5 Fashion Trends for Autumn

As Van Gogh once said, “As long as autumn lasts, I shall not have hands, canvas and colours enough to paint the beautiful things I see.” With its ethereal burst of colours and subtle hint of newness, autumn is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and anticipated seasons of the year.

As the arrival of a new season always calls for new fashion trends to accommodate the changing weather and landscape, we’re here to give you the scoop on five of the latest fashion trends that are taking the world by storm this fall.

  • Red

The Barbie pink of summer is on its way out and a new colour is taking centre stage. Red seems to be the colour of the season this year, and we’re not talking about a touch of red to add a pop of colour to your outfit. Rather, designers are opting for bold, blood red from head to toe. This seemed to be the colour of choice on the runways in the various fashion capitals of the world, from Prada to Bottega Veneta, Stella McCartney, Christopher Kane, Victoria Beckham, Di Petsa, Eudon Choi and Alexander McQueen.

  • Businesswear

Another trend to look out for is classic tailoring. Power suits, black ties (even in women’s fashion) and large black or grey coats are making a comeback. Taking a much-needed break from the impractical and over-the-top avant-garde styles of previous seasons, more designers are now opting for classic, wearable clothes that can be worn in everyday life. These staples are not only fashion-forward but are also a sensible choice as the weather grows cooler.

  • Waist-centric Styles

From New York to London and Paris, waist details are taking over. Some of the most popular themes include peplum tops, hourglass silhouettes, chunky or low-waist belts and ruched styles. Peplums, which are certainly not a new trend in the fashion world, have come back with a chic edge to them. They can be paired with matching bottoms like skirts or pants. Grecian-inspired styles such as gathers, ruches and drapes were also seen on the runways and are a much-welcome addition. In fact, according to Tagwalk, draped looks were 20% more popular this season when compared to last season.

  • Super-sized Bags

Several designers now dress their runway models with large, carry-all bags such as handbags, totes and even clutches. Unlike the popular tiny bag trend we’re all accustomed to, these huge bags can fit anything from laptops to large picture frames. Thanks to Ferragamo, Loewe, Jill Sander and Balmain who pushed this trend, we’ll be seeing more chunky bags this fall season.

  • Scarves

Although this trend seems to be more practical than fashionable, designers have taken it to a whole new level. As opposed to plain old, knitted scarves, these new styles come in beautiful, blanket-sized patterns large enough to be worn head-to-toe. The scarf trend is popular with designers like Burberry, Michael Kors, Saint Laurent & Gabriela Hearst, Marni, and Etro.

We hope you’ve gotten some wardrobe inspiration to keep you in style this fall. Remember to stay true to yourself and stay cozy!
