Watching the runways can often leave you feeling a little overwhelmed with all of the new pieces that you could be wearing next season, and even after the key trends have been deciphered, it’s still quite the chore just deciding which ones are worth trying. So, we’re going to make it easier for you and tell you the five key items that you need to have in your wardrobe this season.
1. Over-the-Knee Boots
Now, the runways have proved that opting for a pair of over-the-knee boots no longer means that you're channeling Pretty Woman, and they really can transform an outfit. Get that Kate Moss boho vibe by wearing over a pair of jeans, or even team them with a dress to add a rocky feel. ALDO’s Mercados are great for just £140.
2. Leather Trousers
Now there’s nothing worse than a pair of camel toe-inducing wet look leggings, but a pair of chic leather trousers are quite the opposite. They’re key for edging up your look, or if you want to channel one of the runway's trends, why not team them with a crop roll top? Invest in Warehouse’s leather bikes trousers for £150.
3. The Tartan Shirt
Tartan has been tipped as one of the biggest stories for this season, and we can already see it dominating the high street stores. Opt for a classic tartan shirt which can be worn casually with jeans, or with a pair of trusty leather trousers if you fancy a Nineties soft punk look. New Look has plenty to choose from such as this red and blue check shirt for £19.99.
4. The Oversized Pink Coat
There’s only one way to wear your coat this season, and that’s oversized. Opt for a pink tone, and you really couldn’t be any more on trend this season. M&S has a lovely oversized duster coat for £85.
5. Tapestry Jumper
It’s time to stash away your summery florals and opt for vintage feeling tapestry instead. Why not try out a tapestry jumper? Go dark floral with a crisp white shirt underneath and throw on a statement necklace for ultimate style credentials.Try out NW3 by Hobbs' tapestry jumper in french navy for £89.
