Autumn is slowly creeping up on us and we can definitely feel it in the mixed bag of weather we’ve had recently. We don’t know about you, but we’re pretty excited to embrace the colder days and some new cosy trends, especially from witnessing what’s to come from the catwalks.
The AW19 womenswear collections showcased fresh new talent and a whole lot of style. Enormous bags were everywhere, shoulders were puffy, dresses were jaw-dropping and there was a wealth of feathers. AW19 is undoubtedly going to be a wonderful, wearable season of fashion. We’ve broken down the most dominant and accessible trends to emerge from the various fashion shows and handpicked our favourites to help you on your way – enjoy!
Christmas party dressing is set to become a whole lot more interesting this season as sequins make a dazzling entrance at the AW19 catwalk shows. Not only sequins but sparkle and glitter were also abundant, spotted on everything from evening gowns to accessories. Stand out from the crowd and dress ready for a daytime disco by adding a little sparkle to your wardrobe later this year.
Now this is a trend we cannot wait to hit the stores. Plumes of feathers were in abundance on the catwalks this year. Add a bit of zhuzh to your look this winter by experimenting with playful textures and tones. Embrace the bulk by pairing a feathered jacket atop a sleek little number for an eye-catching moment. If you’re feeling daring, go full-throttle with a feathered dress for drama all night long! There is no denying that feathers are certainly the fancy touch you’ll be adding to your wardrobe very soon.
This year, the catwalk saw the classic cosy cardigan make an appearance. Sometimes, all it takes is weeks of fashion shows to remind us that many of the best things we own are hiding at the back of our wardrobes. From oversized to fitted and collared to buttoned, there are countless ways to wear your favourite cardi. Get digging girls!
THE BOLD SHOULDER
Drum-roll please… shoulder pads are back, baby! This has to be one of the key trends to have on your radar. The AW19 runway saw the biggest, baddest and puffiest shoulders being strutted down the catwalk. Make a statement this season by adding some drama to your outfit.
SHOW STOPPING GOWNS
Dresses have finally been given the kind of airtime they fully deserve. If AW19 shows are anything to go by, making an entrance will be made easy by heading to the shops and slipping into the biggest dress imaginable. There is no need to add to this look, the dress is guaranteed to be the only item you need.
LITTLE AND LARGE BAGS
If you’re only planning on buying one statement item next season, make sure it’s a standout bag. From the teeny tiny bags being showcased down the catwalk to the huge holdall bags able to house everything you need, these bags sure are worthy of starting a conversation!
