Five autumn trends to update your wardrobe

Time to update our Autumn/Winter wardrobe with stunning trends and must have pieces. Here is a roundup of what to expect in your wardrobe this season.

The decade

A major silhouette in the new season collections, The 60’s are definitely back and you are going to love it. We are seeing a lot of dolly bird dresses with Chelsea boots, miniskirts, retro prints and knee high boots. The skirts are flared and paired with knitted jumpers and leather belts, retro dresses are worn for cocktails hours.

Louis Vuitton

The colour

Dazzling Red was a dominant colour on the catwalk, from coats, trousers and knits to evening gowns and accessories.

Plum is a second coveted shade for the new season. Back in luxurious textures of leather, velvet, silk or fur. Inject this hue in your work wardrobe for an instant style update.

Black and white had a fascinating attention in the autumn winter collections. This classic combo was mainly found in workwear and casual looks. You can expect to find monochrome combined with a pop of primary colour, red, yellow, green or blue.

But unexpected vibrant colours combinations will illuminate your wardrobe: yellow and plum, khaki and brown, pink and green or red and blue.

Pastel lovers will be spoiled with a rainbow of candy hues.  Pastels work just a wels in the cooler months. Peppermint, lilac or baby blue.

The must have

Statement coats and outwears are strong silhouettes for the new season.  A super coat is the one piece you really need to invest in this season, be it a cocoon style, cape, blanket type wrap.  The colours palettes vary from bright blue, pink and red to traditional grey, winter white and camel or candy shades.

Shearling coats and jackets are back in force and are coveted cover-ups for weekend casual wear. The colours are neutral: black, cream or camel but they also come in contrasting and daring hues of blues, metallic or green.

Ralph Lauren

The texture

Wool has once again returned to the spotlight. Dresses combined with matching scarves, or fisherman cardigans with gloves and hats. If you are injecting some wool in your wardrobe, make it grey or white, the neutral colours of the season. Combining faux fur and wool for your autumn/winter silhouettes is a super stylish for off-duty look. Same for leather and wool or leather and faux fur.

By night sheers textures enriched with precious details will illuminate your look. The look is delicate, decadent and ultra feminine for any evening do’s this coming season.

The prints

Checks have dominated the catwalks, classic black and white or modern duos of black and blue, red and black, pink and grey. For work or casual it is a print that works superbly as a dress, coat, skirt or knit.

Animal prints vs. Abstracts or florals

Spoiled for choice prints are coming in all sort of colors and form, animal patterns, florals, abstracts, big small or bold. Wear them in your accessories or as a key item in your outfit be it your skirt, top or dress. The rules are simple: balance the prints with a solid colour or, if you are feeling adventurous go for colour clash.
