Back in March we brought you a very handy four-part guide to spring summer trends. So, we’re back now with another very hand four-part guide, this time our A-Z autumn winter trends. Fashion is great, but a bit confusing, and we don’t want to be wearing the wrong thing do we?
So, here’s the final part of our handy A-Z autumn winter trends guide, covering U-Z.
U is for Underwear/Outerwear
Not since Madonna did it, has underwear as outerwear been such a trend. Well, okay, not just underwear worn as outerwear, but outerwear with elements of underwear. Like these shorts? Get it? But we’re not saying don’t wear a bra with your jeans if you can. And a teddy or body over opaque tights, with statement shoes and a leather jacket? Why not. Lady Gaga wore huge pants as daywear. Always remember that…
l-r: teddy, £24.99, Studio @ H&M, lace detail shorts, £34.99, Studio @ H&M, bra, £12.99, H&M
V is for Volume
Voluminous skirts in particular. Think 1940s, Dior’s New Look, and 1950s, circle skirts and twinsets. The volume in your midi skirt matters! The bigger the better!

W is for Winter Florals
Florals are not just for summer. Winter florals is a big trend this year, so look out for them and buy into them. Winter florals look best on a black background, and why not wear them head to toe?

X is for Xtra Big Coats
Okay, we’re pushing it a bit with this one, but outsize, extra big, and oversized are the only way coats should be this winter. Blanket coats are huge – literally! And a huge trend. Ooh, we can’t wait to get all cosy in a big, big, big coat!
Y is for Yeti Style
If a big old blanket coat isn’t your thing, maybe fake fur is? Yeti style, as we like to call it, is everywhere this winter. Fake fur coats, gilets, hats, scarves, bags – you want it in fake fur, you can have it!
Clockwise, from top left: Fake fur coat, £79, fake fur hat, £20, both Red Herring @ Debenhams, short fake fur jacket, £165, French Connection, fake fur gilet, £39.99, New Look, fake fur scarf, £25, JOY, brown fake fur coat, £59.99, Studio @ H&M
Z is for Zesty Brights
It’s winter, why would we not want to wear zesty brights? Beat SAD with bright, bold clothes! Well, at least help our mood a little. Bright colours are great in winter, so embrace zesty brights in at least one of your outfits this autumn winter.
