Trend Report: Autumn 2017 Trends (Part 1)
While we are sad to say that summer is nearing its end, we are excited for the new season that is bringing in new trends, styles and silhouettes for us to wear.
As the cooler weather approaches, styles are looking to the past for inspiration and are combining the perfect blend of feminine silhouettes, strong jewel tones and bohemian prints that are clashed with luxe casuals and sporty staples.
If you’re unsure about what you should be wearing this Autumn, read on as we share with you part 1 of the biggest trends for Autumn 2017.
Vintage Romance: An overtly ladylike mood inspires an array of delicate feminine detailing this season. This trend is all about pretty silhouettes with touches of lace and crochet, floral embroidery and prints and gold lurex touches.
Bohemian Rhapsody: The 1970’s theme continues on from S/S16 but is slightly toned down for the cooler season this year. We see the brighter shades of summer being replaced with toned down ginger and muted neutrals worn back with dark basics. Floral prints continue to drive print design, but with a furnished chintzy look for a bold statement.
Winter Wines: Deepened rich berry tones create a warming impression for A/W 17. From plum to red wine, these autumnal shades give an air of sophistication. Worn head-to-toe or paired with lilac, blue and brown, contrasting or tonal colour combinations inject a contemporary attitude.
Feature Sleeves: The bell sleeve trend is injecting a little romance into your style and we couldn’t love this trend more! This flare detail on sleeves, which can be seen in addition to lattice necklines, cutouts and off-the-shoulder styles, is constructed in flowing jerseys and is a must-have in everyone’s wardrobe!
Fluidity: A new trend, this one is all about mixing 90’s grunge with luxe fabrications and metallics for a pretty feminine look. This trend sees new fabrications really shine, with luxurious drapey satins, crushed velvet, pleating and shiny metallic all taking centre stage. Think long slip dresses, or camis with minimal structure and luxe fabrics. Yes please!
Modern Leisure: Yes! One of our favourite trends is back! Infusing sporty laid-back looks into the new season, this season, comfort is king and we aren’t complaining! Active inspired silhouettes like bomber jackets, shirt dresses, joggers and cargo pants take centre stage, using luxurious colours and fabrications. These items will be your everyday favourites!
