It's officially autumn, and while we're sad to wave goodbye to summer, we are so excited to embrace the new season and all the fashion trends that come with it. PLUS, we are excited to tell you about the chance to win a $2000 wardrobe from the City. I know. Shut the front door.
But, first things first. Autumn Winter 2013 is shaping up to be a biggie, and there are some key trends that have emerged that we predict will be the top looks for the season.
Prints will be everywhere this winter, and now is the time to be brave, and embrace the plethora of stunning options available. Whether it's floral, tribal, or geometric, there is a print for everyone.
Always big in the cooler months, leather is not going anywhere this season. Stylish, edgy, and timeless, you can't go wrong with a great pair of leather pants or a leather pencil skirt. Just want to dip your toe into the leather pool? No worries, keep your eyes peeled for leather accents on anything and everything.
Black and white. A classic combo that has the ability to make one's outfit appear instantly chic, simple, and fashion forward, monochrome has been all over the runways. Play with textures and styles to keep it current, and you're onto a winner.
Where to go
If you're looking for a one-stop-shop for all your new-season fashion finds, look no further than the City. With over 250 local and international designers, Queensland's largest collection of flagship stores, and a range of independent boutiques, there is nothing you can't find.
We guarantee you'll find something (or lots of somethings) in one of the four shopping precincts in town – Queen Street Mall (The Myer Centre, Wintergarden, QueensPlaza, Brisbane Arcade & Tattersall's Arcade), Edward St (MacArthur Central), Elizabeth St (Elizabeth Arcade), and Adelaide St.
Whether you're after big names (think, Bally, Chanel, Coach, or Gucci for a start) or smaller boutiques (we love Sambag, Zimmerman, and The Babushka Ballerina – and this is just the tip of the iceberg!) you're pretty much covered for what to wear and buy to make the seasonal transition easier. And there's nothing like a bit of retail therapy to cure those post-summer blues!
Yeah yeah yeah, get to the good stuff, I hear you say. Righto, well this is what you could win simply by entering this incredible competition…
To make sure you're set for winter, the City are giving away a wardrobe of designer fashion must-haves, worth $2000. Amazing, right?
