I can't remember the last time I did a trends post - I don't think I did any for SS17 - maybe it was AW16? Who knows! But I thought I'd do a round-up of some of my favourite trends for AW17 because there's some that I'm already rocking, and plenty more that I know will be coming into my wardrobe soon enough.

1. Red Alert
a/w trends red

My instagram this past month has been full of red: red boots, red tops, skirt, jacket, lipstick, I can't stop! I don't know why it's taken me so long to discover my love for all things red but I'm just making the most of it right now. I did a little wishlist post for all things red in the summer and am very happy that the trend is continuing into Autumn/Winter! As long as it doesn't rain all season, you can guarantee I will be wearing my Kurt Geiger babin' boots, featured in this post, 24/7.

2. Polka Dotted
a/w trends polka dots

I'm becoming such a big fan of different prints and patterns brightening up my wardrobe, so seeing polka dots everywhere for this season is a dream! It's such a simple pattern, but makes a real statement; suits everyone and every item. I picked up this top from Topshop recently (you can see more of it in this post) and also have a very nice polka dot shirt dress, seen here.

3. In Check 
grey check blazer

I'm cheating a bit and combining two trends here: check patterns and structured suits. Have you noticed the influx of grey checkered blazers everywhere?! I got sucked in and picked this number up from Missguided which you can see in this post, and when I went back to get the trousers they'd sold out. Cue me checking the site every damn day now for a restock! I don't really know why tbh; I wish I had a social calendar which gave reason for fancy suits, but alas, I do not.

My check picks:

4. Granny Cardigans
a/w trends cardigans

Y'know the best thing about Autumn/Winter fashion? Big cosy knits. Yes this jumper is 4 sizes too big and no, you will never know if I have a bra on today or cba. But cosy cardigans work almost as well. I can wear a very nice top, look presentable and have a cosy knit to warm me over the top! I have yet to purchase any chunky cardigans for this season, but this number from New Look last year (no longer available) is a very good Gucci dupe and perfect for chilly days.

My cardigan picks:

5. Sports Luxe
a/w trends sporty

Sportswear is very much having a moment right now, and also somewhat of an upgrade. Remember those Diadora popper tracksuit bottoms? All the high street brands are doing their own version. Logo tee's are everywhere, including Adidas, Nike and the rest. Who doesn't want a pair of Nike Cortez after seeing those Bella Hadid ads? But mixing sportswear with more luxe pieces seems to be wear it's at, and this sport skirt I picked up in the H&M sale is perfect for it!
