I’m back with another round up of some of the top trends for this season, and this time it’s all about the slip dress. Worn alone, or over a t-shirt, the slip dress was seen at both Louis Vuitton and Valentino and is probably one of the more versatile of trends. Wear the River Island check to work or the autumnal floral Topshop version at the weekend. But it’s at night where the slip dress really comes into its own. Whether you want to try a Little Black (Slip) Dress, give a nod to Baby Spice or embrace your inner Silver Surfer , there is something for you. I particularly love this metallic cold-shoulder slip dress from River Island, which cleverly hides and slims the top of your arms.
A bit toastier than a slip dress, Puffer Jackets were also featured on the catwalks, with Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney and Vivienne Westwood all wearing them over evening wear. Before I started looking for Puffer Jackets I was a bit unsure of this trend, thinking of big ugly caterpillar type coats, but as always, the high street seem to have come up with some flattering interpretations. Obviously there are the traditional versions, like this beige one from Mango or black Zara option, but there are also those with a twist. I really love the ASOS bomber and pink duster style from Topshop, but New Look win the race for the most flattering look. With a waist belt to give you some shape and a flattering snood neck, this is sure to keep you snug in style. We all know which one I’ll be getting.
Have you got a favourite trend, or are you going to be brave and wear both at once?
