Street style offers an unending source of style information and ideas. Here’s the five looks IMAGE fashion director Marie Kelly is buying into for the season.
I can’t get enough of boilersuits this season. I’ve never been an overly enthusiastic wearer of dresses, yet some days, like most other women, I want a one-piece that ticks all the boxes but requires very little effort. My favourite boilersuit on the high street right now is the Topshop Boutique version, below.

White knee-high boots
The best thing I bought last year was a pair of white ankle boots from Office. They brought a modernity and freshness to so many outfits, so this month I’m investing in a pair of white knee-highs. The best pair I’ve seen are from Zara, below.
Leather high heel boots, €119 at Zara
Slouchy trousers have become my new favourite thing to wear, and I love the boyishness that a check pattern brings to this look. I recently found a pair in Atrium in the Powerscourt Townhouse centre, below, which I can’t stop wearing.
Check pants, €129 at Atrium
I like to embrace colour come autumn/winter as it lifts my mood immediately. Last week, I discovered a gorgeous Second Female sweater in Divine boutique in Maynooth, which I love and find goes with everything. It’s not yet on the Divine website (divine.ie), but below is the cardigan version, available from Second Female online.

In all honesty, I buy into burgundy every winter whether it’s a street style hit or not. It suits my complexion and it’s an easy shade to wear with winter’s dark neutrals. I adore this head-to-toe burgundy look, below, from Cos; especially the skirt, which has a wonderfully modern texture to it.
