There’s a flare of excitement lingering in the air…. Autumn’s new pieces have arrived and they’re looking pretty fantastic. Chunky knits and jumbo cords with a 70’s state of mind, plus red is taking over as the colour du jour. Who’s in for the addiction?
We love a new season: It becomes the perfect time to try some fresh trends, right? For everyone who can’t wait to go shopping, here is you’re A/W17 fashion manifesto preview.
I Will Become a Hat Person

Yes, we will give those Dior berets a whirl, and you will swap your plain fail-safe jeans for some Italian chic pattern cords styled to perfect for the ages. You’ll finally find the colour that’s so you and trade in your basic pea coat for a jazzy new model. Why? Because it’s a new fashion season and, if the shows can teach us anything new, it’s that switching things up every now and again is not only a positive thing, but it’s also quite easy to do. Your addictions are as follows….

I Will Revisit the Slouch Boots of Seasons Past
They’re back, and bolder than ever. Saint Laurent even had the nerve to cover them in sparkly crystals for a full fashion throwback. If shinning like an electric diamond diva isn’t on your menu, don’t stress lovelies! You can pick up a pair of slouchy beautiful boots for fall in good old fashioned neutral colours. You can’t go wrong with black.
I Will Not Write Off Old Knitwear

In fashion, a lot of designers prefer to rework past styles and make them highly relevant once again. This is the same case when it comes to giving cardies cachet again. Fall came ready-bobbled, which means it’s acceptable to revisit that soft one at the back of the wardrobe, right? Pick a cardigan you can easily just throw on and go no matter the occasion.

Pick a hot colour and dress from top to toe in its various tones. Remember to offset with one contrasting item to avoid the whole crayon look. In this case, it is all about ravishing red so give it a go and be brave, sexy, and even more gorgeous!
I Will Invest in A Suit

Suiting is trending. Has there ever been a time to ditch your casual wear and start dressing like the boss you’ve always wanted to be? A power suit can defiantly be a game changer. With simple versatility to boost your wardrobe this season.

I Will Reconsider Corduroy

Seventies disco vibes are hot right now. Just ask Chloe, Prada or any other label that brought this fabric back for A/W17 with a fire start to the season. If this fabric makes you nauseated, the best advice on how to introduce it without becoming sickened, is to work it out with a stylish jacket, or skirt. This way you don’t let the fabric wear you.

I Will Buy a Statement Coat
Your go-to coats are tres chic. But for A/W17, there are superior options-glossy macs, embellished bikers, even quilted ones that scream a classic look. Showcase your own personal style with an eye-catching coat that will have people envious for days.
I Will Not Wear a Coat Properly

Shrug it nonchalantly off your shoulders while walking the hectic city streets. Go all out glam and wear just your coat like a dress to a cocktail or fashion event. Or wear it off the shoulder completely for your street style photo moment.

I Will Accept Chain Mail as A Party Season Favourite

As everyone from the catwalk including Isabel Marant SS17 will attest, chain mail is edgier than sequins. If you wish for a badass look make your night outfit super fierce.
I Will Coordinate with My Wallpaper
The brightest new-season prints are borrowed from interiors. Who knew that something old fashioned like wallpaper could inspire such a floral fashion plate, filled with desirable textures we can’t wait to sport this fall.
