As we are stepping out of summer and making our way to Autumn, we are all gathering our favourite items to pop into a lovely autumn/winter wardrobe wish-list. Louise O’Reilly, an international model and blogger shares her gorgeous wish-list with us.
The Biker Jacket
From Balenciaga to Balmain, the biker jacket is a total Autumn/Winter favourite. The added studded detailing sets it apart for typical biker styles. For €35 it’s a bargain find from Penneys, due in stores early October (*marks date in calendar frantically as I type*).
The Shoe Boot
This statement shoe boot fuses two trends in one – a tan suede effect for true 70’s inspiration, mixed with shoe addicts current obsession; lace up detail. It’s a style that makes a statement in itself, meaning you can pull out your classic LBD for a perfect outfit ensemble. Boots, €63 Missguided.co.uk
Chupi is one of my favourite Irish jewellery designers. Her current collection is all kinds of stunning with keepsake pieces that are truly individual. On the left is an example of her“ We Are All Made Of Stars” collection where you can have your star sign constellation engraved in a beautiful gold flat disc. To the right is a stunning sparkling Prasiolite quartz gemstone, which is calling my name this autumn! @Chupi
Channeling some Victoria Beckham chic, this curve-hugging ensemble is a brilliant High Street find from River Island. Dress, €55, River Island
That 70’s Show
A Fedora hat, dark wash flared denims from Asos Curve, and a faux fur and suede gillet. These are all key pieces that you can re wear time, and time again to give any look in your wardrobe a twist of 70’s spirit. Fedora, €89, Asos/ Flares, €48, Asos/ Gillet, €82, Asos
The ‘wish,wish,wish’ item: The Burberry Mac
The Burberry Mac is of course the wardrobe stable for a lifetime and recently I discovered the designer brand in fact go up to a size 18 which I was thrilled to see. While beige is the signature colour, black for me sings ultimate functionality. Mac, €1600, Burberry
