I did a little shopping at the weekend, and wanted to share the fashion items that i picked up. As you will see, I've been loving Topshop lately- their autumn/winter collections are spot on this year. It can be a little hit and miss sometimes, but this year i haven't struggled to find things that i really love!
Initially i just purchased the nude version of this jumper, but as i loved it so much, i had to go back and get the burgundy colour too! I just adore the intricate, embellished collars. They give an otherwise ordinary jumper, a stylish and eye-catching twist. Studding, and anything that's embellished is a huge trend this season, along with the it-colour, burgundy. The nude version looks great with my burgundy jeans, and my leopard print pair too. They also look great with skater skirts, and my tweed jacket. I think they're the perfect additions to add a little glitz to your a/w wardrobe, and there are so many colours to choose from.
I also picked up some new accessories to update my winter pieces. Something that i had spotted on their site and wanted instantly, was the burgundy faux fur snood. It's so soft, and adds such a glamorous touch to any outfit. I wanted it to go with my tweed jacket, and they go together beautifully. It looks very classy and elegant, perhaps even a touch of Downton Abbey!? I then got a knitted burgundy loop scarf, as a casual alternative to the fur snood. This one is ideal for everyday, casual wear, and goes really well with my Hollister gillet that i wear to college. I also couldn't resist these cute ankle socks. I spotted them on the mannequin paired with a skater skirt, thick tights, and black ankle boots, that were very similar to mine from Aldo. They look really cute worn over the top of black tights, poking out of a pair of winter boots. Once again, they're in this seasons' it colour, burgundy- i can't get enough of it!
Lastly from Topshop, i purchased this ribbed, black skater skirt. After seeing the cute socks-and-boots combo on the mannequin, i had to get the skirt too! I think skater skirts look really nice paired with blouses, and jumpers, along with thick tights and boots. They're a nice alternative to my usual option of skinny jeans, and are a very flattering style on most shapes. The material is nice and thick for the colder months, and i can't wait to pair it with my new jumpers, tweed jacket, and faux fur snood!
I also have a new addition from Romwe. They kindly sent me another item to try, and i picked this gorgeous black peplum top. Peplum silhouettes are another key trend this year, and i also loved the extra addition of the gold collar tips and exposed, gold zip. Peplum shapes are very flattering and are the perfect way to incorporate something a little more dressy/smart into your outfit. This one, is very well made and super affordable. I went for a size small, which i think would be suitable for UK sizes 8-10 (although it does run quite large). I will be pairing this with both my new skater skirt, and burgundy jeans.
What are your favourite a/w trends?
