A/W 2011 Trends: Get it on the High Street!

A few days ago, I did a post about the trends for winter based on the latest designer collections. Because of the popularity of the post, I have decided to take the trends I blogged about and show you my picks from the high street so you can make sure that your wardrobe is bang on trend!

Trend 1: Spots All Over the Place!
Black Collar Playsuit

Cream Chiffon Dot Blouse

 This black collar playsuit is so cute and would be perfect for winter combined with thick black tights and ankle boots.

These blouses look so smart and would look great with skinny jeans.

Chiffon Dot Blouse

Orange Polka Dot Tassel Scarf

This orange polka dot scarf is perfect to warm you up and give a splash of colour to your outfit, and it's a  steal at £2.00 in the sale!
This black polka dress is so cute and could be worn during the day and night!

Trend 2:  A Fetish for S&M ;) 
S&M is set to be big this season, and this Topshop dress seen on the catwalks illustrates that! 


Cut-Out Bodycon Dress

Lana Silk Hollywood Shirt Dress
Wheels & Dollbaby

 Criss-Cross Bandeau Dress

This reminds me of the Louis Vuitton collection with the French maid theme. Keep jewellery to a minimum and wear black tights to cover up against the winter cold!

 A great night-out dress for all those winter parties!

Trend 3: Sexy in Sheer!

Sheer has been a trend that has been featured in many seasons, and like the designer collections, it has also been everywhere on the high street. 

Haughty Culture Sheer Top
This black sheer top is an essential in any fashionista's wardrobe. This little classic can be accessorised with chunky jewellery. For a great, simple outfit, wear with skinny jeans and ankle boots topped with lots of jewellery! 

Sheer Maxi Beach Skirt

For those in the southern hemisphere who are going into summer or those escaping winter for sunnier climes, this sheer beach maxi skirt is perfect for over your bikini.

Tie Dye Sheer Blouse
Tie-dye and sheer- two trends in one! This would compliment any hippy look! Wear with shorts and tights, and tan boots for a perfect winter look.

Trend 4: Find a Jewel!

The rich colour palette of winter are jewel colours, and the High Street has taken note, featuring a range of colours from deep yellows to rich blues and emeralds.

I love the rich burgundy colour of this dress. Pair with tights and a nice woolen jersey to keep you warm :)

Pleated Emerald Dress
This dress is such a stunning emerald colour, and is an instant classic. Wear with minimalist jewellery, and pair it with this season's other latest trend- an obi belt; I would recommend a mustard coloured obi belt for a striking contrast.

Mustard Blazer

This mustard blazer will bring a splash of colour to any outfit as well as giving a smart look.

Tartan Betsy Flare Dress
Motel Rocks
Trend 5: Tartan Treasures!

Green Tartan Check Shirt
River Island
Tartan is back in, but there are other ways of wearing it other than a kilt!

This dress is so cute and would be gorgeous paired with tights and a pair of flat ankle boots!

Everyone needs a tartan shirt in their wardrobe! This one is a bargain at £20.00 and would look great with a woolen jumper and skinny jeans!

Green Tartan Tights
River Island

Tartan Jacket

If you're a bit more adventurous, inject some tartan into your wardrobe with some tartan tights! Pair with a black bodycon skirt and a simple blouse to create a killer trendy outfit.

I am in love with this tartan jacket! It is great for sprucing up any outfit this winter!
So there you have it... my picks from the high street to get you up to date on the latest trends! :)
