Summer is now officially over (sobs). Don’t be blue though because as the sun fades and takes with it maxi-dresses and shorts, autumn and winter bring jumpsuits, metallics, lace, LBDs and ponchos. A new season, and we present the five biggest reasons to be excited.
Jessica Alba, Miranda Kerr and Kim Kardashian know that no other apparel performs harder than a jumpsuit. After all, you simply just throw it on and don’t have to worry about coordinating, and it’s this nonchalance that makes it so chic. We’ve gone one step further and created a jumpsuit that even takes the worry out of accessorising, with a beautiful sequin cowl neck that injects just the right amount of glamour. Perfect with both heels and flats, wear it to your Christmas party to stand out against the usual sea of LBDs.
If you love this jumpsuit but seek something which lends itself more to everyday, then check out this off-the-shoulder offering. You’re welcome.
Fashion is giving the world the cold shoulder with cut-outs, batwings and asymmetrical tops – never have shoulders been so fashionable. Nia silver top hits two trends at once in showing just the right amount of shoulder in a totally on-point fabric. Nothing screams winter more than metallics, rich and opulent golds and shimmery silvers can beautifully transition from day to night just by adding heels.
We do love lace for its ability to give a winter staple the ‘where-did-you-get-it?’ factor. We’re not the only ones in love with lace, the catwalks have been awash with it and it seems that supermodel Cara Delevingne hasn’t stepped out of the fabric since the first chills of autumn came.
From the front, this soft grey top looks like a classic sweater but from the back, the lace detailing propels it into must-have winter essential. This baby has got back.
Admit it, when you think of winter you think of a shameless opportunity to get cosy but are torn with the need to stay stylish. Never fear, staying snug need not equal sacrificing on style, not with this sparkling poncho which is designed to dress up daywear or heat-up evening wear. Perfect for the transition to winter, when a coat just feels too warm. Available in 7 colours, choose from grey, beige, cream, navy, red, black or khaki and prepare for your ‘What, this? – I just threw it on’ moment.
Every party season needs the perfect dress and Paris Fashion Week is wedging bets on the dress of the season capturing the underwear as outerwear trend. Soft draping, lace detailing and body hugging fabrics were shown at Chanel and Stella McCartney, all signalling a season of femininity and softness. This midi-dress encapsulates the trend perfectly, with its off-the-shoulder neckline and delicate lace trimming on the sleeves and neckline. The perfect dress for the festive season (and beyond), dress down with a leather jacket and boots or dress-up with sparkly heels.
