Summer days are finally behind us, which means that you will have to clean up your wardrobe and make room for your favourite sweaters, scarves and coats. Fall and winter are indeed very inspirational, simply because you are doing your best to make those gloomy days at least slightly bearable. Here are five fashion trends that will cheer you up in these cold months, so check them out.
1. Cool Culottes
Culottes are definitely this season’s IT pants, perfect for unpredictable fall weather. Their flattering hemline and versatile shape offer you infinite possibilities for combining. Even though many people think that these are awkward and hard to combine, culottes are actually pretty chic and glamorous – which is why they are a must-have for this season. Balance the wide-leg silhouette with a pair of fabulous stilettos, and your outfit will be a true representative of high-street fashion.
2. Oversized Sweaters
Sweater weather has finally arrived, which means that it is a perfect time for snuggling your head onto your favourite piece of clothing. Oversized sweaters are perfect for fall as well for winter, and there are many reasons for this claim. Especially those with turtleneck will make you feel warm and cosy, even though you are not a fan of this particular shape. If you think that you will look too bulky – don’t worry – just choose the one with a slightly thinner knit.
3. Statement Jewellery
Bling is back this season, and that’s really great news. Signature rings and chunky stones look perfect when combined with aforementioned oversized sweaters. Feminine and sparkly jewellery in Marsala color is absolutely your go-to choice for any outfit. Brooches and big earrings were introduced as must-have pieces for this fall by haute couture brands such as Prada, Balenciaga and Chanel. A pair of boho earrings that come fringed or tasseled will add a touch of glamour to your everyday look. These earrings are definitely a proof that glitz has made a huge comeback.
4. Ethnic Influence
This ultimate fashion trend for fall and winter is an extraordinary mixture of complex patterns and vibrant colours, combined together with leather, fringes and marvelous embroidery. Numerous designers are drawing their inspiration from the exotic cultures of Asia and Africa, which results in amazing collections that can be considered as masterpieces. These amazing items can be combined in a wide range of ways, and you could wear them to a business meeting as well as to a lunch with friends. Depending on the occasion, combine them with basics such as jeans or classical trousers and a simple shirt. Fashion trends inspired by India are particularly eye-catching, because they represent the unique tradition of this Asian country, adjusting it to the world of fashion.
5. Fur Meets Leather Shoes
Leather footwear with fur detail is a major hit this season, since many designers have gone crazy about this latest trend. From fur lined slippers and pointed toe pumps, to ankle booties completely covered in fur - there is no fashionista in this world who would not wear them. They provide a perfect amount of texture to every look, and add a touch of extravaganza to it. These will absolutely make you the center of attention wherever you show up. However, be careful. Just make sure that you are not combining them with another furry piece. Only one fur accent per look is more than enough. After all, you surely don’t want to look ridiculous. Also, it does not matter if you're wearing faux-fur. There's certainly nothing wrong with that.
As you can see, there are various go-to fashion trends that are popular this season. The choice is totally up to you – choose whatever you feel comfortable in, depending on your personal style and preferences. What is certainly sure is that fashion is all about playing and having fun, which is why you have to enjoy and take it to the next level. That’s a key to success.
