If you are a regular reader of Mode Madeleine, you'll probably know I am rather partial to a little (or a lot, as the case may be!) of River Island newness! Each time the high street giant launched a new collection, I simply fall in love with the majority of it, add about 1048397307 pieces to my virtual basket (which sadly never quite makes it to the checkout) I then proceed to feel the need to tell you all about my favourite pieces. This is a regular occurrence when it comes to one of my top 5 high street chains - if you don't believe me you can see another of my previous posts gushing about my River Island new season favourites here.
It seems as we transition into the Autumn/ Winter months, the Seventies trend will remain prevalent, however with a slightly more glam feel. Denim is also going no where with denim culottes set to be the next big thing since the kick flare and bell bottoms took off last season - in fact, I have just ordered myself this very pair, which I am very excited about receiving and hoping to debut them over London Fashion Week next month. Colour palettes remain neutral with camel and tan still strong contenders in the style stakes, but with the introduction of luxurious navy, deep burgundy and oxblood, and emerald greens to inject some colour.
I am loving these suede navy pointed toe boots - over the last few months I have found myself being quite drawn to navy, and I don't tend to like mixing it with black so I'm in need of some suitable footwear to accompany my navy pieces - these beauties could well be the missing part of the puzzle. An old favourite among many bloggers is leopard print, which is set to be out in full force again, look out for lots of snake/reptile prints on footwear and handbags - it's already pretty popular especially among bloggers, but I think it's really going to take off come the colder months. Lace up tops and dresses have made an appearance this summer in the form of floaty, gypsy boho styles and have proved a big hit so bear this in mind for your A/W wardrobe update and look for jumpers and warmer tops and dresses which feature this detailing. Suede and leather are usually extremely popular during A/W, but suede especially has been huge this Summer - don't throw out those suede skirts just yet as they're sticking around for the cold - you may just have to stick a pair of tights underneath soon (how depressing is that!?) I haven't picked anything out for this edit, but the Sixties are going to be huge again this season - think cute shift and pinafore dresses, mini skirt and boxy jacket co-ords and plenty of winged eyeliner to channel that inner Bardot!
