Autumn/Winter 2013 fashion

It feels like summer has only just begun but already the autumn/winter collections have sprung their way onto the catwalks and into the August issues of the fashion magazines. I ask myself whether its too early to embrace autumn weather gear when the sun has only just started to shine in Great Britain, but I suppose it's better to be safe (and early) than sorry when it comes to fashion. 

This season I really like quite a lot of the trends. However, because there is so much fabric to choose from, I have decided to pick three highlights from the autumn/winter 2013 catwalk shows. 

First up, (drumroll please) is my favourite style this season: the tailor made suit style. 
Some may find this style too businessy (is that a real word?) and corporate, but I say, "release the bow ties in all their Doctor Who glory!" (You now know my secret obsession!)
This look features shirts buttoned up to the neck and long line blazers with classic pinstripes which can also be intertwined with the checked style, also from this season's catwalk, by countrifying it up with a tweed blazer. 

This picture of a piece from Moschino's A/W 13 collection combines the tailored trend (alongside a bow tie!) with the more anarchistic punky tartan style also featured on this season's catwalk. 

As mentioned above, the punk season has been released back into the wild world of fashion, giving new punk bands a chance to become more popular and discoverable in society. The catwalk was taken over by chained boots from Chanel, graphic tees at Versace and lots of shiny black leather. 
A particular favourite piece of mine from the catwalk this season in the punk style was by Aquilano Rimondi, who created an Alice in Wonderland style dress, featuring embellished suits (I.e. hearts, clubs, spades and diamonds) from a pack of cards on the shoulders. 

And finally, the last pieces I would like to share with you are the boots from Kurt Geiger, which not only look amazing, but are wearable and practicle for the Autumn/Winter season too!
