Ahh, autumn. The season of spiced lattes, tumbling golden leaves and cosy nights in front of the fire. As we continue to enjoy this unexpected (but not entirely unwelcome!) last minute wave of heat and sunshine, stocking up on sunscreen is no doubt taking priority over planning your fall fashion wardrobe.
We all know, however, that British weather can change at the drop of a floppy hat, so Flair Designer Wear have put together an inside look into some of this year’s key fall fashion trends and how to make that tricky transition from summer to autumn with style and ease.
Watch Out Amelia Earhart!
Shearling Jackets are flying in this year and designers have taken on the classic look with a contemporary approach to style and colour, including very on-trend cropped and cocoon silhouettes. Elegantly drape the jacket over your shoulders as a nod to the summer heat.
The Ever Faithful Plaid
From duster coats to thick knit jumpers, this versatile pattern is returning to our fall wardrobe with schoolgirl and western style influences. If this playful approach isn’t really your style, choose a clean-cut plaid dress or skirt and pair with knee high boots for a chic yet practical look to tackle those rainy days.
Popular all year round and reinvented for the new season, florals have been seen in adventurous metallic tones and more traditional romantic styles across the runway. Perfect for afternoon tea or for a stroll around the city, match a floral blouse with a velvet skirt to capture that bohemian air. Swap over opaque for thicker tights when the chilly evenings start to set in.
The Eighties have come strutting back to town in their stiletto heels to take the season by storm. Sharp and sophisticated tailoring with asymmetric cuts and ruching are the name of the game this autumn. A perfect transition look from day to night, team strong shoulders with bright pops of colour to stand out from the crowd.
