Catwalk trends here to stay

By  | 

If you’re like most people then you are probably saddened at the sight of auburn leaves falling off the trees and the noisy wind on your window pane. But, if you’re like me then you’re over the moon and already created about 10 outfits to rock this autumn.

There’s no better inspiration than the SS17 catwalks and after such fabulous shows, which left all of us daydreaming of being part of their stories, here are some catwalks trends that are ready to wear.

The statement sleeve

Who ever thought that a sleeve could be both clothing and accessory? Catwalks from all around the world have walked us through the process of styling sleeves in the most creative ways possible. XL or puffy sleeves, revealing shoulders or elbows, daring designers like Christopher Kane and Gucci played with embroidery while Chloe encouraged us to wear feather sleeves.

Clean patterns

While Italian designers Gucci and Dolce have put on a fairytale kind of show and displayed some rather challenging collections to wear, other designers have opted for clean, minimalistic patterns. Salvatore Ferragamo and Victoria Beckham are some of the few who created easy to wear items in navy blue, grey and bright orange shades.

Leather and (faux) fur

As expected, no autumn season without leather and fur. Two classics which will continue to spice up any outfit every autumn day. Leather jackets seen at Versus Versace call for a complete makeover by adding long, bulky boots and heavy accessories. At the other end, Marc Jacobs starts his fantasy with see through dresses and fur collars. Yet surely both combined would be as great of a match as worn individually.

Sportswear

Good news for everyone! If Donatella herself centred her collection around sport and practicability then that should you give you that boost of confidence next time you wear your sweater. For a more stylish touch, nylon anoraks and boxy sweatshirts are a great idea for any fashion enthusiast. Rag & Bone and Max Mara are key points of inspiration.

Khaki

Although Victoria Beckham slipped a bright orange in her collection, some designers focused their entire show around the adored khaki. Burberry created the ultimate military-chic trench giving a plus of feminity, while J W Anderson transformed the classic knitwear into a more exciting piece displaying it into a khaki shade. Colours to match: cognac brown, dark plum and cool grey.
