Three Key Trends For Autumn/Winter 2013

The Fluted Midi Skirt Trend
The Midi Skirt has been huge all year, and there is a floaty twist when it 
comes to the midi this season. If the full skirt is too adventurous for you, the fluted midi skirt is a great alternative as it's very flattering and wearable. This trend was seen at Céline and Carolina Herrera and similar styles can be found at Zara and Topshop. I especially like the heavier wool fabrics as seen at Céline - try Zara's High Waist Skirt for this look (and extra warmth!)

The Muted Check Coat Trend

It goes without saying that checks/tartan/plaid is everywhere this season. I'm on the fence when it comes to checked garments, however, I have grown to like the more muted hues of this trend. Stella McCartney springs to mind for the ultimate checked coat this season and Topshop's Pale Check V Front Coat and Zara's Checked Coat follow closely behind with their interpretations of this trend. 

The Over-Knee Boot Trend
One of my growing favourites has to be the over-knee boot. Obviously Stuart Weitzman leads with the timeless 50-50 collection which averages around £400 a pair. Kurt Geiger (Vanessa Boot shown above) offer a wide range of over-knee boots which are more affordable without compromising that much needed extra inches of leather. The over-knee boot in suede is a great way to wear this trend if you want a softer, more casual look - Love the 50-50 Over Knee Boot in black suede.

Would you wear any of these key trends?

  1. I find the first two trends very unflattering. :/
    Over the knee boots are awesome though.

  2. I love the femininity of the Fluted skirt, am on the fence with the plaid trend, knee high boot are so cool.

  3. I love the various style skirts. Although my short legs would not allow. I would so love to wear them with boots this fall lol.
