Fashion Trends for Autumn/Winter 2015

I don't usually have much time to go shopping, but I had a brief window of opportunity last weekend to look round the shops in Glasgow.  The two things at the top of my shopping list at present are boots and a winter coat (and crazy tights - more on that later!).  Before going shopping, it occurred to me that I'd recently posted articles on Twitter about the latest trends in coats and shoes.  I then tried to find these articles... a process that ended up being more time-consuming than I'd anticipated (I've posted a lot of articles on Twitter over the last few months!). It then struck me that it might be a good idea to start a Pinterest board with these articles - to make them easier to find in the future.  So, that's what I've now done!  :-)  You can find the board here.

What kind of articles will you find on this board?  They're mainly of three types:

  • articles related to the latest fashion trends
  • articles on planning individual outfits
  • articles on planning your overall wardrobe

I've gone back through my Twitter feed and have added my favourite articles from the last few months to the board.  I'll be adding new articles somewhat regularly from now on. 

I'm certainly going to find it useful - and I hope that some of you will as well!  It turns out that I have two articles on shoes and two articles on coats/jackets to look through.  :-)

On the subject of fashion and Pinterest, some of you may have noticed that I have a whole board devoted to the Autumn/Winter 2015 ready-to-wear collections.  There are 270 images on it!  These are all images that featured in the August and September issues of a number of popular UK fashion magazines.  On Pinterest, I also have boards related to particular items of clothing (for example, a whole board on 'Skirts').  I've almost finished copying over the images on the Autumn/Winter 2015 board to these other boards.  Hopefully I'll get that done in the next week.

Outfits from the Autumn/Winter collections have started being featured in our 'Outfits of the Week'. This week, we've got looks from Saint Laurent and Versace. The two patterns I've chosen for recreating these looks are Named's Sloane sweatshirt and McCall's 3830 pencil skirt.  I'm going to be doing a separate 'Pattern Spotlight' blog post on 3830 in the next few days: it's another really popular pattern!  To find out more about this week's outfit - and to see the patterns and the recommended fabrics - click here.

Last week's outfit featured Tilly and the Buttons' Francoise dress.  My favourite look was inspired by a dress by Christian Dior.  Oh my goodness - those boots!  Ok - I'm not going to buy boots like these (I'd hate to think how much they cost!).  However, I have added 'crazy tights' to my shopping list.  :-)

Regular blog readers might now be thinking, 'Did Amy blog about this outfit?'.  The answer is 'no'.  Unfortunately, things were stupendously busy last week and I didn't have time to write a blog post - my apologies.  :-(  For those of you who missed seeing this on the website last week, here are the other looks from last week's 'Outfit of the Week'.  You can find out more about the outfit here.
