Summer hasn’t even really arrived yet, although it’s been really, really nice this week! But, it’s not too soon to be thinking about your autumnal wardrobe. Once the summer has passed dressing gets tricky. The summer stuff returns to the box under the bed and warmer alternatives are needed. Belted coats, dusky blues and vintage-inspired fur coats are all returning to our wardrobes this season.
Trilogy Stores have provided me with the lowdown on the latest on autumnal trends for 2017. By following their guide, you’ll be able to make the most of autumnal-chic, and glide effortlessly into the winter months without any fashion faux pas. Sweet.
Independent and powerful
The female suit is the ultimate look that says ‘I am powerful’. This trend is set to go global by September.
It’s power-dressing for 2017. Elegantly designed slacks and pressed double-breasted jackets are all the rage this autumn; together with pronounced shoulders and shoulder-width trousers, the suit helps to reappropriate a masculine look for the female fashion-forward.
The cutting-edge jacket
The nylon coat is the transitional outerwear that is versatile to almost all occasions. These futuristic, cutting edge jackets can be worn casually with a pair of designer skinny jeans and flats, or can be worn in the evening with a pair of high boots or heels. Blacks, browns, and greens are all popular this autumn – so wear subtle colours underneath to pull off a look that’s striking without having to make the effort.
The new ‘it’ colour
As the weather changes and the nights get cooler, we say goodbye to our eye-catching pinks, and dashing scarlets – and when the leaves begin to change colour, dusky modest blues are the definition of autumn. Labelled as the new ‘it’ colour, the moody notes incorporated by dark blues within an outfit can really make a lasting impression.
Whether you want to be subtle or striking, you can incorporate blue into your outfit. Wear a pale blue shirt with slim-fitting grey trousers for an outfit that is subtle yet striking, or why not try a brighter coloured blue mac to create a contrast between your outfit and the autumnal environment around you?
Show off your waistline
A belted coat is perfect during autumn, as it is an ideal statement piece to keep warm whilst strolling through the park. Expressing effortless sophistication, the belt adds and extra layer of depth to your coat and helps to define your waistline in a way that is flattering.
