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 first part of our handy A-Z autumn winter trends guide, covering A-G. We’ll be back tomorrow with H-M and the last two parts in two weeks time.
A is for Aspen Chic
Think high class ski resort, without the skis. And not in Aspen but anywhere you want. And not in mountains, but on your high street, down the pub, wherever really. Think Fairisle knits, textured fabrics, pom pom hats, plaids, cosy cardigans, you get the idea.
B is for Blood Red
Yep, bright, bold, blood red is going to be a big trend this autumn winter. So, it has pride of place in our A-Z autumn winter trends countdown at B, with another B – boots.
C is for Capes
This really is the season of cover-ups, coats and capes. Anything big, bold, striking and warm. It’s proper autumn winter dressing.
l-r: Cape, £44.99, New Look, textured cape, £69.99, H&M
D is for Dietrich Days
Think the heady days of Hollywood, from the end of the 20s in to the 1930s – slinky gowns, sultry looks, beading, embellishment, sequins. Glamour, glamour, glamour, but in a sophisticated Marlene way.
l-r: Lace gown, £119.99, New Look, Sequinned gown, £180, Debut @ Debenhams
E is for Embellishment
Embellishment. A perennial fashion favourite, and this season it’s everywhere to has to be E in our A-Z autumn winter trends run down. Embellishment can be jewels, embroidery, beads, feathers – anything. Looks fabulous on a slinky LBD
Dress, £39.99, New Look
F is for Folklore and Fairytales
Probably one of our favourite trends, hard o describe, and not quite hitting the stores yet. This one can be interpreted in many ways – winter florals, folky boots, blanket style cover ups, or animal prints on clothes, lots of owl prints, hooded capes, swishing long dresses. We love it!
Clockwise, from top left: Blanket cape, £24.99, winter floral dress, £19.99, both New Look, boots, £59.99, H&M
G is for Grey
We’ve covered this one already – gorgeous grey. Light, dark, charcoal – almost 50 shades of grey (sorry!). Looks fantastic in the evening with silver, works brilliantly for the office, and benefits form a contrasting colourful piece.
Trousers, £89, French Connection
