Autumn Fashion Trends: The Styles to note now for the seasons ahead – Guest Post

Hi guys 

I was hella excited to find another Irish blogger with my name so jumped and the chance to be a guest on Yasmin’s blog! 

I’m Yasmin Hamouda and I’m a fashion and lifestyle blogger here in Dublin. I’m half Irish and half Egyptian hence where I get the name! I absolutely love life in Dublin and document what the city has to offer through my streetstyle approach to fashion as well as my own personal experiences. 

As we’re well on our way into autumn winter, I thought I’d share with you some of my favourite upcoming trends you’ll be needing in your wardrobe this season – hope you enjoy.

Call me nuts, but I’m really looking forward to Winter fashion! I hate pretty much everything else about Winter, but the fashion makes it just that bit more bearable.  I’m already eyeing up what’s going to everywhere next season, so I thought I’d share with you some of my favourite trends for this A|W.


If there’s one colour that’s going to have a moment next season it’s red, and red head to toe at that. From Deep wines at MaxMara to Scarlett Reds at Alexander McQueen it was everywhere during Fashion Month. I think if it’s done right this looks so elegant – it’s bold but so classy.




We saw and loved it last season and thankfully velvet will still be very much a hot topic this year. This is a trend I absolutely love – it’s so elegant and has a real luxurious vibe about it.


Granny Style
You can let your Nanas know you’ll be following them for fashion inspiration this season! I mean if Gucci are adding pearls to their chunky oversized cardigans who are we to argue? Anything that’s going to keep me warm is a winner in my eyes – I get to that point in Winter when being warm starts to take priority over anything else!

For great quality knits on the high street you can’t beat H&M and Zara.


Corduroy makes a Comeback

My only memories of corduroy are as a child and of course as I got older and started choosing what i wore I thought it was horrific! Well next season I may just change my mind as corduroy is making a major comeback.

The Prada and Mulberry A|W 17 shows showcased what’s to come. This is a cord revival but with a feminine twist. Instead of mustard yellows and greens, think blush tones, terracotta and teals in feminine silhouettes.




Francesco Scognamiglio

It may be August, but hopefully you’ve found a little inspiration there for the seasons ahead 🙂

That’s all for now,

Chat soon,
