Autumn and Winter Fashion 2012

Whilst I’m sure many of us won’t notice the change in weather between summer and autumn we’ll all certainly notice the change in style! It will be a long time before we get our pins out again; now we get to focus on something more Irish; layering! It is one of the top trends this season and all over the high fashion runways, from the catwalks of Marc Jacobs right through to Louis Vuitton and Chanel. And isn’t it finally a trend we can all pull off? There are many ways to do this, starting with the current look on the runways of New York and Paris. Designers are teaming skirts, dresses and longer tops with trousers, with most being slim fit. This method has been tried and tested many times by myself and I can confirm it is extremely warm and cosy! Furthermore, teaming a big, over-sized scarf or snood and a woollen hat with an outfit is always a classic winter warmer! However, if you want to stand out using clashing colours is recommended and brightens up the winter months. Your clothes don’t have to be as dull as the weather in winter! Why not be unique and stand out? Contrastingly to typical winter wear big and bold floral prints are in for autumn and winter. These are not pretty and prim, ditsy floral prints but in your face stand out patterns and offer a fresh, yet powerful approach towards autumn and winter fashion, without looking like you should be in Hawaii in the cold winter winds on Hill Street! If colour and print isn’t really your style you’re in luck with gothic and black leather also coming back into play, so if you’re one for your clothes meeting the mood and atmosphere of your environment then this trend is your you! Black doesn’t always have to be boring! Many designers have even made floor length black leather ball gowns! This may also be a trend for you 50 Shades of Grey fanatics but we’ll say nothing more about that! Ultimately, in my opinion, with the wide variety of styles out and about this season I really think there is something for everyone trending at the minute! You just have to make it work for you. And remember; if you’re lost for some fun in your winter wardrobe then wear a funny standout hat to spice up your style. If the cooky designs and ideas of autumn, winter 2012 are good enough for the stylish streets of New York then they’re good enough for Newry!
