90s throwback
This season takes us back to the 90s, with bold puffer jackets, crop tops, slogan tees and chokers making a scene across catwalks. Some interesting collections styled a mash up of eras. We loved House of Holland captivating fusions of the 90s with pussycat bow wearing 60s trends.

The 90s eclectic nature creates lots of opportunities for you to get creative and experiment. You can go all out grunge, with chunky boots, chokers and crops, or keep it casual with sports luxe style bomber jackets and track pants.

Paris Pastels
On the opposite end of the spectrum, this season designers such as Givenchy and Chanel have expressed their continuing support of a key and personal favourite SS14 trend during Paris fashion Week. Those familiar creamy pastel shades of blue, pink and lavender clashed with AW1K stronger tones of warm reds and oranges this year. So there’s no need to store away those pretty pastels just yet.

Your wardrobe won’t be outmoded with these key prints. Over the years plaid has become synonymous to those long winter months when you want to curl up, cosy by the fire with a glass of wine in hand. So prepare to cover up and stay warm with our all time favourite fall print, from blanket scarfs to knit dresses, plaid is everywhere – and it looks as good and trendy as ever.

Or you can choose to spice things up with show-stealing leopard print, as it took centre stage during fashion week at Paris. Many designers turned up the heat, with panelled corsets and peplum skirts at Balmain and coats at Céline.

Layers, layers, layers
Textures, colours, patterns, chunky knits, faux leather – layer it. You’ll be warm and look amazing.

In the details: the zipper
Keep tightly zipped up until next season with a key AW14 trend. Designers such as Stella McCartney and Roland Mouret have gone mad for zips this season as a statement feature and some interesting chunky detailing. They are functional or purely decorative – or both! We love it either way.

Statement Sweater
Update your wardrobe with a statement sweater, or two, or three… Not only are they amazing because they are so versatile and effortlessly stylish, they are also practical and very cosy. There are ranges of styles from embellished eyelash jumpers, to a simple wool patterned pullovers – there’s bound to be one to everyone’s taste. Everyone loves a sweater. Pull on a pair of leggings and boots and you’re good to go.

The Coat
If one must splurge this season, then one must splurge on a startling statement coat. From double-breasted to oversized wool boyfriend jackets, fur and faux leather, you are sure to look amazing in any of this seasons’ must haves.

A new coat can really pull an outfit together, whilst making you look and feel fabulous, of course. Plus you should really stay wrapped up warm in these long winter months… so you needn’t feel guilty about treating yourself!

Our range of clothing and accessories are constantly updated with the seasons. You’re certain to find the perfect accessory or bag to complement each and every AW14 trend!
