5 Popular A/W18 Runway Trends you will see on the High Street

Sometimes, when you look at the runway shows, it’s hard to imagine just how some of these trends will translate into the real world. There are certainly some looks that would be a little weird to rock while doing your weekly food shop! However, here are five of the most popular runway trends that you will see on the high street this season and how to make them wearable in your daily life.

Animal print

You may have noticed that every shop seems to be going crazy for animal print this season, as it is set to be the look for Autumn/Winter 2018. There are so many ways to wear animal print, whether you want to go bold and luxurious with a leopard print or zebra print dress, or perhaps for a more toned down look using just a few accessories, a faux croc or snake skin handbag or even a neck scarf will be on trend without making you feeling like Kat Slater.

Another print that you will see everywhere for Autumn/Winter 2018 is geometrical checks. This season though there is more to this trend than check coats and jackets – huge last year and going strong this season too. From Prince of Wales weaves to tartan and tweed, checks are huge news on the high-street and designer rails. 

Why not try a checked midi dress layered with a trench coats or checked wide-leg trousers with a simple button down shirt or t-shirt. Also why not experiment a little with the colour pallet? There are plenty of styles to choose from. This is a simple trend you can wear in endless ways.

Moody florals

Although we are used to seeing florals in a big way during spring and summer, this year they are being given an autumnal twist with a dark background and moody colours. This is a look that’s really easy to wear; just pair a floral dress with ankle boots or your favourite pair of trainers and tights for a classic, cosy autumn look that’s bang on trend.

Outerwear Layers

It’s finally cool to wear a coat again! Balenciaga were one of the brands that rocked the runway with a lot of layers, utilising several different types of jackets or coats to really battle the elements! You might end up looking like you’ve been playing a weird party game if you walk in the supermarket in six different coats, but don’t be afraid to layer a full length coat over a jacket. It’s finally cool to be warm!

Lust-Worthy Earrings

Everyone knows that earrings can really make and transform an outfit and where Spring/Summer was all about the large pom-pom and tassel earrings, they are taking a more festive twist for Autumn/Winter with shoulder-grazing lust-worthy earrings being a must. The Bigger the better!

So next time you feel like you don’t have anything to wear, and you’re looking for some inspiration, head to the runways and see how you can make the looks work for you! Don’t be put off by the outlandish makeup looks, scraps of material and bolder-than-bold choices. If you look for the themes consistent on the runways you can create a look that is in line with this season’s trends that is wearable and makes sense in your everyday life.

  1. I must admit I’ve fallen prey (pun totally intended) to animal prints this season. I just treated myself to a new leopard-print coat yesterday! I’m after a checked shirt next x #StayClassyMama
