If you're in any way a fashion kinda girl, these amazing trends will have you jumping head over heels.

From check coats to Loub lipsticks, it seems this A/W is the best season to make a style statement. 


1) Check it out

Plaid is a no-brainer when it comes to looking cool in the cold weather, but be careful not to play it too safe this season. Go for something eye-catching to make you stand out from the crowd. This Miu Miu A/W 2015 coat is perfect for making a statement. At nearly €5,000 though, it might be a little out of our price range, so we spotted this fab Topshop replica


2) Louboutin lippy

Christian Louboutin, the luxury shoe designer, now wants to dress women from head to toe. In recent months, the designer launched Loub lipstick, in a whopping 38 shades. The make-up packaging is very art deco, but also comes with a big bonus – you can wear it as a necklace or earrings. Fancy. Never lose your lippy at the bottom of your bag again!


3) Join the Krewe

You may not be able to join Gigi Hadid's squad, but you can definitely copy her Krewe – sunglasses, that is. The model is a huge fan of the indie eye-wear brand, which crafts handmade frames inspired by a city's culture. They go for nearly €200, but if that's a bit pricey, we spotted these great ones from River Island. 


4) The braidy bunch

It's time for the fishtail trend to move over as there's a new twist in town: cornrows. But don't worry, we're not talking Alicia Keys dodgy hair do' circa early 2000. Celebs like Amanda Seyfried, Cara Delevingne, Kendall Jenner and Selena Gomez have all sported the trend recently.

Celebs soften the look by just doing a few plaits up top and letting the rest of the hair fall into loose waves. 


5) The NEW statement bag

From Gucci's runway show it seems there's a new statement bag on the scene and we're VERY fond of it. Gone are the days of flashy, bright bags as luxury labels are sporting a more paired back, minimalist style.

Dakota Johnson and Rosie Huntington-Whitely are all major fans of the trend. If you don't fancy spending nearly €2,500 for it though, we spotted one here for a tiny fraction of the price.



American retailer Gap has sparked controversy after tweeting a photo of a very slim model, wearing a plaid shirtdress with the caption: “Dress up your days in pastel plaid”

Once the tweet was sent out, the Internet responded with a LOT of criticism:

“Seriously, Gap? In what world do people look like this? Perhaps you could select models who represent regular gals and not a skeletor ghost.”

“Doesn’t Gap feed its models? Seriously she looks ill. Please use healthy looking women in your ads next time.”

Another said the model looked like “a pencil in plaid”.

The same shirtdress is on the retailer’s website, only there, it is modelled by a regular sized model, which makes you wonder why they chose to use a size zero model on social media.

Gap have yet to respond to the comments.
