TOPSHOP:7 Trends From Fashion Month You’ll Want To Try Now

Yet another season of fashion month has just come to a close and, as per usual, we kept a close eye on all incoming trends. From larger-than-life hats to delicate florals and citrus yellows – these are the seven trends we’re looking forward to wearing come autumn…Quirky jewellery was on the accessory agenda this season: we spotted paperclips and multi-coloured gems on the runways from Stella McCartney to Gucci. Take notes, as these will certainly be a fun way to brighten up your wardrobe when it gets grey outside.Trust us, big shoulders will be one of the biggest trends of the whole year. This fashion month, the power-dressing staple defined Givenchy and Alexander McQueen’s collections and was elevated by silk draping and colour-pop fabrics.Everyone loves a good pair of chunky boots, and this fashion month they re-emerged at Marni and Prada. The newness? Vinyl finishes, car tyre soles and tassel shoelaces. Go for a bright red pair for added punk-appeal.Florals might not be the first thing you think of when it comes to winter dressing, but designers always love to break rules. At Giambattista Valli floral dresses were styled with feathery heels, whereas Louis Vuitton went for dark tights and flat Western boots.Yellow continues to be a major colour trend – no matter the season. Our favourite citrus-coloured pieces on the runway were Fendi’s Retro-vinyl trench and Marc Jacobs’ sweeping off-shoulder evening gown.Long gone are thoughts of a plain beret or beanie: hats go above and beyond this time around. From a veiled bucket hat at Christian Dior to rebooted jester-esque pieces at Loewe, headwear just got a lot more interesting…How to make knitwear cooler? On the Burberry runway knotted silhouettes added texture and interest, and at JW Anderson braided yarns took centre stage on vertically-striped oversized jumpers.

There’s been a lot of major runway moments this New York Fashion Week, from Tomo Koizumi’s fantastical organza dresses to Eckhaus Latta’s beaded-knitwear melange (which were accompanied by UGG mules, obvs). Plus, the NYC sidewalks have been serving some seriously good moments. We’re talking everything from bold suiting to slick accessories – so, without further ado, here are six looks that caught our attention over the last few days.
Still a showgoer favourite, tailoring continues to be big this season. There were plenty of classic tweeds and pared-back whites, but Harper’s Bazaar Editor Chrissy Rutherford and her scarlet ensemble stood out against the grey New York backdrop. Patent boots, skinny sunglasses and a sleek up-do provide the edgy finishing touches.
Blogger Evangelie Smyrniotaki puts a cool spin on the utility trend with this look. She takes an oversized, boxy Alexander Wang shirt, buttons it up to the top and cinches in the waist with a belt before pairing it with laid-back sweat pants. Point-toe booties give it a grown-up touch, while those visors add a slick futuristic feel. So good.
The Chanel show isn’t until Paris Fashion Week in March, but we don’t have to wait till then for some Parisian chic ‘fits. This street-styler’s tweed suit and white turtleneck channels that sophisticated French vibe. As if it wasn’t cute enough, she adds a beret for that touch of je ne sais quoi.
OK, so the bum bag/cross-body sitch is getting a sleeker update for AW19. Sporty styles are still a go, but, for a more polished moment, a leather-look option is just the ticket. Prepare to see Caro Daur’s Fendi version and its detachable belt a lot over the next few weeks in the fashion cities’ street-style.
Toned-down brown shades took centre stage this season, with a range of styles coming in earthy tones. This street-styler went for a so-2019 satin terracotta dress and layered it over a turtleneck (note: this is how to wear your fancier frock now). As if two browns weren’t enough, she added mahogany slouch boots. Just beautiful.
You can’t beat a ‘low fuss but still on-point’ look, and this boilersuit is just that. It would appear the all-in-one isn’t going anywhere soon and we’re pretty happy about it. This model pairs hers with chunky Dr. Martens and a puffer jacket. Your new comfy-but-cool weekend outfit is sorted.

Yup, it’s cold out there. But even if you can’t physically escape the chill, you can take a mental break from it by prepping your spring wardrobe. To get you started, we’ve picked five of our favourite dresses ATM, and – spoiler alert – there’s something for every mood.
Two thousand neonteen
ICYMI, 2019 is the year of fluorescent colours. And if you were worried, no, there’s no such thing as too much neon. This off-the-shoulder broderie dress is where futuristic highlighter shades meet the feminine milkmaid trend. Wear it with chunky trainers (yes, still going strong) and mini shades and you’re good to go.
Slip into something comfy
You can’t really go wrong with a slip dress now, can you? And you don’t necessarily have to wait till spring either: just layer it over a long-sleeved tee or sweater for colder weather. This blue satin story is one of those day-to-night heroes, so whether you’re feeling heels or trainers, it’s here for you.
Neutral mode
The new neutrals are all about natural fabrics and earthy tones. Think clay pots, exotic food markets and exposed brick. We’re loving this burnt orange beauty and its cute 70s-inspired cut-out detail. Style it with nude strappy sandals for a sophisticated look, or pull out your kicks for that contrast we all know and love.
It’s all in the deets
Whether you’re a minimalist or a maximalist, this season is all about the details. Think of buttons, like the ones on this check dress, as the cherries on top of the cake. From wooden to resin, these accents are here more for the statement factor rather than the functionality – but, luckily, they double as both.
Totally tropical
This one has us dreaming of vacation, but it works for any occasion really – whether it’s a day out in the city or drinks after dark. Tropical floral is a trend you’ll be seeing a lot of very soon, so you might wanna jump on it ASAP. This one’s got everything you need: a sweetheart-neckline, a flamenco-style fishtail hem and a shade that looks great with a tan (real or fake).

3. Amplified check prints

Bright neons, blurred lines and zoomed-in prints: there’s nothing traditional about these checks. Go for a head-to-toe look or elevate a simple outfit with a bold bag or hat.

4. Reinvented animal prints

Animal prints have been pretty much all we talked about last season, but they’re far from over. As we move into winter, we’re going for party-ready sequins, metallic fabrics and abstract designs.

5. Mix and match prints

Clashing checks, tile graphics, patchworks or mismatching colour-blocks – if one print isn’t enough for you, these maxi dresses and knits should do the trick. Still not wild enough? Wear one of the jumpers with one of the dresses.
