A/W 18: The trends that are turning my head…

As we say goodbye to a glorious summer it’s time to start looking though our autumn winter wardrobe and look for the gaps that can be filled with new season loveliness!

For me this autumn is all about print, chunky knits, lots of texture and biker everything! Ok not everything… you can keep the biker helmet but definitely the jacket and boots!

I’ve always been a jeans girl which, if you’ve followed my Instagram for a while you’ll know, but I feel the need to add a touch of the feminine this season, break my mould and stop reaching for the familiar so when I spotted the following dress on Very, I knew I had a starting point…

V by Very printed midi dress

As a girl with an hourglass figure this dress is the perfect shape for me, it nips in my waste and hides where I carry most of my weight (hips and bum!) The sleeve is an ideal length for covering the top of the arms and the print is glorious! I’ll be pairing this with a huge cardigan, opaque tights and biker boots once the cold creeps in.

A trend, which is definitely not leaving us anytime soon, is animal print. You’ve only got to open a magazine and there it is, it’s a huge part of our every day wardrobe now and for me, animal is definitely a neutral…

This skirt has lot’s going on, print… frills…. a peak of thigh but I love it! Here I’ve pared the look back with a basic white tee and trainers which makes it perfect for the daytime but for the evening, just pop on a pair of long black boots and a skinny knit and you are good to go!

Now I couldn’t talk about A/W without including any form of knitwear so here are a few of my current favourites…

River Island chunky cardigan (I have this in green but sadly its sold out so I’ve linked it in glorious pink!)

I’ve styled here with the perfect white V neck tee

I love a skinny rib jumper for pairing with wide leg trousers or layering under dungarees or dresses, this one is beautiful shade of raspberry pink but is also available in plenty of other colours. It would also look amazing with the animal print skirt!

What I’m really enjoying about this new season is the colour, vibrancy and fun! It can be easy to pull out your dark outfits when the weather looks dreary but popping on a splash of colour really can help to lift your mood!

As always thanks for reading!
