We’re getting closer to autumn and winter whether we like it or not, and we all know that means one thing for our wardrobes; it’s time for an update! Your fashion collection will no doubt start to transform into pieces more suitable for the upcoming season, but how do you know what to look out for?
As we say goodbye to summer trends, we open the door on autumn and winter and embrace a whole new set of trends. Autumn/winter 2017 fashion trends are already emerging and landing on our rails, revealing which are the key pieces to include this season. So, make sure your collection is ready with our AW17 preview.
Key trends to look out for
The catwalks this season have revealed a few central styles that you should expect to see in the coming months. Space-age fabrics were favoured at Chanel and Christopher Kane used iridescent foil to add high shine, while Miu MIu and Fendi went big on patent and PVC within their collections.
Fashion labels Roksanda and Preen championed colour block dressing, offsetting the look with one accessory in a contrasting shade. Red was seemingly the colour of choice across more than one look.
Tailored clothing has made somewhat of a comeback this season too, but this time the focus is on fitted jackets with less shoulder-padding than the last visit. This was seen at both Celine and Stella McCartney shows.
AW17 sees 3 major shifts in our fashion choices; the most obvious one is the bigger emphasis on outerwear. It’s the season where we all wrap up as the temperatures begin to plummet as we get closer to December. The light summer jackets are put to the back of the wardrobe in favour for more substantial coats.
Both the autumn and winter months were made for layering, finished off with perfectly with a coat or jacket for protection from the elements. From relaxed and easy to wear designs, to structured statement coats, it’s something that your AW17 collection simply won’t be complete without.
Key pieces such as this crepe longline jacket are perfect for transitioning your collection into the new season.
