Primark have released a special new collection to celebrate the autumn season, and it really allows your style to…bloom *winks*.

Who said roses can only be the theme of Valentine's Day? Primark are going above and beyond to prove that rose patterns can be worn at any time of the year, including Autum/Winter '19.

The rose print collection focuses on femininity, with soft frills, vibrant reds and bussy bow necklines. We can't think of anything better to fit into our autumn wardrobes, especially with these low prices.

First up, Primark's rose print full-length dress with a cinched waistline priced at just €25:

Primark, €25

What a look. You'll be the centre of attention in any room with a bold colour choice like this one.

Next up- Primark's floral rose print blouse in deep red for only €15;

Primark, €15

The frilled sleeves and shoulders really add to the chic vibes this blouse is giving off. The pussy bow neckline is an added feminine touch.

The next skirt has a colour change from the deep reds of the previous two items, if you want more of a springtime look;

Primark, €18

Did you really think they'd only offer you one type of rose print blouse? Hell no.

Primark's petal blouse with cream colouring really makes the red pop in this final piece. From the frills on the shoulders and sleeves to the collarbone neckline; you really can't get more glamorous.

Primark, €15

The whole collection has a maximum price of €25, so what are you waiting for? Stay rosy this autumn. The rose print range is out now in all Primark stores.

Faux real, winter is well and truly on its way. "What does this mean?" I hear you ask. It means… it's time to get FURRY.

Finding the perfect coat can be a difficult, time-consuming and frustrating task. We've decided to do all the work FUR you, and compile a list of every coat that has caught our eye on the high street this winter season.

So far, brands such a Monki, Mango, Topshop and Zara have impressed us with their glamorous faux fur, but there are some KILLAH vintage websites such as Nine Crows, ASOS Marketplace and Beyond Retro which sell vintage faux fur items that have us collapsed on the floor in sheer fashion overdrive.

I mean, you're welcome.

Nasty Gal Go Fur It Faux Fur Coat, was €121.00 now €60.50


Topshop Luxe Faux Fur Coat: 125,00 €

Some of these uber-glam coats are on sale this week (Black Friday, how are ya) so nab them before they sell out.

Fur can be a tricky business to navigate, finding the right one to suit you is honestly like picking your new home. You're seeking comfort, warmth, and a place to sleep.

What? You can't deny that those coats are prime nap-time material. They're warmer than our hearts after watching pupper videos on Youtube.

Which one's your favourite?



I recall my first encounter with Benetton like it was yesterday, even though it was more than a decade ago. 

On a family trip to New York (during the boom, obvs) my aunties, cousins and I were wandering around the city that never sleeps, spending our Celtic Tiger-converted dollars on clothes to bring back home. 

My aunties, purists when it came to the quality of clothing, quickened their pace when they spotted the United Colors of Benetton flagship store on the prestigious 5th Avenue. 

I think I remember it so well because of the wall to ceiling rainbow of folded jumpers which awaited us inside, and even today in their Dublin flagship, the iconic kaleidoscope of virgin wool is a key aspect of the store. 

My aunties bundled me into the dressing room of the behemoth New York store, buried under a mound of soft fabric and sturdy denim to try on a series of outfits, before I settled on an evergreen turtleneck jumper that genuinely, to this day, is folded up in a drawer in my house, without a loose thread or bobbling texture to be seen.

Granted, it's now folded up in my little sister's drawer rather than mine, and while I wore mine with printed bandanas and low rise jeans (the height of sophistication in my day), she wears it now with high-waisted suede miniskirts and under trendy, sporty outerwear. The longevity of the clothing is undeniable, and the A/W 2018 collection combines that timelessness with updated key trends for the new season. 

I went along to Benetton's breakfast showcase this morning, styled by the sartorially scrupulous Laura Mullet, to see what exactly the heritage brand was bringing to the table for the upcoming season.  

Along with the classic tailoring and sumptuous but built-to-last fabrics of their basics, the A/W collection incorporates some key contemporary trends into these quality standards. 

Starting with the classic jumper – while I saw the rainbow wall in all of it's organised glory, the knits also come in folky, Nordic patterns and almost tie-die effect prints.


Not only were knits getting a splash of print, they were also being knitted in some of this season's most on-trend shades. 

Acid green and baby blue were stand outs, as was a mohair zingy orange style that was screaming out to be teamed with a muted plaid trouser and boots. 

The jumpers were also given interesting new cuts, with scooped necks and very cropped hems. 

The entire collection managed to maintain a very Benetton vibe while pointing to contemporary undertones. The classic Benetton corduroy jeans were there, but in autumnal hues, and stacked alongside super flared jeans – the fashion version of Mom jeans, according to Laura. 

Wool shift dresses were given a Clueless makeover with bright plaid prints, and were styled with berets and colourful tights to kep your head and legs cosy. 

When print wasn't being utilised, texture came into play in a big way.

Teddy bear coats are a key outerwear piece this year, and while we're used to seeing them in a bomber jacket style in 50 shades of beige, Benetton's adaption is longline, russet brown and belted with leather. 

As for the bomber, velvet comes into play in a dusky cornflower blue. While bombers are traditionally boxy, Bentton's has a tailored edge with gathered sleeves and wide lapels. 

Trousers came flared or skinny, but always in rich suede, velvets or light denims. 

There was no shying away from statement fabrics either, with silk, feathering and sequins all playing their part to create the ultimate capsule of cropped jackets for party season. 

Overall the collection is ideal for layering in to any wardrobe, with the tailored elements of the pieces rendering them timeless, allowing then to survive in a sea of fast fashion for seasons to come. 



 So Electric Picnic is underway, thus ending the bombardment of 'what to wear to a festival' pieces until next year (or maybe Metropolis).

Autumn/Winter pieces have been trickling into stores for the past few weeks, and the soft muted colour palette is a welcome refuge from the tie-dye tinted festival fashion sub-genre.

Here are a few key pieces to turn your wardrobe trans-seasonal.

 Zara embellished jumper €45.95, Zara soft coat €39.95, ASOS metallic heels €40.54, Missguided leopard blouse €37.84

Zara mixed material jacket €69.95, ASOS eyelet ribbon belt €20.27, Pretty Little Thing suede skirt €29.70, New Look Manhattan top €19.99

Pretty Little Thing mustard top €24.30, New Look tassel top €24.99, Topshop dress €80.00, Dresses.ie floral skirt €25.00



Flip flops and gladiator sandals are all well and good, but come Autumn/Winter there’s nothing quite like a new pair of boots.

And while we are loving this year’s backless loafer trend, with plenty of rain guaranteed for the coming months, we think a decent pair of boots would fare the Irish fashionista that bit better.

On that note, here are three of our favourite boot trends for Autumn/Winter.

The Sock Boot: Sock boots are everywhere this season and with every colour, texture and heel height to choose from, there’s bound to be a pair to suit all tastes.

The Trophy Boot: Why not let your feet do the talking with a pair of on point trophy boots?  From soft floral embroidery to stand-out animal prints, the trophy boot is one of A/W16’s best trends.

The Over-The-Knee Boot: This style was everywhere last winter and with The Guardian dubbing it the “footwear [trend] of the decade” we don’t think it’s going anywhere fast.  Whether worn with a short suede skirt or over a pair of jeans, the over-the-knee boot will have you Autumn/Winter ready.

There was a time when silky slips were confined to the bedroom, but thanks to some forward thinking fashionistas the simple slip dress is about to become this year’s fashion staple.

In recent months the slip dress seems to have been given a whole new lease of life as it’s been worn both over and under tees, with cowboy boots and leather jackets and even on the red carpet.

And this trend is only going to keep getting bigger and better as the new Autumn/Winter stock finally arrives in stores.

Check out some of our favourite slipspiration below.


Natalie Roser:

With more than half a million followers on Instagram model Natalie Roser knows a thing or two about fashion, so it’s little wonder the Aussie beauty pulled off the perfect casual slip-centred look by matching this yellow dress with a denim jacket and nude flats.


Alexa Chung:

Alexa went for a slip with a difference when she paired this leather-look LBD with plain black boots.


Rumi Neely:

American fashion blogger Rumi Neely showed everyone how good a plain slip can look when she was photographed wearing this strappy red dress at New York Fashion Week.


Selena Gomez: 

Last month Selena Gomez was spotted in New York wearing an eyecatching floor length red slip with a simple pair of strappy gold heels.


Rosie Huntington Whiteley:

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley stunned in this pale pink satin Galvan gown at the Opening Ceremony dinner back in January proving that slip dresses can be worked for casual and occasion wear. 



Never one to fear adventurous fashion, Rihanna wore this bronze slip out in November with a long fur coat, silver sandals and navy baseball cap.


Kendall Jenner:

Back in April reality TV star Kendall Jenner wore a champagne coloured slip over a white tee on a night out with her model bestie Gigi Hadid.  Kendall accessorised her slip with a chunky silver choker and nude thigh-high boots.


Hanne Gaby Odiele:

Belgian model Hanne Gaby Odiele proved that there’s a slip to suit everyone when she married her DJ boyfriend in boho style over the weekend.  Henne’s bridesmaids wore lilac slip dresses of various lengths and styles on the big day.
