AW18 Top 10 Trends

AW18 Top 10 Trends

Posted by Elle on 29th Sep 2018

Oh summer, we're sad to see you go as you've been one of the best but there is also nothing like a new season. Welcome back boots, scarves, itsy Bitsy star jumpers and hello to this seasons' newest trends. 

Autumn/ Winter 18s' trends all express one key ingredient that team itsy Bitsy LOVE: Feel Good Fashion. We've picked out the top 10 stand out trends that we just can't wait to get wearing. 

1. Pleats have that clever style power that helps you easily take your look from work to weekend. It's one of those classics that instantly adds a hint of subtle attitude to your look. Rock your favourite creased piece with culottes and a thick fluffy jumper for an edgy casual look or if you're going for a more sophisticated approach style it up with a nice long high-waisted skirt.

2. It wouldn't be a new season without an 80's revival trend. You'll be seeing a rebirth of bright fluorescent styles that you probably associate with rave attire, and glaring leotards. You have reality tvs' most famous trendsetter 'Kim Kardashian West' to thank for bringing dazzling attention to this trend. If you're sat here reading this thinking "well how on earth am I going to incorporate neon into my outfits?", then we suggest toning down the bright hues by adding darker colours into your outfit.

3.  itsy Bitsy teeny weeny... make a small statement in a big way with the continuing trend of small handbags. Thanks to the duchess of style, Meghan Markle, petite bags have become the ultimate accessory as they're perfectly compact and lightweight for when you're on the move. It's the little things that count right?

4. AW18 fashion is on a time travelling journey with the 90's leather look trend making a long awaited comeback into your wardrobe. Nothing looks cooler than leather, particularly one piece we've already introduced into our rails: leather look leggings. The ultimate nine - wine building piece you won't want to take off. They can be styled with trainers and a jumper for an easy day to day vibe, a nice fitting blazer for the ultimate work attire and then a pair of heels and a silk blouse to finish for the evening.
