Happy October! I hope this will be a good month for us all. I expect it to help us ease into winter although it kind of started off a little on the wrong foot for us here, with a sudden 10C temperature drop and a lot of rain. Looking on the bright side of things, Elisabeth and I will be heading for London at the end of this month to attend the Amara Interior Blog Awards – for we made to the shortlist, yahh – and we couldn’t be more excited over this. London is so beautiful at fall… and this time round, I’ll grab the opportunity to take as many shots as possible and share them with you! It’s too bad, that London’s Fashion Week is already over (it would be great to have been there for some picture taking and reporting back). Nonetheless, I’ve got some inspiring imagery of gorgeous outfits that will set us in the mood for this fall that are great for easy-to-put-together looks that will prove how powerful fall’s bewitching spell is.
The fashion trends that are under my radar lately are: warm hues (burgundy, mustard, cognac), velvet blazers, trench coats, faux-fur jackets, lots of tartans, some fresh prints and lots of rich textures. At this point I should mention that some deep saturated royal greens also look amazing, therefore I wouldn’t hesitate to include them.
Another major trend this season is “over-embellishment” and I’m not referring to accessories only. As I already wrote in this post: sequins and glitter, add extra texture to our outfits while adding some highlight shine to them and we will see them all over. Since texture is a huge wanted attribute in both fashion and home decor alike, knits are on the rise, velvet is in fashion and corduroy has resurfaced.
Of course, it wouldn’t hurt to own an accessory with a fringe like a bag or a fringed cardigan for that matter to add a rock edge to your look. Using belts again looks more preppy, but very chic. And lastly, a personal favorite staple to add this season is a hat. I used to wear lots of them back in my twenties and I feel the time is right again to introduce them back into my uniform.
What did I tell you? There’s no need to worry what to wear. Sometimes buying a key piece is all you need to update a wardrobe. So once you pinpoint a trend you like then adopting to your style is all that’s required to feel that sensation of something new in your outfit that will have a twist.
Take good care now, xx
