The St David's AW15 Trend Report

By Gem - 08:30:00

AW15 is set to be a season to remember, and I've teamed up with the guys at St David’s Shopping Centre in Cardiff which is my usual shopping haunt to give you a breakdown of the top trends and how you can achieve the look.

Bohemia is back! The fashion week catwalks, and now the rails, are teaming with fringes, A-line miniskirts, suede and a range of folksy prints.
Get the look: purchase some key pieces that will work with your existing wardrobe. A suede skirt is a great place to start.
Dress: M&S £49.50 - Skirt: New Look £49.99 - Cardigan: Primark £14 - Boots: Dune £169
A hint of gothic style will win you extra trend points this season! Bow collars, lace and a deep berry lipstick should do the trick.
Get the look: drama is key for this look, so by choosing a statement piece, such as a jacket or laced blouse, paired with a strong lip, the look can easily be achieved.

Dress: Debenhams £rk  - Lipstick: M&S £10- Blouse: Primakr £10- Dress: M&S £65
Crimson, Scarlet, Pillar-box. Whatever shade you choose, red is in abundance this season. A head to toe red ensemble will ensure you stand out from the crowd
Get the look: remember to keep it simple. Choose a key item for your wardrobe, such as a dress or coat, and wear it with pride.

Jumpsuit: Wallis £45 - Boots: New Look £44.99 - Dress: John Lewis £69 - Skirt: Primark £8
It’s all about the textures this season. Wherever you turn, your AW outerwear will be adorned with faux fur and other tactile fabrics.
Get the look: pick a gorgeous jacket or coat that will take you through the colder months. Fur, sheepskin and shearling textures will keep you warm and chic!
Coat: M&S £95 - Scarf: Accessorize £32- Gilet: New Look £24.99 - Boots: Primark £15

It's definitely time to get the 100 denier tights out and swap the coral lipstick for a deep berry tone. What A/W items have you treated yourself to? I've dug out a trusty old black lace dress and my winter boots but I desparately need a smart new winter coat.

I'm excited to be taking over the St David's Instagram account this week so please head over there and say hello so it's a bit less scary for me. I've not done anything like this before, eeeek!

  1. Love the burgundy boots and the patchwork skirt it gives off a perfect boho vibe!

  2. I like the Victorian look, especially as I like lace. Don't think the 70's look is for me though :)
