Although it feels like it barely passed, AW is upon us again and summer is very nearly over. It’s my favourite time of year for fashion and I’m so excited for the brand new array of coats, boots and evening outfits to hit shop floors this September. I was lucky enough to attend the Autumn Winter 2014 New Look Press Event back in May and am so excited to show you some exclusive pictures of their new collection and key trends for this Autumn/Winter.
The peep toe trend has officially come full circle. From being a trend synonymous with the 1940’s, it has made its way through the designer circle and slipped down in to the high street stores, with New Look taking it under their wing, displaying some lovely peep toe options. The cut out detailing and the buckle make this peep toe boot rather biker-ish, and the simpler sleek mules, reference a SS14 Whistles pair, at a much more affordable price. Both can be easily teamed with skinny jeans and a casual top for a stylish day time outfit.
Similar to the Topshop jumpsuit we have all seen this season, which comes in black, pink and white – New Look have done their own (and hopefully slightly cheaper) version. Again symbolising a classic Whistle’s design from the SS14 season, the jumpsuit is strapless, fitted and with a straight leg. On the back there is also an oval cut out shape, but avoids the no bra dilemma by still keeping a band on the back.
If you fell in love with the 90’s this season, like I definitely did with Iggy Azeala’s Fancy video and Kylie Jenner’s make up, then there is something for you here. This shoe and bag combo screams the 90’s. The low chunky heel and pointy top is something you’ll definitely see on the feet of the women in the films Sliding Doors or American Beauty! And the check detailing of course relating to Iggy’s take on the Clueless outfit.
Just because winter is here, it doesn’t mean you have to throw your pastels away and move to dark reds and purples. By combining some texture, New Look has created the winter pastels. I’m not sure how confident I would be carrying the pink fluffy tote bag just yet, but can see a more stylish person carrying it off perfectly. The suede texture on the shoes and the leather crocodile skin effect on the bag also make this pastel blue a staple winter edition.
Do you have your eye on anything in this collection? I know I do…
