7 Wardrobe Transformers

Want an instant update to your look? From the hottest high street steals to the most coveted designer gems, feast your fabulously fashion-savvy eyes on these wise wardrobe buys. Time to shop…
Culottes, €49.95 at zara.com

Culottes, €49.95, zara.com

To anyone who thought culottes were a passing trend, you were wrong. The trouser of the year shows no sign of fading, which is understandable when you note the super flattering calf length of this latest print style from Zara. Slip on the co-ordinating long-line sleeveless jacket for an upgraded matchy-matchy look.

Wild cat tunic dress Stella McCartney, €745, ?brownthomas.com

A myriad of animal patterns prowl the autumn catwalks but we’re in love with this wild cat motif print dress by Stella McCartney. Yes it’s expensive but the occasion opportunities (wedding, parties, work dos…) are endless. Not to mention its conversation-starting power.

Jumper, Bella Freud, €355 at matchesfashion.com

Jumper, Bella Freud, €355, matchesfashion.com

Every wardrobe needs a classic crew neck knit with a twist. It should be cosy and require no styling so you can wear it with boyfriend jeans on Saturday or a leather pencil for work. Bella Freud’s merino-wool signature sweaters have a cult following (including K Moss) and somehow manage to be cool, timeless and smart.

Gold earrings with blue Swavorski skull, €65, momuse.ie

 

Way more street than your normal chandelier earring, these jangling beauties from Momuse are both sparkly and subversive. And just the ticket for that off-the-shoulder top you’ve already bought.

Time to rethink your ballet flats. It’s all about pointy toes and ankle straps now. Elegant and practical, these ones from Topshop will look terrific with everything from cropped trousers to rolled up jeans.

Faux fur gilet, €90 at riverisland.com

Faux fur gilet, €90, riverisland.com

No one does wearable 70’s bohemia like River Island. This autumn expect lashings of velvet, suede, fringing and muted florals while this retro inspired fur gilet promises to be one of the hottest buys on the high street.
