo incorporates the classic check collection with a pleasant feel.
Forget your pre-conceived beliefs about fringing with the most recent incarnations. They should be kept aside from the mud-spattered festival fields. Fringing has a more refined and aesthetic feel this time around. With beaded and shimmer gowns, skirts fitted with trailing ties and layered over knee-high boots will deck up every fashion influencer this season.
It’s undeniably this season’s “present everywhere” look. It’s hard to pay no heed to the all-pervasive western trend. Prairie dresses put together with cowboy boots are worth digging out of your closet to hike up the fashion game. A futuristic look made up of classic western shirts and tartan plaid dresses is something that everyone is going to embrace this season. Finish off the style with chic scarfs or neckerchiefs and cowboy boots.
Leather is the most powerful fabric this season that has invaded the fashion sphere with a wide-ranging line-up of trousers, skirts and trench coats. Black is not the only way out. Coats in petrol green, or midi dresses in butterscotch, have gained ample coolness. A black asymmetric leather skirt or straight leather trousers will serve your autumn well.
The industry simply wants your head to be cloaked. Use either a hood or a balaclava to conjure up a luxe street wear look with the trailblazing lo-fi jersey or anorak versions. You can also hit back with a graceful and womanly hooded cloak that’s got a fairytale-like narrative.
