A/W 2017 is finally upon us, which means now is the perfect time to update your wardrobe for the season ahead. 

From bold colours to glittery boots, this year's runways showcased so many stylish and exciting trends, it was almost impossible to pick a favourite – though we think we may have found a winner. 

High-shine silver is this season's must-have look, and while it might be a little OTT for some people's taste, it's actually a lot more wearable than you might think. 

Whether it's a metallic slip dress, or an iridescent boot, the high-street is packed full of gorgeous options to suit everyone's style. 

Here's some of our favourites:

1. New Look – €22.99 2. ASOS – €83.78 3. Boohoo – €23.00

The Jacket

Ladies, loathe and all as we are to admit it, it seems summer is well and truly over.

(Even though we’re not entirely sure it ever really started, to be fair.)

And while thoughts of staring down another bleak winter don’t exactly enthuse, Dunnes have softened the blow massively with the launch of their Savida AW17 range.

Contrasting vibrant floral prints with embellished wools, the range is everything we adore about a season in which mixing and matching is almost compulsory.

Making a statement this Autumn has literally never been easier, and we are already eyeing up the newest additions to our wardrobe.

Ladies, we sense a shopping spree coming on.




So, Autumn is almost upon us, and you know what that means –  time clean out that makeup bag, and stock up for the season ahead.

It's around that time of year again when thoughts of sandals and bikini tops slowly turn to warm fires and wool blankets – and honestly, we're not mad about it. 

Naturally the darker evenings and colder weather lead us to spend more time indoors, meaning now is the perfect time to upgrade your home interiors before settling in for the season ahead. 

From bohemian lighting to velvet cushions, this AW is all about making statements and we've rounded up some of this year's hottest trends to get your creative juices flowing. 

1. Bold Textures 

Whether it's a chunky knit, velvet bedding or faux fur furnishings, interesting textures are huge for AW17. 

A few simple cushions or a luxurious throw can add a real element of warmth and cosiness, without breaking the bank.

2. Dark Green

While many of us tend to shy away from dark interiors, the addition of rich colour adds depth to any living space – as long as you don't over do it, of course. 

If you've got a dodgy chest of drawers or a bedside table that's seen better days, why not give your furniture a new lease of life with a fresh lick of dark green paint?

Combined with a neutral background, this usual colour combination works a treat for the season ahead.

3. Rustic Lighting

With darker evenings approaching fast, lighting is an important feature in any home.

And if you're looking to stay on trend this AW – bohemian is better. 

Shut the curtains and transform your room into a Moroccan paradise (even if the weather outside is miserable).

4. Brass

Goodbye copper, hello brass! 

When used sparingly, this metal can add a touch of warmth and class to any room – but be careful, it can be easy to go overboard.

 Be sure to incorporate it alongside other colours and textures, but seeing as it goes with pretty much everything, finding a match shouldn't be a problem. 

Frames and flowers pots work especially well.

5. Patterned Duvets

When it comes to bedding, minimalism is out and eye-catching design is in. 

From tropical to paisley, your bed is one of the few places in your home where you have the freedom to mix colours, texture and patterns as you choose – go wild!
