As I have made it abundantly clear before, boots and coats are my shopping weaknesses; no I don’t need anymore, but yes I will be purchasing many more before the year is out!
A statement coat in AW is essential as half of the time it’s too damn cold to take it off so it should be the outfit, not cover the outfit. Missguided always have gorgeous coats on offer and I picked this one up last year and it is still by far one of my absolute faves. It is so flattering for my shape, I love the long length and it is a great mix of smart and casual. It isn’t the warmest coat I have ever owned but the sleeves are quite wide so I find it really easy to layer underneath without it being uncomfortable.
Cord is a big trend for AW and this skirt is so cute to wear with knee high boots or thick tights and ankle boots. Whack on a shirt, roll neck or simple tee; it’s super versatile and an easy way to throw a nod to a trend without being covered head to toe.
Metallics is another trend for AW and this across the body bag from Next is perfect; it also comes in other colours and is such a good piece for this season (My Instagram is a little spammed with this beauty….) ! I like how the chain can be made different lengths so the bag can be worn in various ways depending on your outfit.
Next, ASOS and Missguided are rocking it right now when it comes to on trend, wearable and affordable pieces so take some time out for some serious perusing. I try not to follow every trend but instead do a slight nod to them whilst in keeping with my own style and there are some great high street pieces you can pick up to do this without breaking the bank *thank me later debit card…*
