Fashion Week Looks You’ll Want To Wear As The Weather Cools

March 17, 2024

From Paris to New York and on to Melbourne I’ve been poring over the runway looks to see what will trends will translate to our transeasonal wardrobes here in Brisbane.

There are some looks that were seen again and again from different collections. The best thing is many of these items will already be in your wardrobe.

1. Lace and Boho Chic

Get in touch with your feminine side by adding a touch of lace or sheer. From Dior to the boho looks given by Balenciaga, lace featured heavily in many collections. Isabel Marant leaned heavily into this trend. Sheer white lace was everywhere enlivened with gold accents. This time around boho chic has a more grown-up aesthetic. Pair with dark, rich colours like mulberry and forest green or try with a stylish black cape and knee-high boots. Which leads us to…

2. Knee High Boots

Ankle boots have been the boot of choice for the last few years but in 2024 knee high boots are back in a big way. They are an upgraded version this time around with sleek details and a large range of colours like cream and jewel tones. They grounded many of the runway looks. Look to Stuart Weitzman, Steve Madden, Balenciaga, Frankie4 footwear and Zara for on trend styles. Wear with straight jeans, dresses and billowy skirts.

3. Trench Coats

This perennial favourite has been given an update. You can’t go wrong with a classic trench. Look to Dior for modern options and some inspiration. Shorter cropped versions are popping up everywhere as are trenches in every hue. Why not try green, blue or orange? Denim trench coats are also big. Whatever your price point there will be a trench to suit you from the classic Burberry to Uniqlo and Badgley Mischka.

4. Double Denim

How we love all our denim for Autumn and this season you can wear it together. Denim maxis with a denim shirt look cool and labels
like Dior and Victoria Beckham have plenty of chic inspiration. Cropped denim jackets are big as are denim co – ords. Denim dresses are selling out from labels as diverse as AJE to Target.

5. Leather and Faux Leather

Regular readers know that leather is always a big part of my wardrobe and this year it was embraced by designers with elegant maxi skirts, cropped capelets and leather blazers taking centre stage. Leather with shine is right on the money. Silver and gold leather or pleather pants will be seen everywhere. Zara has a whole new leather selection you can choose from at a good price point.

6. Pink

Have I ever written a fashion write up without pink? This year it’s a beautiful rosy hued pink which was seen on the catwalks. It’s a colour that is sophisticated, feminine and very wearable. Look to Victoria Beckham, Chanel and Saint Laurent for inspiration. Adding a touch of the colour of the year – Peach Fuzz can also enliven your Autumn palette.

These are just a nod to some of the ideas that will be filtering down from the runway to our wardrobes. Also worth mentioning was animal print, which many of us have at home already. Burgundy will bring some drama to your looks. In shoes loafers, sheer ballet flats and mules are big as are 70’s wedges as seen at the Paris Chloe runway show.

Create your own unique style by playing in your wardrobes and revisiting some of these items. I’ll definitely give double denim a shot and I’ve already been playing with the many white lace pieces I already own. After a long and sweltering Aussie summer, fashion for Autumn has never looked so good.
