A/W Trends

As Summer is coming to an end (sorry to remind everyone), the shops are filling up with the new season's trends. Straight from the catwalk are a few hints of what is to come for Autumn/Winter which can be read below!


This Autumn/Winter it's all about femininity, with rosy pinks emerging as a strong colour trend! These pink hues have been spotted on the runways from the likes of Lanvin and Nina Ricci (seen below).

Meanwhile on the highstreet, Topshop have caught onto this trend fast - recently tweeting a collection of 'sherbet coloured' clothing - which fits in perfectly with this trend (click here).

Below are a few more pink coloured pieces that may be worth investing in!

Zara Short Woollen Overcoat

This perfect, powder pink overcoat from Zara is definitely worth investing in for Autumn/Winter, especially as this trend is particularly big for outerwear!

Ethnic Embroidery Slim Fit Trousers
I also love these slim fit trousers by Mango - a perfect staple trouser as it moves into those colder days.

More inspiration for this pink trend can be found on my pinterest by clicking here!


Plaid is back! Dig out your checked shirts and kilts as this is a big trend for Autumn/Winter. With Chanel showcasing a collection including dashes of plaid, in a castle just outside of Edinburgh, it was obvious that plaid had defnintely made a comeback! You can watch some of the show here. (Amazing!!) 

Recently I purchased a plaid skirt from American Apparel which can be seen below.

On sale when I bought it for around £20

I also have a checked shirt which I purchased from Zara last year and still love - this will  be making an appearance again this season. However, the shirt below is a new item Zara have brought in which I particularly love!

90's Grunge

Linking to the return of plaid, 90s Grunge is also making a massive comeback as shown by Saint Laurent in their Fall 2013 Catwalk which can be seen on youtube by clicking here.

I recently purchased a leather skirt from Forever 21 which I have teamed up with a few items to create a grunge inspired outfit.  

More inspiration for this trend can be viewed through my pinterest page by clicking here.

Animal Print

I've never really been a fan of animal print, but after seeing Burberry and Stella McCartney's A/W collections, I have been convinced that animal print can look classy and sophisticated if worn well!

Burberry A/W 2013
After my recent persuasion I decided to purchase this animal print top which was a bargain from Forever 21 (seen below). 

Forever 21 Safari Leopard Print Shirt
This leopard print playsuit (seen below) is another of my favourites which was previously out of stock, but I think they may have brought in more due to its popularity. 

Further inspiration can again be taken from my pinterest by clicking here.

That's all from me today. 
Hope this has given you some ideas for A/W shopping!
