It’s that time of year again. Summer has come to an end and Autumn has begun. At this time of year one of my favourite things to do is to look through the new collections and runway shows, to see the new upcoming trends for the season. With September marking the start of Autumn/Winter 2017 I wanted to create a trend support to share with you. Below I have compiled 5 key trends for this season with 4 of my favourite looks from each trend.

The first trend I am in love with this season is folk. This season we will see beautiful floral retro garments incorporating crochet and embroidery. The one thing I am so excited to see from this trend are the floaty dresses. Making this trend the perfect trend to transition from Summer to Autumn.
The second trend which will be big this season is ruffles. A well placed ruffle can hide away all the lumps and bumps you don’t want seen. In addition to this ruffles can be used to replace statement jewellery. Making this trend perfect for those lazy days where a low effort outfit is essential.
A regular trend for Autumn/Winter is Plaid and this season is no different. This year designers are calling this trend ‘New Tartan.’ From this trend we can expect flowing silhouettes and modernised plaid patterns inspired by bright 70’s Plaid. A key statement garment to look out for from this trend Plaid pants.
A huge colour trend for this season is red. Now last season we saw the introduction to red. We saw red teaming with baby pink making the trend fun and playful. However from this season we will see the trend become more sophisticated. We can expect scarlet reds, deep wine reds, brick reds and every other shade of red in between. This trend is not about one statement garment. No. With this trend we are talking head to toe red. So I recommend getting your red lippy on standby!
The final trend I want to talk about is capes. Capes are a regular guest in the Autumn/Winter collections but this season will see capes make a comeback. From this trend we will see capes in different lengths, colours and fabrics. This season we will see capes featuring embellishments such as feathers, lace, beads and pearls. Making this outerwear garment a must have style statement.
Are there any trends your loving this season? Let me know below.
Until Next time,
