Autumn is the perfect time to experiment with style. The Vremena Goda Galleries team comes up with a selection of 6 ideas for autumn looks: varying from preppy style to eclecticism. Our trendy check list will help you create the perfect demi-season capsule.
The name of this style comes from the name "preparatory school" - a private prep school for wealthy children who tend to enter Ivy League universities. Each fall, preppy appears relevant. We put it down to good old school habits - knee-highs, loafers, skirts and voluminous jackets - the main attributes of the style.
A snow white collared shirt and a black airy mini skirt are perfect to create a look by all canons of preppy style. A versatile beige trench coat and high light socks with loafers, invariable attributes of this style, serve to complement the look.
It is not necessary to quote the preppy style literally, it is enough to involve key specific details into the look, such as a checkered jacket or a pleated skirt. A classic shirt can be replaced with a printed T-shirt. Gucci Diana bag, combining a classic shape with neon straps, is great to make the look complete.
Polo is one of the most popular sports for prep school students to play, so high boots in a jockey style can serve as a focal point of the entire look. If to add a midi raincoat with checkered cuffs on the sleeves and a laconic shoulder bag, a trendy and comfortable look is up and ready to go.
The quilted sewing technique appeared thousands of years ago, and in the middle of the 20th century these fashion items became casual - first they entered men’s wardrobe, and then the women's one. Over the past few years, quilted outfits have been only gaining their popularity. And no wonder: who wouldn't want to feel comfort and warmth on a rainy autumn day, as if you were wrapped in a bed-quilt?
Quilted jackets are must-have number one for fall. Such items could be seen at the shows of the largest brands like Burberry or Louis Vuitton. This season, not only jackets are quilted, but shoes, bags and skirts as well. The latter are an ideal alternative to pants and jeans. You can use them not only for a walk, but also in the office.
The perfect match for quilted skirts would be monochrome ribbed turtlenecks and oversized sweaters with a print. When it comes to shoes, opt for aprè-ski fur boots, heels or Chelsea depends only on either the occasion or mood - this skirt can be combined with any kind of shoes. Complete your look with a quilted Lady Dior bag.
Unexpected combinations of colors and textures, a mixture of various stylistic trends - all these make style eclectic. This style does not imply strict rules and here contrasts run the show. But not all eclectic looks are colorful and bright. You can also create a look very close to classical one. For example, a smart-casual look that involves sporty and business style.
A loose-fitting checkered jacket makes a perfect match for knitted joggers with a bold print. To enhance the eclectic mood, you can pich a lace blouse with ruffles on the sleeves. Complete your look with classic high heeled leather knee high boots.
For admirers of feminine looks, we recommend trying a dress with a floral print and a basic black knitted top in a lingerie or sportswear style. A laconic belt will be optimal to accentuate the waist. And for footwear, high black boots in a jockey style will work great.
Midi skirts and dresses
What is the main advantage of the midi length? Its versatility! Midi dresses and skirts are suitable for any occasion and dress code, and will also go well with both flat boots and shoes with heels. This season, the silhouette in the new look style, having appeared in the late 40s thanks to Christian Dior, is being relevant again. It is a fluffy skirt or dress, with a belt to accentuate the waist.
A mix of black and red colors makes a spectacular combination to fit perfectly into any autumn wardrobe. And the floral pattern is a versatile print optimal both for spring / summer and fall / winter looks. Complete your outfits with a dress or A-line midi skirt with jockey-style high boots.
In the fall-winter season, you can wear both a fitted and oversized jacket. The second alternative is a lot more fun: there are much more options when you select the bottom layer. Voluminous models look beneficially on any type of figure: they can both hide extra centimeters and emphasize the refinement of frail girls. By the way, you can just borrow a jacket from your boyfriend.
The looks based on a combination of diverse textures always look thrilling. A voluminous wool jacket can be complemented with a denim shirt and banana pants made of natural or artificial leather. Add a bright accent with a printed scarf, a brooch or large accessories.
The trend on monochrome patterns is still remaining strong. So, we advise you to pay attention to masculine-style pantsuits with oversized jackets. The accents of the look can be a shirt with a cheerful print and bags - this season, these are geometric models, like Coperni's, are being at the peak of popularity.
Leather gloves are an indispensable accessory for autumn. They will not only keep your hands warm, but also take care of your health and the ones around you. This season, wear watches and bracelets right over your gloves. This final stroke is sure to add elegance to the look.
