Going shopping? Top Four Key Pieces for Fall

Taking a look at the catwalk this season it is easy to pick just four key pieces that will take you through Fall without accidently slipping onto the fashion reject pile. Mix and match these items with your existing wardrobe and you will find yourself ahead of the fashion pack. All it takes is a little imagination and a whole lot of style!

Shearling Jacket

Shearling jackets, or aviator jackets as they are known to some, are the number one item that graced the catwalk this season, becoming hugely popular thanks to designer Christopher Bailey at Burberry. Shearling jackets are now sold all across the high street with some very good quality designs at a snippet of catwalk prices. Team with skinny jeans and white vest and biker boots for a casual look or even mix with a floral dress to change your complete look.

Maxi Dress

Maxi dresses are the key length of the season, taking this summer’s trend and adding tights, boots and a fur gilet to the mix. Folk prints and 70′s inspired patterns are set to be huge with influences from bohemians and celebrities such as Rachel Zoe and Nicole Richie, who all work the hippy look down to a tee. Maxi dresses were seen on the catwalk from designers such as Marc Jacobs and Erdem, with oversized cardigans thrown over for a casual daytime look. Floor length gowns are no longer just suitable evening attire.

Fur Gilet

Fur Gilet are set to become huge again after a couple of seasons ago when they were all over the high street and celebrities. It started with the fashion pack, then moved to celebville then was spotted on various footballers wives. This is when the trend died. However it is back with avengence and the shops are slowly starting to filter the trend into their designs. Remember only faux fur is acceptable, although vintage fur gilets are rare to come buy so if you do find one to hang on to, it will be worth a hell of a lot of money when the trend comes round again. Work the gilet into your Fall wardrobe, wearing over your new maxi dress or even over your old leather jacket, some skinny jeans tucked into this season’s boot and a boho style peasant top. Very Sienna Miller circa 2005.

Fur Lined Ankle Boot

Fur lined boots are a welcome addition to the winter months, although I wouldn’t recommend walking in the snow purely because if these boots are to look as ‘fashion’ as possible then the heel needs to be high! These boots have a great grip design on the bottom and are a great item to team with this season’s aviator jackets. Fur boots were seen on the catwalk from yetti boots at Chanel to fur lined biker boots at Burberry, it seems the only way to be fashionable with your feet this coming season is to be warm and toasty. Now which fashionista would disagree with that?
