Sweating it Out.

Has the tale-end of hurricane Burtha and the awful weather of the last couple of days got you thinking that summer is over, and that it might be time to pull on something a little warmer?

As much as I love my summer wardrobe I must admit that I get a little bit excited about pulling on a jumper, and just as well really as the statement sweater is most definitely an autumn/winter must-have.

The humble sweater has been given a new lease of life over the past couple of seasons, and AW14 is no different. Looking at the catwalks for inspiration you’ll find an array of colours, designs and shapes. From bold fast food type logos, to camo sequins and eye popping textures, if it’s one thing the sweater is not this season it’s subtle!

The great thing about a statement jumper is how quickly and easily one piece can change up a casual outfit. Team with jeans and a pair of sliders for a cool day look, then before heading out a quick shoe swap, adding a pair of heels, I’d go for a metallic (also big for the autumn season), and you’re ready to rock, looking cool but also comfortable.

Here’s a few of my favourites.

Autumn Winter 14

Have you been shopping recently? If so you may have noticed how the massive sale sections have now dwindled and are neatly tucked into a corner somewhere, and you are now greeted by what is the first hit of Autumn Winter, or better known as ‘Trans’, short for transitional and that odd point in the season where you struggle to stop wearing sandals, refusing to believe summer is soon to be a distant memory!

Yes I know it’s still regularly hitting 24 or 25 degrees, and we’re lucky enough to actually experience a summer this year, but the fashion world have been working on, and hotly anticipating the next season for the last 6 months.

All the September magazines will be out soon, showcasing next seasons’ top trends, all of which are really wearable, but for now here’s a quick overview from moi, and pics courtesy of the catwalk shows as to what is hot for AW14.
