Dreaming of Gucci…

photovisi-download

Autumn is on its way and I am officially ready to begin transitioning my wardrobe.

There are many designer shows that influence me when I transition my wardrobe in between seasons, and for AW I am taking much inspiration from the 60’s edge at Gucci. Often I study shows during fashion week and I see pieces I like across the board, but it is only a few shows that will truly inspire me in their entirety, and Gucci was one of those this season.

This isn’t the first time that I am writing about the Gucci AW14-15 show, and the closer Autumn gets the more I find myself dreaming of all things Gucci…and how I can get the look at a more affordable price tag.

I find the whole 60’s vibe so endearing.
I desperately want to be a 60’s Gucci girl, with my A line leather mini skirts , knee high boots and fluffy [faux] shearling coats, and yes I want all of these in every colour.

I’m currently on the lookout for AW pieces that can give me that Gucci girl edge, so stay tuned for a ‘get the look’  Gucci post soon!

Catwalk Dupes

There have been some real gems on the catwalks this season, but like most of us I only look to high end designers for inspiration due to the huge price tag that comes with them. Sometimes, though, we get lucky and the high street will release amazing, and affordable, interpretations of what we have seen on the catwalks.

 

Top Ten AW Must Haves!

1. The Pink Coat

Ever sincthat gorgeous pink coat swished down the runways of Celine I have been dreaming of getting one of my own! But at Celine prices I think I’ll be sticking to a high street version, and believe me there are plenty to choose from!


Here’s one of my faves by Red Herring at Debenhams:

2)The Tartan Scarf

After volunteering at the Scottish Fashion Awards I was enthralled by the amount of Tartan that I saw everywhere and it all looked so glamorous, and where better to start than by glamming up such a staple AW piece? But the question is, do you choose green or red?

Here are some great options from Boohoo:

3) Chunky Jewels

Whether it be in the form of earrings or necklaces I love this trend because it is so glamorous and can dress up any outfit, even if it’s a plain white tee or an LBD! These are statement pieces but this doesn’t mean you can’t create a multi-coloured selection! Enjoy and wear them everyday for any occassion!

Here are my top picks from ASOS:

4)The Colourful Fur Gilet

Faux fur is massive this season, especially when presented in bright colours and patterns, but it doesn’t always have to be in the form of big fur coats. As well as a big furry coat (every girl should have one) a pretty furry gilet should also make its way into your collection. Of course it doesn’t have to be brightly coloured, but I personally love the edge a coloured furry vest adds to an outfit. Still not sold? Then take a look at the gorgeous olive green pick from Topshop below.

5)Velvet Leggings

Velvet is a great texture this season and looks especially great in the form of leggings, especially in deep wine shades! The great part is that such deep red tones are always a perfect winter colour and will go with most colours and velvet can be mixed with all kinds of textures; leathers, furs, you name it! And for such a gorgeous, versatile item they are actually very affordable, especially at Boohoo (available in lots of colours so stock up now, girls!).

6) Chunky Chelsea Boots

These have been around a while now but they still look amazing and really transform a pair of jeans, leggings or even a dress! Obviously get yourself  a plain black pair but you should also consider going for a different colour too (think deep greens and reds or even greys, as seen at the Celine show). See below for a great pair from Kurt Geiger (Also available in black, too!)

7) The Skort

From the front? Looks like a mini skirt. From the Back? Looks like a cute pair of shorts. What else is there to say other than it looks great! Available in so many different patterns and colours you have plenty to choose from, but I personally love this emerald green pair from Topshop because they will brighten up any outfit!

8)Midi Rings

These are a really cute take on wearing rings because they are so dainty and pretty compared to the standard big chunky jeweled rings we are used to seeing! I see them as very girly, feminine approach to wearing jewelry.Why not buy a pack of these rings from ASOS and experiment with wearing a few at a time?

9)Fuzzy Jumpers

Great for everyday wear, fuzzy jumpers go with absolutely everything! Mixing them with other textures is a great idea, especially with a leather mini or velvet leggings! I love this hot pink one from Topshop.

10)The Heart Print Blouse

Hearts are the new polka dots, and we have the Burberry Prorsum show to thank after that blouse they sent down the runway!

But at those prices let’s stick to cheaper versions, like this great one from Boohoo! And don’t forget it doesn’t have to be a blouse, you can also incorporate this trend into jumpers, cardigans and even tights!
