With the seasons changing and the festive period creeping upon us, there’s no better time to update your wardrobe with some comfortable and cosy additions. Whether you prefer to spend your weekends taking long strolls outdoors or wrapped up inside with a great movie and a hot chocolate, we’ve rounded up our top autumn winter 2015 fashion trends under $50 to hit the stores this week.
The poncho trend may have been huge last season thanks to the Burberry runways, but the blanket wrap is back in a big way for the current season. Snuggly, chic and super-versatile, a neutral-colored blanket wrap is the perfect transitional piece to combat the cold weather. Wear over a simple tank or sweater and jeans for a foolproof, off-duty look.
Green Check Pinny Dress
Classic pinafore dresses are a big story this autumn/winter, and the good news is — this trend is super-comfortable. This is your go-to for lazy weekend lunches. Easy to layer over soft, roll neck sweaters or with cosy oversized cardigans, a simple pinafore dress is a must-have piece that will see you through the season ahead.
Roll Neck Sleeveless Tunic
Big knits can leave you feeling hot and flustered when you’re in the heated indoors. But sleeveless roll neck is a great compromise. Longline tunic styles look great over thick leggings or skinny fit jeans with ankle boots for cocktails with the girls. Throw on a chic blazer or winter coat if you’re heading outdoors to weather-proof the look.
Oversized Square Scarf
No winter wardrobe is complete without a great statement scarf. Check and patchwork styles are a big trend this AW15 and will work well with denim, cream, beige, tan, beige and berry pieces in your closet. Oversized styles are super versatile, as they can be worn as a shawl wrapped around the shoulders or wrapped around the neck.
Ivory Polka Dot Knitted Jumper
A fun sweater can instantly liven up your go-to basics. A classic polka dot knit is a chic option that is easy to wear wear with skirts and denim. Layer underneath gilets and cardigans when the chill sets in.
