1 EASY CASUAL LUXURY
Forget about strict uncomfortable clothes this autumn. One of the biggest trends, seen at fashion houses like Ralph Lauren, Celine and Sacai, is all about comfort. Focus on mixing soft luxurious materials such as suede, cashmere and wool in earthy natural tones. Investing in luxurious basics has never been more on trend.
You’ll want a look that seems casual. Let your hair out and curl it softly into easy soft casual locks. Complement with natural makeup. Focus on light weight foundation, beige earthy tones and try matching your eye shadow with your lips.
2 THE EMBELLISHED LOOK
This autumn and winter we want to dress up in embellished dresses as seen on the catwalks of Celine and Mary Katrantzou. A dark blue colour instantly makes the look more elegant.
Try a smoky eye in a new colour to complement this look. An olive green colour makes any eye colour pop. A prune coloured mascara softens the look and frames the green colour in a nice way.
3 CLASSIC & ANDROGYNOUS
This autumn we saw plenty of tuxedos and double-breasted suits on the runways of Hugo Boss, Max Mara, and Hermés. The trick is to find a style that works for you which is not quite masculine, not quite feminine, just beautifully sylphlike and androgynous. We love this white on white combo reminiscent of Bianca Jagger.
Let your face radiate femininity for a beautiful contrast. For this look to work just focus on your eyebrows and lips and keep your hair slick and chic.
4 COLOUR BLOCKING
If you’re the bold kind invest in some striking colours. This season’s rule is there are no rules to colour combining, as seen on the Dior catwalk among many others. Forget about traditional no no’s and don’t be afraid to mix complementary colours like green and red or yellow and blue.
To match your beauty look with this trend don’t be afraid to go for a bold fuchsia or an orange lip matched with silvery grey eye shadow. You will make heads turn.
5 THE STATEMENT FAUX FUR
The (faux) furs this season, seen at the catwalks of Jean Paul Gaultier, Balmain, and Saint Laurent were furrier than ever and the statement twists even more head-spinning than usual. Go for a contrasting black and white fur for cold autumn nights, and if you’re daring play with the contradictions of being dressed and undressed all at the same time by wearing a thin embellished slip dress underneath.
For an evening look you’re best off pulling your hair up to keep this look from being too over the top. A smoky eye in grey or brown and a natural pink lip keeps the look classic for any occasion.
