I am sure all of you are extremely excited about Christmas, New Year and all the shopping that you’ll get to do before that! :) At least I am super excited and already planning to revamp my wardrobe and stock it up with some stylish fall fashion items.
As a Fashion Designer it is a part of my job to stay up-to-date on the latest fashion trends and of course it is also my hobby to do so! :) I studies the Autumn/Winter 2014-15 runway fashion, have noted down my favourite fall trends of the year and can’t wait to share them with you all :)
So, what are you waiting for?!? Scroll down and let me take you through some of the key fashion items for Autumn/Winter 2014-15 straight from the runway.
1. SPORTY CASUAL
Winter is all about wearing a loads of layers and bulky clothes and layering becomes a lot easer when done in a sporty way. If you are a fan of sportswear you have a lot more reasons to get excited about Autumn/Winter 2014-15, because sporty look is really ‘in’ this season and that too with a hot colour palatte and cool styling! Bright colours, sportswear inspired detailing and oversized jackets are the things that are rocking most of the designer collections for Winter 2014-15. It’s definitely the time to bring your sporty side out! ;)
2. CREATIVE PLEATS
Ruffles, gathers and pleats are such a great way to stay in touch with your oh! so feminine side and I am delighted to see the runway of Autumn/Winter 2014-15 fashion filled with a lot of interesting pleating techniques! Lovely flawy fabrics and loads of creative pleats are one of the key fashion elements this winter and definitely is wooing a lot of fashion lovers already! Plus a subtle winter-like colour palatte is adding an extra charm to these already innovative pieces. I am absolutely in love with this trend! What about you? :)
3. WINTER PASTELS
If you loved the pastel trend in summer I am sure you are going to love the winter version of pastels as well. With a grey undertone, pastels are here to stay all of winter 2014-15 as well. A great way to carry forward some of your favourite summer colours till the end of fall. Needless to say they are cute, pretty and a global favourite!
4. ELABORATE TEXTURE
Elegance and opulence is splashed all over the Autumn/Winter 2014-15 runway shows and elaborate textured garments are definitely the show-stoppers of the lot. Interesting textures with varieties of bead and thread work is one of the prime trends for winter 2014-15 and is definitely a must have in every wardrobe too. Go grab a dress, a jacket, a coat or just about any textured fashion item and walk out with grace and style!

All the print lovers out there, colours and prints are here to stay all through out winter! And no, you don’t have to tone down your prints to match a dark winter colour palate this time! The Autumn/Winter 2014-15 Fashion print trend is all about being funky, vibrant and quirky and wearing them will definitely help you keep your wilder side as lively as it was during summer! :)
6. ECRU ELEGANCE
Some colors are timeless and we definitely cannot have enough of them. Shades of ecru and white are such that you will want to wear them again and again, year after year. So, if white and ecru are your favourite colours, you don’t have to stop wearing them just because its winter and the temperature is dropping. In fact, ecru happens to be one of the hottest colours in the runway for fall 2014-15. So go ahead, layer up your summer whites and wear them in winter or buy some fresh ecru ensembles to look cosy and stylish this fall!
7. MILITARY AFFAIR
Military inspired collections are seen quite extensively used by many designers for Autumn/Winter 2014-15 and is sure to be one of the sought after trends for this fall. Shades of browns and greens with loose silhouettes, over-sized pockets and camouflage prints are some of the evident military themed detailing seen being adopted by designers in the runway for winter 2014-15.
8. NEON ALERT
Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you have to be hiding under thick layers of blacks, greys and browns in any way. Pick up some of these vibrant shades from the neon colour palatte of Winter 2014-15 runway and add some brightness to the gloomy weather!
9. ANDROGYNOUS ATTIRE
If you are bored of too much of florals, bright colours and feminine silhouettes from summer, add a bit of masculine touch to your wardrobe with the androgynous trend for fall 2014-15. Power suits, long over coats and boxy silhouettes are the key pieces of this trend and its sure to power pack your every day at work!
10. METALLIC MAGIC
Glitter and metallic colors brightened up the Autumn/Winter 2014-15 runway and they are sure to add some sparkle to your fall attire as well. Bring in some drama to a party or to your everyday clothing with a dash of sparkle with glittery fabrics, beadwork and high shine detailing and shine your way into the limelight.
