AW 14 – Trend Report – Part 1

Whilst Spring is only just beginning, here at bod & ted we are always one step ahead. Having already completed most of our buying for next season we are looking forward to Autumn Winter 14 and the new trends it’s bringing with it! Not only with this blogpost give you an insight into some of the biggest trends for A/W, it will also give you an exclusive sneak peek into some of the pieces that will be arriving at bod & ted.

Statement Sweaters

The first trend that will be huge this A/W is Statement Sweaters. This can take the form of bold colours and patterns, wacky embroidery or glitzy embellishment. Having a more interesting feature to your jumper will give a dressier spin to your day-today to basics and is an essential buy for this winter. We love a statement sweater here at bod & ted and two of our favourite brands 360 Sweater and Zoe Karssen definitely deliver in this department.

 Leather

As always leather is a big trend for next season. Autumn Winter collections are full of leather, both real and faux. Be it leather leggings, biker jackets or leather detailing, we don’t see this trend going anywhere anytime soon! For a subtle take on the trend, look for pieces with a leather trim or leather panelling such as this Vilagallo jacket, arriving at bod & ted for A/W 14.

 Pink

Our love affair with all things pink definitely isn’t over just yet; the colour featured in almost all the collections for A/W 14. Pink suits most skin tones and looks great paired with black or denim, making it the perfect hue to add a pop of colour to your winter wardrobe. To touch on the trend try a Becksondergaard scarf or American Vintage tee, or go all out with this to-die-for pink coat from  Custommade, arriving instore in September!

Textural Knits

If you’re not one for a statement sweater then the only other way to wear your knitwear this Autumn/Winter is to buy into the fluffiest, fuzziest knitwear you can find. There are plenty of ways to tick the trend box here and we love how French brand Marie & Sixtine have added a new dimension to the trend with a bright tomato red colour pop.

Sparkle

This A/W don’t keep sparkle just for best. A longtime favourite of partywear, this season sparkle has been introduced as a way to add a little bit of difference to day-wear, bringing a glamorous addition to easy and wearable pieces. We love how Marie & Sixtine have put a spin on the trend with this classic back cardigan with an embellished panel running down the back, perfect for the festive season!
