You Might Think It’s Summer, But…


First of all, here in the UK it's not (nope, it's rather fresh and stormy, [BIG sigh]) and also hanging around on airports gave me time to study the winter catwalk reports, and my conclusion to what we will all want/need come autumn is:

· High heeled biker boots (bye-bye ankle boot, it's all about the laces now!)
· BIIIG sweaters over long skirts
· Long gloves (the longer the better, at least up to the elbow) and skinny belts
· A parka and/or a floor-sweeping coat. Or if you are the flamboyant type: a cape
· A floral dress (yeap, the summer print is all the rave this winter - according to Ralph Lauren)
· High waisted trousers (70s or 80s style, both fine)
· A 50s tailored dress (BWH – boobs, waist, hips is the new mantra according to Mr Jacobs and Mrs Prada)
· A lady-like handbag (backpacks are soooo over)

I know it's early, but have you already diagnosed your favourite winter trend?

Happy Weekend! Hugs & Kisses!

Connie @ SogniESorrisi said...

Shearling, I think, but I am trying so hard not to even look. I need to enjoy summer while it is here!

Well, I did snaffle the most glorious black boots with 6inch heels in TopShop's sale today.
It'll be a vintage cape, maxi dresses with sleeves and a rather OTT black leather hat with a sheepskin trim for me and when it all gets too much I'll be on the first flight to Goa for the rest of the winter.

I've been thinking of fall so much! I really should live in a place where you can wear boots and coats year round.

Leia said...

When it's winter, I'm desperately praying for summer... so I'm forcing myself NOT to look at the winter trends because I really should just be living in the moment and enjoying the here and now!

(Shhhh, I'm looking forward to 50s dresses/skirts, I did not look at the catwalk I did not look at the catwalk)

I'm already getting geared up for fall, hehe.

Isabel said...

i refuse to think about winter now. lol

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

I've been thinking for sure. Especially now that fall fashion is in the mags. Dying for the Burberry booties and some of the coats. Just dying!

Have a wonderful weekend honey!!! xoxo

Vinda Sonata said...

high heeled biker boots are very, very hot. i'm currently looking for a perfect pair too. i love capes for their mysterious effects, by the way, the ankle boot in the first set of pictures is very hot!

jules @ The Diversion Project said...

it's winter here in oz and i'm so flipping over it already! i'd probably like it more if i had any of these shoes. fabulous.

shari @ little blue deer said...

Oh my, I am ALL about fall clothes. I hate summer, it's too hot (I probably would be happy moving to London), so when the fall styles start to come out, I get so excited! You just made me very happy! I am all about ladylike, I will be very happy with 50s-style dresses and long gloves. Of course, I have biker boots, but they're flats, strike out. XO!

naomemandeflores said...

I love lady-like handbags, they're so much cuter than backpacks! Favorite trend for all seasons!

ilovecoolthings said...

shit i have so much on my list for fall it's ridiculous. Two of my fave things i have on order though are a fur lined parka/military jacket (it's so gorgeous it's disgusting - and i ordered the color washed grey as i figure everyone will be doing olive and i already have one in olive). The second is a black wool coat that is lined in black fur and has massive shearling cuffs.... very luxurious and ridiculously beautiful..... it's super stinking hot in toronto right now... will be in London in August and am hoping the weather won't be too bad!

drollgirl said...

it is miserably hot here right now. POSITIVELY ROASTING. i just can't stand it. but i have to. fall is MONTHS AWAY. and that makes me frown. bleh!!!!

hope you have a fabulous window!

Miss Violet Bell said...

What a fantastic list!
I'm actually very excited about some of these trends!

Happy weekend!

Upasna said...

it feels so much more feminine, that I Like. Somehow I'm always craving the winter in every season...

featherbrain said...

I liked your list! It really can help me this time because I can't think about winter clothing now since hot sumer days started here like three weeks ago haha
Thanks for the great post :)

Sniff said...

No - no planning for my fall wardrobe here! I haven't even opened the fall catalogues I've gotten from various clothing companies. Our summer is so short, and I fully intend to enjoy it while it lasts. Feels like I've just packed away my winter clothes and started to enjoy my summer stuff.

Ask me again come September... ;)

Am not thinking about Winter fashion as of yet;-)

Tanvi said...

I totally like dressing for Winters. I think I am the only one. I love the coats, leggings, boots, scarfs, everything. It has it's own charm. And after this spread I have chosen I want the biker high heels with laces [shoes addict, that I am! :)]

Angie Muresan said...

I don't think I can wear biiig sweaters over long skirts. I'll look like a nun.

WeShop said...

I'm definitely going to be buying a camel coat - maybe in a cape style.

Already got my faux fur gilet.

Will be looking out for fur-lined biker boots. xx
