Today's post is an update on all the fashion trends that are trickling down from the catwalks to the highstreet for autumn/winter 2014!
Capes, cloaks & oversized scarves At Burberry they were giant scarves draped over models shoulders with initials emblazoned across them, at Valentino they were of fairytale proportions and scattered with embroidered butterflies, at Mcqueen trimmed with black fur or splattered with otherworldly colours and patterns.. You can’t avoid the cape this year. Echo Burberry with this Asos tartan number and hit two trends with one stone
Pale pink I’m sure you had to living under a rock to not realise the pastel pink coat trend last winter! Even M&S had one (It was gorgeous btw.. don't judge a shop by its dowdy reputation!) This autumn/ winter history repeats itself - not only in the form of deliciously soft rosy wool coats but also in candy pink patent skirts and strawberry ice cream coloured fluffy jumpers. I for one am happy to take the springtime pastels trend on early and make like Cara at the Chanel Supermarket show… (Look it up). This pink coat is actually from Primark and costs a mere 25 pounds.. meaning it's you can try out the trend without breaking the bank!
Smarten Up We British girls are well known for our quirky and slightly scruffy fashion choices, and that is something I am proud to admit! However, this season sees a change in the air, as a smarter look is donned by the British fashion & blogger clique. Referencing Alexa Chung’s ‘geek chic’ (as if the phrase wasn’t overused enough) - cropped cigarette pants have shown up all over the high street and shirt collars pop out of adorable knit jumpers everywhere I turn. We do the ‘smart look’ with our own fashion ingenuity sewn in - although still a bit scruffy around the edges inevitably!
Fluffy fuzzy furry Well, even if you missed the pale pink trend last year you can’t possibly have passed by the fuzzy jumper trend! This year fluff is back with a vengeance... Bunny-like jumpers and shearling coats meet faux fur gilets and shaggy wool collars! Snuggly Cosiness awaits us ladies! See this Whistles faux fur jacket as your introduction to the furry trend.
60’s Mod Louis Vuitton showed perfect A-line shift dresses, knee high patent boots and polo necks. The prints at Valentino were unmistakably bold and Mod inspired. I am particularly happy this seasons’ inspiration comes from my favorite era the 1960's! Pointed 60s flats and loafers are also having a comeback and can be seen in a lot of the new highstreet collections. This pointed flat/loafer hybrid from River Island is perfect to wear with your new Topshop cigarette pants!
Well, that is all for now folks you can find all the links for the pieces in this post below so...happy shopping I guess! This post will also be featured on The Chiswick Herald newspaper as my first fashion feature so pop over and give the website a little look over if you are interested!
