2nd September 2019

There’s a chill in the air and the dark nights are creeping in. We’re officially autumnal – pumpkin spice, wear-with-all boots, chunky knits… To celebrate the transition from summer style to fall fashion, I’m breaking down my top ten trending items for AW19. 

#1 Clashing print. A rich colour palette of mustard, blue and green will ease you into the autumn months with the new Blair collection from Savida at Dunnes Stores, Abbey Centre. 

#2 Socks and sandals. Strappy sandals are hot right now. Keep your tootsies toastie with show-stopping socks. The New Look range is lit.   

#3 A simple shirt dress. No one does casual chic like Next. Discover Emma Willis’ latest clothing collection in store at Abbey Centre featuring classic tailored pieces. 

#4 Check-mate. From two-piece suits to grungy checked shirts, Primark is winning. 

#5 Sumptuous cord. Topshop’s slouchy cord jeans are the ultimate go-to brunch pant. Pair with a fitted knit and retro sneakers for Saturday girl cool. 

#6 Dr Martens. Boots, shoes, patent, matte – on trend every season and available at DV8. 

#7 The pleather blazer. Think The Chicago Coat, £59 at Topshop: A chic belted silhouette in 4 slick shades.  

#8 Retro sneakers. Keep it chunky in Skechers D’Lites!

#9 The mini dress. Quiz are killing it this season with wrap, fit and frill minis to tempt, in a versatile animal print. Perfect Fri-yay night get up. Transition to winter with tights + boots. 

#10 Bags of style. Elevate your look with an effortless, elegant handbag a la River Island. 

Anything goes this season. Express your authentic self and remember, confidence is key!
