NWB EDITS :AUTUMN/FALL WARDROBE STAPLES

NWB presents key pieces and trends that every fashionista needs in their wardrobe this Autumn/Winter. Warning: you will be lusting over these items after you read this post!

1. THE STUDDED LEATHER JACKET

Nicole Scherzinger

This seasons Leather Jacket is adorned with studs, spikes and embellishments. Last Autumn/ Winter it was all about the classic biker leather jacket. However, this season’s Leather jacket is much more dramatic. So the more detail on your leather jacket the better. Nicole Scherzinger was spotted in this stunning studded leather jacket during the X Factor auditions which is perfect example of how to wear this trend.

2. THE PRINTED SHIRT

Florence Welch

 Floerence Welch is bang on trend with this ensemble. She layers this season’s printed shirt (which should ideally be buttoned up to the top because the collared effect is so Rita Ora- HOT RIGHT NOW!) with matching trousers which is a key styling tip as seen at LFW at Holly Fulton’s show. If your not feeling brave as our Florence you could try pairing your printed shirt with a more basic pair of tailored trousers or a pair of quirky denims.

3. THE PEPLUM BLOUSE

Kim Kardashian

Even if you haven’t been paying atttention to the trends this season you would have to  be blind to not know that the Peplum is a must have wardrobe staple. It is everywhere. The peplum is probably one of the most accesible trends at the momment because it can be found in almost every major highstreet as well as at luxury designer boutiques. With it’s skirt-like accent at the waist the Peplum is such a flattering piece for all body types.

4. THE STATEMENT NECKLACE

Olivia Palermo

The Statement Necklace is an accessory that every fashionista should be rocking this season. It can be layered under collared shirts or used to dress up more casual pieces during the day. At night the statement necklace is the focus of your outfit so all other accessories should remain minimal.

5. THE SKATER SKIRT

Rita Ora

The Skater Skirt was a huge trend last Autumn/ Winter and it is back with a vengeance this season. This is a really feminine and easy piece to wear as it can be paired with blouses, t shirts and even a jumper (if layered correctly). This is definitely an investment piece because its so versatile and can be easily styled to achieve a variety of different looks.

6. THE STUDDED BOOT

Emma Roberts

The Studded Boot is the perfect shoe to add an edge and excitement to your out of the office wardrobe. Emma Roberts (above) is wearing a pair designed by Chloé but a similar pair can be found in highstreet shops such as Topshop and New Look.

1. BIKER – TOPSHOP 2. PRINTED SHIRT -WAREHOUSE 3. PEPLUM TOP – H&M 4. STATEMENT NECKLACE -H&M 5.TOPSHOP 6. STUDDED BOOTS -TOPSHOP

So now that I have you lusting over these key Autumn/Fall pieces (you were warned) NWB have picked six of the best highstreet pieces to get you even more inspired (above).

NWB BEAUTY: MOSCHINO’S RED LIPPED ARMY AT MFW

The Moschino show at Milan Fashion Week was taken over by an army of Red lipped models.This classic beauty trend will never go out of style and as always red lipstick is essential for your Autumn/Winter beauty closet.

Red Lips take cent re stage at the Moschino show at Milan Fashion Week.

At the Moschino show at Milan Fashion week it was all about the red lip. Red lipstick is a basic beauty staple that everyone woman should own. Just carrying a red lipstick in your handbag can take you from day to night within minutes. However, finding the perfect shade of red to suit you can be a daunting task. So my tip would be to play around with a few different tones of red before you find the perfect one. And if you can’t chose one why don’t you just blend your  two favorite together to create trendy a lip ombre (this look is so Rita Ora – Hot right now).

Dark brows, white Eyeliner and Red Lips at Moschino’s MFW Show.

Dark eyebrows, white eyeliner and red lips was the winning beauty combo at the Moschino show. Dramatic white eyeliner is a new trend this season. So ladies put your black eyeliner to one side and replace it with a white one to update this classic look. Recommended red lipsticks to achieve this look would be MAC ‘Ruby Woo’ , Chanel ‘Gabrielle’ and Rimmel ‘Alarm’.

NWB FASHION NEWS: KANYE WEST TO SKIP PARIS FASHION WEEK

Kanye West at his Paris Fashion Week Debut two seasons ago.

Let me paint the scene for you. Imagine for a second that you are a new designer who is about to launch your debut collection at Paris Fashion Week. Not only are you in the world’s fashion capital but you are debuting your work to some of the powerful fashion critics in the world. This moment could make or break your fashion career within in minutes. Oh and did I forget to mention that you are one of the biggest rappers in the world who is attempting to break in to the fashion industry with a high fashion women’s collection. You are Kanye West, a style icon in your own very right, and boyfriend to reality star Kim Kardashian (his muse).

Despite being an established rapper in the fashion industry you are at the bottom of the ladder. Not only do you have to face producing an aesthetic that best encapsulates your capabilities but you also have to protect your vision and make sure it is understood and valued. These are just a few of the things that Kanye West was invetiably bound to face  when he launched his first ever ready to wear women’s collection in 2011. Two shows later and it has been confirmed that Kanye West will not be showing for a third time at this coming Paris Fashion Week according to WWD.

A look taken from Kanye West’s debut ready to wear collection at PFW.

The reason for Kanye West missing out on the show that debuted him on to the fashion world only a year ago is still unknown. However, one can only imagine that with some the poor reviews the hip hop mogul received that he might be putting the fashion thing on pause for now.  Hopefully Kanye West has just taken that time out to refine his vision because I actually really enjoyed his collection. It was definitely a positive thing to something a bit different design point of view at Paris Fashion Week and a show that had such great energy.

NWB BEAUTY HAUL: MUST HAVE LIPSTICK SHADES FOR AUTUMN/FALL

A selection of hand picked lipsticks for the Autumn/Fall including MAC, Chanel, Tom Ford and Rimmel.

THE AUTUMN/FALL NUDE AND PINK SHADES

MAC Patisserie, MAC Snob, Mac Up The Amp, Tom Ford Warm Sable and Mac Chatterbox (from to left to bottom right)

With Pink and Nude shades this season its all about the muted look so to get the best results out these lipsticks pair them with really natural eye makeup. MAC’s Snob and Tom Ford’s sable a two great shades that are very easy to wear on a day to day. MAC’s Up The  Amp is a cult classic and must have shade for every fashionista as it looks amazing on all skintones.

THE AUTUMN/FALL PURPLE SHADES

Mac Odyssey, MAC Film Noir, MAC Cyber and Rimmel 04 Lipstick taken from the Kate Moss Collection (from left to right)

NWB loves purple this season. It’s all about those dark gothic tones. So ladies be brave and wear MAC’s Cyber on night out with the girls and MAC’s Odyssey during the day for a more subtle purple lip look. Purple lipstick was all over the catwalk early this year and is bound to be a huge trend this Autumn/ Fall.

THE AUTUMN/FALL RED SHADES

MAC Diva, MAC Ruby Woo, Tom Ford Scarlet Rouge and Chanel Gabrielle.

MAC’s Diva is definitely my favourite red shade this season. Its dark and is the perfect lipstick to achieve that Vamp look which is so on trend this season. The matte texture of this lipstick also means that it lasts throughout the day and is just really easy to wear everyday. I’m also loving Tom Ford’s Scarlet Rouge lipstick at the moment. It’s a perfect red orange which takes from day to night seamlessly. And of course you can’t go without MAC’s Ruby Woo this season because it is the perfect bright red lipstick (perfect for creating a pin up look) which in my opinion every girl should own!

NWB DESIGNER VS HIGHSTREET: KIM KARDASHIAN’S HERMES TOTE

Image

Kim Kardashian is one the biggest style icons of our generation. She always looks flawless. Her style is classic and simple so Kim tends to build her ensembles from basic pieces and then picks key statement pieces as the focal point of her day to day look. 

One thing our stylish Kim is never short of is a stunning designer handbag. So I know I’m not the only one experiencing some serious Kim envy when I see her casually rocking a new handbag every five minutes (like the one she wore yesterday is going out style! if that’s the case Kim please send that my way!)

So the question is how can we look as stylish on highstreet budget. In general, handbags are a great way to update even the most casual outfits making whatever you were instantly more trendy ( thats if you get it right of course) .

A staple handbag that every girl should own is the classic tote which happens to be one of Kim’s favourite type of handbags. Designers such as Hermes (as modelled by Kim above) and Chloé are renowned for this style of bag. But thanks to Warehouse we can now all get are hands on the next best thing on the British highstreet!

Warehouse Totes in Beige and Tan retailing at just 35 pounds and just as glamorous as Kim K’s Hermes tote. I couldn’t choose which colour so I treated myself to both!

Warehouse have cleverly designed the perfect tote by incorporating both the shape of a Hermes tote and the padlock and key detail of a Chloé tote. So not only do you have the best of the both worlds. You also get great style for a fraction of the cost. Click here to purchase your very own Warehouse tote and become the envy of all your friends.
