The AW16 trend edit

As we say goodbye to the British summer and hello to the coming autumn and winter months, here’s our heads up on this season’s hottest looks in preparation for the Lifestyle @ Telford event this weekend. From silk boudoir to velvet revolution we’ve got your AW16 wardrobe covered at Telford Shopping Centre.

Modern British

This season pay tribute to British style and go back to basics for AW16. From cosy cable knitwear to traditional tweed, the catwalk has taken inspiration from traditional British heritage classics. This season’s style is the perfect blend of sleek and sophistication, whether you max out with a flared trouser or opt for a pair of structured culottes, there’s a style and design to suit all! 

Silk Boudoir

Go full glamour with silk this season, whether it’s a printed shirt or simple slip dress, silk is the ultimate lux wardrobe addition. Perfect for layering why not try a delicate silk pyjama blouse or silk bomber jacket to add a hint of sophisticated edge to your style.

Double Denim

Dare to go double denim this season and rock your favourite denim jacket and jeans. Forget Britney and Justin, this trend is emerging as one of AW16’s hottest styles! Try colour mixing your denim, to keep this statement style in check, sport a light blue shirt tucked into your trusty black jeans – after all if Gigi can do it, so can you!

Velvet Revolution

Luxurious and rich, velvet is the go-to fabric this season! The 90’s trend is back in full force, wear it crushed, coloured, in accessories or even top-to-toe anything goes! Update your wardrobe with a range of très sophisticated essentials in a variety of autumnal hues. Invest in new winter staples including the little black velvet dress or why not show your velvet palette with an elegant trouser suit?

Coats to Capes

Be stylish and stay warm this season and invest in a statement outerwear piece, from classic leather trenches to shearling coats to stylish capes anything goes, and the bigger the better! Oversized and statement jackets are key this season, so opt for something bright and make the right kind of statement during your daily commute!

Thigh-high sole mates

Long boots are a must-have seasonal statement for AW, and best of all they never go out of style! Taking inspiration from the catwalk, this season is all about bold boots so opt for buckle or print styles – all come in a range of finishes this season too, including velvet adding a new and playful dimension to a classic boot!
