Some of us are not lucky enough to fly around the world attending NYC, Milan and Paris Fashion Week (yet). So, if your anything like me, you are busy scrolling through your Vogue Runway App, obsessing over what should filter into high street fashion stores pretty soon (give Zara a week) …
Want to know what was hot on the runway for AW 18/19? I’ve got you!
1) Animal Print
I know I keep going on about using animal print, but this is perfect evidence as to why you should listen to me ;) From leopard to zebra and tiger, wild stripes and spots covered the runway this season. Oh look, another thing I have said before (call me WGSN), head to toe animal print is a total THING. I dare you.
2) Check Mate
Checks in all many forms is a definite ‘yaas’ for this season. From the very bold school girl check, to the subtler suit check, you need at least one of these in your wardrobe.
3) Rust, with a touch of 70’s
Some nostalgia always filters its way back onto the runway, and this season the 70’s makes a ‘rusty’ appearance. Whether you are going for the belted 70’s buckle coat or the sporty jersey dress just remember it needs to be some sort of variation of rust/caramel/camel (whatever you want to call it).
4) Head Gear & Hoods
Whether it’s a balaclava, funky hat or even a hood – covering your head is this season’s biggest accessory trend. Your ears will be totally toasty, such a win!
The fabric of the season? Leather! Coming in all forms, leather skirts, dresses, coats and trousers rocked the runway. Sophisticated and chic, leather shows you mean business!
6) Shimmy Shimmy Shake
No, it’s not 2050 yet, but let’s pretend and dress like a lady from the future, right?! Invest in a slash of silver and turn up your trend. If you’re not ready to wrap yourself in foil (#fashun), then accessorize with silver boots or a bag.
