Cowboy Chic

The catwalks are already brimming with style delights we can look forward to wearing this Autumn/Winter 2014. It may seem early, but I certainly appreciate being aware of the upcoming trends well in advance. My finances need several months notice before I am even able to contemplate the purchase of any of the designer pieces gracing the fashion world, so the earlier I start saving the better!  

Chanel's Autumn/Winter 2014-15 Ready-To-Wear collection is no exception, offering up some amazing Texan inspired looks, full of fringing, plenty of leather and more hats than you've got days in the season. I particularly love the patterns and mix of textures in the collection, with a diverse range of pieces perfect to mix and match, layer and keep yourself warm for the inevitably chilly coming winter. These two looks particularly stand out to me, with the patterned wraps and gorgeously chosen accessories.

We're still wrapped up in this year's wintery warmers but I am already excited at the thought of throwing on one of the Chanel's wrap-arounds and keeping out the cold. They're effortlessly cool and wonderfully enveloping, perfect for the season. I am so intrigued by the fur dress as worn in the left image, I would love to see how that could be worn as a smart workplace look or dressed up for a evening occasion. I think it could look spectacular, and be a fabulous talking point if worn well. It's so unusual and you can feel pretty confident that you would never be caught short and bump into someone similarly dressed when you're wearing that furry number. I'd love to have an event to wear it at!

It seems we should be planning ahead for the coming Autumn/Winter, so get saving and I'll see you next year all tassles and leather in keeping with the trends of 2014!
