I was shopping last week and got really inspired. I made some notes of the stuff I saw in stores that I think are a good idea to buy now to wear this fall/winter. So I thought I’d make a little moodboard/trendfile for you guys. We don’t post about fashion that often, although I really like it, so I want to change that. Are you ready for fall fashion? I sure am! Can’t wait to get the scarves, trenchcoats and boots out of my closet.
If you want to skip all the text you can scroll down and just look at the pictures for inspiration.
One word: tartan. I saw this in stores a lot. Whether the print is on scarves or blouses or on skirts, it’s just really hot right now. But the easiest way to add this to your f/w warderobe is to buy the print on a scarf. First of all a scarf is easy to replace next season when the trend will probably be over. And on top of that scarves are not a key piece, so you don’t have to wear the print all the time. Scarves should be on your list to buy for this f/w season anyway, because scarves are great to keep from getting a cold/freezing and it’s a super fun thing to add to your outfit.
You probably already have something with the tartan print in your closet, because it was already in last season. (For example the blouse with tartan print has been on trend for quite some time now.) So now’s your time to flaunt it a little more. The best way to combine this print is to go with the classic colours for this print (red, black and white) and combine it with black, white and grey to make the print the center of attention. You should make sure you don’t have too much colours or prints going on, because that’s distracting and they will probably clash.
Next thing on my list is the trenchcoat. I love trenchcoats. They are so stylish and classy. I used to wear them all the time, then all of the sudden decided I hated them and that they we’re for losers. But now I’ve come to my senses and realize they’re fabulous. They instantly make your outfit chic. Combine them with skinny jeans, a shirt, and maybe a scarf and you’re good to go. If you dare combine it with heels and you’ll look like you’re late to your meeting to talk about how you’ll be in the New York Fashion Week next to the hotest new male model. Or is that just my imagination running wild? Anyway, mark my words: trenchcoat. are. it.
Ofcourse the oversized, chunky knit vest is also on the list. It’s so comfortable, I think this is a trend we’ve all been waiting for! It’s easy to wear, but also easy to fall back on when you don’t know what to wear. It’s like picking your favorite sweater to wear: you know it’s always a good choice. You surely won’t regret picking it, because it feels great, but you also look great! It’s a win-win kind of situation.
Maybe I just really like a chic, business look, but I also have a feeling that blazers and blouses will be really hot this season. They make you look like you own the place while you might not even know where the hell you are. Go for blazers in bright colours and keep the rest basic or go for basic blazers and combine them with awesome statement pieces. It’s up to you! Blouses are easy since they’re the only thing you need to go with some jeans and shoes. You can (almost) never go wrong with a classy, black-and-white piece.
Boots. Knee boots. Enkle boots. Boots with straps. Boots with heels. Black boots. Brown boots. Boots made of suede or made of leather. Just boots in general. (I’ve written the word boots so many times i’m beginning to doubt if it’s spelled correctly and it will probably sound weird for the rest of the week..) There’s so much choice, there’s something for everyone. Boots are always a big part of f/w fashion, so go pick your pair.
I also love this article I found on H&M about a kind-of-Serena-like style. Sadly brown doesn’t really go with anything in my closet, so I guess I just have to go with a completly new warderobe…
I hope you liked this post and that I inspired you with this fall/winter fashion ideas.
