Hello again! Hopefully my last post on the Autumn-Winter new trends inspired you to start thinking about your wardrobes and what you’ve got that you can carry over or start wearing now. So today I’m going to go over 3 more to add to that list so you can start to consider them.
Trend – Masculine
L-R Marios Schwab, Paul Smith, Topshop Unique, Vivienne Westwood
As Autumn styles roll round I always feel that we lose the floaty, carefree spring silhouettes and head into a more tailored finish. This year the masculine trend has been going strong year after year and become a staple style for girls. This year we are looking at slim leg trousers and pajama trousers as well as cropped styles which were worn with a well-placed ankle strapped shoe.
I have always loved Vivienne Westwood for how she does the mansculine trend as her cuts always allow you to look super feminine at the same time. If you don’t want to go too manish take a leaf out of Topshop Uniques looks with a crop top and a jacket to show off your waistline. Wear with courts or loafers and go for satin, velvet and beading to give a nod to the AW catwalks opulence.
Oversized is a trend I think everyone can appreciate for the days you just don’t fancy restrictive clothing. Think billowing trousers, baggy T-shirt dresses, Jumpers with midi skirts or dresses and cocoon coats. Worried about looking shapeless? Pair oversized jumpers or coats with your skinny jeans or leggings to streamline your look.
A good way to dress up this style is to add in some or this season’s geometric prints or add a touch of glamour with collar necklaces or layer necklaces over each other to add a touch of the layering trend. Keep the look feminine by pairing with heels, whether in the form of lace up boots or girly court shoes.

Autumns palate always heads a bit darker and a clear winner this year seemed to be the purple and berry tones that cascaded down the catwalk. Purple has always been a colour associated with royalty so it will add a bit of luxury to your wardrobe and the best thing is purple is a colour that suits EVERY skin tone and colour as it is a mixture of warm and cool. So whether its Amethyst, Violet or Blackberry get this colour in your wardrobe.
For the colour shy or those of you that are fond of having an all-black wardrobe use your accessories to get an injection of purple to your wardrobe with shoes and bags. And luckily I feel purple is a colour that goes with all metallic tones, but for AW I think I’ll be mixing in a bit gunmetal to give it a grunge feel.
Hope you are enjoying my breakdowns. Let me know how you’ll be considering these trends!
