What to Wear This Autumn? 5 Designer Trends to Adopt Now
Last week we have shared our observations on A/W designer trends based on the insights made from observing the catwalk. Today, however we will focus on the trends that are already taking over the streets, high end shop windows and planning-to-buy lists of fashionistas.
Designer trends don’t rely on what the catwalk dictates – the real life plays a big role in setting trends, too. And our reality, unfortunately, is not the one A/W catwalks predicted. Instead of dramatic ball wear, the focus has shifted to luxury loungewear that would support the new normal of the indoors. Loose clothing, yoga pants and leggings are now more than just comfort clothes. This designer trend is especially eco-friendly too for now when we spend all days in loungewear, we’ve learned to value longevity of high quality pieces; and thus avoid synthetic textiles.
2. The 80s
Remember how we would always say designer trends return every 20 years? It’s been 40 since the 80s, and so they are back in fashion. Golden link chains, jewellery belts and Madonna inspired religious cross motifs are to add a pinch of the 80s nostalgia to our modern world. The 80s buzz to focus on in 2020 is, however, not broad-shouldered jackets but rather flashy, shiny details to give your outfit a glitz of glamour.
3. Custom Tailoring
Pleated trousers and double-breasted jackets have been featured on the catwalk of A/W 2020 and are a trend that will certainly rock the season. First of all, classics, as a rule, don’t go out of fashion. Even though most offices are now on the couch, tailoring pieces are not to lose popularity, however adjustments are to be made to ensure their comfort is near one the loungewear has to offer.
In terms of coats, log cuts with clear lines and neat details such as double rows of buttons and waist belts are already designer trends that are being massively sold out. It’s a good idea to hurry up and purchase one of these.
Have you ever heard of the saying ‘Punk’s not dead’? Joking aside, similarly to every autumn-winter season, the winner among designer trends is a checkered pattern. From houndstooth print to plaid checks, these patterns have a place every season in different variations. In 2020, it’s tartan’s turn. According to Stylelight, tartan jackets and blazers are already very much sought after.
With the everyday life being overcast and duller than ever before, it is only natural everyone wants at least a bit of magic in their life. And acquiring such vibes through fashion is the easiest way. From sportswear to knits and tailoring, you will find the hottest items of the seasons will have one thing in common: something of a fantasy vibe. Glittering threads, satin lengths, sequins and glossy leathers – if you need some inspiration, we strongly advice you rewatch your favourite fantasy movie – we are off to binge the Lord of The Rings trilogy.
