The New Season Buys For AW17 To Invest In Now

With the new season nearly in full swing, that only means one thing… a wardrobe over-haul.

That’s right, with the colder weather on the way it’s time to shake things up and invest in some seriously stylish AW17 pieces.

Tap into the trends early and get your style sussed before everyone else. We’ve rounded up the top 5 trends coming your way and the key pieces you need to buy. Happy shopping. 

Check Mate

Checks, Prince of Wales or houndstooth, whatever way you choose, if it’s black and white then it’s seriously on trend. The most coveted piece for this trend is a smart blazer. Choose an over-sized double breasted one so you can fit a chunky knit underneath for the colder months ahead, that way you’ll be able to wear it all season long.

Serious Shine

From sequins, the lurex to PVC, if it’s not shiny it’s not stylish. The it piece of the season is a shiny pleated skirt that you can easily dress up or down, for days wear with an over-sized knit and ankle boots, then amp it up for evenings a slinky blouse and as high as you can handle heels. For the fashionably brave out there, try a high shine coat in a flattering cut that pinches you in at the waist.

Sporty Spins

Whether it’s with a warm puffa coat, a bright block jumper or colourful lines down the sides of your trousers, any item with a sporty spin will earn you high fashion points. If this trend seems a bit too daunting for you, then ease yourself in with stand out trainers.

Velvet, velvet and more velvet.

Soft to the touch and oozing glamour, make velvet your go-to fabric for AW17. From trousers, to dresses to shoes, there’s no hiding from it this season. For the fashion forward readers out there, go full velvet with a matching suit.

Bold Knits

Chunky and bright with a fair isle feel, the cosier you feel the more fashionable you’ll look. Style note – if you’re going bold on the top, then keep it simple with the bootm. A chic pair of tailored pants with the knit layered over a crisp white shirt is a grown up way to approach this trend.
