It’s all very well being on trend but it’s even better to be ahead of the trend, right? Every season, Very has a press day to show the new collections to the UK’s best journalists and I always try and go along to get an overview of what’s going to be big next season. I take lots of photos because I know everyone likes to see what’s coming up next and I think you’ll all be pretty surprised (in a good way) by the Autumn / Winter 2014 collection because it’s so diverse.
Some seasons, it’s all about one particular look but what struck me most about the new Love Label, Definitions and Fearne Cotton collections is that there is a mixture of prints and a few different key looks. For example, if you look at the Fearne Cotton collection above you can see Fearne’s signature cute prints and floaty dresses but there is also a very glam black dress with an embellished neckline. Then check out some of the Love Label mannequins below.
This Love Label theme is simple but elegant. My favourite was the coral pink skirt and top worn with a grey faux fur coat. Great for a wedding! A faux fur makes everyone look a million dollars and grey is a less harsh colour than black.
And talking of coats, check out the statement cape below. The collar looks so cosy!
If you prefer a coat that shows off your outfit more, then I spotted two amazing Definitions coats. The white mac is sleeveless so you can wear it with a white fluffy jumper and keep summer going for as long as possible. There’s also a cute black bomber jacket that’s a great alternative to a leather biker jacket. I love a bomber!
In terms of partywear, I spotted a statement gold and pink sequin dress that would be perfect ahead of the Christmas party season. When worn with high heels, you can guarantee it would get everyone’s attention:
The Love Label collection in particular had some very colourful items. There were a couple of jumpsuits that grabbed my attention including a deep purple one with a black lace back and this hot pink number
And finally, I couldn’t help but notice this black Definitions dress as it’s perfect for work and play. I love the cute peephole neckline and I love how it cinches in at the waist, which makes it really flattering:
MTV presenter Lilah Parsons brought a bit of celebrity glamour to the occasion as she did a DJ set at the end of the day. So if you spot some of these outfits on TV, you know where Lilah got them!
What do you like the most? I really cannot decide. All I know is that my shopping list is getting very long!
