As the saying goes in fashion: new season, new trends, but don’t throw away your entire summer wardrobe just yet. Though there are plenty of new fashion delights to feast your eyes (and your cash) on, the biggest trends this season aren’t all that different from those of spring/summer.
While it’s not uncommon for trends to carry through one season and into the next, for autumn/winter 2018 the season’s biggest hits are mere progressions of those from spring/summer. The revitalising shades of lemon that were so popular for spring have transitioned along the colour spectrum to darker shades of mustard for autumn while the tropical fever that took over summer has turned into tropical animal fever in an all-out print masterclass.
Discover these trends and more below and rest happy in the knowledge that they aren’t all that different from last season meaning you can repurpose and restyle some of your favourite summer pieces and still be on trend without the guilt of spending on a new winter wardrobe.
Not quite ready to say goodbye to millennial pink? Prepare to dazzle in a darker, more sumptuous shade this autumn as raspberry becomes the breakout colour of the season.
The end of summer brings about the winter blues, but in the best way. The 1950s powder blue that permeated wardrobes throughout spring/summer darkens to a deeper, richer shade of navy for the season ahead.
No longer warm enough for the cool white linens and cottons of summer, it’s time to break out the knitwear, faux fur and shearling in seventies-esque shades of camel and brown.
Colonel Mustard with a candlestick in the drawing room. Yes, the zesty lemon shades of summer have been laid to rest for autumn and replaced with a richer, rustic shade of mustard that’s sure to revitalise your wardrobe.
Put aside your tropical inspired clothing for something with a bit more oomph this autumn: animal print. But don’t just settle for the traditional leopard print. Instead, opt for more exotic species such as zebra, giraffe and tiger which prowled the catwalks this past February in a kaleidoscope of colours.
