Fashion trends come and go, and it can be tempting to constantly update our wardrobes to keep up with the latest styles. As we know, the fashion industry is one of the biggest contributors to pollution and waste, with clothes often ending up in landfills after just a few wears. As consumers, we have the power to change this by embracing preloved fashion. Preloved fashion is not only environmentally sustainable, but it also allows us to stay on-trend while expressing our unique personal style. In this blog post, we'll explore some of the latest fashion trends and show you how to incorporate preloved fashion from Tor’s Thrifty Store into your wardrobe, so you can look great while doing your part for the planet.
Standout Street Style Jackets
While the runway looks during fashion week always have us in awe of the creative talent, it’s the people on the street that also catch our eye. Street style fashion is all about personal expression and standing out from the crowd. One way we saw so many people do this is with unique jackets and coats. From statement pieces to vintage finds, there are endless possibilities to elevate your outfit with outerwear. From faux fur jackets, or jackets with fur detailing, the return of the classic bomber jacket, leather jackets with unique hardware, or jackets with interesting prints or embellishments with a nod to eras gone by, these are just a few examples of statement jackets and coats that can add a wow factor to your look.

If you’ve been following us for a while, you know we’re all about an eclectic and individualistic approach to fashion – it’s how we can express ourselves after all. This fashion season, we saw the inclusion of punk fashion vibes, which while they have been a popular inspiration for runway looks for decades, this season we saw the outfits characterized by rebellious and interesting elements such as ripped clothing, belted details, leather jackets, and bold hair and makeup looks. If you’re keen to rock the punk look in your own wardrobe, we’ve got you covered with some of our favourite picks below.
Step 2: Walking Tall with Boots
It wouldn’t be an Autumn Winter trend report without mentioning boots! This season, we saw a lot of thigh high boots, which are perfect for keeping you warm while wearing a leg-bearing outfit, as well as being a statement piece that completes your look. While we are a fan of thigh grazing boots, they aren’t always practical to wear with every outfit. So, in our picks from Tor’s Thrifty Store, we’ve included all of our current favourite boots that will achieve the look whilst also being a little more practical than the high-fashion take on the runway.
Rich and Earthy with Brown Tones
We loved seeing the incorporation of this versatile colour this season. From chocolatey browns to lighter taupe shades, brown clothing offers a range of options for creating stylish, monochromatic, and sophisticated looks. You can go for a full brown look, add it in with your accessories, or opt for a knockout brown element to stay on trend. Brown is a timeless and versatile colour that complements every skin tone and aesthetic. Shop our collection of delectable brown from Dresses to Trousers, Tops and Skirts below.
Dark Feminine Romance
The dark feminine romance fashion trend was seen on the runway and is a style that combines elements of gothic, romantic, and feminine fashion. Often featuring dark and moody colours like black, deep burgundy, and dark purple, along with lace, velvet, and other luxurious fabrics. The looks are dramatic, with flowing skirts, corsets, and other elements that emphasize the feminine silhouette. This style is all about embracing the beauty and power of dark and moody fashion while still maintaining a feminine edge. It's a great way to explore your individual aesthetic and express your personality through fashion. Combine your look with a bold lip in a deep shade like burgundy with soft, smoky eye makeup to add to the dramatic effect. Add a dark feminine spin to your wardrobe with our key pieces.
Straight Trousers for a Polished Look
Looking for a fashion trend from the Autumn Winter 2023 runways that is adaptable for your office attire? Straight trousers create a streamlined silhouette that looks incredible paired with voluminous tops, jackets, and coats, cropped tops and everything in between. They’re a versatile choice for both casual and formal occasions as they can be dressed up with a blazer and heels for a more formal look or paired with a t-shirt and sneakers for a more casual vibe. We have a huge range of trousers and denim that you’ll wear and cherish for years to come.
