The weather’s really started to turn here in London. It’s getting chillier and Collier every day! (I’ve even had to start turning the heating on and the electric blanket has even made an appearance!).
Though I have to say, after the hottest summer I can remember (and hottest holiday too), I’m all for a little bit of cold weather!
I’m looking forward to snuggling up in chunky jumpers, woollen coats and cosy blankets!
Of course that means sewing up some new pieces for the season! I’ve been looking to the fashion world for some inspiration…
Here are some of the looks I found (and ideas on how I would make them!):
I love the colour and crazy embroidery on this coat! The shape and style of it reminds me of the By Hand London Rumana coat – simple, classic, single breasted, long line coat. It just shows what you do with a crazy fabric choice!
Full out leopard tracksuit anyone? Animal print seems to be back on trend in full force this season. I think I’d make my own loungewear set with the Tilly and the Buttons Stella joggers and hoodie!
I love the style of this coat. It’s a bit 70s and rather luxe yet casual, if that’s a thing! I’d make it using the Yates pattern from Grainline Studio. Make it out of a faux shearling to match the model’s! I also love that midi length ruffled dress underneath – I think a tiered skirt hack on any number of dresses would work a treat! Just add a pom pom trim!
Now that’s a super wide legged pant! I love the dramatic shape of these trousers from The Row. I think the Trend Patterns Pleated Front Trouser would totally do them justice! The pleat and pocket details look like they’d be same!
I clearly love oversized coats at the moment. I’m really drawn to the exaggerated shape of this Miu Miu coat! Try this one using the Uma coat pattern from Wear Lemonade and sizing up! I’d love to get my hands on that fabric though – it’s so dreamy!
I could go on but I won’t bore you any longer! 😂.
Needless to say, this season is going to interesting in terms of style. The 70s look seems to be staying in force. That combined with a penchant for wacky colours and print means some crazy looks might be making their way into our shops and wardrobes!
I love taking risks and choosing the “out of the box” options so this all seems to be right up my alley!
