I woke up on 1st September and walked out the door and I was super excited, it was a crisp, cool sunny autumn morning. The leaves are turning to all kinds of wonderful shades of oranges and browns and the shops are full of tonal claret shades. Jumpers and winter coats take the focus on the high street and there are some obvious trends emerging, and it is time to invest in a new winter coat.
I’ve heard on the fashpack grapevine that there are some key trends for AW15, including tweed, military, full length and white but, by far, my fav trend for this winter is (as always) fur, faux that is! I have donned a fur coat for the winter for many years now and it is by far my go to coat.
I popped to Cabot Circus today and made the most of a day off to look in all the shops. I made sure I took my phone with the Cabot Circus PLUS app available on iTunes (or you can get the Google Play one) so that I could find out where to go and take advantage of all of the offers on the app.
Everywhere I looked the fur trend was obvious. New Look and Pull & Bear had some fab value for money fur trim parkers, Warehouse had some all over fur waistcoats and Topshop has gone for the animal print.
My fav offering of fur, however, goes to River Island, with a huge and diverse selection, where I picked up a gorgeous mid-length leather jacket with a luxurious faux fox fur trim. It’s got silver hardware and has hints of the military vibe. It fits perfectly and it was the first one I saw at the front of the Bristol store, I even gave it a nod on my way in, as if to say, “Yup, you’re the one!”.
I can’t wait to wear it through the colder weather, team it with a skirt, some thick tights and my boots and a woolly hat thrown in for good measure!
There are some really tempting offers on the PLUS app right now that are definitely worth checking out:
- Complimentary Dior Addict Masterclass
- Goody bags and party make-up for PLUS users
- 20% discount at Zest Bistro
