As the Autumn/Winter season sets in it’s time to start accumulating staple pieces for you’re A/W wardrobe. One of the main patterns this season is tartan which means the grunge/punk look is back. Although it is quite a busy print don’t be scared to wear it. If you aren’t so confident about your bottom half then don’t try to wear the trends with tartan trousers or skirt, opt for a loose tartan shirt teamed with black leggings, or jeggings and long boots to create a slim silhouette.
Oversized is also a key trend this season and not only is it practical for keeping you warm but it also means that you can say goodbye to the figure-hugging midi dresses that were all the rage during the Summer. Be careful though not to drown yourself in clothes though, it is best to choose either an oversized jacket, wide leg baggy trousers, an oversized knit or a flowing skirt. Combining two or more of the above will not accentuate any part of your figure and you risk making yourself look bigger than you are in reality.
As the Christmas season creeps ever closer so does the opulence trend. The main themes to keep in mind to rock this trend are heavy embellishment, embroidery and adding a bit of glitz to any outfit. Making an outfit look luxurious however does not mean that both your jewellery and outfit need to be as embellished as each other. Again, the most important thing here is decide where you want the trend to show, if you’re top heavy opt for wearing the trend on your bottom half or keep it to just your accessories.
Scarfs are always a hit in the Autumn/Winter so if you’re even in doubt invest in a couple of on-trend scarfs that will show of the styles without being too bold, they are also perfect for masking any lumps or bumps around your middle.
