As the heat of summer begins to wane, it is time to start thinking of your Fall clothing. After seeing what was on the runways, we can report that this autumn will be filled with animal prints, glossy fabrics and dangling earrings.
Let’s take a look at the nine top trends that will keep you looking fashion forward throughout the Fall.
1. Geometric Checks
Autumn and Winter fashions for the year 2018 include geometrical prints. If you are afraid you will look “Clueless”, don’t worry, these geometrical prints are much cooler than the movie. Rochas and Stella both had two-piece outfits made of the same material.
2. Dangling Earrings to Your Shoulders
Last year, we saw brightly coloured pom-pom inspired earrings. This season, you get a lot more in your earrings. The earrings are much heavier; so, you should start wearing heavier earrings to have them ready for the shoulder-grazing silver earrings that are coming this Fall and Winter.
3. Gloss Materials
Everything you can imagine will be glossy this Fall/Winter including heels, jumpsuits, gloves, coats and trousers. These shiny pieces pair perfectly with other soft materials like tweed jackets, faux fur shoes and cable-knit sweaters and even plus size shapewear.
4. Sparkling Dresses
Half of Saint Lauren’s Anthony Vaccarello Autumn/Winter 2018 collection included sequinned dresses. Whether you are looking for a full-length dramatic dress or fun and funky mini dress, find one that in sequinned. To prevent an over the top look, keep your makeup and jewellery simple.
5. Headwear Debut
The Autumn/Winter fashion shows for 2018 featured all types of headwear including hijabs, hats, turbans and hoods. However, there was a mixed response to some of the headwear. The religious headwear had mixed reactions. Some did not like the religious headwear, while others celebrated the designers who embraced the underrepresented cultures and included them in mainstream fashion.
6. Cowboy Boots
One of the most popular types of footwear on the catwalks was the humble cowboy boot. D&G’s cowboy boots were bejewelled. Isabel Marant chose a simpler cowboy boot, perfect for everyday wear. We recommend that you purchase two sets of cowboy boots. Grab a bejewelled pair and a simple cowboy boot so you have all of your bases covered.
7. Animal Prints
Animal prints abounded during the Autumn and Winter fashion shows of 2018. Victoria Beckham featured a leopard print trench coat, Isabel Marant designed a pair of snake print trousers while Givenchy designed a sweatshirt featuring a tiger print.
8. Mini Handbags
If you have been carrying receipts, notebooks, a spare outfit and lip balm in your purse, say goodbye to these items and say hello to a mini handbag. You will need to cut your clutter down a lot. The new handbags shown in the Autumn/Winter fashion shows of 2018 saw miniature purses that will hold your credit card and maybe a receipt. If you don’t think can make do with a miniature handbag, take the advice of Celine. Celine used a rope belt to attach several mini handbags.
Several large brands embraced comfort in their lines. These designers used quilting in their designs to increase the level of comfort in their designs. for example, la Lacoste added a pair of padded trousers, which would have made sitting on those uncomfortable benches at fashion shows much more comfortable.
The Autumn/Winter fashion shows of 2018 had a variety of prints and patterns. Whether you love animal prints or geometric prints, you will find something to wear this Fall. Begin building your wardrobe today so that you are fashion ready this Fall.
