My Favourite Winter Trends

 Whether you’re in search of an opportunity to escape the cold for a beach holiday or have already put up your Christmas tree, you can’t hide from the fact that winter is officially upon us. For me, this much-awaited transition to cold weather fashion could not have come soon enough. In the colder months, the re-emergence of certain pieces (i.e. boots, coats) are pretty inevitable. However, I love to be kept on my sartorial toes, and this season’s boots and coats particularly integrate elements of peculiarity. If you’ve been following my website or socials for a while then you will already know of my constant attempt to transcend fashion boundaries. I always say that if everyone likes the way I dress then I’m not doing enough. So actually I embrace the horrified twitter replies whenever I wear clogs or layer 2 different handbags. This season’s trends encapsulated everything I like from a fashion statement – confidence and eccentricity. So keep scrolling to find out the Fall/Winter ‘18 trends that I can’t wait to experiment with.

Autumn Layering

During the Autumn/Winter 2018 Paris Fashion Week, “protection” was the buzzword circulating around all the shows. By discussing the idea of clothes as “armour,” designers such as Balenciaga and Chanel introduced a new approach to autumn layering. This season, puffer coats also got a makeover by incorporating feminine touches and detailed tailoring. A vibrant, oversized puffer coat like the one I’m wearing below is exactly the kind of bold “protection” I’ll be channelling all winter.

 

 

 

Animal Print

Zebra or tiger, cheetah or leopard, snake or crocodile – animal prints are in this season! This fashion-forward trend was seen in collections as differing as Victoria Beckham and Ashley Williams. Whether you opt for a silk, snakeskin blouse or faux leopard-print from head to toe, you’re guaranteed to turn heads with this wild trend.

Leather

The reigning textile this season? Leather. From Hermes’ sophisticated ankle-length skirt to the striking forest-green leather jacket debuted by Givenchy, I can’t get enough of the versatility and timelessness of leather. I especially loved the alluring, ankle-length leather dress I saw at the Loewe A/W 18/19 Fashion Show. If Loewe approves, so do I.

Tweed

We often associate tweed with the “hyper-elegance” displayed at Chanel shows. Yet this season, designers showed tweed as something more unexpected. Tweed was the used fabric for a sporty roll-neck, a leather skirt, and a structural dress. This only shows that tweed is no longer a symbol for your grandma’s church clothes or Coco Chanel’s legacy. Dare I say that tweed has been given a millennial renaissance.
