Fall is upon us and winter is just around the corner, but just because the weather is changing doesn’t mean we have to forego the latest trends.
In fact, we should embrace the cooler weather, because we’re able to wrap ourselves up and get cozy with voguish fall trends! From hues so bright you need a sun-visor, quirky knitwear, candy-coloured coats and quilts to the edginess of the leather collections.
When it comes to fashion trends for autumn/winter 2013-2014 you can’t go wrong, it is so hard to just pick a single trend, since the designers and the Fashion Capitals (Paris, London, Milan and New York) have really treated our eyes this season with the creations they’ve unleashed!
This season is all about attitude, and that is something that every fashionista already exudes! The tartan trend has been turning heads everywhere, for its Highland inspiration that was transformed with a modern-day twist.
Every girl needs a little tartan flare in her wardrobe and the designers have used the print in multiple colours and styles. If you’re still looking for inspiration, look no further than Versace, Saint Laurent, Preen, Moschino, Mulberry and Givenchy!
Other fall inspiration has taken cues from menswear to create the boy-girl styling. You’ll no longer have to raid your boyfriend’s wardrobe with creations from Oscar De la Renta, Phillp Lim, Diesel Black Gold, Antonio Berardi, Emporio Armani, Haider Ackermann and Donna Karan that show off their superb tailoring. Just because this trend has taken cues from the boys does not mean that you cannot add your own feminine twist to the look!
If I am pressed for a fall favourite, it would have to be the regal trend! Why? Well, while this trend may be for the bold, there is a definite historical element surfacing and we all love our fashion history. Not to mention that the air of resplendence is hard to ignore!
We can draw inspiration from the runways of Valentino, JW Anderson, Dolce & Gabbana and Alexander McQueen. The tailoring is splendid—fitted bodices that cinche in the waist, stiff brocades and puffy sleeves that create structuring that is moralistic yet forms a structured sillhoutte. The detailing of this trend is insurmountable and enforces a regality that’s as daring as it is gorgeous!
