Retro Redux: 6 Major Trends for Women to Try this Fall-Winter

Get ready to cosy up to fall-winter in a refreshing splash of colour. This season is all about daring comebacks and explosive silhouettes. From pink and purple ruling the trend charts to hot red, electro furs, glitter lurex, and velvet, this winter makes more than one beautiful case for showing off your maximal side.


Add a romantic edge to sportswear with a sweetheart neckline, elevated with off-shoulder details, layers, and accessories at Dior and Prada. Unusual pairings—puff jackets and sweatshirts with dresses,full skirts with leather skinnies—are among this season’s most invigorating trends. According to Balenciaga, cool hoodies and anoraks are just what you need for formal occasions.


With the Nineties back in action with a pick and mix approach to style, it’s time to  adorn winter’s hottest accessory: statement chokers. Stock up on the bold, chunky ones (that cover the length of the neck) for an elaborate and ornate air. To add to this fab piece of accessory are guitar strap shoulder bags and David Bowie-inspired platform boots.


What is autumn-winter without a good coat trend? Forget neutrals and greys, Burberry’s glossy snake skin trenches and Celine and Prada’s rich brocades and colourful and supple leather coats are back with a vengeance.


The surprises aren’t over yet. Thanks to Isabel Marant, Saint Laurent, and Lanvin the iconic one shoulder party dress from the ’80s and ruffles are back into the limelight.


Get your shine on with sparkly coats and dresses as seen at Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, and Adam Selman. Or step into the prettiest party trend of the season with Alexander McQueen’s ethereal galaxy embellished evening wear.


Top-to-toe pink and velvet outfits were big on the runway, making it the key fabric of the season. Wear it on its own (velvet dresses are chic as hell) or mix with separates (lace, denim, or wool) for a street couture effect.

After a minimalist summer hinging on the Nineties, this winter is a delight for sore eyes. We would suggest, you hit the dance floor before the season draws to a close.
