As the last of the summer sunshine slowly dwindles away, and the September leaves begin to fall, we are all reminded that autumn is firmly on the way. Wave goodbye to sun hats, sandals, and summer dresses, it’s time to embrace chic tailored trousers, big chunky knits, and cosy winter coats.
As layering season is officially upon us and London Fashion Week is fast approaching, we couldn’t be more excited to look into some of the A/W trends for 2021. So, without further delay, let’s dive straight in to see what fabulous fashion trends have been forecasted for this year.
An iconic staple that we have seen circle our wardrobes time and time again, animal print seems to be sticking around – and you’ll find no complaints here from us! Pair a long sleeve leopard blouse with black fitted jeans and heeled boots for a simple yet striking look this autumn/winter. Mix and match with a skirt and tights combo or layer with a big wool coat and scarf in the colder months. However you decide to wear animal print this season, you’ll be able to create various versatile outfits around this stand-out trend.
With so many of us returning to the office now after spending over a year stuck indoors in our loungewear, it’s no surprise that power suits and tailoring are taking the A/W catwalks by storm. With more relaxed silhouettes and oversized fits, we’re seeing a more masculine crossover for female suiting this year, which is music to our ears as we get the green light to combine style with comfort. Dress up by teaming sleek tailored trousers with a matching fitted blazer and heels to make a chic return to the office, or pair some sharp-tailored ankle grazers with smart white trainers or flats with an oversized jumper loosely tucked in at the front for a cosy smart-casual effect.
Reminiscent of past summer days, bold block colours are transcending into the autumn/winter months to brighten things up. Adding a pop of colour is a great trick to elevate what would otherwise be an ordinary outfit. If you usually stick to neutral tones and you’re new to the world of whacky colours, why not start small to begin with such as a bright coloured bag or statement earrings? From here you can work up to pairing a bright coloured blazer with denim or even two-toned contrasting colour clashes if you want to go all out. Emerald greens, fuchsia pinks, electric blues, and bright yellows are amongst the most popular bright colour trends that we expect to see creeping into the autumn months.
