AW16 Filming 29/09/2016 – Posted in: Fashion Styling, Intu Lakeside

Last Thursday I was asked by the team at Intu Digital to film a short video for their website, all about my favourite thing….FASHION! As it is now heading into Autumn/Winter we all need some help with finding some key pieces to get you through this cold season! The idea behind the video was to showcase our newly located Personal Stylist Lounge and for the viewers to find out the top trends for AW16 and where to buy them!

Without giving too much away we spoke in the lounge about the service we run at Lakeside and all about the trends for the upcoming seasons….there are some great choices!!! During the video we will be showcasing these trends on mannequins and live models discussing with our viewers how you can wear these looks for your particular body shape! Understanding your shape helps in a big way when shopping and can really define what styles of fashion you can pull off, why bother with a trend when it doesn’t suit you JUST because it is popular?!

Take a look below at the top trends for autumn/winter below, but unfortunately that is all we can share with you, keep your eyes peeled for the ‘AW16 Fashion’ video filmed by Intu digital COMING SOON!

1-Velvet Dreams: During the colder months we want garments that are rich, warm and comfortable, and velvet is most certainly a fabric that ticks all these boxes. Velvet is a luxe material, which is probably why some designers have been inspired by the Baroque trend and styled it with gems, big stone earrings and embroidery.

2- Midnight Sparkle: Shine bright like a diamond this season in this show stopping trend which is not only reserved for the festive season!

3- Purple Reign: Purple has taken the crown as the reigning colour of the season. From soft lilac to rich plum and even striking magenta, it’s one of the most versatile, varied colours in the spectrum and suits literally every and any skin tone.

4- Animal Print: You can make it your own by mixing up different prints! This trend must be worn with confidence but with a hint of sass. If your personality is a little more demure than perhaps a subtle hint of the trend to accessorise you outfit is the way to go.

5- Heritage: Think country, tartan and checks. This trend is all about embracing your inner country chick whilst wrapping up for the cold nights ahead. Layering is a key aspect of the trend, say hello to trilby’s, oversized scarfs and jumper upon jumper!
