4 key trends you must try this AW17

There are many ladies out there that hate the thought of autumn and winter rearing its ugly head. I for one, prefer the warm sun on my skin 24/7 but alas, I live in England and the colder months are fast approaching. When it comes to reinventing your wardrobe for September onwards, you can always expect the usual oversized knits and leather black boots to make an entrance but this season, something interesting is happening…A/W looks to be fun!

If you don’t believe me, have a little explore of this lovely lot of trends that will keep your style looking current, effortless and will show you have a sense of fun (and fashion) about you.

Florals in winter? Well it’s a trend that always ducks in and out but really when the sun is low and the clouds move in, surely we all need a colourful reminder that flowers exist all year round no matter the temperature?
