These two looks are all about texture – it’s currently playing a large role in the world of fashion; leather trousers, vinyl coats, suede t-shirts – we’re seeing the lot. So, I’m going to show you my take on the current trends…
Suede and Zips
Suede and fur in one – amazing! This DKNY gilet/waistcoat/whatever-you-want-to-call-it is something that I recently picked up from Bicester Village (an amazing place with one shop even selling discount MAC!), explaining why I could actually afford it ha. Suede is everywhere this season and what better way to wear it than a not very practical, but totally luxe and glam jacket! Also, ripped jeans are so very ‘in’ at the moment, I’d be surprised if you don’t own a pair! Never mind if adults make stupid jokes about you falling over in them (they need to look-up fashion!) – ripped jeans will elongate your legs and make you a true fashionista. Finally, the zip-detailing and turtleneck of my jumper are both little nods to AW 15 shows. Turtlenecks are literally in every high street store right now and that’s because they suit EVERYONE; men and women, young and old. Zip-detailing can be tricky – you don’t want it to look tacky, hence I went for only a couple of zips, but, watch out, zips are replacing buttons fast at the minute!
See, what was I saying about zips?! They’re all over the shop in AW 15 – this one even adds a hint of geometrics, another major trend in accessories. Another polo neck – they’re my winter go-to, the need for a scarf disappears! Corduroy, however, is the focus of this outfit – very ’90s. I remember having a pair of pink corduroy trousers as a kid, when the influence of the ’90s hadn’t quite seeped out of the Noughties yet! However, most of all, I love the shape of this dress. It fits my rather curvy figure very well, but I think it would also give more rectangle-shaped girls an amazing illusion of curves, with it’s buckle-belt. Last, but definitely not least, the coat – oh how I adore coats. Each season, I have to have a new coat/jacket; it’s verging on an obsession and it’s even spread to my boyfriend! This coat is wool and polyester and boxy shaped, which is better for slender girls really, but I just loved the blue colour too much… Whoops.
