Autumn has got to be my favourite season of the year. Not so much for the temperature because I am a lover of the sunshine but simply because I love wrapping up in snug wool jumpers and oversized coats. There are a lot of trends I’m swooning over this A/W and I’ve got to say MANGO and ZARA have some key pieces that I must introduce to my wardrobe in the next coming weeks. *roll on payday*
Lets just start off with blue being one of the key colours that we’ve seen transition from Spring/Summer into Autumn/Winter. Shirts, dresses, coats and denim from baby pastel blue to navy, a very classic colour but more involved with modern and up to date pieces of clothing. Also goes well with almost every colour too!
Soft colours are a big winner for me this Autumn but I think it’s totally important to add splashes of colour using accessories such as scarves, handbags, jewellery or even shoes! Usually, I tend to go for something a little different that doesn’t cost too much just because trends come and go and I often find that I get fed up of outlandish accessories rather quickly.
High necks are still in and I’m so glad because I can pull some of last years roll necks out from the back of the wardrobe. ASOS, Marks & Spencer, Mango and Zara have some of the nicest fabrics when it comes to knitwear and I tend to spend a little more as the softer fabrics are usually a little more expensive but so so worth it.
Embroidered jeans, shirts, tops, shoes, whatever it is I’m loving it! Floral embroidery is really popular at the moment and I feel it just adds that extra ZING to a pair of jeans. Mango have a pair of straight leg jeans in at the moment that I just can’t wait to get my hands on.
So I have a new found love and something I should really start saving for – the Olympus PEN EPL8! I had heard, seen and watched soooo many reviews on the Olympus PEN EPL7 and have been wondering if it would be really worthwhile for me to buy. However, after seeing that the new Pen will be released in October, I really really want to get my hands on it so I can take some fab pictures to share with you all and also hopefully encourage me to start Vlogging! – Maybe santa will put it in my stocking?
Do you have any fashion favourite this A/W? Please share! I would love to discover some new and affordable brands I’ve never heard of before!
