My Vintage Autumn/Winter 2011/12 Trends Part 1

Vintage Clothing Trend Report Autumn/Winter 2011/12


Here we have part 1 of the hottest trends for the upcoming Autumn/Winter season...

We've had lots of fun scouring the AW catwalks and trend projections this month, and this next season is busrting with gorgeous ideas that are really fun to create. As always, we take a look at our favourite trends and give you some hints on how to create these looks the vintage clothing way...

Clash Prints

One of our favourites, this trend is set to run and run, opening a whole new chapter for the way we dress. Love that polka dot vintage top but want to wear your leopard print leggings? Got a gorgeous snakeskin vintage dress but fancy slipping on your new rose print heels? Well with Print Clash, there are no rules! The brighter and bolder the better, mixing florals, spots, animal prints, stripes and more! What combination will you come up with?

Forties Glam

One trend we're relishing this winter is the glorious forties. This super luxe look is all about drape, cut and showing off those curves. Classic 1940s vintage dresses are fitted at the top, often with buttons, and with gorgeous flattering mid length skirts, and bias cut evening gowns are even more glamorous. Also think accessories, feathers or flowers in the hair, fur capes and stoles, headscarves and gorgeous vintage shoes. Make every day a tea dance day this season!

Jewel Tones

This adds a gorgeous twist to the usual Christmas party frock, as well as adding some welcomed glamout to daytime dressing. Think jewel-toned colours like amber, emerald, ruby red, amethyst, sapphire and teal. For the office, team jewel tone vintage silk blouses with neat black pencil skirts. For date night go for jeans and a cute vintage jacket with some gorgeous jewel bright shoes. And of course you simply have to seek out a sexy jewwl tone vintage dress for the Christmas party – whether it's a 70s chiffon maxi, a 60s micro mini, 80s clingy cocktail or a 50s wiggle dress.

So there you have it - Keep a look out for part 2 were we bring you three more fabulous trends for Autumn/Winter 2011/2012.
