A/W ’16 Trend Report…

Hello lovelies! To get ahead early on A/W ’16 trends, I’ve been compiling mood boards from various magazines (mainly Look, Grazia, Hello! Fashion Monthly, Elle and Glamour – these are my favourites) for the coming season. These took a lot of hard work, but were actually really fun to make, as I love doing creative things.

1. Military Goes Royal…

In the coming season, military jackets are turning royal with huge gold buttons and brocade embellishments, as seen at Louis Vuitton and on the catwalk at Dolce and Gabanna.

2. Metallica

Shoppers will turn into magpies next season as they try and get their hands on anything shiny – because the shine is everywhere. Pyjamas, shoes, scaves, waterproof macs, you name it.

3. Brocade Crazy

Brocade is back, especially for dresses – but New Look’s flower brocade rucksack was also a refreshing addition. Be like Léa and Alexa and get a head-start on the trend.

4. Check It Out…

I absolutely love gingham. I don’t care that it’s traditional a summer trend, I will invest in a gingham coat for autumn, and I will wear it all the time.

5. Animal Print

Usually I’m not that big on animal print, as it’s very easy to slip into trashy-territory while wearing it. But I’ve started to like small flashes of leopard – in the coming season I might invest in some leopard jewellery or shoes.

6. Velvet Mania

I have already seen this look appearing in several stores, and, trust me, Velvet is going to be huge this autumn. I’m especially loving velvet shoes.

7. Sport Takes to the Streets

This coming season, sports luxe takes a more street-wise turn. Expect the usual pleated skirts and bomber jackets of sports luxe to be combined with tracksuit bottoms, sliders, and oversized coats.
