Boy, am I loving what’s trending at the moment or what?!
The A/W17 fashion scene has to be one of the best there’s been in a while.
It is AMAZING…EVERYTHING is amazing!
From sequins to flare sleeves, velvet, embroidery, glitter, faux fur and satin, it would be hard not to find something you’re completely lusting over.
For this month’s style edit, I’ve popped together some of the key styles and pieces I’m really wanting to buy, and I think you will too. They’re perfect for party season, and will ensure you’re looking ultra glam, all winter long!
Everyone needs a sequin dress! Invest, fashionistas! YOU NEED ONE!
Try the Zara Cut-Out Shoulder Dress
Boots with jewels, um yes please! There’s so many gorgeous statement shoes out at the moment. If jewels don’t take your fancy, there’s other statement options such as lace, glitter and embroidery. Yep, my shoe obsession just got bigger!
Faux Fur Coat
It’s a sure bet that faux fur coats will be ‘in’ every year. They’re warm, sexy and can style up a casual outfit in zero time! From crop to long, animal print to au naturel, you’ll certainly be able to find a faux fur jacket that’ll suit you.
The bigger sleeve, the better! As I mentioned in my Check Mate blog post this week, big statement sleeves aren’t going anywhere. They’re so flattering and make an outfit instantly chic and stylish. So whatever the sleeve – flare, ruffle, flute, oversized, etc etc, make sure you inject them into your winter wardrobe.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, velvet is DEFINITELY one of this season’s (and next season’s) hottest trends! It’s a material that is just so luxe. It seems like every brand is doing some kind of velvet shoe at the moment, and I literally want every pair!
Like velvet, satin is also oh so luxe. When done well, it’s the type of material that looks so expensive and super gorgeous. I know I’ll be wearing satin for years to come, so I have started building a little collection of pieces. Well, I only have a few dresses, but now it’s time for a skirt, blouse, jacket and pants, oh and some shoes!
Try H&M Satin Skirt
Metallic: It’s sexy, slinky and stylish. So, join in the fun and add a bit of wow to your wardrobe with a metallic fashion injection! I love metallic, and I think you should too!
Earrings are IN! Yes, statement earrings are back, and metal hardware, pearls and diamonds are leading the way. Did I hear you say ‘fabulous, darling‘?!
Embroidery is yet another trend that isn’t going anywhere and continues to be reinvented. For something a little different, but very, very glamorous, try a tulle, lace or mesh dress/top/jacket with floral, sequin or beaded embroidery. So perfect, and so pretty for cocktail season.
From pinstripe to satin, metallic, and of course velvet, two piece suits are all the rage. I believe they are such a chic way to create a polished and streamlined look, for not only winter, but for any time of the year.
Minimalistic bags are massive in the fashion world right now, especially when they feature the metal circular ring. Cool, versatile and timeless…yep, get one!
