Major autumn/winter trends: Velvet and cut-out tops
Who will wear THAT? I wore it in the 80s! Oh, no that’s not flattering!
Initial denial before I look at it over and over again and maybe give it a chance but that might take a while and it could be mainstream by then 😉
I have a pair of flared jeans which I hardly wear. In winter ice and snow make it difficult to pair them with high heels which is necessary because of the length. I never thought I’d consider cropped wide jeans but have seen a couple of cool outfits recently (one of them by my friend Michelle of RetroChicMama – BTW she wrote a brilliant post about menopause!) and will just cut them and see how I feel.
Trend 1: Velvet
I never put the velvet trend in question and was happy to see it in stores before it became a must-have this autumn. I love this classic, noble fabric and its subtle shine. It is soft and feels good on the skin during the cold months for daywear as well as stylish party outfits and glamorous evening looks. Ideal for the upcoming Christmas season! The “new” velvet is less fomal than in the past but usually lighter and easier to wear and style.
Trend 2: Cut-out / cold shoulder tops
The cut-out trend can be a bit more tricky to wear and when I first heard about it I was thinking of Kardashian-like bodycon dresses with a bare waist… *rollshereyes*
I do like my neckline hence I love boat necklines and off-the-shoulder tops (I have worn this floral blouse last spring) and the new cut-out (cold shoulder) tops caught my attention early. This dark green velvet jumper is from Zara. Unfortunately it is very short and I have to wear a long black layering top underneath.
Metallic block heels
Accessories are very important for my outfits and I chose golden shoes, bag and jewellery to add some sparkle to the dark colours.
My golden pumps with block heels are from Zara as well and really comfortable. I have problems with my bunions and always have to make sure my shoes cover them. I am glad currently there is quite a good selection of those type of shoes in stores which look stylish and are comfortable without giving the impression of orthopaedic shoes.
