With the darker nights drawing in and crisp winter mornings just around the corner, the time has come to start planning our winter fashion agenda once again.
If you’re thinking about key garments to incorporate into your wardrobe this Autumn/Winter 2017, these three trends will ensure that you spend those precious pennies wisely this season.
Whether you opt for a sleek pair of skinny jeans or an oversized jacket, this is the season’s hottest new texture. As demonstrated by fashion supernovas Rihanna, Rita Ora and even Queen B (Beyonce that is), the vinyl trend is a bold, yet brilliant, statement that you will not regret buying in to.
For a relaxed approach, team a pair of skinny or straight leg vinyl trousers with your favourite band t-shirt and heeled ankle boots. This will provide an edgy aura while still capturing that important female sensuality.
Just be sure to note that this is not a trend for the faint hearted!
The Puffer Jacket
Already pushing its way into the limelight of major high street brands (including Urban Outfitters, Nike and Zara) the puffer jacket is a must for lovers of both style and practicality.
The variety of colours available, in almost every shade of the rainbow, is one of the best aspects of this trend; tailoring to every woman’s personality.
With a choice between fitted pastel numbers or a bright and baggy appearance, the puffer can be effortlessly added to any outfit and occasion this autumn- whether it be an afternoon stroll along the beach or using the garment as a safety blanket when leaving the club in the dead of winter!
Recently transformed from ski staple into streetwear saviour, the puffer jacket is the chicest trend in the ‘sports luxe’ hype right now. So, be sure to snatch your favourite first.
Check clothing may not be new to fashion, but high street giants are completely transforming the way we have sceptically viewed the print in the past.
Previously reserved for office wear and woolly scarves, the pattern is having a new lease of life. Checks have been seen gracing everything and anything: from monochrome culottes to laidback sliders. The versatility of this trend should not go unnoticed!
Head over to Asos for an alternative spin on tying checks into your look; their edgy bandeau jumpsuit will have everyone’s eyes on you for all the right reasons.
Looking for an everyday hero? River Island has scored top marks yet again with their ‘Burberry inspired’ coat. A perfect buy for the chilly months ahead. Complete with bow detail on the sleeve cuffs, this detail adds diversity from the classic outline of the winter coat.
Whether you strive for statement or subtlety, checks are back with a bang this season. If you are going to bypass any trend this autumn, be sure that it is not this one!
For extra style points, try layering checks on top of even more checks like @gracefvictory, who rocks this funky co-ord with confidence. Grace perfectly demonstrates the mantra of going bold with your look, a great message for any aspiring fashion gurus!
