As I reached for my cardigan this morning, I thought that it was the perfect time to share New Look's Autumn/Winter15 collection. I knew that the 70s would have a big influence this season, so was really excited to see New Looks take on it and see what else they were offering. The first thing that really caught my eye was the jewellery, feather earrings, chunky bracelets and tassel necklaces yes please.
I love more is more, but there were also some more minimal structured pieces for anyone who likes to keep that clean aesthetic. There was a fresh take on classic 70s detail, in black and white monochrome pieces. A simple LBD with eyelets down the arm, is the new classic. My mind drifts on how many ways I could style it, but than I spot a black faux fur jacket and ask myself which jacket will I have to ditch to make room for this beauty.
Think Jackie Brown, Charles Angels and Stevie Nicks hanging at your local coffee shop (I wish) this collection is a strong mix of sassy meets everyday. It's not about being sexy, it's about confident control and this is why the 60s and 70s were a great time for women's fashion. I love the mix of glitzy knits, with pleather mini skirts and matching trench coat I think I may need this so I can pretend I'm a secret agent while doing the school run.
It's a subtle slap of femme fatale and I honestly can't get enough. It's so easy to get retro wrong, for it to look more costume than clothing, and New Look have a achieved a great collection that can see pieces mixed in with the modern wardrobe. There were killer platforms that made my eyes water, I can't do massive heels but if you can your going to be happy with these night fever style beauties. There were some platform boots, that I may have to brave but plenty of flats if heels are not an option. This A/W collection has a lot to offer, as someone who is forever hunting vintage pieces it's great to be able to add to them from the high-street as well. This collection has already starting rolling out in stores.
