High street fashion retailers unveiled the trends for next season, with tweeds and 1920s glamour playing a big part.
River Island’s womenswear collection includes classic tweed jackets and skirts mixed with green tops, bags and shoes.
There is also a vintage feel, with 1920s-style dresses and gold sandals. Influences for Oasis’s autumn/winter collection (left) range from Katherine Hepburn’s sophisticated tailoring to rock-and-roll glamour.
The ‘Bloomsbury’ story imitates the style of the literary set of the early 1920s, with ribbon embellishments and prints.
New Look declared that next season ‘is all about being a lady’, with round-toe shoes matched with plaid skirts and jackets. Similarly, Warehouse is inspired by the ladylike 1940s and 1950s, but a bohemian hippy trend influenced by the 1970s is also evident.
