This year I seem to have blinked at the crucial moment when summer arrived in the UK. My circle of friends have been very disappointed with the summer this year, but here at Walk in Wardrobe we believe that there is always a silver lining, this particular silver lining being in the shape of an opportunity to start experimenting with a new line of autumn fashion trends! There has been so much excitement amongst the fashion circles as this autumn’s fashion promises to be uniquely different from previous autumns of late, being bolder and more blingy! Here are the key autumnal fashion trends for 2012:
Bold colours: The autumn fashion this year has moved away from traditional autumnal shades of browns and dark greens. Instead, designers have been picking out the boldest colours in their colour pallet, in particular the most luxurious shades of cobalt blue and royal purple. One noticeable hot trend on the autumn runway was to mix cobalt blue with black. This look can be achieved with one of our gorgeous little cobalt blue dresses and accessorising with our sparkly black bangles, fascinators or sparkly alice bands. Team this look up with a killer pair of black heels and voila! You’re ready to go!
Shimmer and lace: That very classy look of shimmer and lace are in this autumn to give you that elegant and chic evening look. These lacy accents look gorgeous over the neck and back, and lace overlays have the most stunning, show stopping effect. These lacy adornments are not only there to glam up a dress, they can also be very flattering for ladies who want to cover problem areas such as their arms. Lacy sleeves can stop an outfit from looking frumpy and maintain a glamorous look whilst still giving you confidence.
Cinched-in waists: This can only mean one thing – the much-favoured peplum is still in! These flattering dresses have a unique ability to cinch in the waists of all body shapes whilst also elongating the figure and giving you that iconic silhouette! At the boutique we have the perfect dress in stock which will kill two fashion birds with one stone – the royal purple peplum dress!
Bling: Sparkly accessories will be all the rage this autumn, cheering up the autumn weather with a bit of glitz and bling! We have so many twinkling little gems at the boutique at the moment from bangles to hair candy to shoes to complete your autumnal look.
