This season our Autumn/Winter trends blog is looking a little different this year. As we mentioned in previous seasons, designers are starting to turn away from ‘fad’ fast fashion trends that come and go before we know it and are focusing on timeless pieces that will build a wardrobe we can cherish for a lifetime.
As sewist’s this is something we can definitely get behind. Many of us sew because we can’t find exactly what we want in ready to wear, and we treasure the pieces we make. We create garments that reflect who we are.
If you want to know what garments appeared on the runways over and over again, you can take a look back at our Autumn Trends blog for 2022. The same garments were showing up this year and are testament to this new way of thinking in the fashion industry.
However, while the styles remained the same, we saw new colour combinations popping up and this was something we got very excited by! We love colour at Lamazi, and can’t resist there new colour palettes. You might find a lot of these colours already in your wardrobe, and we hope this will inspire you to combine these items in new ways.
Teal and Yellow
The softest shades of yellow might seem like more of a spring/summer colour, but paired with teal this automatically becomes a more autumnal combination. Think drapey skirts and dresses in shades of teal paired with soft yellow cardigans and jumpers, bringing sunshine on the greyest of autumn days.
Olive and Rust
These colours on their own are both classic when it comes to autumn dressing but are rarely paired together. The rich shades of rust were paired with a more neutral olive shade on the catwalks, to provide a sophisticated Autumnal look.
Blush and Burgundy
Red and Pink has been a big trend in recent years and one we have been excited to embrace. This season this combination is taking a more grown up, elegant approach, with soft shades of blush pink being paired with deep, rich burgundy.
Emerald Green and Brown
Vibrant Emerald Green has seen a big rise in popularity this year, with this joyful colour appearing over and over again in both fabrics and the ready to wear fashion industry. To carry this colour into the autumn and winter months, we recommend pairing it with rich browns.
