Trends Alert: Autumn/Winter ’18

Today is the last day of summer.

Let that sink in.

Autumn 2018 is a day away and you know what that means! The new British Vogue September Issue aka the Big Fashion Issue is already out!

A few weeks ago I was looking through the aisles, doing my weekly grocery shopping when I saw Rihanna flawlessly posing on the cover. I had been waiting for the issue to come out since I saw the video of ‘badgalriri’ and editor-in-chief Edward Enninful circulating online.

Get your wish list ready because today I am bringing you five trends for Autumn/Winter ’18.

I have always loved coats during the chilly seasons. There is nothing better than a figure-hugging trench coat or warming faux fur coat on an Autumn morning to work or university. These A/W ’18 runway shows were the perfect occasion to see what coats are in these seasons.

Givenchy! Perfection! The fur coats made me gasp at their sight. I loved every bit of it and it was all faux! Take a better look here.

The next one is Alberta Ferretti’s Autumn in a coat. The colour of the coat with the fur details, paired together with the leather gloves, neutral sweater and pants and the matching boots won the look for me.

Kaia Gerber, supermodel Cindy Crawford’s daughter, looked radiant in this Chloé coat.

And ending with Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld blessed the runway with the perfect autumnal setting. He incorporated the grand ’70s and ’80s in his masterpieces, but the feathery coats stole the show, in my opinion.

Harper’s Bazaar has a whole directory of 100 coats from this A/W ’18 runway.

Be it leopard, cheetah, snake or zebra, animal prints are in during the Autumn and Winter seasons.

I just ordered myself a body from Asos in the iconic leopard print and I can’t be more excited!

Splurge on a statement coat this Autumn and Winter or have a look online for eye-catching tops and skirts with a ‘wild’ print.

The 80’s are thought to be the boldest decade for fashion. It is making a come-back this Autumn and Winter. Striking colours, silhouettes, puffy sleeves, blazers and structured shoulders are here to inspire you to go back in time through clothing articles.

If you feel nostalgic, take Madonna or Whitney as your style inspiration and incorporate the ’80s in your wardrobe.

Here are more looks from Milan Fashion Week.

The 80’s may huge right now, but so are the 70’s!

The 70’s colour scheme has come back in style through neutrals, such as bordeaux, camel and beige.

Chloé, Rochas and Miu Miu have incorporated neutrals in their A/W’18 runway looks, together with gold chains and leather boots. Just admire Rochas’ snake print boots!

Tweed is yet again a must in Autumn and Winter. Take notice from Chanel and Prada, but not only, who played around with the fabric this A/W ’18 runway shows.

I love this fabric, from pants and blazers to coats and skirts. And I already own a tweed skirt that I bought a while ago from Zara that still needs to be worn!

And this concludes 5 of the many trends for Autumn and Winter 2018.
