This summer black, bold prints, rockish details etc were trendy so I liked the fashion alot, but I'm still ready for autumn XD I am still a fashion newb, its been 1 year since I got into gyaru. But these are some things I noticed in the autumn collections. I hope this will be a bit helpful getting ready for A/W.
Well these are real autumn colors right, like literaly XD So it shouldn't be surprising to see them, just this time in gyaru fashion^^ Personally I feel there is some difference between deep red and wine, but generally they are grouped together under "enji" in Japanese.
Also be on the lookout for Cobalt blue and Spring green!!
Besides platform heels, wedges and boots as usual, flat mannish shoes will be trendy. Low socks will continue and you may see some dark color low socks too. These square bags are cropping up big time, and especially in backpack/3way bag form. Backpacks of other varieties will be popular too I guess. The headband trend will continue with knit fabric making it more wintery haha.
Collars will continue where spring left off, they may even grow bigger! This includes lace, peter pan and regular collars. Fringe will be on jersey knit stoles and cardigans. And heavy texture fabrics like suede, corduroy and maybe velvet will be utilized.
Maxi dresses and skirts were/are big always in the summer, that super length will continue into autumn with more maxi skirts, dusters, long cardis and trapeze shirts. Mixing in high color accessories or items with neutrals is part of the color-blocking trend.
Ok, this one gets it's own graphic - the chiffon pleat trend haha, because I really like it XD Pleated skirts are coming out from many gyaru brands already. And although gyaru are known for short skirts, many pleat skirts will be around knee-length. But you can find mini-length and short pants like Red Lip's offering.
