Autumn-Winter Fashion Trends You Need To Follow This Season

Summers are gone, so it’s time to bid adieu to all those flowy floral dresses and embrace the autumn/winter fashion. The autumn-winter fashion trends are classic and tempting. Some of the new looks for the season have already hit the high-end fashion stores in advance. The autumn-winter 2018 is everything loud, shiny, feely, and touchy.

It is the best time for fashion enthusiasts as new-styles make their way to the stores. The idea of picking new outfits for the upcoming season can be overwhelming. Here’s a look at the biggest trends to invest which are sure to make a statement this season:

Animal Charm

Animal Charm

Without mentioning animal print, it is not possible to talk about the autumn/winter season. It’s time you buy a leopard print silk midi skirt and faux snakeskin ankle boots along with a zebra print dress. Stripes and spots are going to be a huge hit this season. Animal prints are an amalgamation of wild and bold which gives the wearer a fierce attitude.

Checks Back in Action

Checks Back in Action

Back in 1995, people were crazy for a bright coloured plaid suit, and Cher Horowitz was the ultimate style icon. Then Versace brought it back in the nineties. Fendi has brought a print that will give your work-wear a rebellion touch. After animal print, checkered plaid takes the second position as the print of the season.

The Seventies Revisited

The Seventies Revisited

The ramps always witness a reincarnation of the seventies from the crop of trouser and massive fringing to smudgy coloured prints. This season, brown colour from seventies is here to rule. Brown might be the colour you always shy away from but it is going to be the shade of the season. You can wear brown all season as there are various hues to choose from such as tobacco, caramel, chestnut, and mahogany.

Pretty Short Dresses

Pretty Short dresses

Yet another fashion trend that will rule this season is pretty short dresses. It is inspired by the second half of the 1980s which was all about silk, satin, brocade, crystals, velvet, and sequins used in abundance, but on the smallest of dresses. One can pair these dresses with extravagant jewellery, fancy bags, shoes, hair accessories, sunglasses and gloves. These dresses are going to be the most flaunted ones on Christmas parties.

Slouchy Boots

Slouchy boots

Though the cowboy, snake print boots and knee-high boots will all take the stage for autumn, one style that will take over others is the slouchy boots. Call it the revival from the 70s or the ease of tucking in your trousers and jeans; they are making a statement this season in a variety of colours.

Crystals Rule

Crystals Rule

You will see a lot of crystals this season. From sneakers to hair bands, there is a crystal item to suit every possible need. You can choose from flouncy and girlish to punk and sporty. The jewellery departments across the globe will drip in a lot of faux diamonds.

If you are someone who likes to stay updated on fashion trends, you now have an idea of what to stack in your wardrobe this season.

10 Timeless Fashion Looks of Princess Diana to Steal In 2018

Princess Diana was, undoubtedly, the fashion goddess of her time. Her sense of fashion was chic, effortless, and classic. Taking a look back at her wardrobe, we get a glimpse of her aesthetic sensibilities. In her times, Princess Diana’s wardrobe was most scrutinized. Unlike today where paparazzi follows every celebrity, the royal highness was one of the few people to be photographed everywhere she went.




Here’s a tour to the 10 classic looks of the gorgeous royal Princess that can give some of the runway models a run for their money –

1) The Wedding Attire

Valued at 9000 Euros back in 1981, Lady Diana Spencer’s lace wedding dress was complete with a 25-foot train of ivory silk taffeta. The puffed sleeves gown had a vintage appeal, and Lady Diana looked absolutely stunning in the gown. The gown was one of the most guarded secrets in the fashion industry until the day of the royal wedding. The elegant gown was designed by Elizabeth Emanuel. The gown is a reflection of the extravagance of eighties.

2) Maternity Fashion

Here you can see Princess Diana in a simple pink dress. She was 9 months pregnant yet making a fashion statement of her own with this comfortable and breezy attire. It’s a perfect dress for expecting women to feel and look fabulous.

3) Asymmetric Dress

Asymmetric Dress Princess Diana

The one-shoulder asymmetric dress with silver bugle beads by Hachi was worn by Princess at the James Bond premiere in 1983. She left all the celebs behind with this terrific cocktail dress, which can be considered stylish even today.

4) Sparkling Red Gown

The flowy glittering red evening gown donned by the gorgeous lady was specially created for her by one of her favourite designers, Bruce Oldfield. It’s a classic princess shape, frou-frou skirt with a cinched-in waist

5) Summer Midi-Dress

The summer silk midi-dress in polka dots reflects the casual side of her fashion aesthetics. She wore this for an official visit to New Zealand in 1983 and pulled it off with great panache

6) Subtle Bling

The gold lame pleated dress designed by Oldfield left the world spellbound. All those girls wearing metallic pleated skirts can take inspiration from her. She wore the stunning dress to a premiere of one of the James Bond’s movies in 1985. It was no less than an iconic moment.




7) Evening Gown

The ravishing midnight blue evening gown by Victor Edelstein was adorned by Diana for the White House State Dinner. The dress made headlines in 2013 when it was auctioned in London and bought by a man for £240000.

8) Cannes Red Carpet

The lilac dress was subtle and captivating at the same time. Designed by Catherine Walker, it was inspired by Grace Kelly. It was worn by the Princess for Cannes Red Carpet, and it instantly lit up the festival. In one of the latest auctions, it raised as much as $70000, which shows how valuable it is even today!

9) Floral Dress

The outfit by Catherine Walker is a reflection of the formal and fun side of her fashion sense. She wore the gorgeous dress at a concert in 1990.

10) Mini Dress

With this beautiful navy blue dress, it was the start of Diana’s mini-dress era. She wore this stunning number at a concert in 1991. With a hemline above her knee, it was the beginning of her wardrobe revamp giving a ditch to her restricting style guide.

These dresses show why Princess Diana was a fashion icon for many and is still an inspiration for millennial.

Street Fashion trends and tips for women

Street fashion was, is and will be in vogue. There is perhaps something unlikable about street styling. If you are a die-hard fan of street fashion, then you should definitely dope on these amazing street style items and trends, cherry-picked for the fashionista in you. Here is the comprehensive list-

A single statement earring




A single statement earring: Well, this is nothing new. A number of people have tried this idea before. But the question that arises here is- are you game for this style? Yes, you! Don’t fear dissymmetry; being too symmetrical is a passé now. Flaunt a statement earring in one of the ears and simply rock the world.

Stripe it out

Stripe it out! Vertical stripe pants are a street style lovers’ favourite. Whether you team them up with slouchy tops or well-fitted shirts, you can’ simply go wrong with your looks.

Elegant blazers

Elegant blazers! If you are one of those crazy fashion lovers who want their street style items to radiate that uptown feel too, then you should definitely go for a slightly oversized blazer. With the right type and colour of top to complete the look with, you can make your blazer scream out style.

Evergreen polka dots

Evergreen polka dots: Street styling can never be complete without something polka dotted. Whether it’s a puffed shirt, a shade with thick frames, a bag or a pair of the bottom, if it’s polka dotted, it’s street ready. A pair of high waist jeans, oval framed shades, middle-parted hair and a polka dotted crop jacket are all that you need to look like a bombshell this season. Haven’t tried yet? Come on!




Fanny packs are back

Fanny packs are back! A fanny pack never really went out of fashion. But the varieties that you see today can make all earlier styles feel intimidated. Opt for a style that suits your personality best, and get set to slay.

Those ever cool berets

Those ever cool berets! If you thought berets are outmoded now, you couldn’t be more wrong. Berets are back, and they are back with a bang. With the right colour and the fabric, you are simply going to look out-of-this-world. Yes, don’t forget to flaunt your shaggy hair underneath the cool beret for that much-needed downtown look.

Net bags are the order of the day

Net bags are the order of the day! If you don’t have a net bag, you sure don’t figure in the list of craziest street style lovers. A net bag is a rage these days, and with gaudy colours, they look heavenly. The kind of casual feel net bags ooze out is, in one word, ‘matchless.’

Kitten heel mania

Kitten heel mania! Gone are the days when kitten heels were considered unfashionable, today they are the dream pair of shoes for every street style lover. For that extra dash of oomph, just pick the carmine red pair from the market.

Say yes to cowboy boots

Say ‘yes’ to cowboy boots! Cowboy boots are definitely the new in-thing, and with ankle-length jeans, they simply look bold.

It’s not always uptown elegance that rocks one’s look; sometimes that downtown flavour is also needed to tickle the fashion taste buds. If you think you can carry the latter better, then trying out these items and styles mentioned above is a must.

Ooze out that rugged look

Hauntingly hot

Hauntingly hot! Want to look like a killer this winter? Well, take out your denim mini skirt and pair it up with your most favourite chunky white sweater.

Simple is special

Simple is special! Keeping your winter blues at bay won’t be a daunting task with this amazing dressing idea. Just team your oversized sweater with a slightly bell-bottomed pair of paints in floral print, and you will look out-of-this-world! Make sure you keep away from making things get too ‘matchy-matchy’ by carrying a bag that’s in contrast to the colour and design of the sweater as well as the bottoms.

Looking stylish in winters is an uphill task for many women, mostly because winter clothes look bulky. With these tips on how to cash on the bulkiness itself, you will become the fashion guru your peers will look up to. So, what makes you wait?
