Back to the future for next season’s fashion

Posted on

So often designers return to days gone by and reinvent fashion trends for the season to come. Well, autumn will be one of those seasons.

This autumn, we’re going back to the ’90s when we watched Friends and Clueless, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake were the it-couple, JTT was every girl’s celebrity crush and we were listening to Ace of Base and En Vogue.

Now, don’t worry if you didn’t hang onto anything from decades past because, like all reimagined fashion, the 90s has been updated.

It’s also only coming back in small doses and more understated ways so you can get on board without needing too many pieces and can pair them with items you already own.

I’m a big advocate for building a capsule wardrobe. It’s one filled with staple items like a well-fitting pair of black pants, a pair of jeans, black blazer and white shirt. These are the pieces you keep for years and years that can be mixed and matched with other pieces in your wardrobe.

Now back to the upcoming trends.

Oversized blazers

These have been around for the last few seasons but are back with maybe a bit more shoulder pad or more of a defined shoulder.

They’re ideal for adding thicker knits and jumpers underneath when the temperature drops.

Tube tops and tank tops

A tube top is otherwise known as the boob tube and a tank top is one with sleeves—usually thinner ones.

Both can be worn with jeans or pants and can be dressed up with a blazer or down with a denim jacket which will come in handy when it gets cooler.

This is a favourite trend of mine because I love a bit of detail. We’ll be seeing statement shoulders, big sleeves and even one shoulder tops coming up.

It’ll be a bit of a mixed bag for autumn when it comes to colour. There’ll be neutrals including beige, blush and cream but also bold jewel tones like dark pink, burgundy, emerald green and red.


  • Before autumn rolls around you might even start to see a few early trends hit the shelves including fringing—yes, the Western tassels vibe—although definitely not the stuff from ye olde saloon. It’ll feature on the bottoms of dresses and the edges of jackets.
  • We’re also likely to see some cobalt blue—quite a universal colour because it’s bright and bold and stands out against all skin tones and colours.
  • There’ll also be more animal print and the different takes on said print with some blue and pink integrated into patterns.
