Intu Metrocentre Stylist, Michaela Dale, talked us through this seasons must have garments from Simply Be, Oasis, Warehouse, French Connection and more. The previewed trends included heritage checks, which focused on traditional checked prints with an authentic vintage feel. Velvet Dreams demonstrated how to wear seasonal velvet pieces and how to break up the look by mixing textures. Purple Reign showed off regal tones which are certain to brighten up the colder months, whilst Midnight Sparkle debuted those must have glittering pieces for the party season. The final trend was timeless animal print, which is ideal to brighten up a muted outfit with a statement pair of boots or printed jacket. We fell in love with a baby pink faux fur coat from Cath Kidston and a stunning embellished blouse from BIBA.

Thank you to Intu Metrocentre for having us and hosting a great event!
