Last week I attended the House of Fraser autumn/winter press preview in Belfast. I got a sneak peek at the upcoming clothing ranges from Mary Portas, BIBA, Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, as well as House of Fraser’s own ranges Linea and Linea Weekend. I now have a wishlist as long as my arm! I was very pleased to see plenty of ochre green on display so I’ll be continuing to wear the colour whilst I can get my hands on it! There was also some classy checked pieces and some beautiful bags and glam jewellery.
Here are my House of Fraser top picks for autumn/winter…
THE MARY PORTAS TRENCH COAT & SCARF
Mary Portas can do no wrong in my eyes and I think her HoF exclusive clothing range gets better each season. I adore this draped trench coat, especially paired with the chartreuse scarf. These cover-ups are perfect for the cooler autumn months when you need to start layering up but aren’t ready for a full on chunky winter coat.
THE BIBA JACQUARD DRESS & LINEA SATCHEL BAG
This is a beautiful statement dress that could easily take you from day activities to night-time fun. Wear it with black tights and some high heels and you’ll be good to go. I love the rose gold zip detailing at the back. And the Linea caramel and black satchel bag looks great against the monochrome dress.
THE BIBA FRILL BLOUSE
I love the colour and style of this blouse. Wear with ripped jeans for a fun smart/casual look, or pair with a sexy pencil skirt like it’s styled here and your ready for a busy day at work.
THE THERAPY BLACK & WHITE BAG
I’m liking small bags more and more recently and I think this little monochrome bag would make a very stylish statement to any outfit. This cute fun bag has a definite 80s vibe about it.
THE LINEA CASHMINK CHECK SCARF
As well as ochre green I’ll be on the look-out for some checked items to add to my wardrobe this autumn/winter. All the Linea scarves this season are bang on trend and I love this brown and cream checked cashmink scarf, which looks amazing against the cream sweater and glam necklace.
