Winter

Trends from the 80’s are back with a 2019 twist. The old rules of bright colours in the summer and dark colours in the winter no longer apply.

We are seeing a refreshing return to brighter colours used as accents to the deeper more typical shades of autumn.

Bright yellow, fuchsia, sapphire blue, kelly green, orange, red, purple and peacock teal are showing up in over-sized coats and sweaters. These brighter colours are also appearing in prints as accented pops of colour, working with rich autumn shades and earthy browns.

Look out for: Bold colour. Strong shoulders. Colour blocking. Geometric prints. Over-sized outerwear. Puffy Sleeves. Clashing prints. Athletic inspired fashion. Ruffles. Leather.

Cozy comfortable silhouettes combining print, colour and texture with patchwork prints; including paisley, foulard, geometric, wallpaper floral and calico at the forefront.

Keep watch for: Artisan stripes and geometric prints. Scarf prints. Equestrian prints. Fair Isle sweaters. Faux fur. Aztec motifs. Denim. Suede. Corduroy. Leather. Sherpa. Melange knits. Ruffled dresses. Western style shirts.

Faux leather & fur are making a comeback; looking more realistic than ever before.

Typical autumn colours in handcrafted looks with a western edge. Mustard, orange, olive, rust, cognac, brick, plum, chocolate, teal and camel.

Top designers are showing soft leather dresses in vibrant colours. Porcelain blue, butterscotch, cognac, deep red, mustard, olive, purple and black. The leather trench coat also headed down the runways.

Fur is equally important for the season. Colourful sherpa, shearling and long hair fur in jackets and coats, as well as accents for collars and cuffs. Vinyl & plasticized trench coats are also trending this Fall.

What to watch for: Clear vinyl for rain wear. Printed vinyl. Shiny Vinyl in bold colours. Sherpa. Shearling. Leather dresses. Printed leather. Bonded leather to fur. Printed fur. Camouflage. Trench coats. Vests. Patchwork suede and sherpa. Faux fur.

Head back to the future with silver metallic!

Special Occasion dressing is looking icy cool with: Chunky sequin dresses. Sweater knits with silver lurex. Chiffon prints and solids with silver lurex stripes. Stretch faux leather knit activewear in silver grey. Silver grey lace. Silver satin. Silver lame. Sequined striped suiting. Silver on black brocade prints. Iridescent hologram. Ruffles in silver grey knit. Crinkled silver texture. Silver embroidered florals. Silver faux leather.

Soft and luxurious faux fur is ideal for vests, coats, fashion accessories, cozy blankets, crafts and more and comes in so many styles.
