Autumn/Winter fashion

AW 2016 style trends

There are many styles to watch out for such as the age-old favourite military and even the peplum still has pride of places in our wardrobes for this season, so no need to throw those items out just yet, instead, why not update them by combining them with a new key piece from our top 5 list? Here are the Top 5 key trends for this new season:1. Coats!

Your outerwear is THE first thing that you are noticed for, so an outdated coat or jacket can create the wrong impression from the outset! Coats and jackets for this new up and coming season are bold, patterned and textured to make a real statement!

Never be afraid to experiment with various colors, patterns, and textures and see how brave you can be. This new season’s offerings come in variations of leathers, furs, and over-sized parkas. Make sure you invest if only in one piece this season, make sure it is a statement coat!

2. Layers!

Layers have been in and out of fashion for some time now from the 60’s hippy-dippy era right the way through to modern day and still going strong.

Layering is very popular with the European fashion houses and to achieve the best results you should stick to one or two colour pallets. Avoid different patterns but a couple of textures works well. The leather is very in this season so why not combine floaty chiffon blouses with delicate knitwear for a super snug and warm but edgy fashion twist with a pair of leather trousers?

3. Hats!

Basically, any hat goes this season and as the winter months and windy days creep in, they could not be more welcomed!

A hat can make or break any outfit so be careful to choose one that creates the right look for you. A baseball cap is not for everyone… but a super cute beanie can be sported by most women. Not only are hats one of THE fashion statements for this new fashion season, but they are also warm, practical and can keep a sleek hair cut neat and un-windswept for a fabulous entrance to any event.

4. Colour

Jewel tones have been everywhere on the Autumn/Winter 16 catwalks and in particular Emerald Green is one of THE hottest colours to wear!

If you are looking for an instant style update, then the adage of an emerald green piece of two can instantly transform your wardrobe! If you are rotating a classic look on your regular daily fashion, then why not try a statement handbag, scarf or shoes in a wonderfully bright emerald colour?

5. Animal

Animal prints are yet again popular within the fashionista’s wardrobe this season, in particular, Leopard print is THE top print to be sporting. Leopard prints can be edgy and combined with leathers and other furs excellently. Just one or two pieces should be worn at the same time though to avoid the look of fancy dress or costume,sometimes there is a fine line with high fashion, but if you stick to a statement coat in leopard print, for example, you would tick several fashion boxes for this next season!
