I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny. -- Coco Chanel

Trend Report: what to wear this season

If you were lucky enough to experience the fashion shows first hand then you probably won’t need a trend update, but for those of you who could only watch the catwalk videos in the comfort of your own desk, may want a little reminder of the huge trends you’ll expect to see this season. So, now all the international fashion shows are sadly over we can all start thinking about stocking up for Autumn/Winter. ..

Just a few weeks ago we were still hoping we could stretch out wearing our pretty summer dresses and bare our legs for that little bit longer, well luckily you still can! Bare legs were everywhere on the catwalk, if worn with dresses and skirts.

If you don’t feel like baring all, what about taking inspiration from the gorgeous Pixie Lott and covering up with some cute over the knee socks, to keep it classy but also cute wear with a mini dress that covers up on top.

A key trend this season was the womanly look that welcomed killer curves. Prada and Louis Vuitton went all out with this classic look and filled the catwalk with figure-hugging dresses and lady-like blouses, which by the way are meant to be huge this season. Pussy-bow blouses are flying off the rails already, maybe because they are just so versatile and are a much more glam touch to complement you’re jeans as opposed to a basic tee.

To compliment this feminine look, curls are the way forward this season and all shows flaunted the curl whether models had short hair, fringe or layers everyone was showing them off. From seventies chic at the Oscar de la Renta show to swept over curls at John Richmond’s, everyone’s hair made a statement.


A trend that revealed its autumnal colours was the berry trend; the catwalk was drenched in sumptuous berry hues. To embrace this trend simply invest in a few key colours from this palette to brighten up you’re wardrobe. The great thing about this shade is, it’s a colour blonde and brunettes alike can look great in.

Other major looks for the season were fur, lace, velvet, capes, A-line mini dresses and expect to see lots of black but these were just to name a few. Whatever look you decided to embrace this season, you’ll be sure to look good with the amount of styles to choose from.
