The Great Outdoors trend is one of the best trends of the season. It’s really easy to do, you can adapt it to suit your needs, and it involves, at times, cute animals. What’s not to love?
So, what is this great outdoors trend? No, it’s not a trend based on The Great Outdoors, the 1988 movie starring Dan Aykroyd and John Candy. But if you haven’t seen that, give it a go – there is plaid (part of this trend) and lots of laughs…
Anyway, back to clothes. The great outdoors trend is simple – but it’s not just for outdoors. We’re not talking fleeces and berghaus here, okay. We’re talking cosy coats, blanket wraps, leather and lumberjack, fur trims, fairytales, wild animals, bold patterns and rich textures. Warmth, yes, but just a nod of the trend works for evening outfits too. How? Trust me…
Team a full midi skirt with an owl print T-shirt, a cosy, yet sophisticated oversized cardigan, and some super on-trend flats, and finish with a ponyskin clutch – and there you go, the great outdoors trend, for an evening out.

What I love about this trend is the ability to mix colours, fabrics, prints, and come over all Carrie Bradshaw like, agreed? Team a full skirt with a gorgeous coat, sweater and heels for a true vintage Sex And The City look.
Keep it cute with a playsuit, fur gilet and hat, and some comfortable cosy UGG boots.
