As much as we cherished that surprise September heatwave, there’s no denying that the new season has officially arrived, bringing with it a fresh set of autumn fashion trends. Even though the chill might not have settled in as it usually does at this time of year, it’s never too early to delve into the latest seasonal styles. And let’s be honest, some of these avant-garde looks might take a little getting used to.
But setting aside the unpredictable meteorological chaos, the anticipation of the upcoming fall fashion is undeniably one of the most exhilarating aspects of welcoming the colder months. For those of us who adore layering, the mere thought of wrapping up in a stylish coat over some chic knitwear has us, dare we say it, looking forward to the cooler temperatures.
So, what are my favorite takeaways for the next season? Let’s dive in…
1. The Return of Tweed
Tweed is back in a big way this season, bringing an air of sophistication and heritage to your fall-winter wardrobe. Whether it’s a classic tweed blazer, a tailored skirt, or even a full tweed suit, this timeless fabric is making a strong comeback. Opt for rich, autumnal shades like deep burgundy or forest green for an extra dose of elegance.
2. Futuristic Metallics
Metallics have always been a winter staple, thanks to their undeniable association with the festive party season. However, in 2023, it’s not just about the shimmer; it’s about the quantity and placement of these gleaming accents.
In previous seasons, we’ve embraced hints of silver here and bursts of sequins there. But for autumn/winter 2023, there’s no need to hold back. This year, the trend demands a full-on liquid metal immersion. From head to toe, your ensemble should exude the sensation that the metallic sheen is gracefully cascading from your every limb.
Is it a bit extra? Perhaps. But in the world of fashion, that’s never a bad thing. So, prepare to shine and radiate with this dazzling twist on the metallic trend for the upcoming winter season.

3. Leather Luxe
Leather continues its reign as a fall-winter favorite, but this season, it’s all about the luxe factor. From tailored leather blazers to leather midi skirts and even leather gloves, this versatile material adds an edgy yet sophisticated touch to any outfit. Mix leather with other textures for a rich and multidimensional look.
4. Quiet Luxury
As we transition into the autumn and winter seasons, one of the most accessible trends to adopt is the concept of quiet luxury. This trend has been steadily gaining momentum in the world of fashion in recent months. It stands in stark contrast to ostentatious displays of wealth through prominent logos and instantly recognizable designer prints. Instead, quiet luxury is all about the art of subtlety.
From classic vests to impeccably tailored blazers and even well-fitted jeans, the allure of quiet luxury lies in its enduring appeal. As we look ahead to the next season, embracing this trend will prove to be a wise choice, thanks to its timeless and enduring elegance.
In the ever-evolving world of fashion, everyone is eager to discover the “color of the season.” While fuchsia has certainly made waves, courtesy of the Barbie movie, there’s a consensus among fashion aficionados that the true, on-trend hue for autumn is none other than classic red.
We’re not talking about a muted red, a subtle ruby, a deep crimson, or a rich burgundy; we’re talking about the good old-fashioned scarlet that never goes out of style and is perfect for vibrant palettes as Winter and Spring.
For those looking to earn some bonus style points, consider wearing this vibrant shade from head to toe. It’s the definitive choice to make a bold and fashionable statement this autumn. If red isn’t your go-to color, you can always add a pop of it to neutral colors for a subtle yet eye-catching look.
6. Sheer Revelation
We understand that some trends seem to linger indefinitely, but when it comes to designers constantly pushing the envelope with sheer fashion, it’s hard to resist the intrigue. As we look ahead to the next season, get ready to step up your game—both in terms of your wardrobe and your confidence—because the sheer trend is all about unveiling your inner daring.
Yes, you heard it right—gone are the days of modest slip dresses or chic trousers discreetly hidden beneath sheer layers. This autumn, it’s all about embracing the boldness of baring your undergarments. The sheer trend is set to make a significant statement, and it’s time to get on board with this audacious style revelation.
