These are the 8 fall fashion trends to put on your shopping wish list!29 August 2017
and we tell you how to shop them for very little money
The end of the summer always gives me a little bit of mixed feelings. It’s so nice when the weather’s still sunny, but deep down I honestly long for a different season. I always look forward to something new. Or better said: to new items in my wardrobe and new ‘success-oufits’ that will make sure you get spontaneous compliments for (YAY!) looking so nice. A thing that’s also always helpful around the time the stores are full with the newest fashion collections is a touch up for your hair at the hairdresser. Another thing I always do (better yet, I’m in the middle of it while writing this blog) is arrange a large detox for my wardrobe. Not only to make some room for all the new finds, but also to create a budget for a MEGA shopping spree.
i turn a € 500,- shopping budget into € 1.000,- to € 1.500,-
My secret? Every season I sell almost a third of my wardrobe through platforms like Amsterdam Yardsale, Marktplaats or at the IJ-hallen. I always collect around € 500,- this way. Doesn’t sound too bad, does it? But here comes my largest secret. I turn this € 500,- into € 1.000,- to € 1.500,- in just one day of shopping. Okay, so now I have your attention, don’t I? Because every season I take the Shopping Shuttle from Amsterdam Central Station to Batavia Stad Fashion Outlet. There you score clothes and other items by top brands with discounts between 30% and 70% the whole year through. This past year lots of stores have been added, like: America Today, G-Star Raw, Shabbies, Summum Woman, Samsonite, Tommy Hilfiger, Circle of Trust and Adidas Originals. The outlet is now bigger than ever! Before I go shopping I turn to the ‘September issues’ of Vogue, Elle and Glamour for some inspiration and I make a list with the fashion trends of the new season of which I definitely want to score something of. What’s on my fashion wish list of this year? I’ll tell you by some of the trends I’ve spotted while I was in New York this past week!
8 fall trends to put on your shopping wish list
LEOPARD: I always say: if you can get away with it, wear it. And yes, I personally am a huge fan of leopard print. During my last shopping spree I scored the leopard jacket pictured above at Scotch & Soda. Such a good catch!
TARTAN DIAMONDS: It’s hard to ignore it this winter. Everywhere you see items with a diamond fabric. In palazza pants, thick woolen jackets and diamond patterned shoes. Shopping tips: make sure to visit Tommy Hilfiger, where at the moment they have a very cute blue diamond patterned jacket in store, but also go to Scotch & Soda, Ralph Lauren and Summum Woman.
YELLOW: From leather bags to leather shoes and statement jackets. Yellow seems to become the colour of the fall of 2017. Feel like going shopping? Check out America Today for a yellow Rains raincoat or Fred de la Bretonière for beautiful yellow leather shoes or a bag.
DENIM: It’s time to say goodbye to your skinny jeans for good this winter. Instead, go for a more relaxed fit, flared jeans or even ‘deconstructed denim’ with different kinds of jeans processed into one pants. For these items you’ll definitely succeed at G-Star Raw, Denham and Levi’s among others.
METALLIC: From silver to bronze and colour to gold. Metallic items are everywhere this winter. As in skirts, pants, shoes and bags. If you’re looking for a striking golden pants like pictured above you pay a visit to Scotch & Soda, Michael Kors and Calvin Klein!
SPORTY: Here at the office we kinda like this trend. Neat pants, but with a sporty edge like a bright coloured line on the side. This you can score at Batavia Stad Fashion Outlet at Circle of Trust and Adidas Originals, for example.
FLORAL: Another trend of which I hope sticks around for a while is the floral print. From dreamy dresses to blazers and even complete trouser suits. Chances are you’ll succeed for these items at stores like Scotch & Soda and Summum Woman whenever you’re in Batavia Stad Fashion Outlet.
