Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that some trends seem to be reappearing this year? A/W 12 is coming at us thick and heavy with at least two recurring trends. Gothic is set to make another appearance this year with retailers such as Boohoo and Asos already stocking up on leathers, deep velvets and glossy black beads. I'm not complaining it's a trend I always love to see calling round again, takes me right back to my teenage years and I still have bits and pieces from then that I can work back into my wardrobe!
The other trend I've noticed coming around again is Heritage. Last year saw us flock to cape style coats, rusts and coppers with statement mustards and tweed. Last year saw the beginning of my love affair with Of The Manor style wear. Skinnies tucked into tan boots, tweed jackets, high collared blouses that you really could keep forever, I just couldn't get enough. However when this trend hit last year I wasn't as confident in myself or my own personal style to consider adapting to a trend in the slightest. I'm much more experimental with my style now and I'm itching to get stuck into finding some forever pieces this A/W.
Sticking with the Heritage theme and because it's quite cold where I am, I thought I'd bring you my current Heritage favourites on offer at www.Asos.com
First up we have the staple Heritage Blazer, a must in any Horse & Country type shoot ;) Is Horse & Country an actual magazine even? Anyway!
Next we have the Mango Coated Zip Ankle Skinny Jean in Oxblood A great pair of rust / red coloured jeans will be easily paired with anything.
For example a pair of calf high tan boots and this Peplum Top in Textured Wool
And because I really cannot get enough of that beautiful, rich mustard shade,
this Sessun Wool Woven Tea Dress is just jumping off the screen at me.
Or, if you really want to go all out in Heritage? How about this amazing NW3 Horse Print Dress
I'm actually so incredibly glad to be including another Peplum top here. I've never been so glad to see a statement piece like a peplum top stick around. I still haven't got myself one and this
Asos Enchanted Forest Print one is beautiful! I'm thinking the colours have a slight heritage theme, I can see it dressed with bottle green skinnies or the ox blood ones above.
Finally, and most importantly in my opinion. A good chunky knit Arran Cardigan is an absolute must! I grew up with Arran knits and have really fond associations with wearing that particular knit so I'm excited to maybe welcome some back into my wardrobe.
Perfect for cosy nights by the fire don't you think?
Will you be delving into your Heritage this A/W?
