What trends do you predict for autumn 13 womenswear?

Industry insider’s share their thoughts.

Style coucil

Preeta Cooley

I think the trend for embellished knitwear in original shapes, following on from the cocoon silhouette, will be very strong. As a wild guess I’d say the equestrian look (Tommy Hilfiger, pictured) could be a major trend for autumn 13. Based on the popularity of the Olympics equestrian teams it’s quite a commercial look too.

Autumn 13 will be a season of evolution not revolution, refreshing and modernising previous trends creating a hybrid that is modern, yet traditional. The 1980s (Jean Paul Gaultier, pictured) will gain importance as an inspiration. Sportswear continues to dictate shape and detailing, with stark contrasts between the influence of nature and the man-made.

Fashion operates in opposing cycles to give fresh ideas and new reasons to buy. So the big trends for spring 13 will be modern minimalism, the 1960s, monochrome, simplicity and sports chic. For autumn 13 I think we’ll see an opposing trend towards something more exuberant and maximalist (Chloé, pictured).

We expect the mood for sportswear to carry over into the new season. Unexpected fabrications will continue to make an impact, with all-over sequins set to update core items. The technical parka (Jack & Jones, pictured) will also become a key outerwear item. Moving into autumn we’ll see teals and clarets from last season providing the base palette, with flashes of hot brights from spring injected in dusky tones and cloudy pastels.
