Quirky Autumn Fashion Trends to Try This Season

fashion trends, silver

We love fall fashion, giving us a chance to work layers and earth tones into our usual wardrobe. But it’s easy to get tired of cardigans and cable-knit tights. If you want to push the envelope with your autumnal fashion next season, fortunately the A/W 2017 runways were awash with quirky, unique looks to try out at any budget. Here are a few of the kookiest trends that you’ll want to put into rotation immediately.

Shimmer in Silver

Put on your silver lamé because the Space Age is back, baby! The Chanel runway even featured a rocket launch pad to blast off shiny, silvery new fashions with no shortage of 60s appeal. Foil was used as a fabric in the Christopher Kane show, while chainmail was utilised to fierce effect by JW Andersen in the autumn 2017 collection. You can get the look by working space age fabrics and chunky silver jewellery into your wardrobe this season. Look for high-shine fabrics and plenty of new-wave plastics, including PVC accessories. A pair of go-go boots is a must.

Granny Inspirations

If you live in a cooler climate, there’s no better way to snuggle up into the season than with a soft, well-worn sweater. This year, look at your gran for inspiration. Granny knits and vintage florals are majorly in vogue at the moment. To update the granny cardigan, look for eye-catching embellishments like pearls, shiny buttons, or unique patches. Floral prints will be seen everywhere this season, and you can go outlandish by choosing a full-on princess gown.

Insta-ready Beauty

As we say goodbye to summer, it’s also time to bid adieu to festival beauty trends like glitter boobs and unicorn nails. However, this doesn’t mean that you have to cut out all of this year’s unusual beauty trends. So far, 2017 has been all about unique beauty trends that beg to be shared on Instagram. Keep on trying out looks like feathered eyebrows, mermaid hair, and jewel tones. If you want to update your beauty style, bring in some richer tones and metallic shades for the autumn.

3D Accessories

Wearing quirky accessories is a good way to try out some of the season’s weirdest looks without fully committing. Feathers are very hot right now, so look for hats, skirts, and dresses with feathery trims. Plush toys and costume-inspired 3D handbags are also a strong look. Think ride-on fancy dress costumes to get some inspirations, and apply these to your day-to-day style to turn heads.

Tonal Plaids

The 1970s have been serving as inspiration for the past few seasons now, and in autumn it will be all about plaids. Rather than the 90s grunge looks, these plaids are loud and proud. They’ve been seen in everything from Prada coats to Jenny Packham gowns. Combine the new 70s plaids with the trend for tonal dressing, to find a tone that’s flattering for your skin tone and style.
