Make Autumn Unforgettable

August 2017

Make your new season unforgettable with the latest in on-trend fashion and style and work the hottest trends now! From all the shades of blue to comfortable knitwear, glamorous, glossy pieces and the smartest tailoring, we’ve got the lowdown on the looks you’ll be wearing this season.

Right now, feeling blue is a good thing! This season, the catwalks were flush with every shade of blue. From inky navy and indigo to crisp and clear sky blue, add some great transitional style to your look with pops of bold blue. Update your wardrobe with luxe-feeling blue suede biker jackets from River Island, the palest blue shirt dresses from Primark or electric blue tops at Bonmarché.

High shine textures are here to stay and this season, glossier fabrics are on-trend. Get ready to work mirror-finish cool with our top picks of this punchy trend. Pick up cool vinyl mini-skirts, patent touches on shoes and even foil jackets. We’re loving H&M’s metallic raincoats and gold peep-toe shoes from Miss Diva. Work some colour into your look with shiny metallics in every shade, sleek foils and glossy vinyl.

Sharp cuts, relaxed tailoring and clean lines are next up on our trend list. Tailoring is back in fashion this season with lots of smart styles, printed fabrics and structured pieces to choose from. Make an impact with cool colours at H&M, blooming flowers at Peacocks or edgy checks at River Island. Work a full-on tailored look in a suit or keep things cool and casual with jeans and a blazer.

Comfort is key with this look. Granny knitwear, oversized jumpers and loose cardigans made a statement on the runway and we love how easy it is to wear this trend. Lots of chic with even more comfort! Head to Primark for perfect granny inspired knitwear and choose a size bigger to get that perfect fit. Layer relaxed cardigans over your everyday outfits for a quick and easy style update.

With the new season fast approaching, it’s time to say hello autumn with the latest in trends for stylish men. Read on to discover your casual must-haves from easy outerwear to the newest denim cuts and edgy trainers for every day. It’s time to make your wardrobe unforgettable with The Forge.

Outerwear stays casual for autumn with the ever cool bomber jacket reigning supreme for men. Easy to wear and even easier to style, go for new season shades in dusty colours like warm tans and soft pinks. Layer this autumn essential over casual tee and denim looks for a fresh feeling transitional outfit.

This season, men’s denim gets an update with new cuts and styles to add to your wardrobe. The skinny jean is still going strong but autumn sees the lower cut and tapered leg jean begin to take over! Mix things up with a coloured pair from River Island in teal. Work this style into all your everyday casuals for a cool take on denim for autumn.

Trainers will always be cool for off-duty looks but with autumn approaching it’s time for a revamp of your footwear. Keep things up to date with sporty looks and styles from Nike at JD Sports with cool mesh details or opt for wallet friendly versions at Dunnes Stores. Style your sporty trainers with casual denim, classic t-shirts and a must-have bomber jacket this season.
