As a refreshing update on traditional autumnal trends, AW22 is a comeback collection of the classics
Rug up the right way in puffed-up parkas, gloves and all-in-ones fit for the slopes (or very cold city streets). Itʼs always good to team this trend with a slim-fitting piece to avoid bulky silhouettes.
Send Up A Flare
The ʼ70s called and theyʼre sending their flares back (again). Unlike their knee- flaring predecessors, this time around the flare extends from the ankle. Leather, sequinned or ribbed, fit out your winter wardrobe with a pair of micro- flares for maximum impact.
Say bye-bye to ankle, mid and knee-length boots this winter, over-the-knee is the first and last stop when it comes to footwear this season. Let your boots do the talking by teaming them with a mini skirt or short shorts.
Make It Opaque
Shimmy your way into winter in the most stunning of (semi) see-through pieces. Dresses, shirts and skirts are layered with sequins, lace and faux fur to add drama to your everyday and night.
Glove lovers unite! The opera glove is back, and it is gorgeous. Leather versions make it modern, and lace adds that forever feminine feel. Whichever you choose, wear them with everything, all the time.
You don’t need to save your gown for after hours, actually quite the opposite. Gowns graced the catwalks in all their glory teamed with cardigans, rugby stripes and puffer jackets, giving them an edge over the usual day dress.
Bright Pink Everything
Ring in the new season with pink in all its gorgeous glory. Fuchsia, rose or blush — thereʼs a hue to suit every taste and itʼs amust-purchase to tick off this trend.
My Body My Business
Worn belted, with a skirt or topped with a scarf, the bodysuit is back and far from basic. Top marks go to Michael Kors for teaming his with a trench, and a special mention must be given to Isabel Marant for the sequinned version of this timeless trend.
Calling all collegiate fans. Stripes, tweed and crisp whites have made a comeback. Miu Miu is once again top of class having mastered the preppy trend with long socks, belted minis and suede bombers. Itʼs an A+ from us.
With silver options being the most sought-after, one is never enough when it comes to bracelets this season. Wear your statement armlets stacked on both wrists to stand out from the crowd.
On The Fringe
Topping off sleeves, skirts On the and hanging hems, fringing has come a long way since the roaring ʼ20s. Multicoloured feathery tassels, long leather versions and wintry woollen styles are a fashionable distraction and act as an accessory on their own.
Sweep it up
Long hems reign supreme complete with trains and asymmetric brims. Floor length creations work with everything from trainers to heels and boots and allow you to create just enough drama to dress your best.
Patterns played a leading role on the catwalks making it clear that artistic prints are a go-to whatever the season. Adorning gowns, day dresses and jackets alike, a bold print is a winning choice this winter.
