I took a little haiatus from mylittleblogdress of late but could not resist the urge to start blogging again!
Whilst I must confess to not being the biggest fan of Spring/Summer fashion (what's the point in Ireland!?), I adore Autumn/Winter fashion and in case you have moved to a sunny climate, you cannot but have noticed the darker evenings, the cool chilly breeze in the mornings and the need for hot water bottles!!
But fear not, as the new A/W trends are arriving in stores at the moment and there is something to suit every taste, size and shape.
Zara has produced a strong trend driven collection which is full of jewel coloured tones such as berry/crimson, mustard and jade with splashes of metallic in gold, silver and bronze adding a glamourous touch.
Animal print looks like it's here to stay too and whilst leopard print dominated the looks last season, snakeskin has replaced its spots on everything from shoes, clutch bags, scarves and wallets.
The 60s mod trend can also be seen in the form of peter pan collars, swing coats and pleating on skirts.
Skirt length has been dropped a few inches from the hem and the mid-length skirt or midi looks like it's here to stay.
Leather too is huge this season. Leather trimmed tops, leather panelling, leather tunics, skirts and leather leggings (think Isabel Marrant style) are all featuring heavily in the shops.
I will follow up this post with mylitttleblogdress's star buys for the season ahead but in the meantime I hope I have whet your appetite for a/w fashion....
