Love, Want, Need: AW16!

With last week being one of the only weeks we had (and sadly are expected to have) of sun and extreme heat (for England anyway) I’m afraid to say that it may just be about time to start preparing for Autumn and Winter. But the cold months ahead don’t have to create negativity in your head but instead a positive attitude and excitement over ‘WHAT WILL I WEAR’ this Autumn and Winter 16! Well we have put together three key pieces for you men and women that are indecisive over what will be your staple pieces next season.

Men: 

hat

This Stone Island beanie is of course one of our tops picks and an obvious winter must if you want to keep your head nice and warm when the weather is ice cold. The wool knit is the ideal material for all your accessories and knits this winter. Stone Island are renowned for creating pieces that are wearable every day pieces and also super casual and the grey and black colour scheme mean it will go with just about anything and everything. A subtle logo is nice to have to create an extra something on what could just be a winter beanie.

jacket

After that jacket that will last forever, then turn to Belstaff for a jacket that will remain in your wardrobe for years to come, love it and live in it this winter as the black is a colour you really can’t go wrong with. The water repellent material makes it even more of a ‘must have’ jacket, especially in England when rain is just something we have to deal with a lot. This brand is worn by the likes of David Beckham, Oliver Cheshire and Gerald Butler so do not worry you are in safe hands with this brand the celebrities love.

shoes

H By Hudson once again bring us the popular ‘Tamper Suede’ Boots and this time in brown. Edge away from a leather boot and go for something you wouldn’t usually go for with the suede style. This is definitely a more casual boot and will perfect your weekend look to the T.

Women: 

hat

The ‘Cooney’ Ted Baker hat is the brand new accessory piece that we just can’t get enough off. The perfect item for when you feel your outfit is looking a bit simple and you need something to make it stand out. What better colour for Autumn and Winter than Oxblood; it makes us want the cold months already! Complete with the classic Ted Baker miniature cutesy bow for that girly touch.

jacket

If there is one item you have to splurge on; an item that will last a lifetime, an item that will forever remain close to your heart, then it’s this Belstaff ‘Boulder Blouson’ aviator style shearling jacket. The traditional aviator has a mix of old and new in it, with the fur collar creating an element of class and of course extra warmth this winter. This is definitely the ‘It’ jacket of 2016!

bag

Calvin Klein gives us the dream backpack this AW16, with tassel and contrasting coloured detailing there’s no denying how much we love this bag. Ditch your usual style of bag and opt for the backpack for extra style, and room as this bag will hold all your ‘much needed’ throw in pieces.
