Falling forward

As New York fashion week kicks off the crazy domino effect of fashion weeks around the world I can’t help but not be interested. I mean of course I want to know what everyone’s wearing to & from the shows ~ you know I love a good people watch! ~ but with regards to seeing what we’re all going to be seeing in the shops & on the streets come Spring 2014? Meh….I ain’t so bothered.

I can literally pinpoint Autumns arrival to last Friday. There was a chill in the air come 6pm and for the first time in ages I had to put a scarf in my bag for ‘later’. Why I’ve put my later in inverted commas I’ve no idea but what I meant was that those shoulders and sweet decollatage could not have been bare and bracing themselves against the cool winds of September come 11pm ~ Later. It’s cardi in the house time, socks on in the evening and perhaps a transitional coat or two time.

I’m sad. I’m always sad when summer leaves us and heads of somewhere else to have fun and flanter but I’m slowly but surely coming round to thinking about my autumn winter wardrobe. THERE! I’ve said it. I’m on the turn. If you can remember back to earlier in the year when we were bombarded with Autumn/Winter 13/14 images of what the catwalk produced then lucky you. If not here be a list of favourites that I shall be championing this coming season:

~ Think pink ~ 

pink coat

The pink coat is THE coat for this season. It’ll be thrown in our faces like a big pink blancmange and come February we’ll be sick of the sight of them. For now though I am embracing the trend as I am already the proud owner of a beautiful angel delight coloured winter pinky coat from NYC

~ Plus size ~

If you are going to go for rose hued outer garment then make sure it ~ and all your other coats {you know how I feel about coats} ~ are oversized. You want them to swamp you so much that should another person need to get in there with you, you can accomadate.

Again, I have already been channeling the ‘could be wearing your plus 6’4″ boyfriends coat’ look and love it. You can wear anything underneath and still get your coat over the top of it! Just make sure that your pins poking out the bottom are sleek ~tights, fitted trews ~ and your hair is up, scraped, under a fitted hat to avoid the Hagrid look.

~ Kilt crazy ~ 

Sometimes I am just too ahead of the game and often looked at like I’m all out of wack {this happens quite often} but then certain trends catch up with my trailblazing ass and I am suddenly seen as forward thinking and innovative {yeah this doesn’t happen that often} I am of course talking about tartan and THE KILT that will {like the blancmange coat} be so saturated by next spring no one will want to see one for love nor money. If you can wear the print without looking too try hard DO IT. If it’s out of character and would simply look odd on you ~ STEER CLEAR.

I’ve started a Tartan Army album over on RSNK’s FB page where I shall be hopefully adding more inspiration this winter.

~Sweater suit~

You know I LOVE a skirt suit and I couldn’t be happier that the evolution of the skirt suit has morphed into something that I want to wear EVERY SINGLE DAY! Essentially it’s just a joomp and a skirt put together so not really the most forward thinking of trends and I’m sure everyone’s been ahead of this game at some point in their lives but still. I’m in love. Same prints/patterns/colours are a defo must and above all this is going to be a trend that will be so comfy I will have no trouble daytime napping in it. heading from day into night with it.

~ MaN uP~

Is it bad that I feel like I want to dress like Louis from One Direction at the moment?

For those of you unfamiliar with this wee whippersnappers who are taking over the world ~ Louis’ the one in the middle and I would have absolutely no qualms in wearing his entire outfit. Having been a tomboy until the age of 25 I often hark back to my masculine days of jeans, trainers and short hair. I then dismiss those thoughts and remember that I’m not at University in the 90’s anymore. But on occasion I so wish my WO~man hips were a little slimmer and the legs a little longer so that I could look like a member of a boyband.

It’s going to be a masculine winter and I am looking forward to the challenge ~ as I’ve done before ~ of making m a little more fem.

SO it’s now over to you my Shoelets ~

I’ve told you what I’ll be wearing for the shorter days and the colder nights?

What trends are you getting excited about and which ones are you leaving at the door? 

Who’s going for the punk look?
