Below is an overview of the fashion trends available at some of the UK’s biggest stores.
They are making a transitional approach to the new season, introducing the big trend leather shorts in a more palatable light brown color for the approaching of early autumn, along with clogs that also serve as boots and a touch of trendy lace in the black and white lace trim top. If you really want to get heavy into this season’s trends as soon as possible then look no further than the full length military belted coat in a khaki colour. There is a shorter military jacket available if you want to go for just a touch of this trend. Going out heels and Android accessories look futuristic and if that’s not your thing then the Woodstock range, full of down to earth colours and boho-festival style gems could be better.
Who is up for a faux fur gilet, designed as a sort of waistcoat to wear over cool tops with jeans as the air gets cooler? The military vest is a cute take on the military trend while the huge fashion trend of the last Summer season, the maxi, gets a revamp for Autumn/Winter in the style of floor length skirts in darker patterns and colours. The satchel continues its preeminence from the last season. Collections from this season includes “Tough Love,” an attitude that claims to toughen up paisley prints and go darker with accessories, including a studded belt and edgy pair of heels.
Oasis promises that you can “beat the weather fashionably.” They are big on the camel trend, with a luxurious camel gilet, camel leather pencil dress and Studded shift dress. In terms of accessories, they have camel ballerinas and a Martha Holdall bag. Militarily speaking there is the military boyfriend cardigan and Sergent Pepper military coat. Lace is represented in the knee length Mademoiselle dress, recently arrived along with the Lace and Bow Little Black dress.
Warehouse goes all out on trend with the faux fur Aviator jacket, a zip detail cape and a black lace shirt. The Faux Fur bag is similar to River Island’s but is slightly more expensive. The Fairisle print represents the thick cardi-wool winter print trend. A Floral Maxi has developed from last season again but this one has long sleeves. A camel midi skirt and coat is a note to the camel trend again. To look at the Autumn/Winter look book is to realize that layers are everything. Different textures are put together including wool, faux fur and leather belts. There is also a considerable amount of tartan.
Everyone knows Topshop from across the pond and it’s true that their coats this season are stunning if a little more pricey than the average. They really have everything, from the shearling style to military blazers, capes, camel and faux fur styles. Going past coats and Topshop’s style is a little more individual than most other stores. They recommend shift dresses in sorbet colors and the leopard print is omnipresent. The military shirt is a crisp classy white and they advocate nude lipstick for this season.
