‘This autumn is all about investing in beautifully pared down wardrobe essentials that will form the building blocks of the season’s key looks. We concentrated on creating beautifully crafted pieces that have longevity and versatility…you will love, cherish and wear them for years to come!’ Gemma Metheringham
At Karen Millen we have cleverly covered off all your essential purchases and here is our ultimate check-list for your must-have buys to carry you into the new season with style!
Here are five of our top ten wardrobe updates for AW10, come back on Friday to see the remaining five hot picks….
1) The New Neutrals
The season’s main colour statement is delicious tones of buttery camels, champagnes and toffee neutrals…
Invest in a sumptuous cover-up such as a luxurious stone cape coat (coming soon!), get our limited edition hot off the press camel cape or opt for a versatile wardrobe essential knit roll neck or cardigan.
2) Volume Cocoon Shapes
Experiment with fashion’s key shape for autumn…
The key to working this look is to layer and temper the new volume by contrasting with razor-sharp tailored city shorts or super-skinny jeans and over the knee boots (launching this week!).
3) Chic Little Black Dress
This season with the prominence of ladylike dressing and the added twist of new minimalism influencing everything we wear there has never been a better time to invest in the little black dress….
Every girl should have at least one and they are the perfect way to buy into a multitude of fashion trends from draped to sporty and from military to ladylike. You can dress them down with the addition of a casual military bag or off set a demure dress with a studded pair of frivolous peep toe sandals and a silver studded clutch bag.
4) The Perfectly Tailored Trouser
This is the season to invest in a perfectly tailored trouser and there is a shape to suit everyone…
You need to try them all on and choose the one for you, from the 70’s wide leg to the peg trouser.
5) Something Red Hot
Add a splash of bright tomato red….
The final 5 will be published on Friday… what have you got your eye on this season?
