As the temperatures are swiftly dropping, it is all too tempting to wrap yourself up in a huge fluffy blanket and stay hibernating in it until next spring. However, this year’s A/W trends will be enough to persuade you to ditch that blanket and get your hands on these catwalk-worthy outfits! The large variety in these trends means there really is something for everyone this season.
- Oversized bags
Gone are the days of having to choose which of your everyday essentials will fit into your tiny handbag. This A/W, handbags have supersized, combining practicality and fashion. Perfect for storing a few spare pairs of gloves this winter!
- Fluorescent colours
A fluorescent pop of colour is the way to jazz up your outfit this season. With every neon shade flooding the catwalk, stay subtle with a bright pair of shoes or a bag, or go all out with a fully fluorescent outfit.
- Neutral tones
If the fluorescent trend isn’t for you, the good news is that warm neutrals are in this A/W. Following the popularity of beige tones in the summer, these shades appear to be here to stay. Neutral and earthy tones are on the catwalk for all garments, especially outerwear.
- Statement tights
Stay warm and stay fashionable with a pair of patterned or colourful tights. Luxury brands such as Balenciaga and Fendi have been accessorising with statement tights, however there is no need to blow the budget, with plenty of high street stores stocking lower-priced options too.
- Waist belts
This simple accessory quite literally pulls together an outfit. As oversized clothing is still all over the catwalk, a waist belt is the perfect way to make an oversized outfit a little more form-fitting and flattering.
- Puffy shoulders
Balloon sleeves are a staple trend this year, and now they’re getting even bigger, with puffy shoulders taking centre stage. A puffy shouldered dress is the perfect piece for all of your upcoming Christmas parties.
- Floor-length coats
The heavy rain this winter is no match for this floor-sweeping outerwear. Again, oversized is the way to go this season, with stunning patterned and plain trench coats gracing a multitude of luxury catwalks.
