AW17: The trend round up

Summer is officially over and with the autumn / winter season upon us now is the perfect time to starting planning your new wardrobe. From plush knitwear and winter florals to futuristic metallic and this season’s hottest hue – red - inject new-season style into your AW wardrobe.

Start your autumn / winter style shop with a look at this season’s fashion-forward high street buys available at the Telford Centre.

Red is the new black

Add some colour to your autumn wardrobe with one of this season’s hottest hues, from deep crimsons to rich fuchsias, and everything in between, you’re bound to find your perfect shade of red. Dare to go bold and sport this colour head to toe, or why not layer different tones for the perfect colour combination?

Don’t forget to add a splash of colour to your look with a bright accessory or ankle boot or, for those feeling rather daring, why not opt for a knee high boot?

Corduroy comeback

The cord revival is upon us as the seventies’ fabric of choice returns to our wardrobes! Go back to basics with this timeless classic, and opt for autumnal hues such as burnt oranges, peachy pinks and fawny beiges. Sport a corduroy A-line skirt with a slogan tee and ankle boots for the perfect relaxed, weekend style or switch your tee for a cosy polo neck for an ideal winter look. Looking to switch your style? A cord jacket with a shearling collar is a great alternative to denim.

Space age

Sparkle and shine this season with a trend that is out of this world. From galactic prints to stargazer styles, space-inspired pieces have become one of this season’s biggest trends. Why not add an intergalactic touch to your style with flashes of gold, silver or copper into your everyday wardrobe?

Perfect the space dress code with metallic midi skirts, a shiny puffer jacket, glitter boots and even space inspired accessories!

Winter florals

Not just for spring, your autumn and winter wardrobe can still bloom with gothic inspired floral prints. Dark base floral designs reinvented with cold shoulder detail and modern frills provide a fresh take on this opulent winter style.

Combine luxurious fabrics and detailing for the perfect moodier bloom, such as velvet and brocade featuring embroidering and embellishment detail. Apply a rich colour palette of midnight blue, emerald and raspberry for fashion-forward style.

The oversized knit

The perfect autumnal wardrobe staple is back for another year! This season will be big on slouchy knits, which are not only the perfect winter warmer but also ideal for hiding a multitude of sins. Jumpers are the perfect layering piece when teamed with jeans or a midi skirt and ankle boots, and longer styles can even double up as a dress.

Sleeves of the season

Bell, flute, angel, trumpet – no we aren’t talking about Christmas just yet but rather one of the hottest autumn / winter trends. Raise the style factor this season and add a statement sleeve or hem to your transitional wardrobe.

Looking to update your 9 to 5 wardrobe? Switch masculine tailoring for a fluted hemline skirt paired with a white shirt for chic office wear.
