Ready to plan your autumn winter wardrobe? There is no doubt we are all still hoping the sunshine will return but let’s face it, autumn is upon us. Fashion buyers and editors have been gearing up for this since Fashion Week earlier in the year and now it’s time we jump on the band wagon. Autumn Winter 2021 fashion trends are looking bright, bold and unapologetic. If the high impact look isn’t for you, there are subtle design details and colourways within the major trends that you will see you through Autumn Winter for everyday wear and style.
Puffers & Padded Out Jackets
In 2020 we saw the padded jacket take the nation by storm, and it’s here to stay through winter 2021. The padded puffer jacket is set to become a wardrobe staple, the must have outerwear for the season. From over-sized to cropped and in a variety of bright colours. There is a puffer for everyone.
Autumnal Browns & Sandy Tones
The ultimate chic influencer favourite sandy tones, from brown to beige, have a lot to offer this season. So, if punchy bold colours are not your thing, swap your whites, creams and blacks for low key sands and moodier browns. Mix your shades for full marks on adopting the trend.
Red Alert & Dashes Of Violet
Colour trends are like leaves, they change with the season. Red, lavender and lilac-hued colour trends are here to make autumn winter pop. Be bold and play with the colour trends this season, whether it’s a bright hoodie, a pastel toned puffer or purple accessories – a little with go a long way.
No autumn winter season would be complete without knitwear but this year there is no limit to the look. From a classic boxy jumper to endless layers, and knitted dresses to an Oodie, the over-sized wearable blanket. The choice is yours when it comes to knitwear, no need to choose between comfort and style.
Strong Suits & Tailoring
Many will return to the office soon after having spent over a year perched at the kitchen table with our laptops. Therefore, it’s no surprise smart suits and tailoring are dominating the catwalks this autumn winter. But that doesn’t mean suits are just for work. Invest in a blazer for an easy everyday take on the trend. Dress it up with a shirt or dress it down with jeans.
Midis & Minis
Nothing screams post lock-down fashion quite like a thigh skimming micro mini. Minis are back and they mean business. Hemlines on both skirts and dresses are looking shorter this season. Pair with thick tights and boots for a safer take on the trend. But for the faint hearted opt for a midi skirt or dress as a versatile, cute alternative for any occasion. Or team longline knitwear with leggings or tights for a twist on the trend.
Since the rise of the pandemic comfortable lounge and sportswear have become must haves in every wardrobe. The trend is here to stay, as designers hit the autumn winter catwalks with bright and colourful sweatshirts and hoodies. Over-sized and longline to cropped and even sweatshirt dresses, ensure you get the look.
