Cockburn Gateway AW18 Trend Forecast

HIGH SHINE (METALLIC):
From silver suiting head to toe, through to a subtler golden accessory, flashes of metallic flittered down the catwalks of the world ahead of the Autumn Winter 2018 season. You can start injecting metallic into your wardrobe on an affordable scale with a silver nail polish, or with a gold statement earring.
While no one will out shine you in a stunning gold number after dark, don’t think that you can’t get away with metallic during the day. Pairing silver with denim and white makes the perfect fashionable day combination, so next time you throw on your jeans and fave white tee, add a silver bomber or a metallic sneaker to complete the look.

That’s right folks, this trend is here to stay. But don’t start having horrible flashbacks to Justin and Britney double-deniming together, because we’re giving this classic trend a modern makeover. Think denim sweatpants, embellished denim jeans and even denim that’s fraying at the seams. The key to owning this look is to not being afraid of clashing different types of denim. You can rock a pair of acid wash skinny legs with a dark denim jacket, a pair of coveted denim overalls or even a frayed mini skirt. Double denim is all about having fun because there are no rules to making this look yours this season!

WORK IT (WORK INSPIRED):
Hello 90’s, the power-suit is back! Well, sort of. We’re taking the power suit and toning it down a notch with relaxed prints and mix matched ensembles. For example take the staple check suit, swap out the bottoms for a pair of jeans, throw on a coloured tee and you have a stylish new take on office wear. You can try this office wear trend with pinstripe, hounds tooth and checked prints, why not clash the prints together? Wear a pair of hounds tooth pants, with a simple camisole and a checked blazer to work, swap your shoes for a pair of heels and you’ve got a look that will take you literally from the office to dinner with the girls!

SPACEMAN (SPACE PRINTS):
Houston, we do not have a problem with this trend. With space travel on the horizon, the future has never been more exciting, and it’s bringing space themed fashion with it! Mums you can step up your fashion game with cheeky star and moon print tees, space themed jewellery and even futuristic, metallic makeup. The kids can really embrace this one, with alien, planet and rocket prints from head to toe. Even dad can get on board the space theme, pairing a cool astronaut tee with his favourite jeans. The whole family can take off into the future of fashion!

The classic print gets a makeover with flannel and check taking over the runway this season. But before you whip out the old faithful flannel shirt, you might want to know it’s all about changing up the colours. We’re seeing blue, yellow and white checked print, in addition to the classic red and black flannel, making it edgier than ever. The fellas can layer a yellow flannel shirt over a white tee, with black jeans and sneakers for a fresh look. As for the ladies, keep an eye out for flannel dresses and skirts to edge up your everyday look, and remember that flannel print is one of the best prints to layer with. Try it under a denim jacket, or over a leather dress with boots, perfect for winter!
