A-Z Autumn Winter Trends – Part Three

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 third part of our handy A-Z autumn winter trends guide, covering N-T. We’ll be back tomorrow with the final part.

N is for Normcore

What on earth is normcore, I hear you say. Well, it’s an easy trend that’s for sure – or is it. It’s about looking like you don’t care, maybe just wear anything, almost an anti-fashion fashion trend. Think chinos, jeans, t-shirts, shirts, and well, get yourself to GAP, where this normcore outfit is from!

AW14 style trends N for normcoreO is for One-Piece

Jumpsuit, playsuit, boiler suit. Call it what you want, the one-piece is here to stay. It’s been on-trend for years now, and now seems to be part of everyone’s wardrobe. So, make sure you have a one-piece of some sort in your autumn winter wardrobe. A leather boiler suit might be a bit much for everyone, so a lace topped jumpsuit could be perfect. Or just some casual denim dungarees.

P is for pastels

Yep, carrying on from summer, pastels are a winter trend, with pastel pink at the front again, and those pink coats again! If you bought one last winter, feel smug. If you didn’t get one this year!

Q is for Quilting

Quilting was seen on catwalks at Chloe, Dior and Kenzo in Paris – and not just on jackets. Trousers, dresses and skirts were cosy in quilting. What a perfect autumn winter trend! Choose quilting on a jacket or coat, or dare to wear a quilted skirt or dress!

R is for Roll-Necks

All hail the roll neck. And the polo neck. And the turtleneck. And the high neck. Just cover that neck. A nod to the 1960s trend this season comes in the shape of sweaters that cover your modesty. And keep you warm. Result.

S is for Sixties

Yep, there’s one decade that’s on trend this season and it’s the Sixties. And what better way to get the 1960s vibe than with a shift dress. Even better with a psychedelic pattern. Or sequins, or graphics. Short, straight and so easy to wear, the shift dress is a wardrobe staple we should all have at least one of.

T is for Tartan

Is there ever a season tartan, or plaid, is not in fashion? It’s back this year, and who doesn’t love a bit of tartan, Scottish or not? Checks, tartan, plaid – easy to wear, wintry and cosy, be it tops, trousers, dresses, skirts or coats. Embrace your Scottishness, Scottish or not!

Pastel pink prettiness!

Pastels. You’re going to see them EVERYWHERE this spring. You may even be sick of them, come, ooh, April, perhaps? Pastel pink is the most popular pastel choice, so we thought we would start there, and bring you the best of the pastel pink styles in the stores already.

Pastel pink is a lovely transitional colour to wear from winter in to spring. If the palest of pastel pink shades is too much, then try a more candy version. There is a lot of pink on its way into the stores in every shade this spring, so pastel pink won’t be your only choice.

But for now we will focus on the nudest, blush, powdery shades of pastel pink. A pastel pink coat is a great way to wear this shade. The pink coat was last autumn winter’s musthave coat, and the trend extends to this spring.

Candy pink shades work well in dresses, particularly with a retro vibe. Don’t forget those retro-style knickers!

Pastel pink can be loose and slouchy, a perfect Sunday shade. Slouchy tops and knits, pink chinos and oversize coats.

Gorgeous pink tailoring is an excellent choice for a spring wedding – mix it up a bit though, with shorts, instead of a skirt.

Pink looks great with black, but also works perfectly with denim – dark or faded. A simple pink accessory is a good way to reintroduce yourself to pastel pink – by spring, you’ll be fully embracing it!
