With another chapter closing on our most recent fashion weeks across the globe, the buzz of next autumns latest fashion trends are beginning to bubble to the surface. From Tom Ford to Burberry and Saint Lauren to Christian Dior, the runways never ceased to amaze the avidly awaiting fashion crowd in the audience.
For the fabulous and fashion-loving, modest dressing woman, there was a plethora of options to excite for the next cool season. We saw trends evolving from season to season, such as trouser suits, as well as stunning eveningwear from the likes of Halpern and Emilia Wickstead. As always, there was a wide range of furs to behold in a montage of bright palettes, neutrals and prints, including animal and floral.
However, there were also a couple of surprise appearances to look forward to, ensuring that we at Modisme, will be awaiting autumn with bated breath, for what is sure to be a fantastically glamorous season of fashion. Here are our top 5 trends, sure to fit effortlessly into your modest wardrobe.
Tartan & Tweed
Michael Kors, Max Mara & Christian Dior
This season, we saw tweeds and tartans, plaid and checks of all shapes and sizes making their way down the runway. From blue tartan puffer jackets at Michael Kors to full, voluminous wool tartan skirts at Max Mara, the look was oversized, overstated and overtly covered in style. For a more discreet variation, Christian Dior teamed soft plaid midi’s with chunky, slouchy knitwear, a look we can imagine littering the streets of London next autumn time.
Sequins & Sparkle
Dolce & Gabbana, Chloe & Halpern
Sparkle continued from autumn/winter ’17 into spring/summer ’18 and it’s not slowing down. The autumn 18 looks were OTT glam, head-to-toe shimmer and colours from every palette. Halpern showed us sequined cat suits with half-and-half legs, Chloe did shimmering knits and Dolce & Gabbana went to another level with their pairing of longline sequin sweaters and wide-leg trousers. Don’t miss the accessories too.
Michael Kors, Victoria Beckham & Tom Ford
Leopard is a classic but this season it’s going to be the main event. It’s starting to build already for spring and by autumn, head-to-toe animal will be more than acceptable. Michael Kors played it slightly safe with leopard accessories over camel and Victoria Beckham kept it chic with a leopard trench coat (we want this now). Tom Ford went all out for leopard with fiery red and accessories to match.
Prabul, Gurung, Chloe & Jil Sander
Knits are always key for the season but this time the trend was oversized, slouchy and perfect for the modest dresser. Prabul Gurung added huge scarfs to the looks and Chloe and Jil Sander opted for swamping jumper dresses and maxi skirts.
Michael Kors, Richard Malone & Max Mara
Finally, mixing prints and patterns was all over the runways as one of the most stand-out trends altogether. Blending the leopard trend with the tartan look was key for many brands. Michael Kors mix and matched tartan, leopard and floral for a bold take on the look and Richard Malone paired herringbone with stripes, leaving a lasting impression.
