It may feel as if summer has yet to begin for those of you like myself living in England, but designers are already hitting the runways with their AW12 collections, including Topshop Unique. As a huge Topshop lover I constantly stay updated with their designers, clothing and campaign's which is why I wanted to show you what Topshop Unique are bringing to the highstreet this autumn/winter as well as sharing my personal top picks from the collection. The garments feature a repeated cross pattern throughout the collection on gorgeous silks and cosy wools, giving a cool, minimalistic and classy vibe.
"A riot of rich autumnal hues endorsed with heavy textural intrigue. Soldier on with strictly utilitarian pieces from oversized shirts, army boots to this seaon’s signature motif. In the words of our creative Director, Kate Phelan – ‘Relax it, mix it up!’" - Topshop
1. Burgundy Longline Coat, £295 (buy here)
I am a sucker for anything in the colour burgundy, especially for autumn/winter as it's so in keeping with the season, which is why this long winter coat is one of my favourite picks from the new Topshop Unique collection. This oversized long coat has been updated with purposely visible zips for a twist on this classic style of coat - slip into a pair of Victorian style boots for the perfect match.
2. Cross Print Step Trousers, £120 (buy here)
These trousers remind me of the patterns seen within 70s interior (in a good way) and makes a nice change to wearing jeans during the winter months - pair with some black flats and a plain tee for a sleek, professional look.
3. Silk Roll Neck Dress, £95 (buy here)
This piece is so simple but I love it! A dress like this gives you the choice to either layer up for warmth on those breezy autumnal days or add a simply item of jewellery with tights and heels for a girly, minimalistic look at night.
