We may be in the heat of summer, but any dedicated follower knows that fashion waits for no one. The autumn and winter seasons are just around the corner, and the catwalks of the world are already jumping with the new trends and hot looks which will dominate our streets. While the most prominent designers are often trying to provoke conversation with their pieces, it is usually a sign of what is to come. To help you get ahead of the game, here are some of the biggest fashion trends set to hit our streets in autumn and winter 2019, fresh from the catwalk.
Big Statement Dresses
The big takeaway from the runways was that big dresses (and we mean very big!) are going to take a leading role this autumn/winter season. Subtlety or blending in with the crowd is not an option if we see anything like the incredible creations offered by Roksanda, Tomo Koizumi, Vaquera, or Molly Goddard. Bright colors, complex prints, extravagant details, and exceptional proportions come together to ensure no one will miss your entrance this season.
Eccentric Trouser Suits
Trouser suits are sometimes viewed as workwear or ever a conservative choice, especially when tailored and restrictive. However, this year, the trouser suit is undergoing a makeover as it is fused with psychedelic patterns and quirky shapes which enable self-expression like the outfit has never done before.
Punk Rebellion is Back (Again)
It seems that the punk era never truly leaves us as there is always something to rebel against and subvert. Military outerwear like those available at jack1t.com and combat boots paired with sexy and feminine garments make a timeless combination yet again.
Prairie dresses are a wonderful addition to this year’s look with a real vintage feel in subtle but beautiful fabrics. With longer balloon sleeves they make an excellent choice for the colder months, but the lace-up or corseted waist lends that feminine touch. These dresses are romantic and gothic all at the same time and will flatter just about any figure.
Bucket hats have been making an appearance on the streetwear scene for years, but they seem on track to have a much more definite presence this year. Paris Fashion Week featured bucket hats by Dior, Nina Ricci, and Valentino in everything from patent leather to luxe canvas. The hats themselves were often paired with tailored trench coats.
Less Focus on Logos
There seems to be far less importance placed on the large designer logos and monograms in favor of a more minimalist style. Patterns and prints as the main focus of many outfits, which is a significant change to see.
A Quick Note About Colours… We’ve grown used to the idea of sticking with autumnal and dark shades for the last months of the year, but it seems things are taking a turn. Where are they headed? In any direction you like, it looks, as the latest shows were popping with everything from neon, florals and metallic to the traditional yellows, oranges, reds, and browns.
