Autumn is here! And I would be lying if i said I am not excited. The leaves are starting to turn that caramel and tan colour and the temperatures are beginning to drop. After a red hot Summer, I am personally ready for the weather to turn. This means we get to have a full wardrobe overhaul and which lady wouldn’t love to do that? The issue we have is still dressing appropriately for the office, while still protecting ourselves from the elements outside. Once you’ve got that in order you need to make sure you are dressed right for indoors. The heaters in the office will more than likely be on full blast so make sure you can shed the layers once you make it to work. The problem we face is getting the balance right. One minute it can be warm out then the next minute it can be freezing.
It has been said that your zodiac sign can determine what sort of style you have. We know that people are often linked to certain behaviors and traits by what star sign they are. Aries are normally sassy, Gemini’s are known to have a double sided personality and taurus’ are known to not forgive easily. Apply these traits and characteristics to fashion and what happens? I have cherry picked a few star signs below and what I believe to be associated with them in terms of fashion.
No wardrobe is complete without a trusty pair of denim cutoff shorts. On days when longline maxi dresses and linen trouser just don’t cut, denim cutoffs are the perfect alternative (Just don’t wear them to the office…your boss might not approve). The classic denim shorts and logo t-shirt combo is a go to for many ladies out there. It’s the unofficial uniform of the Summer. My t-shirt of choice is my trusty, vintage, Led Zeppelin band tee, tucked into my denim shorts.
The reign of millennial pink is finally coming to an end. There is a new shade of pink that has slowly took started to take centre stage. Enter…hot pink. Fuschia pinks have been one of the main colours to hit the runways for Spring/Summer 2018. Many of the big designers have sent their models down the catwalks in this vibrant hue. Eye Catching, feminine and fierce, this colour is tipped to make big moves this season. In fact, it is already happening. Many high street stores are already stocking hot pink styles and it would seem the response is as good as we expected.
As you all know trends come and go in the fashion world (some welcomed and some that take us by surprise). Trends are normally rehashed fromm decades gone by and can make quite an impact second time round. The dad sneaker is one of those styles that actually surprised me when I saw it coming down the runways of fashion week. The dad sneaker is known best for being sported by middle aged men, wearing stone wash, baggy jeans and a fanny pack, while on holiday. I bet you’re wondering how I am possibly going to convince you that this is going to look stylish after what I’ve said above, but fear not, you will be buying some as soon as you’ve finished reading this article.
As we all know to well, the Summer in this country can be unpredictable and often short lived. While it might be the Summer months on the calendar it doesn’t mean mother nature will play ball. Although the weather is always an uncertainty, one thing that isn’t is the beautiful Summer collections served up by designers brands and high street brands. Certain styles and trends are picked up on at fashion week and filter down to the high street.
Summer is on the horizon, and I am getting extremely excited. This best thing about the whole transition into a new season is being able to build your new wardrobe.
