NEW SEASON NOW
Autumn / Winter is fast approaching and that can only mean one thing – a wardrobe overhaul. We think it’s safe to say for us brits, we have had our short but sweet summer and although its mid-August, we are looking to new horizons. Can you really blame us?
With the change of season just around the corner, we are set to have a trend revamp and we don’t know about you, but that’s just the shake up our wardrobes need to coincide with this unpredictable weather.
Like much of the world right now, designers across the globe are seeking solidarity and togetherness through fashion and more so than last season, this has shone through with the trends that have evolved for this upcoming season. From multicultural references to encouraging slogans (yes, they are back for yet another season) – this Autumn / Winter is shaping up to be a good one.
RED VS BLUE
Two colours that you need to know about for this season are red and blue. Although not as daunting as previous seasonal colours, these two are classic and far more wearable. Both as sophisticated as the other, but give off contrasting vibes. Red is bold and screams ‘look at me’, whereas blue is timeless and can sometimes be more powerful low key and layered. So, what colour gets your vote this season?
MORE IS MORE
There’s something about fringing, feathers and fraying that can really make a look. Just an additional trim here or a feathery cuff there, can create dimension and flare within any outfit. So, thanks to the likes of Sonia Rykiel and Celine, we’ll be seeing a lot more of frippery this Autumn / Winter and we can’t wait. So, make sure you take inspiration from a dressing up box this upcoming season, girls!
Yes, you heard us right. They are back for another season and we for one are so thankful, because let’s be honest, what outfit would be complete without them? They truly are a fashion favourite and what’s more, the slogans are back and more powerful and punchier than ever. From Dior last season, to Versace this season, it’s all about encouragement and showing support, something OTL HQ are extremely fond of.
People often forget that the making and designing of clothes is an ancient craft, so this trend is an ode to craftsmanship and the skill behind oh-so-fabulous fashion. With references to heritage and folklore, be prepared to see an array of muted patterns and prints. This trend is all about getting creative and being inspired by a mixture of cultures, so don’t forget the number one rule - the more eclectic and artsy the better.
