Pink to Punk - A/W13 Fashion Trends

Go Large
Big is finally considered beautiful this season! Volume is turned to the max as designers make outerwear suitable for giants, pilling on the layers, securing everything with huge fastenings to match. Graphic silhouettes and dropped shoulders are a big feature, focusing on creating curved lines rather than harsh structure.

London has been exceptionally lucky this year, with a surprisingly long and hot summer! However, it seems autumn managed to creep up on us once again with a sudden and unexpected wet and windy week.
With the reveal of Spring/Summer 2014 collections during Fashion Week I was actually going to do a SS/14 trends post, but with autumn now upon us, I thought it would make more sense to recap this seasons (AW13) trends as we prepare the cold and wet weather that inevitably lies ahead...

...chin up, it's the perfect excuse for a shopping spree (well that's how I'm convincing myself)! :)
