Autumn/Winter 2017/2018 Key Trends

The Parisian Look

Zara’s A/W collection is captures the french look with various colours of berets, trench coats and stripes.


Suits are in. They are predominantly oversized. Mix and match them; team your blazer with a matching skirt or jeans, the suit trouser with a poloneck or t-shirt, turn an oversized suit jacket into a dress with a belt. The possibilities are endless.


What’s rose gold again? Silver is now the colour of the season. It was shown at various fashion shows from Chanel to Comme des Garcons c

Polka Dots

Polka dot dresses were incredibly popular for summer this year, but they are continuing into autumn. Now we are seeing, polka dot long sleeve blouses for winter. But your summer dresses can be transformed with a crop knit jumper and a pair of tights and boots.

Dogtooth/Houndstooth Pattern

Similar to check, this pattern is everywhere. It can be seen in coats, skirts, trousers, shoes, the list goes on.


My Current Skincare Favourites

  • Always wear eye cream! I cannot say this enough. Whether it be anti-aging or one that combats dark circles/under eye bags. The La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Eyes does a great job, expensive at €18.49 in Boots; but it will last a long time.
  • Clinique’s ‘Take The Day Off’ cleansing balm removes every trace of makeup (literally melts away waterproof products). It can also be used as a regular cleanser – two products in one. It is not harsh on your skin, and II find some makeup removers irritate my eyes while I’m trying to remove stubborn mascara. This product retails at €29 in Sam McCauley Chemists.
  • Penneys range of undereye and full face masks are incredible, yet inexpensive at just €1/€1.50. There is a mask for every complaint and skin type. The plumping Vitamin E sheet mask left my skin feeling soft and subtle. What’s not to love?
