I don’t quite know what it is, but as soon as July hits I get an instant urge to start preparing for my Autumn/ Winter wardrobe, when really I should be starting to enjoy the summer weather that has taken so long to arrive (or at least in Glasgow anyway). This year has been no different and I am extremely keen to start pulling together outfits for next season, especially since there are so many trends that I can’t wait to try out.
The trends for Autumn/ Winter vary from designer to designer. We saw masculinity and androgyny at Chanel last fashion week, a take on different eras: the forties and the sixties at Miu Miu and Prada respectively but my favourite trend has to be the comeback of 90s grunge and the use of harder fabrics such as leathers and glossy pvc, rougher edges through the use of studs and spikes, giving fashion a domintarix spin.
The main statements I’m hoping to implement into my look next season is simplistic make-up, using bold colours on my lips such as purple and black, crosses will be the print/shape I will definitely be trying out with maybe some feathers a la Ungaro, sheer tights, grungy knits with plenty of rips and holes, armour jewellery… the list goes on
Take a look below at some of my fashion inspiration for next season, can’t wait to start rolling out the trends….

D&G took us back to George Michael’s “Choose Life” t-shirt from that Wham video that we love to hate – “Wake me up before you GO-GO”. It’s reminded me of mid-eighties London Fashion. Katharine Hamnett and her political t-shirts and Bodymap’s David Holah and Stevie Stewart. D&G definitely didn’t want people to take the collection to serious and that’s probably what the fans of the show want from them. Fun, loud and youth. The models glided down that catwalk to Madonna’s 1990 hit “Vogue” in hues of acid yellow, bright orange and highlighter pink. Not everyone’s cup of tea but they didn’t mind. There was alphabet print everywhere on long floaty dresses and tight black and white leggings. There were converse-like high-heeled sneakers and plastic charm necklaces that I could see my 15 year old sister wearing. Eighties oversized acid blazers and cropped jumpers in black and yellow, black and yellow (8). A lot of colour was splatted everywhere, even on the runaway. It’s always nice to see D&G signature chiffon floaty dresses that one day, I will buy! I love the alphabet printed blouse in dark pink, that’s something that I would consider buying. Everything else is a little too Stephen Sprouse for me but I can definitely see girls younger rocking it.

This dress could be seen on Katy Perry I bet.
