Trends & Tips for Autumn/Winter 2013
Posted on 12 September 2013
With the end of the summer drawing to a halt and the mornings turning distinctly fresher we find ourselves slipping ever closer into autumn. And this inevitably means our fave high street stores are now bulging with rails of brand new fashions and style trends to confuse and bamboozle us. So what to wear to keep up with the fash pack this next sartorial season? As usual it’s a heady mulching pot of wearable and not so wearable themes. We have flowers and blooms adorning trousers, skirts and dresses all moodily set off against a black back drop. We have dusky pinks and rosy hues for every item in your wardrobe. Tailoring is old fashioned womanly glamour with the waist, the bust and the hips all making a welcome return to the silhouette.
However beware the PVC and vinyl invasion – dresses, trousers and midi skirts have all fallen into its Tupperware like trap. And feathers! Unless you want to look like Emu without Rod I suggest you leave the feathered skirts to the fashion die hards. Let them look like Big Bird if they wish.
So pick your trends carefully this season and don’t whatever you do be tempted to dress head to toe in a latest look – that is exclusively the preserve of the teenage set. Instead take an element from a favourite trend and incorporate a piece here and there to keep your look fresh and modern. And don’t forget accessories too which are key to keeping your wardrobe current and stylish. So use your Jana Reinhardt jewellery to enhance and enrich your chosen outfit. Add an elegant touch here, a fun and playful edge there. Or echo a trend or a chosen colour palette. There is a piece for every look so why not treat yourself to something new and add the wow factor to your new seasonal wardrobe. Go on, you know you want to!
Embellished jumpers: Snugly and fun with sparkles and jewels, your new season jumper will be your bestest friend through the coming colder months. Continue the girly fun with a piece from Jana’s ‘Sweet Dreams’ collection - the silver goose necklace and pendent make an ideal playmate. Cute as a shiny button.
Happy shopping one and all :)
