So yeah, Uh remember me? Sorry about my extended break! Back to business! Hey! Yesterday I was invited along to Westfields London (that's the White City/Shepherds Bush one) to shop some of the Autumn Winter Trends. Westfields are launching a AW12 event kicking off on Thuresday with my favourite night of the Fashion calendar, Vouge Fashion's Night Out. You can find out all about the events on the Westfields website. While I was there we filmed a video that should be going live in the next few days so I'll keep you posted on that! They set me the task of styling out Metallics which excited me to no end!

Metallic's is always one of my favourite autumn winter trends purely because I quite like how luxe but grunge it can look depending on how you style it out. Despite being popular for most of this year I really get excited with them when it comes to AW. I think it works so well on wintery pieces like, big chunky knits with metallic thread's to pair with sequinned shorts and metallic nail polishes. You can use it as a accent by pairing a pair of embellished shorts with a oversized black jumper or even adding a metallic peter pan collar to a simple t-shirt. Or you can me like me and do a full metallic outfit styled down for daytime with the slouchy fit jumper, boots and leather jacket. I think the key to daytime metallics is pairing it down with loose fitting jumpers block colours or accessorising them as accents to make it more subtle. As for nightime looks I'd just go as crazy as I could, nothing better than a bit of sparkle on a night out! Tonight, I'm wearing this outfit to some events and I personally think the look just oozes autumn winter cosiness with that luxe edge.

Tomrorow I'm doing all sorts for Vogue Fashion's Night Out so I'll be around Central London (Bond Street etc) for most of the evening. If your around do come say Hi! I'll probably have had a few glasses of fizz by then so won't be such a awkward turtle!
