As we step further into autumn/winter, it’s time to start thinking about revamping our wardrobes before chillier weather kicks in. So, say goodbye to your summer style of flowing maxi dresses and shorter-than-short shorts and say hello to comforting winter clothes. Think: faux fur, luxurious leathers and fluffy jumpers. Here are the top women’s winter trends that have everyone talking this season:
Camel coats have long been a winter staple, and this year it’s no different. It’s a timeless look that never seems to go out of style. They’re wonderfully versatile, and they can be worn with practically any colour. Camel brown looks especially gorgeous with autumnal colours, such as: maroon, khaki, burnt oranges and deep reds.
Animal print comes in and out of style almost more than any other trend. All eyes were on Victoria Beckham’s leopard print mac on the runway at New York, with many designers following suit with other leopard print collections. Don’t worry if leopard print isn’t your thing, snakeskin and tiger print are also this seasons hottest looks.
Layer Upon Layer
Layering up is a must this autumn, which is handy – because it’s getting a little cold outside! Balenciaga set the precedent with a bizarre yet surprisingly popular 7 layer coat, but if you’re not that bold, then you can recreate the look adding your own flair. Pair a t-shirt with an open plaid shirt, then mix with a jacket and coat for good measure.
High-shine patent garments are back for winter 2018. Don’t just play it safe with black patent pieces this season, get creative with olive greens and beige tones to complete your outfit. If you’re feeling brave then go for an all-patent ensemble with a patent dress or dress it down with a fluffy jumper tucked into a cute patent skirt.
Femininity takes a masculine twist with the tuxedo dress hybrid. It’s this seasons must have party dress look, especially when teamed with some gorgeous thigh high boots and delicate jewellery. Be bold and opt for the daring v-neckline tuxedo dresses worn with lace designer lingerie to really turn heads at your Christmas party.
All Tweed Everything
A classic tweed blazer can never go out of style, but this season tweed has been used to make long pleated skirts with matching jackets (a homage to Clueless). Calvin Klein have brought back granddad style coats and floor length pleated dresses, while Prada used tweed as foil mixed with digital prints to create mid-length coats and cropped trousers.
Which Will You Try?
With so many key trends to look out for this winter, you’re spoilt for choice for new additions to your wardrobe. Whether you want to unleash your inner animal and take on the leopard print trend or throwback to the 90’s with a classic tweed co-ord, there’s a trend to suit your mood. Don’t be shy, autumn/winter is the perfect time to experiment with your style and try something different.
