Autumn Winter Fashion Trends for Real Mums 2018

Now that Summer seems to be well and truly behind us, it’s time to turn our attention to our Autumn/Winter wardrobes.  For many, this will ring out a resounding ‘YES’ but for others, it can be a time of dread . . . “what am I going to wear?”.  Hopefully, this will give you some helpful hints and ideas.

Embrace the Checks

Michael Kors Coats

Firmly on trend for Autumn Winter 2018 are the plaid and check patterns.  What could make you stand out and look any more stylish than the fabulous checked Michael Kors Coats? A statement piece like this will instantly brighten up your wardrobe and can be coupled with countless items from jeans to trousers, skirts and jeggings.

Monochromatic Style

Monochromatic Style

When you step out of the shower in the morning and open those wardrobe doors, opting for a monochromatic outfit takes the stress and time out of your decision making.  Dress head to toe in one colour (black/navy/grey), be it top and trousers, skirt or dress and then accessorise with a bright coloured scarf, hat, shoes, bag or a wrap like this one from Principles.  You’ll easily wow others with your effortless style.

Clash the Colours

Colour clash

Sometimes colours were meant to clash.  Don’t be afraid to mix the reds with pinks and the blues with the greens or orange.  The important thing to remember about dressing brightly is that the confidence is the finishing touch on the outfit.  Don’t let the weather drag you down, be the person who stands out on a grey day for all the right reasons.

A-Head of the Game

Head gear

This is my go-to on a bad hair day!  I have a selection of hats, beanies and berets mostly from Joules that I can grab as I head out of the door.  With a slick of lipstick or a smear of vaseline, you’re good to go.  A sunny day is even better because you can pop the sunnies on for the extra glam factor!  Looking good never came so easy.

Best Foot Forward

Ladies Boots

I love Autumn/Winter because it means that I can break out the boots once more.  A nice pair of ankle boots works perfectly with jeans, trousers, skirts and dresses adding instant style.  They also help to keep you upright on the school run instead of slipping and sliding around!

Try to add just one or two items which will compliment your wardrobe and give it a little boost.  Only choose clothes which you will be comfortable in and that you can wear with confidence otherwise they will forever linger in the back of the wardrobe for years to come – I know, I have been there!

      I even carry a hat in my bag in case my hair looks naff halfway through the day 😀

    it is all about the monochrome for me, most of the year not just in winter. However I do love the look of that red hat, it’s the same as the one I already have but in…. yes you guessed it black! Think i need to start adding a splash of colour more often.

      Black is such an easy colour to wear though isn’t it and it does look good when you sprinkle a bit of colour on 😉

    Autumn is my favourite season for fashion, I just love the colours and getting cosy. I also love a good hat for Autumn too and think it really finishes off an outfit.

      I always love Autumn colours, they tend to suit my skin tone better as they are a little warmer aren’t they? 🙂

    Boots and bobble hats are basically my Winter uniform. I do love a bit of monochrome too.

      I realised this morning that my favourite pair of boots need rehealing, I must get that done asap otherwise I will be lost without them 🙂

    I love the trends at the moment. Monochrome is a firm favorite of mine. I’ve not been brave enough to try colour clashes yet haha

      I must admit colour clashing scares me a little although I have bought a new sweatshirt which is red and orange which looks great on x

    Oh those boots are gorgeous! I could shop for shoes all day everyday, especially boots! I love autumn and winter fashion x

      Give me boots every day of the week I just love them, I feel under-dressed when I wear shoes 😀 x

    I’m all for the checks. I think half my wardrobe is checked shirts. And don’t even ask me how many wooly hats I own!

      Perfect you’re totally on trend for Autumn so there’s no need for you to spend a penny 😉
