29 Jul AUTUMN/WINTER 2019 FASHION TRENDS FOR WOMEN
AUTUMN/WINTER FASHION 2019 FOR WOMEN
Jewellery – Chunky long and short chains. Very 1970s. Plus large necklaces in anything from pearls to embellished cross pendant necklaces. Large earrings (best kept for the evening).
Leather Look – Swing coats, parkas and blanket coats in leather. Wide legged leather trousers as well as narrow in various colours.
Capes and Oversized Coats – 1970s style belted wrap wool midi as well as double breasted coats. In plain colours and checks.
Richly coloured black with floral patterned dresses worn with a gothic vibe…..so with black biker boots or over the knee boots. Dark shades with florals and lace/crochet embellishments.
Colour Black – in skirts, suits, dresses, trousers and jackets ……a reliable go to colour in everyone’s wardrobe that comes back season after season. The catwalks also showed all-white ensembles too. So, dig out your Winter whites too and perhaps make a few more additions from my choices online.
1970s Revival – With some designers there was a Boho 1970s mix of patterns thrown together – anything from patchwork, leopard, leather, geometric and floral. A long wool boa completed the somewhat hippy look.
Houndstooth print and Tartan – could be found on trousers, skirts, coats and jackets.
Silk scarves – worn at the neck and tied very like a Parisienne to the side. Google ways to tie scarves and be inventive.
Patterned Tights – brightly patterned in florals.
Full on Colours – Some designers have chosen all out bright plain colours for coats, skirts and trousers in pinks, blues, yellow, red, orange, bright green and purple, in wools, satin and brocade. However, the classic camel and beige styles still prevail too.
Big shouldered jackets – very 1980s.
Skirts – Pleated midi skirts are still in. So too are A line midi skirts in tweeds and plaid. Very Home Counties and for those who remember the TV series ‘To the Manor born’ – the models were wearing what Audrey, the lead character, wore.
Skinny ribbed jumpers and polo necks are in – Very 1970s. Worn with long chunky necklaces. Trousers and jeans are tucked in with boots over the knee on the outside.
Corduroy blazers – are back for men and women.
Chunky knitwear – still popular to keep you cosy on those cold, harsh Winter days.
Ladylike traditional framed handbags (1950s/1960s look) – as well as Retro style 1970s chain handled handbags are the mode. Buy new or rifle through a charity shop as I am sure there will be the odd relic there from the 1970s waiting for a new home.
Square-toed shoes – some with big buckles. Very 1970s.
Boots – Chunky black biker/Boho boots – 1970s style, 1980s chunky heeled ones. Over the knee boots.
Wide Belts – with big buckles as well as chain belts.
For the evening – the runway was showing big, flamboyant ruffled ballgowns, dresses embellished with feathers as well as feather boas. Silver, sparkly metallic dresses.
Suggestion: Why not rock the 1970s vibe by teaming up your gilet in the back of your wardrobe from a couple of years ago with a ribbed polo neck and chunky long chain necklace and jeans. I probably would not wear the jeans tucked into boots as it’s a difficult look to pull off unless you are a tall, skinny model.
