With the summer in full flow it is the perfect time to start thinking about your autumn wardrobe. Yes, the autumn/winter 2014 fashion is coming in thick and fast from some of the most recognised and loved designer names. So what do we have to look forward to some September? We here at Cavells have put together a list of top 5 autumn/winter trends to look out for.

60s fashion has been slowly coming back into our lives season after season and autumn/winter 2014 is no different. Expect to see plenty of 60s inspired midi-dresses on and off the catwalks. Take a page from the books of Saint Laurent and Miu Miu, but wear your pieces without tights or without a jacket to make the dress more summer-appropriate.

Novelty Prints

Don't worry fun fashion lovers, just because autumn is coming doesn't mean you can forget about having fun with prints. This autumn/winter season is going to be filled with novelty prints, so you can get your fill! Even on the most casual pieces, bright, loud, novelty prints bring looks to life, proven by the likes of Issa or Markus Lupfer. Summer is the perfect starting point, so raise your proverbial voice with colours and graphics that aren't afraid to be seen.


We're not talking about bringing Adidas "poppers" back from the 90s, no; sportswear reefers to quilted mini-dresses and silk shorts, such as the latest pieces by Miu Miu and Fendi show us. In place of jackets or sweatshirts, opt for a tank top or t-shirt – or even make the look somewhat office appropriate by pairing shorts with a button-up blouse.


The gothic look is one which crops up very often in autumn/winter fashion, and 2014 is no exception. For those of a darker disposition, just channel the uncompromisingly glamorous Marlene Dietrich and her very real brand of romanticism, by indulging your love for buttery soft black leather, flashes of red, and inky languid silks, as seen at Lanvin, Prada and Givenchy.

Fairy-Tale Inspired

Fairy-tale inspired fashion is thriving in the fashion world. Designers such as Alexander McQueen offer airy fabrics and stunning embroidery, whilst Valentino showcases floor-length sheer styles which are embellished with flowers. Dolce & Gabbana have also turned storytellers with their dark, unctuous take on traditional fairy tales for AW14. Think huge fur hoods, jade green embellished capes and enchanting Little Red Riding Hood thick ruby coats.
