Trending this Autumn/Winter 2016
So another season and more trends…and with that in mind what should one wear for the coming Autumn/Winter? There is lots of gorgeous bits and choice around for everyone. This season its all about the detail, inspiration for designers has been taken from the street, sport, film, fantasy, fairytale, modern art and miltary hence the highstreet has us spoilt for choice!
Take inspiration from the far east and add a touch of Orient to your wardrobe. Think floral,silken fabrics, and bright prints. There is plenty of this trend on the highstreet so its time to embrace this beautiful decadent trend.

This trend is taking the fashion industry by storm, from footwear, to dresses.

Whether its an army shirt, parka or utility trousers, every girls should own a military inspired piece this season. Such an easy trend to wear. Team Khaki shirts with Denim and a pair of killer heels! Don’t forget to add those statement accessories!! You’re in the Army now!

Gothic Glam/Femme Fatale!
Gothic glam or the dark femme fatale is dominating the trends for Autumn/Winter. Floaty layers of sheer blacks, Glam goth with lace edgings and layers. Its about the sheer and lace and if you are to invest in one thing make it a sheer/lace top/blouse that can be worn with both denim and evening wear. With this trend keep the neckline high in tops and dresses and not only can you go dark black, try oxblood and midnight blues.

Bomber jackets are having their moment this year and are continuing to dominate the Autumn/Winter. The jacket doesn’t have to be a one hit wonder either, it can be worn with anything…jeans, tulle skirts, a mini dress with thigh high boots(which are also on trend for this season!) It doesn’t have to be a plain bomber either although the neutral colour palette will allow you wear it with anything. I’m particularly loving the embellished Bomber at the moment but then I am a bit of a magpie!
