Catwalks around the world glittered and glistened as metallics and embellishment took over AW12 fashion. Irish designer Caroline Kilkenny brings elegance and sophistication with her new collection, embracing luxurious metallics with the Caroline Kilkenny Chloe dress, €189.95, and the brocade style Caroline Kilkenny Milly dress, €239.95, both of which are great pieces for Christmas.
The use of rich fabric by Fee G in its new collection is perfect for nailing this trend. Cobalt blue is an important colour for the coming season and the stunning Fee G feather trim dress, €224.95, perfectly blends rich texture and colour for a show-stopping look. Embellished detail will give even the simplest of pieces a luxurious feel — take for example the wardrobe staple LBD given some extra glamour with shimmering detail in the Fee G sparkly tweed dress, €254.95.
Prepare to wrap up in style this winter with chunky knits and lavish coats. The Luke Lovely range embraces AW rustic style with simple, versatile, pieces. Wear the Luke Lovely sweater dress, €94.95, with opaque tights and leather riding boots for a casual chic look. Winter fashion is all about layering, so add some rugged texture to your look in the Stills sleeveless cardigan, €254.95, with added loop knit detail. The Gustav stripe cardigan, €179.95, is a great everyday winter investment piece and can be worn with plain denim jeans or over a fitted dress.
If there is one rule when it comes to buying coats and jackets, it has to be to invest in a good winter coat that will see you through season after season. Fee G’s AW12 collection boasts a selection of stunning coats. The Fee G shawl collar coat, €319.95, in rich autumnal plum is super stylish and flattering with its shawl collar finish, while the detailing on the Fee G lace panel coat, €284.95, will bring an elegant, ladylike, feel to any outfit.
