Women’s Autumn/Winter trends ’10/’11- autumn leaves and the bigger the better
Colours are neutral with a touch of bold colour mixing this season. Think autumnal leaves added to blacks and navies. Mix your fiery oranges with navy or your rusty browns with camel colours. It’s all about these fabulous colours teamed with each other to create an on trend look.
Use fabric and structured materials to give you that body that you want. Use pleated tops to create a fuller bust and add a belt to give you a nipped in waist. Think... if you haven’t got it - fake it! Team textures with simple styles and wear embellishments, layers, fur and jewels to give an ultra on trend look. Oh, and of course, don’t forget to add a dash of leopard print for good measure.
Textures are big. Whether its sheepskin, faux fur, or suede, team it with any outfit and you will not only feel snug but look on trend at the same time. What more could you want? Chunky knits are a must have, think about those big cardigans and jumpers your Grandmother used to wear and that you vowed you would never be seen dead in... yes those! Wear simple neutral coloured knits, navy camel, grey, brown or black and add a skinny waist belt to it to give you shape. The bigger the better with these knits. Woolly tights and knee high socks, are a must have think layering under your boots to give more textures to our outfits.
Block heel and square toe shoes are a must have courts and brogues are very big. With big buckles and beautiful bows galore, add a touch of prettiness to your outfit with the detailing on your shoes. Fur and sheepskin lined boots whether knee high calf high or ankle high are a must have and can be of any style, so be daring and teamed with layered knee high socks and chunky knit tights, they look great.
Now to the accessories... With handbags, forget colour, tassels or quilting, this season is all about simple designs. Size isn’t important but whether its big or small, carry it with a short strap, in your hand or hooked over your forearm. Think briefcase design but being able to fit more in it!
