Thanks to the UK’s lack of summer weather, we’ve been ready for autumn since at least July. Thoughts of cosy scarves and pumpkin spice lattes quickly replaced any dreams of sunbathing in our back garden with an ice-cold Kopparberg. Just hurry up and get colder already!
Velvet, vampy lace and darker colour palettes always make an appearance in autumn winter fashion, but we’ve spotted a few emerging trends on the Looker app that we know will solve those inevitable ‘what to wear this autumn’ worries.
Our love affair with stripes will always endure, regardless of the season. While we’d usually reach for an oversized striped knit as soon as the temperature hits below 10°c, for winter 2017, we’ll do Barney Stinson proud and ‘Suit up!’ instead. Replicate Hollie’s look and pair your stripey tux with black separates, a baker boy hat and a single pop of colour for the perfect take on smart-caj.
Millennial pink has ruled for seasons now, but it looks like this unisex pink shade finally has some competition in the form of bolder green shades – Pantone dubbed it 2017’s colour of the year. Here at Looker, we’ve been subtly injecting green into our wardrobes via an earring or clutch bag, but for those who aren’t afraid to wear block-colour like Zoë, colour clash with another primary hue – Solange Knowles would be so proud.
So far, 2017 has been all about the baker boy hat with Bella Hadid rarely parting ways with hers. While we’re still partial to a baker boy, we’ve got a feeling berets will swoop in and steal their place as the headwear du jour. Do like Sarah by and pick out vibrant tint. Complete your outfit by opting for checks over stripes to avoid looking like a Parisian cliche. If you’re concerned about how to style transitional fashion, hats (and accessories in general) are the ideal way to dip your toe into trends – and keep your head warm in the inevitable autumn wind.
Kendall Jenner recently brought the British high-street to a standstill when she was papped with a £39 furry Topshop bag instead of her usual Fendi or Gucci totes. Since then, we’ve wanted colourful faux fur everything – whether it’s the finishing touch to a pair of shoes a lá Rebekah or a statement furry Shrimp’s coat, it’s going to be the centrepiece of our A/W wardrobe.
Classic black jeans no longer seem to be cutting it! Instagram has been awash with all kinds of statement trousers, from kaleidoscopic shades to Mick Jagger-esque prints. Liven up a winter’s day and stay ahead of AW Trends by taking Hollie’s lead and embracing your most vibrant pair of trews.
Extravagant sleeves have transitioned from adorning crisp white shirts to chunky knitwear. The slouchy feel of Esther’s sleeves perfectly contrasts with the delicate lace of her trousers. It might only be August, but the pairing of red with green is giving us some serious Christmas day outfit inspo.
