A/W 2103 - Style in View

We have only just had a heat wave and a flurry of days at the beach and BBQs but I'm already thinking about AW13 fashion.With the summer sales coming to an end, the high street shops are starting to get in their first few autumnal items. Here's my guide to the key trends next season and items to look out for


Cute camo
Camoflage print is set to be big next season but in a much more feminine way than we have preeviously seen. Christopher Kane showed the look on the catwalk but Whistles have got some gorgeous items in this print and they have a lovely camo maxi skirt in the sale so why not pick up next seasons trend at a bargain price.


Dusky pinks
Lady-like, dusky pink items are going to be all over the high street soon and Reiss and Whistles already have some lovely dresses in these shades. Head to Primark or Debenhams for coats in this colour at a fraction of the designer price. Both stores have released press images of some delicate and pretty coats in this colour.


Whistles AW 13


Punk/ 60s
This is the look I'm most excited about. Moschino, Vivienne Westwood and Saint Laurent all channeled this vibe in their shows. 90s grunge was a big trend this Summer so you can carryover these items and mix them up with some loafers for a 60s look or some studded boots for a more punk look. Primark have some gorgeous items from this trend and Dorothy Perkins already have some shift dresses with leopard print collar detailing. I'm going to be aiming for a Courtney Love/Siouxsie Sioux/Twiggy mash up look this A/W.


I tried out the new Get The Look feature on the fashion website Style In View to create a look/board of some of my favourite 60's inspired items for next season. Style in view lets bookmark your favourite items and create your own inspirational look book to store your favourite pieces and outfit ideas. Style In View enables you to pick out your next wardrobe items all on one website as it hosts items from Topshop, New Look and Boohoo etc You can use it to compare similar products from different brands and choose which one you like best, very handy!

My look is below but if you click on the widget you can see all the other items I chose.
