Winter Fashion Trends – Red Hot
The colour of the winter season is predominately reds, whether you go for the full outfit in bold reds or accessorise your outfit with striking red footwear and a matching bag. Taking over from the classic LBD (Little Black Dress) is this seasons must have in the form of a LRD. Here’s a couple of my favourite red designs to add to your winter wardrobe.
SPLURGE – Karen Millen Classic Trench Coat £199 This is a timeless statement piece which is worth the investment. Available in sizes 8 – 16, this is a versatile coat which would look phenomenal buttoned up and teamed up with a pair of black jeans and boots or left open with a crisp white shirt and trousers on the way to and from the office.

Winter Fashion Trends – Corduroy
For many this is a love or hate material and a key collection which was seen throughout the 70s. The use of corduroy creates texture and colour to almost any outfit. For AW17 you can expect corduroy in rich colours from mustards, autumnal oranges and deeper hues of blue across the high street. This is due to corduroy’s prevalence on many big labelled brand’s AW17 catwalks.
SPLURGE – G Star High Waisted Wide Leg Chunky Cord Trousers £115 – I wasn’t a fan of this AW17 trend until I saw these! This is what I would call an introduction to corduroy. They’re a more subtle colour so they would be perfect for someone to be able to try the design for the first time. These teamed up with a plain white top and a simple pair of strap heals would create an instant fashionista look with minimal effort required. Find them from ASOS here.
SAVE – M&S Cotton Rich Corduroy Slim Leg Trousers £19.50 – In comparison to the G Star Trousers these will appeal to more people due to their slim fit, again these will instantly transform any outfit from drab to fab! I love that they have teamed these with a closed checked shirt and black flat heeled boots, this would be my ideal outfit for a day out in town!
