Look glamorous & fabulous this Fall-Winter ’14
Autumn and winter are my absolute favourite seasons. What’s not to love about them? The hot coffees, sitting snug in front of the fireplace and reading books. Well, I can think of something else, The Fall-Winter Fashion trends. Yes! It’s that time of the year, again.
Experimenting with new materials on vintage designs, reviving the sixties and creating a more manly look for women; designers have out-done themselves this fall.
While the clothes are outstanding, the addition of sunnies to go along with the outfit is what excited me the most. Shrouding through hundreds of designs, I found some of my favourite trends for this season. Let’s have a look.
The Flirty Sixties
Bold prints, sporty patterns, mini-skirts & dresses, knee-high boots and accessories that remind us of the 60s, too much of Mad Men? Well, I’m talking about the trends of Fall/Autumn-Winter and it looks as though the sixties’ flirty trends are back and here to stay. Top designer brands like Louis Vuitton, Valentino, YSL, Miu Miu, Ralph Lauren and Gucci are all paying tribute to the chic and carefree decade that was the Swinging Sixties.
I’m just glad that the sixties are back with a bang simply because I adore the oversized round sunnies. Now, adding a little modish touch to the retro-inspired eyewear, they’re to die for.
Sleek and Slim
Cropped right above the ankles, the stovepipe slacks are the way forward this season for men. The slim and sleek looking pants which were a popular trend back in the sixties are making a comeback this fall. For a chic looking ensemble, wear it with bigger and bulkier layers on top. As seen here, A.Sauvage’s Autumn-Winter Collection.
Wear your slim pants with a nice, somber long coat. You can also opt for a velvet jacket which will make you look suave. Or rather opt for a biker jacket to create an edgy and cool look. Lastly, add a little bit of vintage mod in your ensemble with a pair retro-inspired eyewear.
All about the jackets
Orange is the new black and it is the trendy colour right now. Seen here in the first image is one of Oliver Spencer’s creations from his new fall-winter collection. Well-paired with a trendy wayfarer sunglasses and navy blue pants.
Also seen in the image are baseball jackets and big, slouchy coats. Yes, they are making another round this season again.
This season models are walking down the runway in boyfriend-borrowed ensembles. It’s all about the masculinity edge for women. Tailored pant suits were a popular trend among designers in this year’s Milan Fashion Week, Fall-Winter collection. They were also seen in top designer brands like Ralph Lauren and Stella McCartney.
For that modishly sexy look, add a pair of oversized boxy sunnies.
Here comes the Coats
Voluminous jackets are set to be the trendiest thing this season. Along with these jackets are geometric patterns and monochromes, the prints of this season will be hypnotic.
While the monochromic jacket by Dries Van Noten is very modish, the orange round sunglasses blend in perfectly creating a chic look. On the other hand, the black duvet ensemble by Kenzo along with the dark lens rectangle sunnies creates a mysterious looks.
This winter, men’s jackets are less structured. Simple yet elegant, these jackets will last for many seasons to come.
Gieves & Hawkes’ green ensemble is smart and simple. On the other hand the check jacket gives out a classy touch to the casual look. The boxy oversized bag is a must have accessory for men this season. To finish off the classy-casual look, don a pair of wayfarer sunglasses.
A break for your feet
Rejoice! Comfy sneakers are making a comeback this season. Top designers are making them the footwear of the moment. For all the sporty-chic fashionistas, look out for these bold and stylish sneakers. Look comfortably chic, wear a pair of denims with a stearling jacket and add a pair of aviators.
For him and her
One of the most striking features of the fall-winter collection is the bold prints and designs. With the animal print still a hot trend for women’s clothing, this elegant reptile skin coat paired with an oversized rectangle sunglasses at Milan Fashion Week definitely stood out.
This James Long ensemble looks like it came straight out of a sci-fi movie. The raincoat jacket and the perfect square shape sunglasses give it a futuristic look.
Wraps and ponchos will be a hot trend this season for both men and women. Roberto Cavalli presented his monochromic poncho by adding a touch of sophistication with a fur hood. Flaunt a pair of modish looking sunglasses with this iconic folk style.
Turtlenecks are trending this fall. Fight the cold and protect your neck from the cold wintry breeze. Slip them on under a jacket for a snug fit. They look great with retro-inspired eyewear.
