Despite the dark nights and the cold, crisp, weather, winter fashion needs not be dull and dreary. Although blacks, greys, and burgundys are your staple colours for the season you can always inject that much needed bit of life and colour into your wardrobe with a simple printed blouse or a vibrant printed scarf.
Prints are now everywhere. And judging by the latest collections from Prada, JW Anderson, Stella McCartney, and other designers, the more we own prints the better. One of the key trends of the autumn winter 2012/ 2013 season is chiffon blouses which come fully covered with bold, often bright, and eye-catching prints. Wear them with either monotone pieces to keep your outfit well-balanced, or pair them with other printed items to make a contrast. At Born Clothing stocks a wide variety of printed chiffon blouses, one of my favourites being the Vila Marine top at €26.95. Pair this with a pair of structured skinny jeans and a sharp blazer for an edgy daywear look.
Another massive trend this season is the animal print which has trickled into every area of fashion including blazers, T-shirts, scarves, and most recently in skinny jeans. Born Clothing stock the most amazing Vila leopard print skinny jeans priced at €39.95. These animal printed jeans are definitely a statement piece, so if you wish tame this outfit by adding black ankle books and a black top.
Keeping with the animal print trend, wrap up warm this winter with a faux fur coat available in Born Clothing in black and cream by Vero Moda, priced at €79.95. For those of you who are more daring the leopard print three-quarter length faux fur coat could be right up your street. This Vero Moda jacket is for the wild at heart and priced at only €79.95 is a steal for this season.
To combat the cold this weekend Born Clothing is offering €10 off all coats and jackets from Friday to Sunday so now is your chance to snap one up.
