Fashion’s most exciting season is here. Transitioning from lightweight jackets to coats, minis to long pants, the changing of the season can be hard to navigate. Which is why we asked our General Manager and Head Buyer here at SocietyA, Lily Hamid, to share with us the key trends to look out for in this new season.
# 1 Romantic Silhouettes
The runways have confirmed the return of the Romantic Era.
Disaya, Sun Behind The Cloud Placement Wrapped Dress
Disaya, Zodiac Sequins Embellished Velvet with Tulle Sleeve Dress
Expect dresses that are layered, lace and ruffles prevalent and colourful fabrics are soft and encourage movement.
The puff sleeves that emerged in Spring/Summer is staying for the season with bigger proportions. Typical of the romantic era, sleeves are puffed up and exaggerated with more fabric, so much that it flops. Florals and embellishments are also something that you’ll see a lot of.

# 2 Checkered
One of the classics, this is a print often seen during Fall/Winter seasons. With its versatility to mix and match, and its ability to look flattering on many, it is no wonder that checks has become the staple in the wardrobe and especially one to keep for fall. Checkered prints can also be classified with gingham, houndstooth, tartan and plaids to create more textures in an outfit. It can also be patch-worked onto retro textures like denim. Silhouettes that will look good when checkered would be your jumpers, mini dresses, pleated skirts and oversized trousers. Most popularly prominent on pieces like jackets or blazers.
LIE, Contrasting Print Panel Trouser.
Bourie, 3-Button Tailored Jacket & Circular Ribbon Detail Blouse,& Bou Bou Pants.
# 3 Light & Bright
The change of Spring/Summer to Fall/Winter usually means a transition of bright summery colours to darker tones. But this year, lighter hues are introduced into fall as a trend. Lily’s picks for SocietyA also mean that you can wear these looks for fall and transcend into next spring without worry.
Xinnatex New York, Pale Yellow Striped Dress
Tibaeg, Elena Robe Dress
PH5, Helen Stripe Knit Blazer & Celia Logo Stripe Shorts
# 4 Browns and Chocolates
A lot of neutral hues in rich chocolate and contemporary tan can be seen this season and the colour makes for a wardrobe stable that’s easy to match. Take your neutral pieces up a notch by pairing them by going for a full monochrome look, or wear it with a garment in bright colour. Blue is also a natural complimentary partner while pink and warm red enhances the brown in the outfit.
