autumn/winter 2021 in 3...2...1…
1. Glitz & glam, all year, every year!
Even though the number of parties to attend will still be limited this
year, this autumn is all about adding some sparkle and shine to our outfits.
And to be honest... isn’t right now just the perfect time to shine?! From sequins and glitter, metallic shades to chic gold. Of course, this trend originated in the
early roaring twenties and has never really been out of fashion since. This
season is no different; glitter and glamour are hot! So, how can a real diva
incorporate this trend into everyday life? Of course, you will be dressed in
head-to-toe glitter for late evenings at the cocktail bar, but adding some
glamorous details is also essential for a daytime look. Why not try pairing
your classic office outfit with a festive garment or with bold sparkling
jewellery? The sky is the limit.
2. The puffier the sleeves, the better the look
‘’Do you have something up your sleeve(s)?’’ You could hide all
kinds of ideas and plans in the sleeves that are trending this autumn. Already popular in the summer of 2021, this
fashion trend has followed us into autumn and winter… the puff sleeve!
Definitely not true for all things in life, but when it comes to this trend, we
just have to admit: the bigger, the better. A puff sleeve is not just perfect
for adding a cute touch, but it also makes a fabulous eye-catcher, or make that
two eye-catchers. Create a sophisticated forties/fifties look with a classic
blouse or dress or opt for a playful sixties/seventies look with a knitted jumper
or cardigan... puff sleeves are everywhere this season. And *poof* before you
know it, there are puff sleeves in your shopping bag!
3. Flowers always and always
Flowers never seem to fade in the world of fashion. And this season they
are in full bloom once again. Forties cutie or seventies babe… this fashion trend
is a great choice regardless. Because this autumn floral prints seem to come in two distinct
flavours: the ‘granny florals’ and the ‘anti-wallflower blooms’. The names
really speak for themselves. Granny florals are those dainty, delicate flowers
in soft colours, reminiscent of the flowers on the wallpaper that your
grandmother used to have. While the anti-wallflower blooms are all about large,
bold flowers in eye-catching groovy colours. Why choose if both styles will let
you bloom, flower and flourish?
4. Legs for days and days and days!
It makes total sense for our legs to have their moments in the sun
during the summer. But thanks to this trend, your legs will also get the love
and attention they deserve come autumn/winter. They are gorgeous, so why hide
them? Tights in bold prints and colours
are 'hot and happening' while also protecting you from the cold. Want to go all
out? Add a pair of high boots to your outfit so you can flaunt your endless
legs for everyone to admire! Don’t feel like wearing skirts dresses or shorts?
No problem. Use a pair of eye-catching socks to add a fun touch while wearing your comfy jeans.
5. Lots of check prints at my check out
Do you already have this trend in your closet? Check,
check, double check! Another timeless classic that will wow for years to come.
Just like in decades past, this season’s check patterns come in a wide variety of colours, sizes and styles. Houndstooth patterns
and tweed fabrics are also essentials. Coats, dresses, blouses and skirts
doused in checks. Want to opt for a subtle detail instead? No problem! If you
like this trend, you can also opt for scarfs or gloves. But with so many check
items available, making a choice can be quite a challenge. Wait… is that 2
check items that I see in your shopping bag? Or even 3?
6. Seventie(s) layers during winter
A fabulous trend that was an absolute must in the
seventies and we totally get it! Why limit yourself to just one item if you can
layer several? An added bonus is that this trend will keep you cosy and warm
during those colder days. Add some layers to your look and play with different
lengths for a standout look. For this trend, you should opt for a minimum of 3
but preferably 4 layers! Try pairing your favourite white blouse with a
cardigan, sweater and/or gilet and make sure the blouse’s collar sticks out
from beneath the upper layer. Team with your favourite jeans, high boots and a
scarf to complete the look. Or maybe you prefer wearing dresses? Wear a top or gilet
over your favourite (floral) dress and layer a long cardigan on top. Going
outside? Make sure you wear your long coat. You can also opt for faux fur or wool
accessories as the perfect finishing touch for a standout seventies look. Warm
and fashionable? A match made in heaven if you ask me!
