A/W 2008 trend forecast

Ok, i have had a look at the highstreet preview's for next season and Tartan seems to be a very strong trend as seen in the Miss Selfridge, New Look, River Island, Next and pretty much all of the other highstreet collections in particular the tartan skirt.

Another big one that's been carried on from this season will be the 70's trend ie wide legged, flared trousers etc.

And if you like pussybow blouses then your in for a treat as you'll find them pretty much every highstreet store this autumn.

Another trend that will be carried on but will be a little more exaggerated is the Architectural shoe trend, like these ones far left from Miu Miu £610 and these quite bizarre plum coloured ones from Dior priced at £490, so keep your eye out for some more unusual shoes this autumn, the Architectural trend will also work its way into our accessories which will be really unusual shapes and sizes, in particular bangles.

And the shoeboot will still be going strong for Autumn too, plus a surprise shoe trend will be bejewelled flats that are said to become fashionable evening wear.

The Military jacket that was big a couple of years ago will also make a big come back next season, so time to dig yours out from the back of the wardrobe ladies!

The key colour trends will be -

  • Grey as seen in the A/W catwalk collections of Nichole Farhi, Bora Aksu, Christopher Kane and Gareth Pugh who's entire collection was Grey, although i little weird if you ask me!
  • Khaki Green
  • Khaki Beige
  • Plum & Purple
  • Navy

And the key fabrics will be Silk, Lace and Wool.

Well ladies, i hope that sets you up for planning your winter wardrobe!
