So it’s started. Slowly but inevitably summer is coming to an end. Now it’s not easy to read about fashion without reading the best trend predictions, what should we buy and put in the bottom of our wardrobe. And Copenhagen fashion week started already! It’s almost the middle of August after all, and while we can still predict/hope for warm sunny days in the rest of the month and in September too, we know, we have to prepare ourselves.
Around a week ago I didn’t want to let summer go, but now this feeling is changing already. It’s strange and exciting at the same time what a week and some cooler days can do. Now I’m more like in some kind of transitional period. I’m still attached to my lightest denims and slides, but I wanna wear light coats and all the earthy colors of autumn.
Rusty reds, burnt oranges, maroons, camels, tans, cognacs, khakis and strangely enough, browns too. It hasn’t started yesterday though. I mean overall. It started a few seasons ago with all the retro fever marching over the world. And compared to my seemingly everlasting love for everything black and white, last year I bought a lot of khaki stuff, my very first camel coat, some turtlenecks and a pair of rusty red loafers, plus I want nice tan colored ankle boots for a long while with no luck thus far. Maybe this year fashion brands’ supply will be bigger…(pretty please?)
It also has something to do with the Vetements effort make everything fugly trendy again, plus the latest Jean Paul Gaultier couture collection when I couldn’t stop being in awe. Plus because these are the colors which don’t freak nor wash me completely out. Plus it’s because – of course – of all the street stars, who are rocking the trend for a while. Is it not convincing enough yet? Then here you have my favorite lusting/inspiration pictures. I told you. 🙂
And this is just the warmer part of the earthy spectrum, I’m drooling over everything khaki too…but I guess that’s no news. 🙂
And the best thing is that these coats are the best with blue jeans and black leather pants or skinnies, with simple tees in summer, and some knitwear in fall and winter, which – I’m sure – everybody has plenty at this point. But where are my tan/cognac/brown ankle boots?
