How to nail autumn fashion with an avant-garde twist

Autumn is just the perfect season to experiment with your wardrobe choices! We are talking about endless layer combinations that can take your style to the next level and help you stand out in a crowd. From cozy knits to statement outerwear, autumn offers a canvas of rich colors and textures that allow you to explore your fashion creativity. So, why limit yourself to the predictable when you can embrace the avant-garde and make a memorable statement this fall? We definitely urge you to try something new and we are here to help with this short fashion guide! 

Get inspired from avant-garde designers

To get more excited and inspired for your autumn looks, we suggest you explore some avant-garde icons, who are known for their unique and boundary-pushing style. You could either recreate an outfit or pick out bits and pieces to build your own style from. We’d like to bring your attention to the works’ of world famous designers like Yohji Yamamoto, Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen. Their fearless exploration of avant-garde elements has not only challenged conventional style norms but also inspired countless fashion enthusiasts to experiment with their looks! We’d also like to mention Jonathan Anderson and Stella McCartney who take subtle cues from the avant-garde movement, infusing their designs with a refreshing blend of creativity and practicality.

Experiment with colours 

While earthy tones are synonymous with autumn, don't be afraid to infuse bold and unexpected colors into your wardrobe. Think deep purples, electric blues, and fiery reds. Mixing unconventional hues can create a striking avant-garde appearance amidst the autumn backdrop. If you do wish to stay more monochromatic, then we have good news for you. The base of the avant-garde look is often built on striking monochromatic palettes, allowing you to play with textures and silhouettes for a sophisticated yet edgy aesthetic.

Mix and match textures

In avant-garde fashion, playing with textures becomes a crucial tool for creating statement looks, even during the autumn season. Experimenting with unexpected material combinations such as pairing a leather jacket with a silk skirt or layering a chunky knit sweater over a metallic dress can infuse your autumn wardrobe with a bold and unique edge. These unconventional contrasts not only add visual interest to your outfit but also showcase your creative approach to autumn fashion. 

Embrace asymmetrical tops

To get started with avant-garde style, pick clothes that have uneven shapes or unusual textures. They're easier to wear in your daily outfits and can give you confidence to try more unconventional clothing. Once you feel comfortable enough with these pieces, you can experiment with layering and incorporate bolder fashion choices! Here’s an  example of an asymmetrical long black avant-garde dress, that’s just suitable for the colder days. At Follow Me FS store you can find more asymmetrical pisces for your autumn collection!

Don’t shy away from layering

Honestly, that is the easiest avant garde-approach out there. Besides, autumn is the perfect time to add various pieces until you get that desired look! In the avant-garde realm, layering often involves mixing textures, patterns, and lengths in unexpected ways. Our suggestion for you is combining unconventional pieces like asymmetrical tops, oversized coats, and structured vests to create a bold and sophisticated look.
