FROM THE RUNWAY: FASHION MONTH TRENDS FOR LESS

We’re fast approaching the end of fashion month; however there are so many major runways still yet to be walked and so many styles ready for us to fall in love with. Before we drown from fashion overload, let’s have a recap of the current styles we’ve seen so far this month that we should definitely be inputting into our wardrobes this season. Whether from the designers themselves or from a dupe on the high street.

Capes

They’re not just for superheroes! When I think of capes I always think back to Blair Waldorf wearing those Trina Turk and Moncler capes all those years ago.

Think flowing capes as a killer outerwear trend this autumn. The sleeveless silhouette may appear intimidating and unwearable but they can be effortlessly chic with the right styling. Chanel, Prada, Chloé, Giorgio Armani and Miu Miu have all sported capes on their runways this season, but you don’t have to break the bank to get the look. Warehouse has a stunning animal print cape for only £35.00, Pretty Little Thing and Missguided are designing blazers with a designer inspired cape sleeve. Soon, we will see capes all over the high street and I for one, can’t wait.

Ruffle Blouses

Blouses are a great way to look formal and smart but still keep a casual vibe if worn with jeans. Blouses with a little bit of ruffle add a gorgeous 3D, romantic dimension to your look. I purchased mine from Zara two years ago so I’m so glad to see their return.

Christian Dior’s creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri reportedly turned to nature for her inspiration for the latest Spring 2020 ready to wear collection, hence the romantic style blouses, botanical feel and a nature inspired runway, in order to raise awareness for the climate crisis. Milan was a wave of jungle imagery for this show and I think it was just the right backdrop for this season. Similar high street finds can also be found at Warehouse, Boohoo, ASOS, Pretty Little Thing and SHEin.

Mini Florals

Missoni blessed us with a new type of floral during Milan Fashion Week. Sometimes florals can be overpowering and some what frumpy. However, I think the smaller print is extremely flattering and perfect for a younger audience wanting to add a botanical vibe to their wardrobe without it looking dated. A gorgeous mini floral dress can be found on ASOS by Weekdays Girl. Along with this stunning button down midi skirt by Daisy Street.

Tropical Vibes

Versace pulled it out the bag this year as always with their show stopping walk by the one and only J-LO. Rocking a jungle print gown that flowed like no other. The dress that is typically known as ‘that dress’ rocked the front row. First worn in 2000, it’s no stranger to the catwalk, however it still has the same impact it always has, even 19 years later. I anticipate that we will see many high street dupes of this print within the coming months.

ASOS have similar prints in a maxi style like this one and they also have tropical print bikini cover ups, to die for co-ords and fabulous culottes by Stradivardus.

Beige Utility

I adore the utility vibe on this piece and of course the gorgeous tailoring of this two piece ensemble. The suit trend is definitely here to stay and I’m so happy about that! A very very similar utility style top can be found on ASOS for only £35. Pull & Bear also have a similar one in a lighter shade for £29.99. I’m all about power dressing and wearing tailored clothing so this Dolce and Gabbana look is my favourite from fashion month so far!
