Trends come and go, no matter how long or short they stay, one must always be updated, especially for those who love fashion in general. To prepare you for this coming autumn and winter, here is our Autumn / Winter 2014 Fashion Trend Report you shouldn’t skip reading.
It’s All About the Waist
While the past season focused on boxed shapes, the upcoming autumn and winter seasons will be all about the waist. Emphasizing the waist creates a sharper look, but still keeps the feminine touch among women. Use a statement belt paired over a jacket or an oversized coat. This will also work with kimono-style wrap around coats and or blouses.
While sports are often done during summer, that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a sporty look for autumn and winter. Forget very high heels, sport lux shoes will be the practical choice for the upcoming seasons. Trainer-inspired footwear is now being paired with various outfit collections of Chanel and Dior. Classic trainers have been given a twist by adding Chanel’s signature tweed fabrics, while over at Dior, athletic-inspired platforms with colourful chunky soles are trending. There is also a revival of platform trainers from the 90s, this time with LED light adornments.
Nude Colour Blocking
Spring and summer are often the most colourful seasons, but nude colour blocking isn’t as boring as you think. This trend refers to outfits that are comprised mainly of blocks of soft colors, which will surely be a hit in autumn and winter. These low-key outfits include luscious caramels and alluring pastels. They aren’t as loud as printed and bright designs, but they still definitely have an impact through the beautiful textures of the clothes.
Masculine tailoring will also be prevalent in autumn and winter, even among ladies wear. Mannish flats paired with fitted suits highlight strong hourglass figures. For a more sensual glamour, go for a pinstripe suit. If you’ll be missing the colors of spring and summer, don’t fret. There will also be an abundance of lose silky fabrics that are rich in color and splashed with prints.
Feeling abstract? Showcase that feeling through the use of abstract paneling. This trend embeds modern art influences into the designs for autumn and winter fashion. You can go for simple but beautiful bias-cut designs, mismatched but striking color blocking styles, or varied yet intriguing materials.
Huge and Chunky Accessories
When it comes to accessories, huge and chunky ones will be dominate autumn and winter. Go ahead and embellish your look with oversized accessories with exaggerated proportions. Pair them with dresses, jumpers, and jackets. Metallic accessories are recommended, as well as those adorned with jewels.
Dark Blue Colors
Feeling emo? Black doesn’t have to be your only choice. This autumn and winter, dark blue will be a chic trend. Be it navy or midnight, this hue will make evening dressing easy whether you’re in a long dress or a mini one. You can soften your look by going for frilled & chunky knits partnered with silky trousers.
