Paris Fashion Week is upon us, hurrah! Let the catwalks commence!

By Andrew Deyes

With luxury fashion houses from around the world showing for Spring/Summer 2017 and the British Summer time coming to an end it’s time we thought about the Winter wardrobe 2016! As students, what we wear and how we wear it influences how we feel and is important to look good without breaking the bank. Money is scarce and we want look runway ready. The high street offers champagne looks for lemonade money and I’m here to let you know what is hot for this winter!

Love Stripes? – Who doesn’t!
H&M – £17.99

Similar has been seen by Fendi and Max Mara. A bargain entry into winters offering colour and the linear look. The combination of brighter teal tones and the muted black keeps it modern and a twist on the catwalk alternatives.

This jumper is a great addition to the ever growing winter jumper collections that we all have!

Pink Velvet Pleat Midi Skirt
Topshop – £55.00

Similar has been seen by Valentino and Roksanda. Velvet is back and no longer the fabric of dark jackets but now being in an array of bright colours! A chic midi skirt is best worn with metallic to dress it up or an oversized winter jumper and boots to dress it down. A hot piece for your winter wardrobe.

This skirt is a great staple piece and addition to the ever growing working wardrobe.

Wool Mix Duffle Coat
ASOS – £70.00

Similar has been seen by Coach and Dior Homme. Guys, a coat is a must have for winter even if you think your manly enough to survive the cold. The duffle coat is back once more along with darker shades meaning guys; you will be bang on trend for A/W 16.

A must have for the cold weather ahead!

Chain detailed leather ankle boots
Zara – £89.99

Similar has been seen by Louis Vuitton. I know these are expensive but worth every penny if you can afford them. Hiking boots are back, making a stomp on the catwalks for A/W 16, they are a great addition due to their versatility within the capsule wardrobe.

Feeling military with the laces, the silver-toned chain details keep the fashionistas happy as they trickle down from the catwalks.

Cava, Prosecco, Champagne

Now, I’m not encouraging drinking by any means by naming the clothing arrangement below after some of my favourite drinks, but you get the idea of good, better and best depending on taste and budget.
