4 Catwalk Trends in High Street Shops

Posted 22nd Aug 2019

The end of August and upcoming shift to Autumn/Winter 2019 has inspired us to investigate some new trends. We have sifted through the catwalks to find four key themes that have landed in your favourite high street shops at a fraction of the cost.

Bright Colours

Traditionally, the turn in season signified darker hues. Not this time! AW19 catwalks (Max Mara, Off-White, Fendi) have shown a penchant for bright pinks and yellows. Not only have these summer hues found themselves in favour, autumnal colours have had a 2019 reboot. A brighter shade of burnt orange has been featured by designers such as Balenciaga. Topshop and Hobbs have featured a number of pieces in this orange tone, whilst you can find ‘yolk yellow’ at stores such as Bonmarche, Dorothy Perkins and Deichmann.

Exaggerated Shoulders

This 80s trend is back with a vengeance. As seen on Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton and Givenchy catwalks, the bold shoulder has made a return. Go all out with a daring River Island number – or channel this trend discreetly by adding a flared shoulder top to your ensemble.

Leather Trousers

As expected, this classic AW style staple has made a return. Designers such as Tom Ford and Louis Vuitton chose loose fitting styles for their pieces, whilst others such as Hermes and Roberto Cavalli chose the classic slim, high waisted fit. You can find wide leg leather trousers at Topshop, whilst slim leg versions can be bagged at John Lewis, New Look and River Island.

Dark Florals

Dark florals could be seen on the catwalk for brands such as Prada, Dries Van Noten and Giorgio Armani paired with a dark lip and thick-soled boots. Find this trend in Jigsaw, Topshop and M&S.
