ACCESSORIES EDIT - THE 80'S TREND

A/W15, AccessorisingEmma CarrComment

Next up on my AW15 Accessories Edit is the 80’s. Now this isn’t necessarily a decade everyone wants to wear head-to-toe, but with the right accessory you can easily pull it off 2015 style. From polka dots to fishnets, sheer tights are back and a great way to add an 80’s vibe to your outfit. Oversized 80’s-insprired belts and statement earrings are also everywhere this autumn/winter. Alternatively add a pair of metallic stilettos or clutch and you’re sure to bring some 80’s sparkle to whatever you’re wearing.

JIGSAW A-LINE

Last week I was lucky enough to be involved in a photoshoot at the beautiful Jigsaw, King Street store in Manchester. During the shoot I got to take a look at their new A-Line collection and what a treat that was. From beautiful wool culottes to cashmere knits the 40 piece limited-edition collection is full of timeless pieces you’ll have in your wardrobe forever. The luxe fabrics and well cut designs mean we can all have a taste of affordable luxury. 

The mainline collection didn't disappoint either, in particular the outerwear and accessories. From perfectly tailored overcoats to gorgeous faux-fur stoles, Jigsaw is definitely hitting the mark again.

ACCESSORIES EDIT - ANIMAL PRINT

A/W15, AccessorisingEmma CarrComment

Next up on my Accessories Edit is the animal print trend. Personally, I think animal print accessories are a good addition to your wardrobe whatever the season. Head-to-toe black with some leopard print shoes, or a grey t-shirt and jeans with a snake skin belt, are just two of the many ways you can add something special to a simple outfit. From leopard, croc and zebra there are plenty of ways you can add some animal print into your wardrobe and with so much great choice out there right now, this Autumn/Winter is the perfect time to do it.
