So, you’re into fashion and you want to be trendy, but those red carpets are mostly walked in outfits you’ve never seen in your life nor would you be able to afford them. With the rising cost of expenses, I feel you! That is why I’ve decided to compile a brief fall and winter fashion trends for 2018/2019 and to give you an idea on what you should be wearing if you want to go with the trend in a more affordable way. In simpleton terms, let’s go shopping!
Here are the most common things from the many, many catwalks
Yes, animal print is a thing, again! This year it seems that leopard and snake prints win in every possible item. You’ll see red snake print trousers and leopard print jackets. You’ll see it on bags and shoes and scarves. They’re everywhere! Remember that if you want to match these, be careful not to wear too much print – simple, black trousers and printed shoes go together peanut butter and jelly.
Tweed (you not!)
Can you imagine a better world? Now, you can because tweed’s in town! I really love tweed. I think it’s an incredibly easy fabric to wear, and very comfortable too. Once again, you’ll see tweed in trousers, skirts and fitted jackets. The best thing about wearing tweed is that you can easily dress it up or down, depending on what shoes you put on or what kind of jumper, for example. To me, it’s a smart casual look and I’m here for it!
It is not 2018, no, no! We’re back in the 80s with large colourful jumpers and puffy shoulders. I’m not a big fan of this trend solely because of the padded shoulders, however I do see the point fashion is trying to make and I also love it. It gives structure to your jackets and you can create a very tiny waist, which is also a plus in my book!
If you haven’t been paying attention, suits are a big part of this collection. Not your typical going-to-work kind of suit, but your I’m-looking-professional-and-sexy-at-the-same- time suit! They’re fun and short with checked-jackets or plaid-skirts. And if you thought you aren’t a suit kind of woman, think again because these are what you’ll want to wear. Who doesn’t love a good ol’ plaid skirt?
That is the sound of a fashion trend coming right up. Go get yourself a brilliant, shiny new pair of cowboy boots because they’re a trend this season! Wear them with ankle jeans or a plaid skirt, a maxi dress or even your new, sexy suit – don’t be afraid of them because you’ll be seeing them strutting right off the catwalk.
I hope you enjoy my little compilation, and may you have a wonderful week!
