All the leaves are brown

This outfit is the first of many Autumn/Winter outfit posts – which I couldn’t be happier about as I love winter clothesmore than any other season! (Probably because Ireland is always so cold!) I like the way different pieces can be layered in so many different ways in order to create a more interesting look and I generally prefer the clothes that Autumn/Winter collections have to offer. This outfit isn’t about layering though – it is simple and classic. I paired black Urban Outfitters jeans with a studded Zara blouse and a H&M military style jacket. My favourite thing about this outfit however, is the accessories – black heeled Bertie boots, black Mulberry bag and Casio watch. A simple outfit to begin my Autumn/Winter wardrobe! Hope you like it!

Fall for Accessories 2012

29 Aug

Autumn\Winter is upon us once again. The falling leaves and shorter nights marks the end of short shorts, bare legs, sun hats and the beginning of the need for a wardrobe transformation. The best way to update your wardrobe without buying a whole new one, is by updating the old and making it NEW! How to do this?? ACCESSORIES! These little gems are the easiest and most purse friendly way to create Autumn/Winter looks from last seasons left-overs. I have created my very own capsule collection of  Autumn/Winter 2012 MUST-HAVE accessories which are ALL available in Dundrum Town Centre now. I hope you will be as INSPIRED as I was, by the amazing accessories that DTC has to offer this season.

The world of accessories is vast – I have searched Dundrum Town Centre to find four categories of the ULTIMATE Autumn/Winter 2012 accessories – THE BAG, THE BELT, THE SCARF, THE STATEMENT NECKLACE. These four wardrobe staples will transform summer pieces and incorporate Autumn/Winter 2012 trends into everyday wear, without blowing the budget. Here are my picks, which can ALL be found in Dundrum Town Centre in the following stores:  Zara, Topshop, Accessorize, River Island, Massimo Dutti, Urban Outfitters.

Embellishments on handbags are a huge trend for Autumn/Winter 2012. Studs, faux fur, embroidary can all be seen on the Highstreet. This red leather studded ZARA bag is on trend, stylish and will brighten up any Winter outfit.

 

 

I believe that Statement Necklaces are an absolute must-have accessory for Autumn/Winter 2012. They add sparkle, glamour and character to any outfit and instantly update last season’s pieces.

 

 

 

 

Scarves are the perfect addition to any wardrobe as there are so many to choose from, especially in Dundrum Town Centre. Scarves can be thrown on with any ensemble and instantly add an element of interest and quirkiness. They come in all shapes, colors and patterns, so there is definitely one to suit every fashionista.

 

 

The addition of a fabulous belt is another way to update last season’s pieces and ensure that they are on trend for Autumn/Winter 2012. For the more daring fashionista, the harness belt transforms any outift and is bang on trend. For a more subtle style update, opt for an embellished waist belt or a skinny leather belt which will also do the trick!

 

 

As you can see from the inspiration above, Dundrum Town Centre has a huge array of AMAZING accessories which will update your wardrobe and carry you right through Autumn/Winter 2012. Below are photographs of a slection of my own personal wardrobe updates. I have used accessories including a scarf, bag, necklaces, tights and belts to update last seasons looks and make them wearable and on trend for Autumn/Winter 2012. ENJOY!

    

Hopefully my pick of THE must-have Autumn/Winter 2012 accessories has inspired you to visit Dundrum Town Centre to update and transform your wardrobe and make it on trend for the season approaching. HAPPY SHOPPING! Hannah Xo
