The season’s are changing and it’s time for the warmer clothes to make a reappearance. If you’re looking for some Autumn Winter 2014 Fashion trends inspiration to transition you into the new season, here are the latest trends to keep you looking stylish this A/W.
Along with the usual reintroduction of black into the everyday wardrobe (for some of us it never left *cough*), hues of blue and grey will be back in force. Think midnight blues and teals, rather than navy mixed with tones of heavy grey.
Caramel, Browns and Mustard will also be a strong theme this winter, easily mixed and matched for a retro 70’s look.
Additionally, jewel tones of burgundy red and emerald green are the statement colours for evening wear so I predict we’ll be seeing a lot of these around Christmas time!

Monochrome (black and white) and houndstooth patterns are still classics and will carry through to Spring ’15.

A lot of faux fur is hitting the highstreet including garments made entirely of ‘hairy’ fabrics. Not only gilets but entire dresses and skirts made of faux fur will be available. At least there’s no chance we’ll freeze in short skirts anymore!
A lot of layering is also going to be seen, with lace and sheer panels worn with contrasting heavier fabrics to create eclectic looks. Embellishment is also due to be a huge trend this coming season, with sequins and beading on statement pieces adding interest and texture.
Leather is also playing a big part this coming season, look out for garments with a hint of leather, e.g. cuffs or collars, to update classic pieces.
Other trends to look out for:
Outerwear – Padded and boxy style jackets will be keeping you warm and toasty this coming winter.
Over the Knee Boots – Flat heeled over the knee boots will keep you bang on trend and look great with shorter skirts and over leggings.
Pointed heels – will be THE must have shape for this coming season. Low or high heels, keep the toe pointed. Classic patent black will see you through most occasions.
Trainers – a must have for most wardrobes, if you haven’t already humped on the bandwagon, now’s the time to pick up some Converse or Vans!
Cleated soles and chunky boots – This 90’s trend is back and bold – snow white chunky heeled boots are a perfect winter accessory.
Cut and Form
Simple shapes in interesting fabrics such as A-line skirts will be making an appearance.
Pleats will be adding volume to tops, dresses and skirts. Topshop have some amazing pieces that look almost sculpted!
Midi length skirts and palazzo style formal trousers will add a flattering edge to winter fashion and are perfect for work and play.
