With the new fashion season right around the corner, many shops, be it online or on the high street, are putting all of their best sales online but, let’s be honest, the sales are of items in odd sizes or in shapes that didn’t sell well during the initial summer launch.
So this week I’m at a bit of a loss as to what to write about as we’re all sitting in fashion limbo, keenly awaiting the new season to hit the shops so we can start filling our wardrobes with the latest trends.
Since I have access to upcoming seasons at my job for a clothing company, I am privileged to see trends and popular themes among clothing which has yet to be seen by the public eye. It gives me a certain step up on my fashion blog competition which certainly is nice to know.
So what’s coming this season?
Autumn will be host to a beautiful array of camel and other neutral colours and I predict that patterns like Burberry will be incredibly popular in mini skirts. After all, we’ve already seen this creeping into shops, i.e the shoulder cut out jumper and Burberry inspired skirt from my Instagram below.
Another big trend which is continuing and evolving from the summer season is extravagant bold patterns like leopard and other animal print designs (which I’m soooo excited for) and other abstract takes on traditional prints.
Hopefully, we’ll see the rise of prints which look more like art and offer some visual stimulation which, frankly, could be very interesting to see.
I also predict that last year’s masculine styled women’s clothing will resurface (such as black jeans, Chelsea boots, trench coats, etc) and that the classic “jeans and a nice top” going out out outfits will overtake dresses as, let’s face it, no one in their late twenties wants cold legs in the winter time on a night out and we all just want to be living our most comfortable life.
I for one am looking forward to get into joggers and hoodies co-ords season and am eagerly awaiting the drop in the next few weeks.
What are your predictions for the winter? Let me know in the comments below or reach out to me on any of my social media channels.
Until next time.
