By no stretch of the imagination could I claim to be experiencing Fall weather. As the end of November nears, it is pretty much still high 80’s (Fahrenheit) all the time with no signs of cooling down anytime soon (Thanks Global warming!). As you may know or have guessed by now, I live in the Caribbean where it is pretty much summer year round. Unfortunately for us who reside in warmer climates, fashion caters to those who actually observe seasonal weather. For at least six months of the year, persons like myself are left to sort through a maize of sweaters, coats and boots hoping to find some trendy hot weather appropriate clothing to tide us over until the Spring/Summer fashion season.
However, all is not lost. If you’re like me, and prefer to be trendy and stylish yet practical year round, no matter where you live, then keep reading :). These three Autumn/Winter ’17 clothing trends are chic, stylish and perfect for any weather!
So let’s get straight into it.
1.) Check, Please!
If you’re into fashion even slightly then I’m sure you’ve seen this print everywhere, especially on Instagram, worn effortlessly by all of our favourite celebrities and fashion bloggers. I love smart, tailored, timeless patterns and pieces and this trend is giving me so much life. The neutral tone of the print makes it easy to style while also adding a very ‘put together’ or dressy element to any outfit. I chose a check blazer from Missguided for my first piece but there are several tailored trousers in this print I am lusting after on some of my favourite websites as well. See here and here.
2.) Mini – Skirts
I know what you’re thinking, miniskirts in winter? Sure, why not! It’s all about the layers. Depending on how cold it is you can choose to bare it all or instead op for super thick tights. If you’re feeling daring why not try wearing your favourite mini skirt over your jeans/trousers (yes, that’s a thing!). Since it is ridiculously hot here (Fall who?), I, of course, bared it all in this cute leather mini skirt from New Look.
3.) Statement Tees
As predicted in my Best Summer Trends blog from earlier this year, statement/slogan tees are still popular for the Autumn/Winter season. I can definitely understand why this trend continues to live on. T-shirts are comfy and versatile, a great wardrobe essential that you can rely on year round. Even better if they allow you to express your inner feelings, thoughts and identity. I am all about female empowerment, so when I saw this ‘feminist’ tee on Missguided, I knew I had to have it. I love the simplicity of the tee and the understated yet powerful message.
