Exciting new season ahead

After spending four absolutely inspiring days at the wonderful London 2012 Olympics I am refusing to come down from my exhilarated state as the British press seems to want to persuade me to do! Instead, I’m concentrating on the exciting new Autumn/Winter season ahead.

There really is something for everyone in the shops this autumn. Here are a few trends to look out for:

Geometric pattern shirt from Paul Smith

Leather jacket from Zara

Colours: are exciting with lots of purple, blue and red wine colours.

Embellishment: is the order of the day with studding, jewel, sequin and brocade detailing.

Leather: is huge – there’s a big Goth interpretation but we don’t all have to don a full-length, black, leather coat and take ourselves off to Whitby Abbey. There are lots of wonderful leather jackets already appearing in the high street and leather detailing is very ‘of the moment’.

Florals: are still with us for Autumn/Winter. Instead of pale backgrounds they are darker and have a winter-floral feel. Great for men’s casual shirts and women’s shift dresses to liven up a dreary October day.

Prints: are both geometric and kaleidoscopic.  A good way of adding a fashionable element to last year’s jacket in the form of a shift dress or a new shirt or top.

Outerwear: is huge! And this time I mean big in size terms. Jackets are boxy, coats are simple in style but large in dimension.

Keep the newfound British positivity going and take a trip to the shops to see all the exciting new season fashions for yourself!

My next blog will look at the new seasons accessory trends.
