5 Must Have Looks for Autumn 2016

Winter is coming…and with it a whole new range to shop in every store! These are some of my favourite looks from the likes of Balenciaga, Prada, Celine and Gucci that are certain to be huge hits on the High Street and hopefully my wardrobe too!

Prada

Velvet Everything

A/W 2016 velvet will be huge! If like me you have had a velvet choker super glued to you for most of 2016 then Autumn will not disappoint. Whether its velvet and jewelled choker, a cute work pinafore or a flowing gown you need some velvet in your life next season.

Sparkles

Alexander McQueen has set the standard for the barely there sparkle dress but I’m sure the High Street will be quick to develop their own little gems. Nude, Black and Sparkle’s that resemble the Milky Way will be everything…and I cannot wait!

(Yes that is an actual unicorn in the middle!)

A Sweet Heart Neckline

The most adorable of all the necklines will be back with a bang but not always on pretty a line dresses as you would expect. Sweet Hearts will be given an edge and layered with knitwear and outerwear. This Dior combo (left) is my personal favourite but Kenzo  were a close second with this look below…maybe minus the boots.

 

Luxe Sportswear

Even Balenciaga have joined in with this trend showing puffer jackets and wide collared sports coats. With this surge of Luxe Sportswear hitting the run way , Top Shop recently announcing their collaboration with Addidas and of course Beyoncé’s Ivy Park range; Will it soon be perfectly acceptable to go everywhere in leggings, a hoody and trainers? Pobably not, but I cetrtaintly will be making maximum use of this look when possible!

 

The Statement Mac

I don’t mean your average cream, beige or black mac, next season will all be about Mac’s in colours, textures and even animal print. River Island are already a head of the game with this Leopard Print Over Coat and I think the rest of the High Street Stores will be soon to follow.

 

Who else is kind of excited for the return of wearing black (even more), boots, jumpers and sparkles!!!??

NYC Looks – Perfect Outfits for New York Pt 2

I have loved planning my outfits for New York but have enjoyed scrapping my plans and throwing together things at the last minute more. These looks were the result of ditching my plans and experimenting with the two cases full of clothes I brought with me to New York. Never be afraid to experiment!
