Fashion week shows are fabulous fun to watch, but quite regularly it’s with the acceptance that you could never, ever, wear the look in day-to-day life. That said, there are the trends that make the transition to weekend or office with ease. We’ve looked through the AW14 offering and seen which ones we’re looking forward to trying out ourselves…
We can totally imagine ourselves cosying up in one of these oversized coats.
Practical and an AW14 trend? We’re sold on this rollneck-under-top look.
Michael Kor’s oversized knitwear would make the perfect outfit for a cold spring day.
We’ll definitely be mixing up our outfits with a variety of fabrics a la Marc Jacobs, from print to patent.
When Kate Middleton’s favourite designer turns her attention from gowns to ready to wear, the results are equally fabulous. We’re loving the maxi skirt and contrasting top silhoutte.
Belted coats have been a big trend at the AW14 fashion weeks, as seen here at Marc Jacobs. Great for creating a feminine silhoutte and very wearable, we’re sold.
Tommy Hilfiger’s serious layering and wintery coats are a trend we’ll be working, for sure.
An outfit in all one colour? We can most certainly do that. It’s injects serious elegance, as well as cutting down the time we need to get ready. Go for black if you’re not feeling too bold.
We love the balancing out of the looks at 3.1 Phillip Lim, with bold print tops and block colour trousers.
The wearable separates at 3.1 Phillip Lim would be perfect for mix-and-matching in the week.
Open is the only way to wear shirts this season, as seen at Donna Karan, and we’re ok with that.
We loved Alexander Wang’s fun take on outerwear, with these colour pop rainmacs and injections of neon throughout the collection.
There were more belted coats and block colouring at Donna Karan, perfect for a easy-to-achieve elegant look.
We’re loving clean shapes and simplistic monochrome looks at the moment, as seen at Helmut Lang.
As usual, Victoria Beckham worked in a very wearable minimalist palette, with a lot of monochrome looks – which we love.
Who doesn’t love a logo sweater? We certainly do, these bold letter ones at DKNY and the word ones at Sister By Sibling.
We’re looking forward to having fun with contrast-colour prints, especially on tailored looks, like these at Helmut Lang.
We like these one-colour looks. Reminiscent of Maz Mara’s stand-out red look last season would’t you say?
Peter Pilotto’s graphic prints translate fabulously to cocktail dresses, but we love the bold colours on these totally wearable separates too. And is that a high neck? Of course it is.
The slick black dresses and jackets at Tom Ford are totally wearable.
We were enjoying wearing our crop tops and midi skirts together, and now we’re thinking to match them too.
We’re definitely loading up on chunky belts to cinch in our winter coats, as seen on the Burberry Prorsum models.
These mixed texture, one pastel colour looks at the Topshop Unique show were some of our favourites.
Topshop Unique is notoriously wearable, but some of their mixed texture, one colour looks, particularly.
We enjoyed Topshop Unique’s experimental layering. Think long-sleeved tops and evening dresses, with matching jackets – and, of course, a skinny belt.
Crop tops are a flattering favourite of ours, and we particularly liked them at House Of Holland worn with similarly coloured high-waisted trousers and skirts.
We are big fans of the coat mix-up, like these bold prints and colours on classic styles at Burberry Prorsum.
This new take on layering, with leather jackets under winter coats, was a big one for AW14 – as seen on show-goers too.
House Of Holland had some truly fabulous stand-out electic looks, like this mixture of logo t-shirts, bomber jackets and PVC pencil skirts.
More minimalist palettes at the Daks show… We’re big fans of this wearable trend.
