I always get really excited about Autumn/Winter trends, sometimes more so than the Spring/Summer ones.
It’s a time for layering, meaning the styling possibilities are countless!
Luckily we seem to have a few days left of summer yet (typical September) but there’s no harm in being prepared.
And let’s be honest do we really need another excuse to do a little shopping?
I thought I would tell you about some of the trends I am excited to try out this season. I do want to remind you all that you do NOT have to follow trends! It is a fun way to try new things but it’s much better to be wearing things you like. The best kind of style is your own personal style!
I can’t begin to explain how excited I was when I came across these ‘blanket wraps’ on New Look’s website.
They look really similar to a kimono and we all know how loveable they are. Well, obviously the material is a hell of a lot thicker!
I’m already dreaming about wrapping up in one, with some hot chocolate on a cold winter’s day. I’ll be styling mine with some skinny jeans, boots, a skinny belt and a long sleeve top. And who can complain when they are only £20!!!
You can view more over on the NL website. Here’s my favourites…
Go for the tartan one and tick two trends off this season. That’s right, tartan is back again from last year.
Powder blue aka baby blue is a huge colour trend for Autumn/Winter this year.
Remember that highly sought after blue coat by M&S last year, yep ladies it’s time to go dig it out again.
Even the press launch photos for Belfast Fashion Week featured hues of powder blue.
Not lucky enough to grab the M&S coat last year? What about this wee number from Missguided, for only £40!
And now my favourite for last, the colour burnt orange. It’s a really nice transitional colour.
I’ve already added two burnt orange pieces to my wardrobe; a Forever 21 play suit and a box tee from Exhibit.
But I think there is still some room for this cosy little jumper...
Tell me, what trends will you be wearing this season? And what pieces are you looking forward to getting your hands on?
