A Very Quick A/W 2018 Women’s Fashion Roundup


Wick Confetti Fields

Things are still frenetic for us. But, I could not resist doing a quick fashion roundup. There are so many lovely clothes in the shops, right now. So, I felt that it would be a shame not to take the time to share with you some of the biggest fashion trends for A/W 2018.

The 80s are back
Just like last year, a lot of designers have chosen to rework some 80s fashion favorites. Most of them have done a brilliant job. As you can see from the range of styles here, there are some fantastic clothes available online and in the shops. It is interesting to see retailers offering an eclectic mix of cuts. Everything from semi-tailored tweed jackets to huge, baggy, bat-winged cardigans and capes. It’s a real mix, which opens up the opportunity to create a very individual look for A/W 2018.

A touch of glamour
Perhaps the most interesting trend is the fact that dressing in a glamorous way is back in style. Rich fabrics, bold patterns and interesting textures are very much in evidence.

The return of the cardigan
After being on the margins of fashion for several years, the cardigan is back. There are dozens of different cuts available. But, the style that really stands out is the longline cut. These cardigans either finish mid-thigh or mid-calf, which means they are very flattering. You could even wear some of them as an alternative to a coat, when the weather is warm enough.

Interesting boot trends
As normal, the footwear of choice is set to be boots. At this time of the year, they are the practical as well as the stylish option.
It will be interesting to see if the ruched boot takes off or not. If you do not fancy that look, opt for a pair of ankle boots instead. I have also noticed quite a few retailers stocking booties. This is another example of an iconic 80s fashion item that has been re-worked for modern consumers. If you do decide to buy a pair, just make sure that they are big enough for you to wear thick socks or tights. The fact that there will be a gap between the bottom of your trousers and the top of the bootie means your feet could feel a bit cold.

Wear pink to support cancer awareness month
If you want to support breast cancer awareness month, why not buy something pink? This year, “wear it pink” day is on the 19th of October. But, lots of organizations are planning events throughout the month. So, you will have plenty of opportunities to wear your lovely new pink clothes and raise awareness about breast cancer. Your getting involved really can make a difference.
