10 AW16 key pieces to bagsie now
By Caroline Ferry, 15 August 2016
1. Long arm of the law
XXL sleeves are about to be a big deal, thanks to the Vetements AW16 show. Embrace the extra and get ready for cosiness.
2. Yeezy does it
Forget black and white, the new neutrals for next season are rusty hues, tobacco, cinnamon, toffee and brown. Get in on the action via a slinky Mac.
3. Dress up drawer
A little bit vintage (hola, jacquard), a little bit playful with the colourful faux-fur trim. The dressy coat of new-season dreams.
4. All-weather leather
Embroidered and embellished is the gothic romantic take on leather to know now. Plus, this one is perfectly proportioned for petite chicas.
5. Future perfect
This is you, in your elegant ruffle dress, being a boss this autumn. Dress for the job you want, right?
6. Let’s separate
Your new denim skirt looks super fancy, but is actually just the most chill lazy-day go-to. Wear with, honestly, everything.
7. Smart start
The crisp and cool basic to pair with AW16's tweed trousers and cheeky checks.
8. Haute coat
Super-luxe wool and in that 90s grunge check we’re going to be seeing a whole lot of very soon.
9. Frilly and fierce
On paper, sounds wild… flares that are frilly and denim. But, then you see them and, alas, very cool.
10. Silky squad
The bomber jacket for next season is way fancy, satin and padded for extra warmth wins. Ooh la la.
