Cleo Lacey Shares With Us The 7 Trends You’ll Be Wearing This Season
There is quite simply a whole host of new trends to have on your radar for this new season. While bright and sunny yellows seem to be the colour of the new season seen on most catwalks, feathers are certainly the fancy touch you’ll be adding to your wardrobe and perfect for the party season ahead. Enormous bags were everywhere whilst shoulders got the puffy treatment.
Cleo Lacey picks a few of the top looks and trends you’ll be seeing in the stores which are hopefully relatable that you can make work into your wardrobe…
BIRDS OF A FEATHER
Undoubtedly one of the most prominent trends to come out of the autumn winter 2019 shows was feathers. They were shown in various forms, some extravagant and some more subtle
GIVE IT SOME SHOULDER
Shoulders were big on the autumn winter 2019 catwalks, but not in a harsh, padded, Dallas eat your heart out kind of way, with designers instead adorning dresses and shirts with exaggerated, puffy shoulder detail.
SUPER SIZE YOUR BAG
Although bags came in tiny form too, there was a growing trend for the enormous tote (which I personally love!! Bigger the bag the smaller you look!) Some handbags were almost the size of overnight bags, carried under the arm or slung over the shoulder. This is probably one of the most useful trends of the season – for once, you will be able to house everything you need. Victoria Beckham and Rosie Huntingdon Whiteley have already been spotted sporting the trend.
Well there’s actually nothing mellow about this season’s yellow that’s for sure! If you dread heading into the grey, winter months and have a wardrobe to match, then this season you might want to add a pop of yellow. The colour was everywhere, whether you want to inject just a touch to an ensemble or try a head-to-toe look, there’s plenty of inspiration awaiting you. Just make sure you choose a tone that works with your skin or stick to it in accessory form (I’m dying for the yellow Manolo Blahnik Hangisis!)
Leopard print makes a comeback year after year and whether you dare to wear it head-to-toe or just experiment with accessories, there are plenty of stylish ways to wear the animal print. We’ve seen it in full swing for spring summer and it’s definitely not going anywhere for Autumn Winter. Balance out a midi skirt with a laidback white tee and trainers. For a more conservative look, team midi length dresses with a classic court shoe. For a subtle dip into the trend, try a leopard belt or pair of shoes. This classic print easily adds interest to neutral outfits.
It might have been a big trend for SS19, heavily adopted by the street stylers and fashion bloggers, but there is no denying that not-so-boring beige is going to be everywhere again. Caramel, chestnut, chocolate, biscuit: one of next season’s favourite colour palettes looks as delicious as it sounds. A natural progression from last season’s adoption of beige, designers opted for warm and easy-to-wear shades. Shown mostly in a head-to-toe look, Its an easy one to adopt and a trend that will stand the test of time so, think about investment pieces (like a camel Max Mara winter coat.)
If you’re a fan of the statement accessory, then look no further than autumn’s big shoe trend: the highlighter heel. Bright-coloured court shoes look to be a favourite ahead of the new season. Day or evening, the catwalks proved that they might just be the perfect addition to your officewear too (especially if you wear a lot of black).
