Of course, you can always do the “new year, new you” thing and just replace your worn-out basics, or you can look at the 2019 runway shows as a moment to truly refresh your wardrobe; with these trends, it deserves it!
You need to go into autumn well-informed, this is what you should be shopping for!
The street-style friendly knit and midi skirt twosome is a big thing and the trend has translated onto pavements like nobody’s business. You may have the ingredients to make this happen already but we all need a new combo. If you want to make the most of your waist go for a cropped jumper, if you want to create a waist get a skirt with a waist band and tuck the middle of the jumper into it, if you are wanting to accentuate the trend be bold with a voluminous sleeve on your jumper option or lengthen your torso and don’t tuck the jumper in at all for an illusion of height when worn with heels. For the ultimate girl trick, the hair tuck… make it happen for the streetwise appeal and a sense of ease.
Tone wise, things have gone very earthy from sand to tan, cream and khaki your neutrals have lightened up to balance the deep and mysterious colours looming. Pink and maroon have partnered up, burnt orange and mustard yellow as well as khaki and eggplant.
Power suits are a form of art and this season is serving up some empowering vibes in the print forecast, they are statement making. A cropped pair of trousers will make for a more playful shoe opportunity and this is where the colour pop can come in. Classic toe-cap colours have become a signature to satisfy the needs of the most fashionable wearers. Keep it sleek with streamlined accessories and choose one item only, my pick… a chunky resin necklace.
No trends are too risky, you need to take the risk to become wildly good at it and if you are reading this it means you have already started.
