AW14 Womenswear - The Trends to be Seen in This Season



The post-Summer weather may be cooling down, but our wardrobes are definitely hotting up with our latest Autumn/Winter womenswear arrivals! This season we’re swapping cute cover-ups for attitude packed biker jackets, strappy sandals for killer ankle boots and layering up with cosy knitwear.
Inspired by the key looks from the AW14 catwalks, check out two of our favourite womens trends available to shop right now:

TOUGH LUXE
Clockwise: Firetrap Blackseal Stevie Top (coming soon), Converse High Top Triple Zip Womens Trainers,
Firetrap Blackseal Fur Biker Jacket, Firetrap Quiet Boots

Leather, metal hardware and 90s grunge inspired checks are key ingredients for this trend! PU quilted skirts and dresses, mesh-mixed knitwear and panelled denim make for some seriously edgy wardrobe updates. For a more subtle take on the trend, houndstooth printed dresses and separates are a cool but easy alternative to add a bit of attitude to any look.

*Style Tip! Go for bold, statement pieces. It’s all about confidence!


FUTURE FOLK
Clockwise:Rock & Rags Camel Coat, Rock and Rags Fluffy Jumper, Firetrap Biggy Womens Boots,
Rock & Rags Floral Collar Top, Rock & Rags Dina Denim Skirt,

Bohemian and romantic, Future Folk transcends Summer to Autumn perfectly. Floral prints inject a rich colour palette of rustic, earthy tones into this trans- seasonal collection. Fringed Kimonos, devore swing dresses and delicate lace tops beg for an Indian summer whereas cosy knits and fashion forward coats such as preppy duffels and luxe parkas mean dressing for the cold will be welcomed with relish!

*Style Tip! Use contrasting fabrics for luxe layering.
