What to wear now: trans-seasonal looks

Galway Advertiser, August 09, 2012.

It is always exciting to see the new collections arriving in the shops, especially when they boast interesting and exquisite trends and silhouettes. What better time than now to update your wardrobe with some key pieces that you can wear now and which will see you through the autumn and winter.

Opulent patterns abound in the autumn collections, with none more fabulous than the romantic 19th century-inspired brocade luxurious fabrics. Work this look into your wardrobe with this River Island skirt with brocade crafted floral detail. This elegant tulip skirt is one of my favourite ways to work the trend. Style this sophisticated piece with a simple colour T-shirt tucked in, and in the autumn pair it with cream blouse, leather biker jacket, and ornate drop earrings for unrivalled glamour. A light knitted jumper is equally edgy and stylish for that look.

Texture is a favourite feature of next season, and what better way to introduce it into your wardrobe with the cable-knit sweater. The label Goat at Les Jumelles has this versatile and elegant cream sweater. Team it with this playful and feminine flared skirt and a pair of summer sandals, or wear your jumper as part of the ultimate urban uniform, with skinny jeans and ankle boots.

Bring your work wardrobe into another level with this 1960s-inspired bold orange-red dress from Vero Moda. Bold colours are always a statement, but this number will bring an effortless and unexpected edge to your wardrobe. This bold block-colour piece is the perfect canvas for pattern-popping accessories. Team yours with printed sandals and a bright woven bag for a high-impact finish, or wow at a party by pairing it with nude sandals. In the cooler months offset the standout hue with black tights and boots, completing your look with a stack of bracelets.
