As we mourn the summer sun and reminisce on the good times we had – even as we say goodbye to swimsuits, we cannot forget to get excited for autumn!
Autumn presents the perfect opportunity to cozy up, try different layers and experiment with color. Drawing inspiration from catwalks, magazines, and tabloids, here are the new trends that you should try out this Autumn 2018.
Autumn Color Trends to Wear
Break away from the loud, bright and sometimes garish colors of the summer and embrace the warmer natural colors that blend perfectly with the Autumnal environment.
The standout color of Autumn 2018 is brown. Although it is generally a regular feature, this year it’s virtually on all dominant fashion houses and features from headwear to shoes. This means that the first color you should pick out when shopping for teenage clothes at affordable prices should be brown and its variations, that is; beige, camel, coffee, rust, meerkat, caramel and tan.
Block it out
Be bold – this has been the fashion statement for 2018. This year, icons have made their mark with color blocking, and designers have incorporated bright primary color blends to their collections with the perfect casing point being the royal wedding. So, if you are looking to color blocking this Autumn 2018 don’t be afraid to combine it with unique neon, pretty pastel or other unusual combinations. Be bold and make your statement.
Go with metallic
Metallic silver has featured heavily on the runways this year making a break from “throwback” look that fashion houses like to highlight. Several designers have showcased a collection of silver suits which might look more eccentric but is cool enough to turn heads. However, for the high street, you may want to keep it a bit more subtle and low-key. Consider silver accessories or clothes with silver trim/detailing.
