B-r-r-r-ing in the new season…
So, its been a long summer, and slowly its coming to an end *sigh*. If only it could last forever. But eventually we all must return to the cities where we grew up and get back to the normal routine of waking up early, getting through the day and collapsing into bed at the end of it, well thats how I do it anyway. No longer can we gaze into the horizon, with the sun setting into the sea and smell the warm summer fresh air lingering. We must embrace what the Autumn will bring us, as one season fades a brand new one opens its secrets to us. And I must admit, Autumn is by far one of my favourite seasons, especially while living in London, as you never quite know what your going to get. Maybe this season will elapse us with blankets of snow, falling early not being able to hold out until winter. Or maybe the sun will extend itself and stick around late into the months of September/October. Either way we’ll be surprised.
However, for the fashion world, Autumns indecisiveness can cause confusion for the ones who wish to start filling their wardrobes with warmer clothing; cashmere jumpers and woollen scarves. So whats in store for us this Autumn/Winter?
-It seems were leaving behind the regulars; greys and blacks, seen everywhere during the cooler seasons, replaced by the stern blues, purples and reds. Not only will it add colour to the long cold days but it will provide warmth and a sense of peace that we often lack during the stressful winter months.
-Its all about shape. This is great news for those of us who love to show off those summer bodies that we have worked on the previous season. With tight waist-belts to pull those tiny ones in even more, or pencil skirts to elongate those gorgeous tanned legs (too bad they’ll be hidden this season). And this is also great news for others who decide that the summer body can only be present in summer and keeping it is too much of an effort as we start to embrace the rise of the oversize; things that ‘hang’ off you aren’t always the most unflattering, as this seasons we hope to see many coats that literally ‘drown’ you in warmth and comfort.
-Country Clutter; fill your wardrobes with it, we dare you. Were taking a trip into the land of cows and sheep, and we have to dress to the occasion. We prefer neutral colours (as not to scare the animals), traditional tailored tweed trousers hitched up high and caps that hang off the head. This look gives off the ‘I own a country house’ vibe, which is both extremely British and noble.
