It’s time to bid a fond farewell to those floaty dresses and Daisy Dukes. Fall is just around the corner, and it’s time to discover what’s hot in the fashion world. If you’re a keen follower of fashion, here are some of the key looks you’ll be falling for in the coming weeks.
You know the cooler weather is coming when the shops are full of velvet skirts, dresses, and jackets. Velvet is a luxurious material, which adds a touch of sophistication to any outfit. Go for a burgundy or navy pinafore dress with a classic white blouse, thick tights and ankle boots for a laid-back look. Or pair a velvet blazer with some black skinny jeans, a silk cami and pointed courts for a night on the town.
Not a year goes by when faux fur isn’t big news on the catwalks. This trend is great for those miserable fall days when there’s a chill in the air. Opt for an oversized jacket, jeans and sneakers for a casual daytime outfit. Dress up a long-sleeved printed dress with a longline gilet and knee length boots for something a little more glamorous. You’ll find some fantastic catwalk copies on the high street. Search online for offers like H&M coupon codes to update your wardrobe for less.

Leopard print is a fall/winter staple, and it’s a really versatile option. You can embrace the trend and run with it. Or you can adopt a more subtle approach. Go for statement tees, blouses or dresses. Or keep things simple with basics teamed with printed accessories. A leopard print clutch or a pair of stilettos are the perfect addition to an LBD, for example. For daytime looks, go for a printed tote bag or a slouchy woolen scarf.
The puffer jacket
Good news for all fans of 90’s fashion: the puffer is back! It’s had a bit of a makeover for 2016, and there’s a definite luxe vibe. Think patent black and Christmassy metallics. This isn’t a trend that everyone will love, but give it a go if you’re feeling brave. If you’re not completely convinced, go for a muted version. Khaki and black are excellent color options for those not eager on grabbing the limelight.
If you love the sparkle and glitter that comes with the arrival of the holidays, the tinsel trend is one for you. Think pleated metallic skirts, layered dresses and glittery fringing. If you’re looking to toughen up a girly daytime look, throw a biker jacket over a sequin t-shirt or add a black fur coat to an iridescent midi skirt.
