Faux in the Snow

18 Oct

Have some faux in the snow this winter with fur! We are spoilt for choice from the high street and just a touch of fur will really enhance your everyday winter look. There are fabulous faux furtippets‘ or add-ons that can be attached to the lapels of any boring winter coat for a bit of added glam! Above are a few of my top picks from the high street and online stores. Gilets are big news again this year and there are a variety of colours and styles available.

I’m a bit obsessed by this deep red fur jacket from ASOS the colour is just amazing and it looks so expensive! The snow leopard print from River Island is another option (you may blend into the scenery in a few months time though), or you could go for  the classic brown chestnut coloured fur coat from H&M. Not into full on fur? Use the little touches such as a scarf, tippet or bag to add some winter lux this season!

Knits and Boots – The Autumn Arrival

8 Aug

The arrival of Autumn for me always means cool winds and crazy sun changing to torrential downpours! I’m actually sitting inside while a monsoon shower has begun and I can barely hear myself think (type)! Autumn suggests a move from shorts and flip-flops to cozy boots and jumpers (sweaters for the stateside readers). I’m really liking ankle/calf boots for this year especially with fur lining and some buckle-detailing, I’m undecided whether to go brown,taupe or black but feel its got to be leather not suede (see earlier note on ‘monsoon’). These chunky knits are so good for autumn/winter as you can wear them over a thin tank or layer them with several tops depending on how cold it is! They can be balanced out by pairing them with skinny jeans or trousers. I’m loving all the Aran sweaters (this first pic burnt orange from ASOS) and cardigans..sadly I can’t wear wool which is a pity considering I’m in Ireland where there is an endless supply it seems. Knitwear (especially really thin knits or really chunky knits) is always top of my shopping list for their versatility in layering and comfort in the cold A/W months!
