7 things you NEED to know for AW16

The thing is, we can’t believe it’s AUGUST! But, while it may seem like the summer is running off quicker than an Olympic athlete, we’ll be the first ones to admit: we’re excited. Excited for dark mornings? Not quite. Excited for a new season to begin? Absolutely! With autumn lurching, our thoughts are turning to our AW16 wardrobe… 


 This season we’ve compiled a wardrobe hit list to help you check off all the important trends every fashion-savvy chick needs to know come September.

Primark

Padded jacket £18

Primark

Parka £20

The padded jacket 

Cosy and chic may seem antithetical, but our new season padded jackets are just that. Coming through in charcoal, black, and navy, we’re also going bold and bright with red. We LOVE this item paired back with joggers and a fresh pair of sneakers.

The parka 

We’re also calling out the parka as your must-have cover-up for cooler temps. We’ve up-specced ours, introducing bold colours and removable imitation fur trims around delightfully cocooning hoods. For those of you looking to go down the classic route, we have got traditional khaki options too!

Primark AW16 Must-Haves

Metallic jumper £8

Primark

Metallic knit bomber jacket £12

 Metallic knitwear

Ladies and gentleman, important news: metallics are here to stay. The latter quarter of the year signals shimmer and shine to the nth degree. From Bowie inspirations, to Studio 54 glam, there’ll be no shortage of metallic embracement. While we transition, keep things a little subtler with one of our gorgeous metallic knits. Available in a huge variety of silhouettes, you can even grab one of the season’s key pieces in metallic knit: the bomber jacket.

Dress £10

Dress £8

Cold-shoulders 

Yes, yes, we have already mentioned the importance of this peek-a-boo detail, but it isn’t going anywhere fast, so get yours while they’re still super hot products! With everything from chic dresses to sleek knitwear and formal shirts getting an attitude overhaul, dabbling in this trend won’t mean compromising on your personal style.

Berry tones 

The berry palette practically screams autumn, and we’re all ears. This deep, autumnal hue sits back with everything from black, to khaki, and even retro mustard shades – perfect for channelling the 70s NYC vibes we’re totes digging for AW16.

Checked shirt £6

Pinafore £10, beanie £2

The checked shirt

Whether you sling it around your waist - grunge style - or wear it simply with jeans, the checked shirt's collegiate look and feel is one of next season's must-owns. Try wearing it underneath your fave pinafore for extra style cred.

Pinafores

And last but not least, the throwback to downtown New York sees preppy faves, like the pinafore, prevailing for the upcoming season too. We adore the layered look, with either the must-have checked shirt, or a super cute knitted cold-shoulder jumper. For extra style brownie points, choose textures of faux leather or suedette.

If this selection of sartorial delights doesn’t sate your shopping desire, get some more inspo below and prepare to slay AW16 from the second the clocks go back.
