So Today I thought I’d create a post putting together some of my favourite Autumn/Winter trends for this year. The 5 trends I chose are Oxblood colour, Camouflage print, Studs, Tartan/Plaid and the Cosmo Galaxy print. Some of these were quite ‘on trend’ last winter but I think they will look great this year as well!
1. Bag: Urban Outfitters, Skirt: River Island, Shoes: Topshop
I absolutely love the Oxblood colour, the name itself isn’t all that appealing but I love how deep and rich it is. I’ve been wanting some cut-out boots for a while now and these ones from Topshop are everything I want and more! I also love the Cambridge Satchel as it would be really handy for Uni and polka dot skater skirt is just too cute to ignore!
2. Coat: Topshop, Sleeveless Jacket: River Island, Shoes: Hunters
The Camo print was quite big last winter but I am definitely beginning to appreciate it a lot more this year. This coat from Topshop caught my eye because of its fur collar, I love the effect it gives and I think it would look great with some light wash denim and black boots. At the end of September I will be moving to Uni and my University is up North. Now everyone knows that it tends to be rather rainy up there and I think these army green Hunter willies would be perfect to take with me! I think the colour is divine and I really, really want them haha!
3. Jacket & Boots: Topshop, Bag: Zara
Third on my list are studs! I love the clutch from Zara and I think it would be perfect for when you want to go out but you don’t want to lunge around a massive bag. I’m also in love with these boots from Topshop; I think the buckles and silver hardware really add a pleasant sense of edginess without being too overwhelming.
4. Jacket & Shirt: Topshop, Blazer: River Island
The fourth trend is Tartan/Plaid. Okay, the main reason I added this trend to my list is because I wanted everyone to see how amazing this red plaid Jacket is! Isn’t it gorgeous!! I am so in love with it and I think I may have to purchase it because I need it in my life.
5. Hat: Topshop, Top & Jeans: River Island
Last but not least is the Cosmo Galaxy print. I saw quite a bit of this trend last year but I never came across any items which were nice enough for me to purchase. This year however, I have seen so many funky pieces which I think look really cool. I love the beanie hat and its speckled effect, perfect for those bad hair days! I also really like these Jeans from River Island and I think they would look perfect with a black tee and a bit of leather!
Now I know you guys may be wondering what the DIY treat is and if you are anything like me, you’re gonna love it!
I have a friend called Christina and she makes video’s on YouTube, she is a singer and she is in a band called ‘Searching Alaska’. On YouTube she mainly does singing videos which are amazing and you should definitely check them out! Anyhoo, she recently DIYed a plain black pair of wedged boots and transformed them into a Cosmo/Galactic piece of beauty!
How amazing right!!
She made a video showing how she did it and I thought I’d share it with you all because I know you’ll love it! J If you have a go at making your own, I’d love to see how they turn out, tweet me @newkidtweets!

I hope everyone is well & hope you all have a good weekend!
Lots of Love
