The Super Cardigan

For a few seasons the cardigan has been overlooked by sweatshirts and leather jackets but now they are back in all shapes and sizes. But it’s the coatigan that is reaching new lengths this season from knee length to midi duster like hemlines. Oversized cardigans are such a great versatile look you would be crazy not to try it.

There is nothing like an oversized cardiagan or a coatigan to keep you warm.   A cardigan is a style you throw on without much thought, a go to when the weather turns for the worst.   If you haven’t already got one a long oversized cardigan is the ideal must have for your wardrobe this Autumn.

plum2

As we head towards autumn and watch the seasonal colours change around us.   I thought I would bring your attention to a colour that I have been admiring. The colour purple in all its hues is definitely on trend for Autumn 17.  Many of the shops are stocked with this colour already. From dark plum, violet right through to mauve.

I have to say I am pleased to see so much plum around as it is such a beautiful deep and rich a colour. Luckily it is in my colour pallet and there will be lots in my wardroble this season. I think it is a great black replacement and looks fabulous with splashes of warm bright colours e.g. orange or lime.

Remember to consider which purple best suits your colouring when you are choosing a garment.

This time of year we all start to think about what we need for our winter wardrobes. The shops are slowly stocking up with new seasonal items and the choice is endless. One of the most important items on your list should be a coat.

The Autumn/Winter 2014 catwalks were full of oversized coats in hues of blues, pinks and reds. And the high street have followed suit. If you are going to buy a statement coat this season, this is the coat. If you have a well defined waist wear it with a belt. Otherwise, wear it long and loose over jeans and ankle boots for an easy chic look.  Other key looks were capes, chunky faux-furs, shearing coats or coats and jackets with a shearing collar

 A coat is one of the key pieces of  a winter wardrobe.  You want it to look great and keep you warm right through until the spring. Coats that are on trend but poor in quality can start to look shabby and shapeless after a few months. I would definitely recommend purchasing a good quality coat.  If you are on a budget save up and choose carefully.
