Autumn Trends Preview

Yes, it’s July, but chances are it might be raining outside, and you might be thinking about Autumn already. So, it’s time for an autumn trends preview.

Our autumn trends preview is in the shape of a weekly wishlist – 14 items we are popping down on our autumn trends list now, to buy later. Most of these items will hit the stores around late August/early September.

But what are the autumn trends you should be looking for? There are a few in particular that stand out. One of those is fashion perennial, leopard print. No longer thought of as brassy or cheap, leopard print is a fashionista musthave, and our tip for this coming autumn season is to wear it in coat-form.

So, trust us, leopard print coats will be everywhere. But it also looks fab on dresses and accessories too. Another big one of the autumn trends we love is ruffles. They previewed in the spring, but this winter, they’re everywhere, and look fab on knitwear. Plaids and checks are big, as is embellishment and metallics.

Dunagrees will still be on-trend for another season at least – they look fab with roll neck sweaters and high neck blouses.

And our other big ‘trend to watch’ for this autumn is velvet. Velvet EVERYTHING! From coats, to dresses, to tops, to boots, to shoes!
