The time has come once again to swap those trusty summer gladiator sandals for cosy shoe boots, and forget the summer uniform of denim shorts in favour of dressing in comfy knits and go-to skinny jeans. Autumn/ winter is almost upon us, and to make sure you stay stylishly ahead of the rest this season, here’s a few key looks that will allow you to effectively trend-proof your wardrobe this AW13…
Rework the Crop Top
You may think that the arrival of the autumn/ winter signals a time for pushing summer favourite crop tops to the back of the closet – but on the contrary, crop tops are still a key look for AW13, making it a great trend for budget fashionista’s who want to rework their summer style ready for the new season. To put an AW13 spin on your favourite crop tops, team them with a chic pencil skirt for that sophisticated flash of waist.
Leather goes Luxe
This AW13 is the season for leather. Ideal for putting a little grunge edge on any ensemble, leather looks just as good worn with a cool monochrome vibe as it does teamed with neon brights for that statement pop of colour. This season is all about leather skater skirts – the ultimate day to night piece, wear yours with a chic printed tee in the day then work afterhours style by wearing it with a tailored blazer and skyscraper heels.
Pretty in Pink
The unlikely trend contender for AW13 is pink. Usually a colour palette associated with spring and summer, baby pink hues are high on any trendsetter’s radar this season. From pretty pink day dresses to season cheap going out dresses, when wearing pink this season make sure you toughen up the look with some statement leather accessories – two trends for the price of one!
Boots made for Walking
This season’s women’s footwear trends are all about stepping one stylish foot forward in a pair of boots. Whether it’s a pair of masculine style inspired brogues or a dramatic pair of studded shoe boots, adding a pair of boots (and an obligatory pair of tights!) will transform any of your summer wardrobe essentials for the new season.
