My Style Picks For AW17

I don't know about anyone else but the changing of the seasons makes me hate all of the clothes in my wardrobe for at least a few weeks and I have an insatiable need to buy clothes, buy more clothes and keep buying clothes until my bank account is empty. However, new season collections are always my favourite and I love filling up my house with brand new outfits and although I am loathed to say goodbye to holidays and nice(ish) weather for now, I can't wait to get cosied up in the AW17 collections. I've put together some of my AW essentials for the coming months as well as some of my favourite picks from the good ol' high street too.


Florals, for Autumn? Groundbreaking. I love a good floral dress but not the typical, very feminine style that we all automatically think of when we hear the term "floral dress". I'm into the grungy, wear with boots, casual type dress and that's especially true for this time of year. The one I've featured here is from Nasty Gal and I just absolutely love the navy print on it as it's quite understated but so pretty and I think it'll look amazing teamed with a pair of nude boots. Plus, the ruffles on the sleeves are right on trend for the coming season and are great if you're not too sure about going all-out ruffly. Warehouse are another high street brand that have some amazing floral dresses in right now and I always find that for their price point, Warehouse's dresses and their clothes in general are of such good quality, they're real investment pieces for your wardrobe (I'm desperate for this carnation dress). I've put together a few of my fav floral dresses from all over the 'net together below - just click on them to be taken to the product page!


If you'd had a little bit of a nosey in the shops recently, you'll have undoubtedly noticed the huge amount of red clothing that has made it's way onto the rails and I'll admit, I didn't used to be the biggest fan of red. However, it's truly won me over and I had to invest in this pair of simply beautiful red patent boots from ZARA. The footwear in ZARA at the minute is incredible and the prices? Well, ZARA has shocked me with how good it is. These boots cost just under thirty quid, which was a bloody lovely surprise considering I was expecting them to be around 80! Laaaaavly when that happens, isn't it?! It's not just reds that I'm loving at the minute either but also burnt oranges and those lovely warm Autumnal tones, yellows and the like. I know this isn't strictly style related but Lord & Berry are celebrating their 20th birthday with a beautiful 20 in fashion set including a gorgeous yellow eyeshadow, perfect for A/W. I've been experimenting with the colours and teamed with a little bit of gold and a dark brown eyeliner, it creates a beautiful AW make-up look. I've also rounded up my fav red pieces from the shops below so you can hopefully be inspired by the red too!


And finally, we have the ruffles. I recently got a really cool white shirt from Nasty Gal with open sleeves with ruffles all the way down and it just made me fall in love with the AW favourite. Ruffles are definitely something I'm always drawn towards at this time of year and last year, my favourite piece was a white Victorian style blouse with ruffles all the way down so I don't see this changing any time soon. Yes, I know that ruffles have just been a Spring Summer trend but for me, they're more of a winter thang and to be honest, even though I love new clothes, I don't follow trends to the tee and I'm more likely to just wear whatever the hell I want. I love to wear ruffled shirts with skinny jeans, some statement boots and a slash of winged eyeliner and that's probably one of my favourite AW looks ever.
