Autumn Fashion 2018
As we enter a new season and the leaves change colour, we too need to change – our wardrobe. Fill your autumn wardrobe with the newest and trendiest attire, which will peg you as the fashionable friend. Make a date with Rosebank Mall to spend that change (cha-ching) for a change… in style!
Before we dive in, just a heads up; with the cooler air already having arrived in our beautiful city and the latest fashion having already hit out shelves, be ware of fur trim clothes and accessories (clothing and décor). Make sure that what you buy is faux fur and not from factory farming. This can be done by checking the label of garments and staying away from “Made in China” products as China does not have animal welfare laws or anti-cruelty laws.
You can also inform Fur-free SA who educates consumers and retailers, and investigates mislabeling in South African retail stores.
Bold Floral Prints
This Autumn the flowers have wilted outdoors and re-blossomed in the ‘New arrivals’ section of retailers. Floral prints with flared sleeves are big this season and we love it. Get yours from Rosebank’s fashion retailers Edgars and H&M.
A Japanese-inspired Palm Printed Kimino Top wraps around the waist for a smart fit and has flared three quarter sleeves, available at Edgars. Or a short top in a soft rib knit with long trumpet sleeves and embroidered cuffs, available from the newly-opened H&M for only R329.
Classic and consistent tones are all the rage with all black and all beige outfits, tip to toe. This consistency is considered a crime with bright colours but classic tones make this type of dress an artform, almost always labeling the dresser as chic and sophisticated. Top Shop, available inside Edgars at Rosebank Mall, offer an unequivocal mix of styles which suit every type of wardrobe and cater to every individual looking for quality, fashion-forward pieces which are easy to mix and match.
School Girl Skirts
School girl skirts are in and can be worn a range of ways; with a polar neck, jersey, tights and boots or with a blouse and pumps or heels. H&M’s Conscious Collection, available at Rosebank, brings you a skirt in a recycled polyester jacquard weave containing glittery threads with a concealed zip at the back and patch-front, lined pockets.
Also, check out the ever-popular black short imitation leather skirt with a visible zip at the back, as well as a hoard of many more styles, patterns and lengths – just perfect for you.
Now is also the time to play and become more daring with the finishing touches to your outfits, you nails. Black, burgundy, teal and grays automatically become more popular round about this season and can be found at Clicks and Dis-Chem.
Alternatively, get your nails professionally done at one of Rosebank’s Beauty Tenants, Sorbet and Dream Nails.
This Autumn, remember to dress for YOUR body type. It doesn’t have to all be jeans and over-sized jerseys; take risks, wear form-fitting clothing to insulate the warmth during this sometimes very chilly season and don’t be afraid to be bold!
