Every season there are styles that are meant to be outspoken and bold, but this is not the attire we expect to see on an everyday person. We’re here for the most wearable ongoing trends of this coming season.
The fact that plaid was everywhere in the AW18 show in Paris indicates that you should be wearing it this autumn. Balenciaga had long plaid overcoats and patchwork plaid streetwear.
Corduroy trousers were the worst thing as a child, but lately, designers can’t get enough of them. During the Milan show, there were hundreds of versions of corduroy on the runway. Even streetwear brands like Palm Angels were getting in on the corduroy action.
Leather has always and will always be around, but this year it was a sight to see, ranging from knights and armor inspired leather at Les Hommes to the luxury leather at Berluti. Leather was worked into jackets, pants and even on some shirts. There was also a smaller theme of leather paneling and detailing among the lines.
Proportion was a big thing for all designers, and this year we saw tons of new ways to shape clothes to make a statement. The biggest trend for this was oversized coats outerwear and knitwear. Oversized might be the way to go next winter.
