SHOP AW16 IN THE SUMMER SALES

Style, Fashion, AW16, Sale ShoppingEmma CarrComment

The summer sales are now in full swing and with prices still to be reduced by up to 70% there are some great savings to be made. As I mentioned in my Savvy Sale Shopping blog, it’s always good to keep an eye out for the next seasons big trends. I realise it might be hard to think about what you’ll be wearing in autumn/winter when we haven’t even had a summer yet, but if you shop smart you can grab yourself some of the key trends for AW16 now. So with that in mind, here are three of my favourite AW16 trends to look out for in the sales.

THE MAC

With everyone from Burberry to Celine featuring them in their AW16 collections, the mac is set to be the coat trend of autumn/winter16. There are so many great ones in the summer sales, I could have listed about twenty of them. Make sure to check out Zara, Mango and ASOS if this is a trend you want to buy into.

LEOPARD PRINT

Leopard print is going to be THE print of autumn/winter 16. Personally leopard print is always on trend for me, so if like me you wear lots of it, then the sales are always a good time to invest.

RUFFLES

Ruffles have been around for a couple of seasons now and are set to stay for AW16. Admittedly they are going to be heavier for winter (think knits and leather) but I still think it's worth looking out for lighter weight versions in the sales if you like this trend.
