A/W 2012 Trend Report

If it shimmers in a metallic tone be in Gold, Silver or Bronze you want to bag it before anyone else does. Statement jeans are also massive for the is season so if you can get your hands on metallic colour jeans do it. Whatever you do though don’t go head to two in metallic colours, break up statement trousers with white loose shirts or knits and leather always looks good. Accessories look great in metallic shades and are an easy & cheap way to update your wardrobe with the trend.

This season hottest colour is Cobolt, a bright vivid blue that will liven up anyone’s winter wardrobe, seeing it now it seems the perfect winter colour, I can’t believe it has not been done before! It was seen on the runways of Lavin, Emporio Armani, Sportmax oh and Mulberry to name a few.

Why when one amazing layer when you can wear 5, layering is a British Girls best friend with our notoriously changeable weather. And now it is one of the biggest trends for Autumn Winter. The key to this new layered look is the return of wearing skirts over trousers, or if you want to air on the side of caution then try a long top or tunic. Long line jackets & coats complete the look but cropped versions will also look great on. To stop the look feeling bulky on go for thinner layers and add height with heels, square heels are big this season or flat-form creepers. Bold clashing prints are also a must, think harlequin clown.

Go Large
Big is beautiful this Autumn, with Cocoon coats, pillow-sleeved jackets and billowing trousers and softly structured skirts featuring through the catwalk collection. Shoulders were dropped, lengths longer and trousers had a low crotches. Creating a confident Tomboy look keep things simple, strict and streamlined.
The easiest way to go large is to mix slimline structures- think cigarette trousers- with opposites Cocoon Coat. With this trend let your silhouette be the focus and eschew accessories. Wear your oversized coat one size up, if you feel a little swapped then belt the waist.
