Cosy knits, plaid prints, and bright colours have been inspiring us this week from our favourite Instagram looks. Beyonce’s Vivienne Westwood power suit, Kendall Jenner in neon green, and Kali Uchis’ graphic sweatervest are just some of the posts sparking trends as we enter into Autumn!
Beyonce is living her Clueless fantasy in this yellow and purple plaid suit. Matching sets are absolutely in for summer, and expect them to stay for Autumn – take inspiration from Beyonce by alternating from a summer swimsuit set, for a classic patterned power suit as we move into colder weather. Paired with a mini Jacquemus bag, cat-eye sunnies, and slip-on heels, she keeps the accessories simple to balance with such a bold print.
Space-age chic is trendy again, thanks to miss Olivia Rodrigo. This inspiring look is one of many from her recent ‘brutal’ music video. The metallic silver matching set, with bright orange hair, certainly makes a statement – add some shiny fabrics to your wardrobe for a futuristic touch. Space age fashion was a major trend of the 1960s, so perhaps after a groovy 70s summer, we are entering spacey chic for autumn.
Addison Rae is channelling old Hollywood in this Marilyn-esque Versace dress. The ruffled hem perfectly plays into current trends of high-low dresses, whilst the sleek, silk fabric makes the garment ideal for evening wear. This look changes up the simple slip dress with a peekaboo-cut out and ruched pleats coming in at the waist.
Kali Uchis is teaching us how to style graphic knits for Autumn. For a head-to-toe cosy look follow Kali’s advice – she pairs an oversized white sweater vest with wide-leg knitted trousers. Simply add some chunky boots, a knitted hat, and mini bag for a stylish, and incredibly comfortable, outfit.
With a few days of sunshine still left of summer, Bella Hadid looks stylish in Comme des Garcons gingham. Just because temperatures may begin to drop does not mean we have to sacrifice our summer prints – follow Bella’s advice by adopting long-sleeves and knee-high black boots for a stylish, yet practical look, as we transition into a colder season.
Kendall stuns in this vibrant green Bottega Veneta dress whilst on holiday. A full-length, slim dress for evening wear is a classy and elegant choice. Kendall opts for gold hoops and a simple bracelet – with such a loud gown, in both colour and texture, opting for a simple hairdo, jewellery, and no shoes (if you are truly relaxing on holiday) is chic, elegant and stylish.
Chlöe keeps her style simple for this dynamic photoshoot – wearing a white bodycon dress and minimalist white heels creates a clean, simple monochromatic outfit. Chlöe keeps things casual, rather than over styling and risking various tones of white clothes, her matching dress and shoes is chic, with a strong silhouette for a powerful photograph.
Normani proves complex garments don’t have to be styled independently. She pairs an intricate beige corset with a loosely knitted skirt. Her outfit remains balanced, even with two eye-catching items, by following a similar colour scheme of browns and oranges. From tortoiseshell earrings to brown heels, the entire look remains cohesive due to a shared colour scheme.
Rosalia updates the preppy knitwear trend with bright patterns and casual styling. Her cropped sweater vest, loose white shorts and chunky white boots create a fun, youthful, and relaxed outfit – add splashes of bold colour, like red and pink, to an argyle knit with matching accessories for an updated preppy uniform look.
Kylie balances this masculine and feminine look for Elle Russia. The boxy, tailored elements of Kylie’s suit contrast the delicate lace bralette – bringing together oversized trousers with a bralette or cropped top creates a chic balance between contrasting styles of tailoring.
Camila Cabello looks stunning in this Azzi & Osta architectural two piece. We know matching sets have been trending recently and Camila is bringing an inspiring, new silhouette to the classic power suit. Loosening the blazer to wear it off-the-shoulder and experimenting with how who button it can offer a unique silhouette and customised design to a pants suit we already have in our wardrobe.
