Trends for autumn and winter 2023

There’s a lot to be excited about when it comes to 2023 autumn and winter fashion trends— in particular, embracing jackets and coats (hey, most of us already own one), metallics that add a bit of sparkle to a dreary winter’s day, and dramatic scarf dressing (who doesn’t enjoy wrapping a mini-blanket over outfits in winter?). But regardless of what the catwalks tell us, there are perennial staples that work no matter the trends—like colourful knit jumpers and gorgeous dresses you can bust out from beneath your winter jackets.
So let’s have a look at what outfits Femme Connection has curated for autumn and winter that will have you feeling cosy and looking très chic during the cold!
Let’s start with hoods. Not only are they a welcome feature on coats as temperatures drop, but this year, hoods are officially on-trend! According to recent Paris fashion shows, a swing towards ultra-functional clothing is in, so coats, jackets, and even dresses will be incorporating hoods. And if they don’t, just wear your hoodie under your coat!

Ameley Reversible Puffer Coat

With that in mind, we offer you our Ameley Floral Animal Print Hooded Puffer Coat, which delivers ample practicality with its comfortable hood, side pockets, and front zip. Add to that, it’s reversible! You can step out wearing floral in the morning and switch over to animal print at night! It’s also quilted and knee length, so you can keep a whole lot of your body warm this winter. Wear it with a turtleneck sweater and slim-fit vegan leather pants, like these Caris Wet Look Pants. (These warm pleather pants are ultra-functional, with five pockets and stretch fabric for ultimate comfort).

Bridget Wide Collar Trench Coat

If you already have a favourite hoodie on hand, try the hoodie under coat look. A beige or black hoodie would look amazing under this toffee-coloured Bridget Wide Collar Trench Coat, with its wide lapel collar and functional side pockets. And if you want to ditch the hoodie, this stylish wrap coat would look fabulous with a shirt, t-shirt or turtleneck top.

Lidia Plaid Check Shacket

Continuing with the comfortable, functional vibe, there’s the option of going low key and wearing this relaxed fit Lidia Plaid Check Shacket with functional side slant pockets and collared neckline over a t-shirt or turtleneck and jeans.

Tivoli Graphic Foil Print Top

This Italian-made Tivoli Graphic Foil Print Top with front patch pocket also slots well into the comfortable category and comes in a range of colours including mocha, dusty pink and white. Wear as is, or if you want to up the style factor, add the Cartia Vegan Leather Trench Coat in black over the top. Wear with funky sneakers and you’re set.

Bonita Embellished Blazer

Also set to be à la mode this autumn and winter (according to UK Vogue’s The Key Autumn/Winter 2023 Trends To Know Now) is power dressing! Think 80s shoulder pads, sharp suits and crisp shirts. With that in mind, let us introduce you to our Bonita Double Breasted Embellished Blazer. Made in Italy, this blazer has a peak lapel collar and front flap pockets with embellishment detail that adds a hint of glitzy punk. Wear it with a shirt, pencil skirt, and statement boots. Add a necktie and you’ll be the belle of the boardroom!

Peta Animal Print Pleated Blouse

Now, looking to eternal winter fashion favourites—when you’re wanting to be comfortable indoors and also look stylish—a bold-coloured top always does the trick. There’s some great options in our collection that will see you through autumn and winter, including this gorgeous Peta Animal Print Pleated Blouse which will suit most settings. It has tiny pleats all over, balloon sleeves and elasticated cuffs. It would look perfect with a fitted jacket, slim-fit pants and heels.

Darina Waterfall Knit Cardigan

An oversized cardi never goes out of style in winter. This Darina Waterfall Knit Cardigan is available in a range of colours to suit your wardrobe pieces. It ties high up on the midsection, drawing attention to your waist and creating an hourglass shape. Simply wear as is, or if you want to follow 2023 catwalk trends, try draping a shawl over the top and pinning with a brooch. Slim pants, statement winter boots and your designer shoulder bag will top this look off.

Indira Oversized Knit Jumper

Staying on knitwear, this solid print Indira Oversized Knit Jumper will keep you perfectly cosy this autumn and winter. This jumper is super flattering and will give you plenty of wear over the cold months. Better yet, it comes in just about every colour option you could hope for! A dream styling piece for every wardrobe! Wear with leggings, jogger pants or jeans. If you want to dress the outfit up, style with one of our statement coats and knee length boots.

Marietta Pleated Satin Midi Dress

Finally, if you’re looking for a stylish day dress this Autumn, you can’t go past the Marietta Mock Wrap Pleated Satin Midi Dress. This Italian-made dress has a soft hand feel, pleats from the waist down, and a cute sash. Pair it with this Cartia Vegan Leather Trench Coat and heeled boots for a classic autumn look. In winter, add tights and a scarf for extra warmth. (The Marietta dress is available in three gorgeous prints!)

We hope you enjoy our autumn and winter fashion items this year!
