*AW Trends + Party Dresses with very.co.uk

Tuesday, October 15, 2019
Autumn is here and that means the festive season is fast approaching and with it comes mulled everything, Christmas present buying and festive parties! I love the trends for this time of the year as they usually involve cosy knitwear, teddy coats, boots of all kinds and pretty party dresses. There are so many trends for AW19 that I love so I wanted to share a few of my favourite general autumn winter trends as well as some of my picks for the perfect party dresses.

Check & Plaid
Check prints, plaid and tartan are always acceptable at this time of the year and 2019 is no different. I personally love check printed scarves for the autumn/winter months but clashing check prints were found on the runway at A.W.A.K.E, Marta Jakubowski and Ashley Williams too. You can find a range of gorgeous (and a few unique) check print clothing and accessories on very.co.uk such as a beautiful scarf pictured above!

Yellow & Mustard
Another trend that is synonymous with the autumnal months are shades of olive, rust, camel and of course, mustard. I've been on the look out for a yellow or mustard coat for years but I can never find one that fits all of my coat buying boxes - I'm quite particular when it comes to coats. Shades of yellow were to be found as sunny yellow dresses at Marc Jacobs and yellow sophisticated daywear could be found at Fendi and Balenciaga to add a little sunshine into those grey autumn/winter days.

Brown Outerwear
Lastly as well as deconstructed knitwear at Burberry, beige shades at Valentino and autumnal florals at Erdem, one of my favourite AW19 trends has to be natural toned outerwear. Simone Rocha, Jonathan Cohen and Rejina Pyo all showcased various shades of natural camel, beige and brown outerwear that is perfect for autumn. I personally have a few coats on my current wish list, including a cute brown teddy coat.
Knitted Dresses 
Now onto my party dress picks that are ideal for the colder months and paired with a waist cinching belt (as seen at JW Anderson and Tibi), highlighter coloured heels (as seen at Emilio Pucci and Saint Laurent) or an oversized bag (as seen at Michael Kors and Lacoste), you can add an element of the biggest trends for AW19 to your party dress.

I love knitted dresses and I definitely don't own enough, especially as it has started to turn very chilly in rainy Manchester! The dress I'm drawn to the most is definitely the first option, the V by Very button Neck Detail Knitted Dress which would be perfect with knee high boots and a faux leather jacket.
Little Black Dress (with a twist) 
You can never go wrong with a little black dress, especially if it has a unique twist, detail or shape! Sparkles are so timeless particularly when paired with the classic little black dress. Sparkly dresses were found at Halpern, Molly Goddard and 16Arlington. While I do love a bit of sparkle for the festive season and for New Years eve, I think the second polkadot dress has to be my favourite, along with the button detail midi dress.
Ankle Skimming Dresses 
Last but definitely not least is another great option for autumn, ankle skimming dresses, which never fail to look elegant and put together. Ankle skimming skirts and dresses were found at Carolina Herrera, Brandon Maxwell, Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen and Giambattista Valli. As I'm very petite, I do struggle to find the right length for midi or maxi dresses but I'm going to be on the look out for the perfect petite ankle skimming dress for this years festivities!

There are so many trends each year, with a few repeats such as florals, sparkles and check prints but I personally like to stick to my own style on the whole and add in elements of the latest trends. I love the trends of yellow and beige tones, ankle skimming party dresses and oversized bags this year so I'll be looking for pieces in the upcoming weeks to refresh my autumn/winter wardrobe.
