Make like a model and take your pick from the autumn/ winter 2016 trends that flooded the fashion weeks.
Trend: Military and Navy
Prada and Burberry have certainly made a mark at fashion weeks, rocking our favourite navy blues and khaki. This long, buttoned navy jacket from Evans can be shrugged over the shoulders over a glitzy dress in the evening or alternatively teamed with a casual pair of jeans during the daytime.
Trend: Vivacious Velvet
Velvet is all the rage. Gucci and Fendi sent models down the catwalk at Paris Fashion Week clad in the silky stuff. This tunic from Very channels the trend and offers a sparkly twist. Wear over your favourite polo neck for the perfect daytime look or pair with your favourite stilettos and head to the nearest bar.
Trend: The Cape
As far as Alexander McQueen and Dior are concerned, Harry Potter is no longer the only one who can pull off a cape as models strutted down the runway in this powerful statement piece. The mystical cape can easily be worn over any outfit to provide a polished, chic finish to an ensemble.
Trend: Perfect Puffa
Mums all over the country will be delighted! The practical staple has dominated the catwalks and we’re sure it will soon be dominating the high street, even on nights out, after watching the staple being paired with gowns and dresses on the runway. This is definitely one we aren’t going to dispute – embrace the Puffa because it is officially a trend!
Trend: Wide Legged
As well as being more flattering than a pair of cigarette or skin tight trousers, the wide legged version is also a versatile staple. Either perfect for workwear or paired with a casual blouse or t-shirt for a fashionable everyday look, these from Monsoon take inspiration from Gucci.
Trend: Back to School
Victoria Beckham and Ralph Lauren have particularly inspired the rejuvenation of our old school uniforms as no longer being a dreaded item of clothing, but something we’re encouraged to wear. Perhaps swap the tattered and battered school skirt for a check or plaid skirt with your favourite black polo neck for some irresistible geek chic.
