FALL in Love with Abbey Centre

3rd September 2021

As Summer (and perpetual lockdown) transitions into Autumn, our wardrobe needs a little refresh.

We’re not ready to give up on our sweats just yet, so we’re keeping comfort key in the the softest, knitted loungewear collections from River Island and Primark.

The cardi reigns supreme – worn as part of a twin set or solo statement. The DV8 knit range is woolly good (sorry).

We’ve all been living in a vacuum and now is your time to shine. The new-wave of going out-out clobber is shimmering in-store. Sequins, beads, on top of sequins and beads, on top of sequins and beads! Check out Quiz for your diamonte fix.

Saturate your vision with colour. We’re seeing a lot of pastel shades incorporated into daring pattern. Look no further than Savida at Dunnes Stores.

Keep suited and booted this Fall 21 with a twist on the classic blazer and chunky boots. Next is our sartorial go to, with River Island boots reigning supreme.

Embrace the outdoors in après-ski inspired pieces. Top off your patterned knits with an eye-catching hat or jaunty head scarf. See Quiz, Dunnes Stores and River Island.

Colder weather is en route, wrap up in a perfect puffa from New Look or embrace the quilted waistcoat trend in Vogue.

Denim is a wardrobe staple every season. A good pair of jeans (fitted to suit you), will provide the perfect foundation for every outfit. Wear:
1. Straight-leg jeans under a layered midi slip dress (over white shirt) – (Check out Next for a crisp white shirt and Quiz for your slip dress of dreams).
2. Pair flares with a tight sweater. DV8 denim is smashing it this season!
3. Dress up light-coloured jeans with a boxy blazer. Look no further than Primark.

Do over old pieces by marrying with new items that bring your wardrobe bang-up-to-date and don’t forget your sturdy undergarments (stockings, pants, a good bra etc. – Bon Marche and Pep&Co)

You’re never fully dressed without a smile. Your wellbeing should be at the core of every outfit choice. Wear what makes you feel and look good!
