Welcome to the second instalment of the new season trend report – taking a sneak preview at the hottest catwalk inspired looks that every woman should be wearing for the autumn season ahead.
Last week we covered animal print, studded bags, the biker jacket and sculptured dress. Here are four more key trends that have got me (and the fashion media) in a shopping frenzy, with a few pointers on how best to wear these lust – haves. The below will seriously solve all your ‘what to wear’ wardrobe dilemmas for many, many months to come:
Showcased on the runways of Emilio Pucci, Erdem, Balmain and London – born designer Charlotte Ronson’s shows, cobalt blue is making waves this autumn! As the colour is so striking, you’re best to keep accessories simple and fuss – free, such as going for all black or all gold.
I love this Wallis shift dress, only £37.
Power dressing takes on new heights – it’s 80’s inspired with a modern twist. Donna Karen showed us the way to wear sharp tailored pencil skirts is with a fine knit, fitted jacket and a thin belt to complete the look.
For a similar version of DKNY’s pencil skirt in dogtooth (another autumn wish favourite) try this flattering Wallis number for size.
Gucci went crazy on the catwalk with bold, bright shades on dresses, tunics and tops. To achieve this super-chic colour-blocking look for yourself try this Wallis tunic top and team it with black leggings and black shoes. It’s also figure flattering as the big prints grab all the attention and wearing black on black extras will create the illusion of longer legs too!
The embellishment trend goes from strength to strength. Balmain and Jean Paul Gaultier worked studs onto biker jackets and body con dresses. For a less rock chic and more feminine way to introduce studs into your wardrobe, try one of these Wallis embellished tops with either studs, pretty beading or antique detailing. Perfect for dazzling by day and by night.
