WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PRE-FALL 2017 FASHION TRENDS

 

Welcome the new, extra-long trouser hemline: Bad news for the commute, but very flattering on shorter legs. Budget your autumn investment carefully though: wearing the pant that pools about the ankle will increase your Uber expenses. You have been warned.

 

Switch khaki and pinstripe cotton for Versace’s mulberry fatigues, and note Chloe’s combat pants, the new standard in sharp daywear has a crisp, military edge. The designer name to drop now? New York label Adam Lippes.

 

Alessandro Michele’s beloved colour pairing is big news for pre-fall. Embrace the clash: according to Valentino, Stella McCartney and Delpozo, the brasher your shades, the better.

 

It’s time to abandon the sexed-up thigh high boot – this Autumn, as a demure mood sweeps in, we’re switching to the sassy evening knee boot instead.

 

Unapologetically angular, the new wave of business-minded blazers by Hermès, Christopher Kane and Stella McCartney are edging cocktail tailoring off the agenda. Extra marks for opting into corporate grey, or cappuccino.

 

Where opaque tights were once the safe option, this year hosiery has had a rainbow makeover. Look to Fendi, Givenchy, and Creatures Of The Wind and do any shade but black.

 

Oversized proportions aren’t going anywhere for autumn. Blow the budget on an oversized floral smock dress now (we love Preen, Altuzarra and Public School) to beat the rest of the pack.
