Six Trending Autumn Winter Fashion Colours for 2018

If you want to get a heads up on the trending Autumn Winter Fashion Colours for 2018, you need to read this post. I’ve been quite the researcher as I’ve checked both in stores, online and via fashion shows what colours we will see debuting next season.

While it may be hard to think about cable knit sweaters, cardis and long sleeve tops when it’s hot outside (and humid in QLD), these are the colours we are going to see in these pieces.  I’ve sourced items that are readily available now, if you are wanting to add some colour to your Autumn/Winter wardrobe.

Usually the cooler change has us drawn to wearing darker, moodier colours like black, navy, charcoal, grey and even burgundy. But this Autumn/Winter, we will see some bright colours added to the mix and many of these will intermix well with the existing darker neutrals you may already own.

While a colour may be on trend during the season, there is no point in investing in it if it doesn’t appeal to you or doesn’t suit you. Personally, I would like to give all of them a go, and I know I already own around three of the six trending colours and I hope to invest in three more once winter is here.

Here are the colours you will be seeing next season (which starts next week!)

Six Trending Autumn Winter Fashion Colours for 2018 in Australia by Styled by Bec


A favourite of mine, we are going to be seeing red this winter. It dresses well with black and white, navy and grey. A simple white tee, red cardigan and blue jean outfit is a classic that will never get old.

Shades of Orange

Bright orange and burnt orange hues will also be popular this season. I love this Papaya top from Bohemian Traders. This colour mixes with most neutrals and looks exceptional with navy.


A personal favourite of mine is Lavender. There isn’t much in stores right now, but we will see this colour more over the coming months.

Forest Green and Khaki

Forest Green is another favourite of mine from these colour trends for this season. All shades of green from moss, khaki to the deep and bright shades of forest green will be popular this season.

Duck Blue and Baby Blue

I loved this Duck Blue Blouse from Birdsnest the moment I saw it. All shades of baby blue and duck egg blue will be trending this winter. It’s a gorgeous shade of blue that pairs well with navy, black, white and blush.

Bright Shades of Yellow and Mustard

Mustard was popular last winter and this season, we will see more golden yellows in knits and blouses. It’s not a colour a lot of people can wear, I have to be careful with some shades of yellow as they can wash me out. Yellows look great with blue, navy and black.

Rather than go overboard and invest in pieces from each colour, choose one or two that you can add to your winter wardrobe. Consider how much cost per wear you will get out of the colour too. I’m a big believer in wearing colours that you will wear for a few years.

I have a red cardigan that I wear every Autumn/Winter that I bought many years ago from Witchery. So there will be no need for me to invest in this colour this season. But Duck Blue, Lavender and Papaya – I’m definitely looking at investing in these this winter.
