Yet again the summer has zipped by and is coming to an end just as we’ve really got into the swing of summer dressing. Sandals are comfortably worn-in while jeans have enjoyed a well-earned rest. The changing season may be beautiful but it can be hard to feel inspired by autumn fashion after the freedom of summer. However, there’s a lot to look forward to fashion-wise next season and we’ve picked out our favourite five trends for AW17 here.
Red. All shades from deepest maroon to bright scarlet were in abundance at the Autumn Winter shows, often worn head-to-toe, but this is a trend we can all embrace to whatever degree you’re comfortable with. Gold accessories work wonderfully with red and we’ve increased our gold collections for the season. Look out for these launching here next week, including the Essential necklace and drop earrings now available on gold. Our pink pearls also contrast beautifully with red tones.
Dazzle & Shine. It’s the season for dressing up and shiny fabrics or glitter embellishments are big autumn trends. Our Lucia Couture Pearl & Pyrite Necklace and Bracelet will add sparkle to any outfit, while the Cocktail Pearl & Diamond Earrings are a dazzling finishing touch.
Hats. From felt to fur, vintage inspired hats are high on the AW17 trend list. It’s time to invest in a pair of statement pearl studs, such as our Couture Pearl Studs in Silver, to accessorise your favourite headgear. A pearl rope will complete your vintage look.
Power dressing. We’re often sceptical that what’s reported in the fashion press will really catch on, yet soon enough we’re all wearing a version of it. Feminine tailoring is making a comeback but a more relaxed iteration of the power suit. The new earrings from our Pearl Edge Collectionare perfect for women who mean business.
Feminine and floral. This year’s enduring trend for romance-inspired fashion continues into winter with floaty mid-length skirts, lacy tights and folksy patterns. Of course, pearls are the perfect accessories and our Essential Luxe collection offers plenty of styles for the contemporary feminine look.
