The AW16 Womenswear Blank Garment Edit

You may have caught our AW16 Menswear blank garment edit in last weeks blog post and this time the ladies are getting the same treatment. We’ve scanned the catwalk looks and compiled a list of our favourite AW16 trends to help get you started on your new collection. We’ve also included some garments from our newest supplier Urban Classics.

Purple Haze

From lilac to deep plum and everything in between. Get experimental by mixing shades as well as textures à la Kenzo. The American Apparel Power Wash T-Shirt (from £5.20) is really versatile or you could go sporty with the California Fleece Pullover Dress (from £15.45)

Sport Luxe

Fabrics normally reserved for evening wear and high end accessories are applied to classic sportswear silhouettes. We love this Urban Classics Satin Bomber Jacket (from £21.25) which is available in several colours. For an edgier look try the American Apparel Unisex Fleece Jacket which also comes in a leather look sleeve variation.

Return of the V-Neck

Go extreme with a sweetheart neckline or reign it in with a casual deep V like the Bella + Canvas Sheer Jersey Double V T-Shirt (from £2.65) or American Apparel Deep V T-Shirt (from £5.45).

This texture will be prominent across both evening and day looks and though not ideal for screen printing it will work really well with embroidery. Urban Classics have just released the Ladies Short Velvet Crew (from £11.95) as well as matching leggings. Alternatively if you want to apply this texture to t-shirts or hoodies you could try flocking. The process works by first screen printing an adhesive base before applying small synthetic or natural fibres and heat pressing to seal.
