‘TREND ALERT’ is the fashion world’s way of saying ‘BUY ME’ and, to put it bluntly, I say no more. Nothing screams fashion-faux more than buying into trends that shine for a moment but will tarnish the moment the leaves change colour. Summer may be over, but why should we pack up our wardrobes and make way for a new (and more expensive) look? Just check out these three easy ways to turn the Summer staple into a Winter wonder.
So, remember that floral-midi-wonder you donned for the socially distanced garden party back in July? Why put it away now? The simple addition of a white t-shirt can instantly bring that look into the next season. Layer up with stacked gold chain necklaces to add the Autumnal glimmer. I am 99.9% confident that you have the top in question and if not, Penney’s is a great place to pick up this basic piece for no more than €4. If you find yourself without the ideal dress, many shops on the high street will have their Summer stock on discount right now, so nab that discount!
While the festival seasons may have been cancelled, Summer 2020 did not cancel bucket hats. Fashionistas everywhere paired the iconic accessory with outfits all Summer long and they are not stopping now. Neutral colours, or my favourite alternative yet: faux fur, are just some of the many ways this statement is sticking around. Plus, with the infamous Autumnal weather, the hat is more of a necessity too.
While the sunshine remains for now, it is only a matter of weeks before there is a chill in the air. While tights may be the common-sense accessory, they form an even greater purpose. Tights are now more than just a 40 denier partner in crime. Brands such as Gucci and Fendi have rebranded the modest addition to a fashion statement. Detailed stitching and printed lettering are just some of the many ways we can find tights now. A quick addition to a short-suit ensemble or skirt, tights are a must in every girl’s wardrobe – or boy’s, as Harry Styles has made obvious.
