A/W '12 Must Haves

Hi everyone!

With more than half of Autumn almost over, I decided to dedicate today's post to Autumn/Winter must have pieces.




Military Jacket/Parka
With the military trend so in, a camouflage military jacket or an army green parka are a must have item in my A/W wardrobe. I love the fact that these jackets can have a manly or feminine feel to them according to certain small details. I personally like men-inspired vintage camouflage military jackets. However, if you prefer more feminine clothes, a peplum military jacket or a parka with leather sleeves will do the trick for you.  

Chunky Necklaces
The chunky necklace trend has been spotted everywhere - on the runways, on TV shows... - and I am in love with it, simply because it can make an outfit stand out due to its statement nature. It can be worn with a buttoned shirt, with a plain t-shirt, and even with a going out dress to transform an otherwise boring outfit. The only thing that one has to keep in mind is to keep the rest of the outfit simple, and let the necklace do the talking.

Hats/Beanies
Hats and beanies are a great way to dress down an outfit in my opinion, and they can cover up our bad hair days. Super! They tend to be quite masculine, though, so one has to make sure that the rest of the outfit is not so manly. 

Leather Jacket
Leather is another prominent trend this season, but my must have piece is definitely a leather jacket. What's there not to love about a leather jacket? Even if a black leather jacket is quite boring for your tastes, there are always other styles, such as studded leather jackets, fringed leather jackets, or even peplum leather jackets.

Tartan Scarves
A scarf is a must have piece in these cold months of the year. So why not do it the fashionable way? Tartan scarves complete and brighten up a simple outfit. Everyone seems to be wearing them, so I guess it is a loved trend. I know I love tartan prints!  

Chelsea Boots
Chelsea boots. Who doesn't love chelsea boots? What is mostly exciting is that designers have designed these shoes in a wide array of styles - from heeled chelsea boots, to wellies, to leather chelsea boots - so rest assured that everyone will find a favourite style. Bang on trend while keeping your feet warm - sold

Oxblood Pants
Oxblood has been the hottest colour of this season, and it looks great on all skin tones. I prefer to wear trousers in autumn and winter rather than skirts, so an oxblood pants is a must have item. Oxblood pants can be dressed up or down to suit different occasions. However, if you want to be super stylish, choose a leather oxblood pants. 


Which are your A/W must have items?
