9 Surprising Fashion Trends That Everyone Will Be Wearing This Autumn
The catwalks might validate fashion trends, but it's the streets that create them. Whether you're front row at a fashion show or people watching on the pavement, a small stylistic decision can make huge industry impact. Anyone with a creative outfit can influence the next fashion season, that's why we've sifted through the best street style from the big four fashion weeks (New York, London, Milan, and Paris Spring/Summer 2020 shows) to find you nine standout trends that will be everywhere this Autumn.
There were a few trends we spotted that have been going strong for the past year. Prairie-inspired silhouettes, like loose-fitting, billowing babydoll dresses with bishop sleeves and ruffled collars will continue to dominate dress trends well into next year. When it comes to colour trends, green is still a top contender. While neon, lime, or slime green was a big winner last season, this season welcomes all shades of pistachio, mint, sea foam, olive, and forest green to the party (especially wearing them together in a tonal look). In terms of accessories, mini bags, mid-heel mules, and kitten heels have been go-to pieces for fashion girls all year. But it was Bottega Veneta's Lido and Stretch Sandals, and Staud's Moon Vag that dominated Autumn 2019 street style.
While our favourite trends from last season continue to linger, we're making space for the fresh new trends for Autumn and Winter 2019. Some of the strongest looks of fashion month came in the form of smart suiting, strategic cutouts, boudoir-inspired styling, warm tones of terracotta, mismatched shoes, scarf prints, cinched trousers, and oversize clutches . Read ahead for a breakdown on these great trends and how to wear them for Autumn 2019 and beyond.
