With this low down on how to update your wardrobe for Autumn Winter you can make a few simple changes and create a whole new look without breaking the bank.
Yes, lots of clothes has zips. But think outside the box – zips and detailing as well as function is the order of the day for AW14. There are lots of options in biker jackets, from leather to jacquard plus detailing on evening dresses and accessories – take your pick.
Fringe was certainly all over the AW14 catwalks. But use it sparingly to work into your outfit without looking like you’ve just walked out of the haberdashery department. A necklace or detail on the hem of a blouse is the perfect way of introducing fringe to your existing wardrobe for the new season.
Soooo easy to add into your wardrobe – and in spite of what you may think, is less Bet Lynch and more Parisian chic. Used in your outfit in a sheer shirt, slim scarf or just a touch of detailing in your handbag could be just what your outfit needs to a little….grrr.
We first saw painterly for SS14, and this is continuing into the new season collections. Less girly and easier to wear than florals, add this more abstract print to your look in a kimono-style jacket or soft scarf will instantly bring your wardrobe up to date.
What’s your slogan? With the technology available now, it is easier to create garments with your own slogan – or, if you have the tools and the willing, upcycle something your already own a la “This Old Thing” with the rather amazing Dawn O’Porter. If restyling is not really you, there are plenty of high street and designer options to choose from.
