So, the extravaganza that is Fashion Month SS18 is almost over, and thanks to the impeccable streets of New York, London, Milan, and Paris we’ve been hit with sartorial key trends to covet for Autumn 2017.
From easy tailoring (the checked blazer is absolutely everywhere), and slouchy cut-out knits, through to the revival of the bum-bag. – We’re spoilt with plenty of A/W wardrobe inspiration.
Oh, and if you think colour-blocking is out, think again. It’s all about being colour confident in rich autumn hues or pastel shades whether it be a sleek monochromatic or a bold mixed-colour approach. But let’s not forget about print, think dark floral everything – the streets are literally saturated with blooms.
Street style isn’t shy of the whole ‘more is more’ concept, either and I’m totally obsessed with the influx of boxy, oversized tailoring giving off a feminine meets masculine vibe.
Meanwhile, playing with texture, clashing colour and an ultra-cool update on 90s layering is proving popular, too.
Shop some key trends for A/W 17 here:
Whether it’s pinstriped, plaid, floral, tweed or cord (who else senses a 70s corduroy resurgence?!), embrace Autumn’s ‘everything goes’ feel by making the blazer your staple for AW17. Wear 1, or even 2 belts layered atop for more of a statement, or go up a size or two for that oversized look.1. Mango
Prepare to give colour-blocking a cool makeover – try coupling laid-back pastels (SO feeling lilac at the minute), head-to-toe jewel tones and clashing vibrant brights.1. Zara
So the bum-bag is back (now rebranded as the ‘belt-bag’), but now a little more chic. I’m not completely loving the trend as of yet, perhaps once we’re hit with more choice I might be swayed!1. Zara
The perfect transitional piece that’s both flattering and versatile.1. Zara

Let your accessories stand out by trying this season’s asymmetric earring trend for a contemporary, mismatched feel.1. Mango

Team a floaty midi skirt with an oversized turtleneck knit, and a pair of boots for a feminine, polished look. The pleat seems to be back in full force, too.1. Topshop

From cut-out detailing, dramatic sleeves, and a plethora of colour – let the jumper be the standout piece in your A/W wardrobe. I’m particularly loving jumpers with a slouchy fit.1. Zara
