So Your Local Charity Shop Has All of Next Season’s Biggest Trends

Latest news

    We don’t want to wish away summer or anything, but as fashion editors, it is our job to keep an eye on what’s coming up next. So we’re telling you now: Your local charity shop probably has all of next season’s biggest trends. “Vintage” is a keyword for A/W 19 thanks to silk grandma scarves, traditional tweed suiting, ’80s silhouettes and croc-stamped accessories. Lisa Aiken, Net-a-Porter’s fashion director, explained at her trends presentation: “While the Gucci impact is still very prominent, what we’ve seen come through this season is lots of tweeds, faux fur and scarf prints from Richard Quinn, which was a standout show of the season. There were a mash-up of references and designers have taken this idea of vintage and made it their own.” Keep scrolling to see and shop the vintage trends that will be big talking points come September.

    Colourful ’80s-inspired looks at Saint Laurent A/W 18.
    Grandma-approved florals at Junya Watanabe A/W 18.

    Vintage scarf prints are no longer limited to pocket squares and neck scarves, as the likes of Richard Quinn and Toga spliced these prints into all aspects of their designs. From shirts to jackets, these rich, elaborate silks always look expensive and add depth to any look.

    Designers have dusted off tweed for next season, giving it a modern update with colour and interesting silhouettes. Everyone from Miu Miu to The Row to Calvin Klein played with tweeds. Alessandra Rich’s jackets are already taking the “twee” out of tweed and making it a more fashion-forward fabric.

    In case you haven’t noticed, ’80s-inspired silhouettes are becoming more and more prominent every season thanks to designers such as Tom Ford and Saint Laurent. Come September, we will be inundated with puff-ball party dresses that look like vintage treasures.

    Florals that look like the wallpaper or sheets at your grandma’s house have been gaining popularity in 2018, and this is set to become even greater come September.
