Last week, I was invited to the Bullring’s Your 5 event for the autumn and winter to speak to a stylist. The Your 5 stand was set up next to Selfridges on the ground floor of the Bullring, as it was last time. I arrived and was assigned a stylist who took me around the five different key trends for the autumn and winter and talked me through each one. I then had to pick a piece from each section and the stylist took photos of them on her iPad and then emailed them over to me at the end of the session.
The five different sections were:
The Coat – I’m currently looking for a new winter coat and I found so many that I liked. Bomber jackets are still in for autumn and winter, they’re just a bit thicker and longer than the ones that were around in the summer. The coat I picked out was this green faux shearling biker jacket from Topshop.
The Knit – Again, there were so many different jumpers that I liked and I was surprised that the majority of them were from Topshop as I would never usually shop there.
The Wide Leg Trouser – I’m not a fan of wide leg trousers, as I thought they would make my legs look shorter and stumpier than they already are, however the stylist showed me a few different styles that would suit me and now I will definitely be trying a few pairs on.
The Skirt – I absolutely loved most of the skirts that were on the rail, but I especially fell for this green pleather skirt from New Look. It’s such a bargain at £19.99 and I will be trying it on a bit closer to payday.
The Boot – I think that boots are a must have for the colder months and I currently don’t have an everyday black pair, so it was good to have a look at the stylist’s picks. I found a couple of black pairs that I liked but there were also some gold ones from New Look that caught my eye.
