Autumn fashion trends - classic tweed, curry-yellow tones and bright lips

(No Ratings Yet)

Autumn has entered its right – cold air and fiery-bright nature excite our minds no less than the new autumn collections, which are so varied this season that even the most experienced fashion minds can get confused in their nuances.

So what are the main trends this autumn season? What colours and fabrics to pick? Which lipstick colours and hairstyles are the most popular? Answers to these and many other questions can be provided by Domina Shopping in cooperation with stylist and image-maker Ellina Stobe, fashion expert Denis Shevelev, life-style blogger Alina Keller and beauty-blogger Laura Valuta.

Tweed’s victory walk and the ‘70s

«One of the most notable trends of this season is clothes made from tweed and of all kinds of colours. This thin fur and half-fur fabric is perfect for demi-season coats, rough costumes and fine sundresses,» – says Ellina Stobe. Alina Keller also emphasizes that tweed is especially popular this season – it is proven by the recent fashion week in Milan, where she observed the most stylish guests of fashion shows. At the same time, she emphasizes the popularity of long-coats and sparkling metals. ‘It’s one of my most favourite trends. Pay attention to black, silver, blue and brown colours – they can help make your image enchanting.’

Denis Shevelev believes playful dresses, fringed vests and pants made of artificial suede, supplemented boots and big hats will be perfect for fashion-conscious women this autumn season. «The wonderful style of the ‘70s can be revived with tight trousers and coats of muted dark red and dark yellow (curry) colours combined with dark blue and classic black tones. Yoga-jeans or a hybrid of jersey and jeans along with coats and knitted items will be perfect as well. It is best to pick plain Breton-striped shirts to underline the purist style with clear lines and deafened tones,» – says the fashion expert.

Art-chaos or creative mess is also popular in this season’s fashion pedestal. «Prohibition is prohibited! Create all kinds of combinations of colours, details and graphics,» – explains E.Stobe. At the same time, to create a mysterious and romantic image, she recommends using elegant lace dresses of dark colours of night, silk blouses with voluminous ruffles and white chiffon dresses combined with coarse lace embroidery to highlight the feminine mystique. To quickly improve the overall autumn image, the stylist recommends adding interesting accessories – this season’s favourite is thick scarf adorned with ornate fringe, fur and knitted braids.

Men’s fashion is dominated by darkened tones like grey and blue, which help create a clean and modern fashion style. «Contrast can be emphasized with asymmetric cut and combinations of autumn colours – dark-red and curry-yellow. Shirts are the true style factor. Jeans and sneakers can also help add to the modern style. Leather jackets can be a good addition to the autumn look. Simple and stylish,» – says Shevelev.

Expressive leather and fur boots

Confident fashion-lovers hoping to attract the attention of others will enjoy the trend for leather, fur and boots. E.Shtobe underlines that patent leather should be of bright colours and in all kinds of brave combinations. «Trapeze dresses, skirts, half-coats, footwear and accessories – patent leather can be anywhere!»

Variety of colours and fabrics works for fur clothes. «They can be made from natural and artificial materials. Experiments with length are welcome. Pick a fur coat that is best for you. It is also worth looking into botforts. Colour, material and heel size don’t matter. What is important is making sure they go above the knee and offer their owner the best feeling from wearing them,» – adds A.Keller. D.Shevelev also believes that clothes made from leather-like fabrics are especially popular this autumn.

Violet lips and black underline

Following multiple seasons when the beauty of a young face and long wavy hair were in the top, this year’s autumn-winter season offers a new look at hairstyles and make-up. «The transition to rich, expensive and expressive look and the return of lip sparkle say a lot about a new chapter in the fashion world. Red lipstick is in the trend once again, but to create a brighter accent I would recommend dark-violet lipstick,» – says beauty-blogger Laura Valuta.

She also adds that healthy skin comes to replace complicated contour techniques this autumn. Black underline for eyes remains the most popular addition to make-up. «Sparkle and metal tones will not only brighten up the eyes but also emphasize cheekbones, especially with fresh peach blush,» – adds L.Valuta.
