MY FAVOURITE AUTUMN / WINTER 2014 TRENDS
There are so many Autumn / Winter 2014 trends catching my eye right now but the ones that really tickle my fancy are Sweet Sixties, Designer Normcore, XXL Coats, Ponchos and Something Blue.
|L - R Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Saint Laurent|
I'm really looking forward to investing in a few key pieces this season including a structured A-line Shift, luxe polo necks and knee-high shiny leather boots. Nothing screams Sweet Sixties like mini-skirts, patent Mary-Janes and lots of pastel colours. I'm very exciting about this trend and we are spoilt for choice with so many great looks to be found on the high street.
Each year I go in search of the perfect statement coat, this season is no different. The catwalk and high streets are brimming with super coats from blanket coats to chunky faux-furs to full length patch work designs. I love the eternal classic ¾ length coat with its defined waist line, so feminine and elegant. With so many XXL coats to choose from, how is a girl ever just going to decide on one!!!!
|L - R Etro, Roberto Cavalli, Burberry Prorsum|
The Poncho... Is it to cool for school? I predict that this iconic piece will be a key garment this season. Its like a chic blanket but I'm guessing it will feature at every school gate this autumn/winter. Every Yummy Mummy will be looking sophisticated and stylish with little or no effort, school runs will never be as easy!!!
|L-R, Haider Ackermann, Hermès,Ralph Lauren.|
I will always love tailoring, some might find it boring but not me. This winter, suits take on a masculine edge, as girls walked the runway in boyfriend-borrowed ensembles. The trend for classically tailored suits was seen at Haider Ackermann, Hermès and Ralph Lauren, but in my opinion the queen of the suit has to be the stunning Roz Purcell.
Blue has fought back on the A/W14 Catwalks from cobalt's to teals and everything in between. I too will be taking my cobalt blue and teals with me into the autumn/winter season. I still love my cobalt blue dress from Closet and had so much fun styling it for a photo shoot with Saibh Egan Photography this summer. The teal accessories compliment the look and this outfit is going to be perfect for going out for dinner with friends this autumn/winter.
So much fun and fashion to look forward to this autumn / winter
