“Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits”. Samuel Butler, The Way of All Flesh
Fall has finally arrived! As with any new season, it’s always a great time to make a fresh start. There’s nothing like looking ahead to next season for a bit of fashion inspiration.
Now is the time to be you—take A/W 17’s trends and make them your own. Mix and match if you want to. Wear them head to toe if you want to. Don’t be afraid to step out of the norm—individualism is seriously on trend.
In some of the previous posts I shared my thoughts on Fall/Autumn 2017 Fashion trends and hues, here and here. Today I wanted to talk about transitioning our sun kissed summer look into cold Fall/Winter silhouette.
So grab your cinnamon, maple or pumpkin spice latte and check out my 7 things that will transition any Summer look perfectly for Fall/Winter 2017:
All sorts of blazers, we are talking oversized, asymmetric, fitted and even leisure suits. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different fabrics like velvet or tweed even with a splash of embroidery. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, a blazer is going to be your closet staple this season.
I feel like I should not even mention this but padded shoulders are also and unfortunately coming back. You’re not borrowing from the boys this season but from the men. Grandpas, to be exact.
Enormous, Oversized Totes and Shoulder Bags
Ladies, rejoice! Gone are the days you had to squeeze your life into a tiny handbag. AW17 is all about the bigger the better!
These Boots trends were made for walking. This season we will see short, tall, shiny, matte, black, acid-bright, heavily embroidered, glitter all over —literally any boot permutation seems permissible.
Guys remember that a good boot can instantly transform any look into the perfect fall look.
Fashion scarves 2017 will attract many fashionistas. This marvellous wardrobe attribute allows being more attractive, beautiful and stylish. Today scarves are not used only to keep us warm, but also to add uniqueness to look.
Scarves are available in different amazing colors, materials, prints and sizes to help you select what makes you more gorgeous and what matches the clothes you have at your wardrobe. I really will have to work on my scarf wearing skills.
It was fashionable Fall/Autumn 2016 and this trend remains strong in 2017. Blackcurrant, plum, aubergine, burgundy, claret, red – this season’s favourite lipstick hues are decidedly dark. A bold dark lip makes a huge statement and will never fail to add some edge to any look
I would strongly advise to keep skin bare and eyes minimal to leave lusciously deep lips to take the focus.
DO add tights to your summer frocks for a smooth transition between seasons.
Throw on opaque tights under your pretty dress, and your friends will be too distracted by your put-together. From the acid green and burgundy shades to the lacy black fishnet-inspired styles.
Introduce dark colours
One of the quickest ways to shift your closet from summer to fall/winter is to change up your colour palette. Instead of wearing your flowery summer bright colours and pastel tones, swap them out for darker and warmer colours, and you are ready for fall.
