Autumn / Winter 2016 Fashion: The Key Trends You Need to Know about

Sep 8th 2016 | fashion | lifestyle | Written by Angie Sintillate

Surreal Stripes
Horiztonal stripes are all well and good, but there's plenty of asymmetry, patch-work and contrasting layers going on too. 



Cats
From pussycat prints through to kitty jewellery and classic leopard-print, there's no shortage of ideas to get your claws into. It doesn’t matter which print you pick, just choose your favourite animal motif.



80's
Spiked stilettos are back in town, as are satin, ruching, oodles of gold jewellery, fishnet tights and asymmetric cuts. Leather and lace. 



Velvet
velvet is no longer the fabric of dark, romantic, gothic clothes, but one to be mixed into the most vibrant street styler's daytime wardrobes. You'll find it used in everything from trouser suits to thigh-high boots. Velvet is particularly good when worn with metallic accessories. Wear it crushed, coloured or top-to-toe, anything goes. 



Return Of The Mac and Puffa Coats
A new autumn season would be nothing without a good coat trend, and this year it's the return of the mac and Puffa jacket. 



Shoes
Anything goes! From 70s shapes, dainty classics to space-age silhouettes, there’s a trending shoe for all tastes.
There is a definite increase in footwear embellishments, heel shape play, all over metallics, and bold animal print & snake materials. 
Oh, and don’t give away your ankle boots or pointy toe shoes anytime soon. They’re as relevant as ever!
