Autumn Fashion Trends 2021

WOMEN

Crochet & Patchwork

Thanks to Lockdown, we have become quite DIY creative at home with our own projects and this has materialised on the catwalk with high end designers featuring plenty of these styles.

The Mega Tote or tiny purse.

The bigger the better and must be slung over your shoulder, Santa style.

Or go tiny with an itty-bitty purse, just big enough for your lipstick.

Preppy Punk

Kilt mini-skirts, berets, safety pin badges, leather and big stompy boots.

Think Gossip Girl meets The Adams Family.

Hearts

Red Hearts on your chest or accessorise with hearts.

Catsuits

The ready for anything superhero trend, in knits and retro prints.

Marigolds

Canary yellow gloves are not just for scrubbing. Seen everywhere with rolled up sleeves at all the shows – but mostly in pink.

Yeti Boots

Snow boots worn with your slinkiest slip dress for evening wear is my favourite trend ever.

The Cape

This season’s coat silhouette is the thigh length cape. Must have puffy volume shoulders, worn with a minidress and boots or slimline trousers to create the belle shape.

Knitted Bonnets

Not just for babies, the bonnet is the must-have headwear this Autumn. Go for the Miu Miu knitted bonnet complete with chin strap. Wear with GOGGLES.

MEN

OUT: Skinny jeans are out. Point blank, period. If you’re wearing skinny jeans for men in 2021, we hate to say it, but we’re judging you. … Honestly, nowadays you’ll probably have a harder time finding skinny jeans than you would any other pair since retailers have even caught on to the dying trend.

Sports Sunglasses like OAKLEYS.

  • IN: Good Vibe T-Shirts. The path to positivity begins in your T-shirt drawer. 
  • Stuff with Good Pockets.
  • Long-Sleeved Polos. …
  • Bright Yellow. …
  • Patchwork Shirts. …
  • Jeans. … Wide, cropped and dark 

Stüssy and Birkenstock have crafted another variation of the perfect seasonless shoe. The iconic Boston, a staple since 1979, is crafted from single piece of suede with a rounded toe and set on a signature moulded beige suede and cork footbed. The slide-on suede silhouette comes in three distinct colours like pink and camel, and features the Stüssy logo on the edge. Ready for the sand, grass, or concrete, any time of year.

They must be worn with woolly socks, especially the pastel shades.

£100 Birkenstock.com

Tank Tops or Sweater Vests

Woolly sweater tank tops are going to be huge for men and women this Autumn. Wear over a shirt featuring a slogan like this one from Hades, who are celebrating their fifth birthday with their ‘Hunky Dory’ collection in honour of David Bowie. I’ll wear mine with bare arms.

Tie-dye Fleece Sweatshirts

I never thought I’d be typing these words but fleeces are IN for Autumn. I’m not talking about the average OAP fleece from Sports Direct either. These are called MEGA FLEECES and they have to be in a tie-dye design, like this one by GOODBOY. Wear with flared dark denim jeans.
