TREND: TONAL




Coat- Zara / Jumper- ASOS / T-shirt- Topman / Jeans- ASOS / Boots- Next (similar) / Hat - Topman (similar)


'The Camel Coat' is iconic. It's a style statement and a must have in every man's (and every woman's) wardrobe. Despite Kim and Kanye rocking the signature coat LAST year in Paris, in the build up to their anticipated wedding, it has never really lost its 'cool'. IT'S A CLASSIC. To be honest the colour 'camel' as a whole has been a huge autumnal trend, and has been for quite a few autumn/winter seasons. This particular coat, was pricey, but it was worth every penny. The fit, the colour and the texture is out of this world, despite getting it in a large a few years back when I completely overestimated my weight and size. 

I decided to pair the coat with, tonal colours as this has been an ongoing trend for quite some time now. I paired my chocolate-brown, suede jumper with a sand coloured, extreme long-line t-shirt. I feel as though the three brown-based shades create an obvious enough contrast without losing the tonal element. Ideally some rust or stone jeans would really complete this look, however I only have khaki. Yet I feel as though the khaki, adds an element of colour and isn't wayyyy out of the earthly tones and as crazy as it sounds, the colour of my skin coming through the rips in the jeans, adds another shade to the mix haha. I completed the look with some chocolate-brown desert boots, tied with sand laces, to parallel the shades of the jumper and t-shirt, and a khaki fedora to compliment the jeans.

TREND: EMBROIDERY





Coat- NEW LOOK (similar) / Roll Neck- H&M (similar) / Jeans- ASOS / Boots - OFFICE / Watch- BOSS / Cap- TOPMAN



A huge trend for summer was embroidered denim, and this trend seems to have continued through to autumn. The trend began when Gucci included embroidered denim in its spring/summer collection. It was a trend that very quickly translated from high end to high street, which you don't really see that often and I feel as though it was something that just came about rather abruptly. These embroidered jeans that I am wearing have a Japanese element to them due to the flowers and twisted vines, however most embroidered denim consist of either floral, tribal or tropical embroidery. More recently, as we go on into winter, I have noticed that there are a lot more embroidered denim jackets around, and they mainly consist of american, preppy embroidery that is normally sport orientated.  I personally love this trend at the moment, however I feel like its running its course a little, I predict that by January 'embroidered denim' won't really be a thing anymore.

TREND: GRUNGY LAYERS


Jacket- TOPMAN, Nick Grimshaw collection / Shirt- TOPMAN (similar) / T-shirt- ASOS / Jeans- TOPMAN / Boots- OFFICE 







have been looking on a few of my favourite clothing websites for new clothes to buy, and I recently came across a new trend which I completely adore.  The trend I came across was labelled 'GRUNGY LAYERS' on ASOS and its something that I've always done without it really being a 'trend' as such. I love layering different textures with similar colours to create a grungy vibe. I wouldn't describe my personal style as 'grungy' however I have quite a few pieces of clothing in my wardrobe that could be described in that way. I hope this is a trend that will stick around for a while, as I think it is something really cool and different for autumn/winter time.
