My Top A/W Trends

Now I am not normally one to wish summer away, but it has come to that time of year when I am ready to look forward to the next season and what new trends will be key for Autumn/ Winter 2012. The British summer seems to have been and gone within a week and I am not too hopeful for the remaining, therefore I am beginning to to decide what trends are going to be key for me! 

1) All about the waist

One of the trends seen on the catwalks this season is the focus on the waist. It is all about tailored curves to give an hourglass figure, or the illusion of one! This is such a flattering shape and never goes out of fashion. But A/W is about taking it that step further and accentuating your feminine figure. 




2) Oriental

With everyone now travelling all over the world and discovering new clothing and local designs it is no wonder that the oriental trend plays a huge part in A/W fashion. The Eastern inspired trend uses rich, oriental prints and motifs and beautifully cut kimonos, dresses and jackets. A trend that makes you feel like you are on holiday wherever you are!

3) Trousers, trousers, trousers

This has to be my favourite trend for A/W. It's all about the trousers, whether they are slouchy, skinny, tailored or mannish. I have recently discovered a big love for trousers, especially high waisted, slouchy styles. The style for this season to stand out from the rest lies in the sumptuous fabrics and elegant shades adorning the catwalks.
