For those who are still on holiday but can’t help but think about the new arrivals in the shops, for those who can’t wait to discover next season’s trends, the first indications are surfacing and they are sure not to disappoint.
Slowly but surely the summer is coming to a close, and even though the thought of returning to our routine does not make us jump for joy, the thought of the post-holiday shopping ritual can surely lift our spirits, getting us psyched up for a new beginning.
The colors, shapes and textures change, however the desire to be adventurous and go beyond the already-seen never ever does. And once again, this year the autumn collections astonish us with remarkable items: a rebellious and nonconformist spirit animates elegance and etiquette.
Skirts with glossy finishes combined with leather boots are mixed with military style jackets, tartan coats and striped knits. And even though the fabrics become heavier, the colors remain bright and bold, with energetic shades such as yellow, fuchsia, army-green and red.
And if it’s true that accessories add the finishes touches to one’s look, then you can’t go without the petit purse, military cap or patterned socks, but above all, the fun and extremely popular colored pom-poms – also in the winter – are a must: extremely cool, they add a touch of glam to any outfit.
So serial vacationers, cheer up! There is always a bright side to consider, and in this case I predict that shopping is going to be your glass half full!
