Oversized arm candy, fierce reds and dewy, rose-tinted cheeks make the autumn/winter 2017 fashion trends both practical and feminine. With the weather getting colder, it’s about time to embrace the new season’s hottest trends.

Red is the colour of autumn 2017. Worn in bold tones on the catwalk and featured in Givenchy’s AW17 collection, this strong and vibrant colour will be prominent in both statement autumn/ winter items such as fur coats and knitwear as well as in accessories such as oversized handbags and scarfs. As one of the most flattering colours for the majority of skin tones, invest in a bold red jumper, and match with another block colour, to master this new trend. We’ve paired our Sarah Hamilton super soft turtle neck jumper with a flattering pair of white stretch denim pull on jeggings and high heeled ankle boots, for a sophisticated and practical autumn look.

Bulky bags are going to wipe out the small and minimal clutch and tote bag look of summer 2017, as we begin to see oversized arm candy, gym bags and purses, designed to make you appear small and cute in comparison with their dramatic oversized style. With designers such as Stella McCartney, Sacai, Valentino, Celine and Balenciaga all showcasing huge handbags this season, life is about to get so much easier to carry. A massive relief for fashion forward mums, who have been struggling to fit life’s essentials into the summer 2017’s trendy, but super tiny, bags. Just imagine how much stuff you can fit into an oversized autumn/winter 2017 handbag! You’ll never be caught without an umbrella again and you can carry a handbag sized waterproof with you at all times. Get the oversized handbag look this autumn with our online collection of LOVE MOSCHINO handbags, available in three stunning colours.

Make-up is back to minimalism with a soft, fresh faced look giving a feminine and pretty theme to the catwalk. Heavy foundation and concealers are gone, and in their place comes dewy skin, rose tinted cheeks and soft eyebrows. To achieve this look, skincare is essential, so make sure to update your daily beauty routine and you could add a touch of fake tan to your daily moisturiser for a bronzed, yet natural, effect. Look out for highlighters and illuminators, such as our NARS Illuminator, to bounce light off your cheekbones and arches of your eyebrows and pair with a nude lip such as our MAC Cremesheen Lipstick. Sweep a soft rose blush on the apples of your cheeks for a romantic finish.
