what to be buying and looking out for now, ready for A/W17.
As LFW is getting ready to showcase S/S18 the high st is moving forward also towards A/W. It is that strange time of year where typically it is always hard to know what to be looking out for. Most people have had their summer holiday and are now looking forward to Autumn. So with this in mind I have pulled together some top trends for the coming months, from pieces available on the high st now.
This has been a firm fashion favourite on the catwalks and on the high st for the past couple of A/W seasons and is sticking around for this year. 2017 is all about the Teddy bear style of fur. It is a super soft and cosy fur with more room for a lighter colour palette with brown, grey, cream, white and pastel tones. This trend has been shown particularly well at other the Anya Hindmarch and Miu Miu A/W17 shows.
The best way to inject this trend is with an accessory. I have seen loads of options on the high street from cute quirky fur bags to shoes! Teddy fur coats and jackets are also starting to creep in looking forward to the months ahead. A great way to wear this trend now is to throw a cosy teddy fur over a floral tea dress.
Checks have been all over the catwalks including Stella McCartney and Mulberry. Recently they have been spotted all over the high street. This trend has evolved moving on from the summers much loved gingham trend into heritage inspired checks.
This trend is all about statement pieces and co-orination with matching check blazers, trousers and skirts. This is the perfect look when teamed with a logo tee to relax the formal elements or finish an outfit with an oversized heritage check coat or chunky knit.
Red Clash Flash
This colour has been huge this Summer and will be hanging around for Autumn, with an update from colour blocking to colour clashing with hot pink. This bold look shouldn’t work but striking pink and red combos on the catwalk at Mui Mu, Prada and Valentino give me all the feels for this trend.
This trend can be done as subtle or bold as you like by justing red accessories matched with a pink top or an all out layered clash.
This trend is super fun to play with but disastrous if you get it wrong. The trick is you don’t want to clash more than three textures at once or the outfit will become confusing. A great example is to use vinyl or leather as a base and layer up with knitwear or fur another great texture clash for all out glamour is velvet and fur very A/W.
