Have you sorted your winter wardrobe yet? September is over, the evenings are getting darker and if you haven’t already decided which is your main winter coat this season, you’re already behind on the trends! We’ve pulled together all the tips from major magazines and fashion trend-setters to bring you the essentials.
Keep reading to find out which colour the fashion designers love this winter and how to style your make-up and hair to suit.
What’s Popular This Season
Red is a very popular colour this season, wear it head to toe to stand out from the crowd, or pick a simple red coat to complete your winter wardrobe. Bright red will really draw attention, but we’ve also seen lighter, calmer shades on the runway. You can also expect to see a splash of red in makeup this season: incorporate a little into your smoky eye-shadow, or opt for a classic red lip look.
As for shoes, simple boots are always a winner in winter. Look for warm shoes that fit with the current fashion trends, match your outfit and keep your feet warm. If you’re going for a bright red, colourful coat or top, try some bling shoes to compliment without clashing horribly. Gunmetal, silver or patent leather will all look fantastic with red!
Patent leathers, PVC and gloss fabrics have been a hit on the runways for Autumn/Winter 2017, so definitely include these in your wardrobe somewhere. If not shoes, a simple PVC skirt or leather jacket will look fab and add a smooth texture – a nice contrast to the usual chunky knits we see this time of year.
Hair styles seem relaxed this season too, so let your hair down. Keep red for your outfit and go for natural colours, chestnut brunettes and honey blondes rather than bright colours and platinum shines. You can rock some gentle waves or pull it up into a messy bun – the key is to not try too hard.
The Best Place to Shop
The best place we’ve found to shop for chic style this year is Saint Tropez. This Danish women’s online fashion store has all the latest trends for Autumn/Winter 2017, including some cute new coats and jackets in their outwear collection. They ship to many countries within Europe and beyond and also offer free returns!
There’s a classic trench coat that is perfect for layering over your work outfit. The camel brown tone is gentle and will really look great with a taupe/neutral make-up palette. There are also several velvet blazers to browse over: adding some texture to your evening outfit while keeping you warm as the temperature drops.
We especially like the faux fur jacket; not only is it a beautiful olive green shade, but it’s faux fur is cosy warm and animal friendly! You can find a coat or jacket for every occasion at Saint Tropez so head over there to have a look at what you can work into your wardrobe.
