Autumn has set out to be a bold season this year as vivid colours are dominating the second half of this year. This season has run away from its designated neutral colour wheel and embraced more intense bright shades.
A style where we have seen this appear is through incorporating colour into the classic leather trends for autumn. This is a way to waken up our wardrobes during months that can appear more dull and drizzly and hit it with a vibrant revamp. An item of clothing that has combined both these styles is the colourful soft leather trench coat. This style of outerwear oozes sophistication as it holds the power to dress up any outfit and transform the look from plain to vivid. The past week at The New York fashion week, this trend has been seen repeatedly, worn by many celebrities who have been showing off this street style chic look as well as our Instagram feeds being flooded with it. Here are our favourite takes on this refreshing trend.
Kylie Jenner was seen attending fashion retailers Revolve New York fashion week event in true style as she made an unmissable fashion statement. The centre piece of Jenner’s outfit was a flamboyant orange trench coat which captivated the onlookers’ attention as the colour alone held so much brilliance. Paired with pointed heels that matched the trench coat perfectly, as well as some basic black jeans and a cropped t-shirt, the statement coat fulfilled its role of stealing the show.
