An Early Look at Fall Fashion

Our ever changing weather, being teased with a day of sunshine and waking up truly never knowing what is best to wear. Is now is a good time to think about Fall fashion? Yes, really - the clothes you’re going to wear in seven months time.
As you’re sorting through your wardrobe, moving Winter clothing to the back (although for most we are still having to pull these items out due to the ever changing forecast) and lighter weight garments to the front, here’s some trend information that may help you decide if you want to keep or donate certain pieces.
According to Vogue, there is a new spirit of grown-up dressing and female solidarity for Autumn. Your new soft power dressing staple - the fluted dress whilst indulging in the season's favourite blue hues.
Following catwalk trends from the New York, London, Milan and Paris, designers are investing on the return of night-time exploits, and a revival of dressing up. Chainmail, crystal mesh and full-look sequins are ramping up the drama so get ready to dazzle in Balmain
From Balenciaga’s sci-fi heroines, to Jacquemus’ sculptural lines, and Louis Vuitton’s cinching belts, the eye line is now firmly fixed upon the womanly waist. This is true power dressing!
The Seventies are seen as the frontrunner for Autumn, making itself felt in fabrics such as shearling and corduroy, with colour palettes such as sticky toffee, caramel and camel with a hint of attitude. Followed by Disco Glam florals one minute through to preppy Love Story swagger the next. Corduroy in particular will be inevitable next season - seek out the super chunky at Lemaire and Prada
If the Seventies show isn’t for you, then switch out shades of pink, or eye-popping scarlet in favour of modest, dusky blue. Lauren Bacall’s post-war polish was seen at Celine, Lemaire and Bottega Veneta. Welcome the new ‘It’ colour
If like me you are still trying to work out if Summer will even make an appearance you at least have some insight and time to sort through your wardrobe.
