Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons. 

As August starts today, it's time to preview the key fashion trends for the upcoming autumn / winter seasons. I must say that this year, despite the fact that I love summer and the midnight sun, I'm looking forward to fall with my baby girl as I can constantly see her grow and develop. This summer has felt like I've been on summer holiday, but I think only in fall I'll finally realize that I'm actually on maternity leave until next summer. From a versatile palette of clean, layered black and white, and romantic ruffles in volume, to luxe wintery mood with textures and feathers, this autumn / winter channels its own unique sense of style. When it comes to A/W fashion trends, these are the five Nordic & global trends I look forward to the most.

Elokuun alkaessa on hyvä pysähtyä esikatselemaan syksyn ja talven muotitrendejä. Vaikka rakastan kesää ja keskiyön aurinkoa, odotan jo syksyä ja viileneviä iltoja. Tänä syksynä saan myös seurata miten tyttövauvani kasvaa, miten jännittävää! Kesä on tuntunut pitkältä kesälomalta, ja luulen, että vasta syksyllä ymmärrän olevani äitiyslomalla ensi kesään asti. Syksy / talvi 2016 tuo muodin muodossa tullessaan muun muassa mustavalkoisia asukokonaisuuksia, ruutukuoseja, romanttisia röyhelöitä ja mielenkiintoisia tekstuureja. Tässä viisi trendiä, jota ainakin itse aion pitää silmällä tänä syksynä / talvena.

Animal prints / Eläinkuosit

This autumn / winter leopard spots, zebra lines and cheetah prints hit the streets! Make a roar with these prints, and cozy and ladylike cover-ups. My personal favorites are the zebra & leopard prints.

Tänä syksynä / talvena leopardit, seeprat ja gepardit kävelevät kaduilla, jos muotitrendejä on uskominen. Karju eläinkuosien kautta! Omat henkilökohtaiset suosikkini ovat seepra- ja leopardikuosit.

Tartan, tweed, plaids & grids / Tartaani, tweed, ruudut & ristikot

Already for years, it's been hip to be square in fall, and typical autumnal fabrics like plaid and natty tweeds find a whole new life in colder weather. This autumn / winter plaid comes in a clean, subtle, mute way, and the print can be found on everything from outerwear to cocktail dresses. Also, it’s not just for your Vans anymore that have checks: bold checkerboard prints might find their way into your closet this fall. My personal favorites are squared tops.

Ruudut ovat olleen syys- ja talvimuodissa jo vuosia. Myös tänä vuonna tartaani, tweed ja muut ruudulliset kuosit ovat kovaa huutoa. Jopa juhlamekot ovat tänä syksynä / talvena tehty ristikkokankaista. Ruutukuvio on pakko-ostos tänä syksynä! Omat suosikkini ovat ruudulliset topit ja paidat.

Statement furs / Statement -turkikset a.k.a. asennetakit

These statement-making coats are worth the splurge - they're all it takes to transform even your simplest looks into something special this autumn / winter. Furs, both real and faux ones, make a strong showing this fall. They come in various forms, also in bold colors and prints that really catches the eye. Plush textures add a sense of luxury to autumn / winter staples, and are key! My personal favorites are faux furs, you might remember the white / grey one I inherited from my grandmother that you saw in this earlier blog post.

Ns. asennetakit ovat toinen tulevan syksyn / talven pakko-ostos! Tekoturkiksia löytyy nyt lukuisissa väreissä ja niilläkin on hauskoja kuoseja! Upeat tekstuurit & muhkeat takit lisäävät ylellisyyden tuntua kylmän sään tullen. Itse suosin tekoturkiksia, ja aion käyttää isoäidiltäni perimää valkoharmaata takkia (näet sen tässä aikaisemmassa blogikirjoituksessa) tänä syksynä / talvena.

Ruffles & flounces / Röyhelöt

The offbeat, loosely sculptural flounces of the past couple of seasons are holding on also in autumn / winter, and can be found on everything - from full skirts to crop tops. Come colder days, ruffles fuse structured high-fashion with wearability. Minimalism kicks back by adding a subtle sense of femininity with ruffles and volume. There are oversized ruffles, fit-and-flare ruffle dresses and tiered ruffles. My personal favorites are the ruffle dresses.

Veistokselliset röyhelöt saavat jatkoa tänä syksynä / talvena. Löydät röyhelöitä muun muassa hameissa, mekoissa ja topeissa. Miten romanttista! Itse pidän eniten röyhelömekoista.

Shearling jackets & bombers / Lampaannahka- ja bombertakit

Classic aviator-style shearling jackets are back for autumn / winter 2016, yey! They go with everything - from pants to skirts and midi dresses. Shearling jackets are also made into bomber jackets, which is an interesting combination. My personal favorites are the army green, khaki & pink bomber jackets.

Klassinen aviator, eli lentäjä- ja pilottityyli, on täällä taas! Voit tänä syksynä yhdistää lampaannahka- ja bombertakin niin housuihin kuin hameisiin ja mekkoihin! Mielenkiintoisin yhdistelmä on bombertakki, joka on tehty lampaannahasta. Omat suosikkini ovat khakin- ja oliivinvihreät sekä vaaleanpunaiset (roosat) bombertakit.

  1. Wow, so many trends! I am eager to see the midnight sun, by the way, and I understand that as much as you like it, seeing your baby girl growing will make you like fall soon :) I love fake fur, bomber jackets and I loved a vertical striped skirt you showed here! I am a fan of fall, so the post is soooo for me! Hope you are fine!

  3. well, it sure was very interesting to see which trends are going to be "in" soon. blogs in my reading list are the only source where I see those trends from. but am I going to follow the trends? no, because I don't buy or wear stuff because of trends but only because I like something and I can get it with good price from a thrift store or a regular store or I already have it like for example a faux fur jacket I once thrifted :) and most of those trends like bombers, (faux) fur, plaids, animal patterns are always "in" in my opinion, throughout different seasons.
    ps. I'm actually not looking forward to autumn or winter at all because summer has been way too short here in Estonia!

    1. Thanks for the kind feedback Maiken! Actually, I don't think these things have been available before. Trends bring them to the stores, so that is why it's so interesting to see what's coming. These are not all of the trends that are reaching us this autumn / winter, but merely a selection that I've made of my favorite trends.
