If you’re new round these parts you might not know I’m big on traditions. Since I started blogging I’ve always done a series on this season’s main fashion trends and you lovely people seem to like it. Not one to disappoint you guys, I’ve put together a series of 4 posts throughout September to help you freshen up your wardrobe for Autumn/ Winter 2015.
Today I’m talking about three completely opposite looks and it’s clear to see there is something for everyone.
Embrace your inner Carrie Bradshaw and don pretty tulle skirts as seen in Saint Laurent’s Ready-to Wear collection. That might be all well and good Stateside, were it’s a good few degrees warmer, but here in blighty things might get a bit chilly. Pair your tulle with a nice thick wooly jumper for a day time look or slip a leather jacket on to toughen things up. If the prom queen look isn’t your thing, look to Christopher Kane for a more sophisticated, office-appropriate wrap dress version. But, if you’re feeling extremely brave, make like the fashion pack and wear clashing prints like Miu Miu. Very Cher Horowitz.
You’d be right in being slightly confused, because I was too. I used to think the Boho trend was reserved purely for the festival season, unless your an Olsen twin, in which case it’s year round. But this year, we all can get in on some of the Olsen magic. Make use of your summer maxi dresses and layer them up as seen at Burberry Prorsum. The trick to avoiding looking like you’ve just stepped off a plane from Spain (poet), is to stick to darker tones and heavier materials. I’m a massive fan of Chloe’s long sleeved maxi dress and will be on the look out for a high street dupe. Watch this wardrobe.
If all that 80’s colour has you a bit nervous, fear not, embrace your inner Morticia Addams and embrace the gothic trend. What makes this gothic trend more interesting that previous years is that it’s softer, more feminine. Think Victorian England, with sheer black material mixed with lace and delicate embroidery. Valentino stole the croon for the most hauntingly beautiful gowns, but take inspiration from Alexander McQueen and Giles as both showed strong looks.
Which is your favourite look?
