The Mango Autumn/Winter 2010 collection is making me weak at the knees and a lot of its key pieces have come straight from the catwalk. Slouchy yet tailored leather trousers, long cardigans with skinny belts and flattering knee-length, a-line skirts. The whole line has a very cool seventies feel; very feminine and relaxed but still incredibly chic.
Of course I couldn’t mention A/W trends without mentioning THE trend of the season, the colour camel. Although the world’s most stylish women have never discarded the timeless and ever-elegant camel coat, this season it is the colour to be seen in. Coats, trousers, shorts, suits; tan is definitely the new black.
If you can’t afford a Maxmara or Chloe coat however never fear as the high street has some camel beauties too including Topshop’s camel Oversized Boyfriend Coat and ASOS’s camel cape which nails two A/W 10 trends in one.
As the nights start to get darker and the wind brings with it icy chills don’t mourn summer, instead embrace the gorgeous textures and silhouettes that define A/W 2010. Or, put the heating on, make yourself a cup of hot chocolate and stay inside; Scarlett Johansson already bagged Ryan Reynolds. Bitch.
