Three Trends You Need To Try This Season: The Slip-On Sneaker, The 'Teddy Bear' Coat & The Slip Dress

The Slip On Sneaker

Autumn/Winter's answer to the Birkenstock. The Slip-on sneaker is comfortable, easy and wearable with just about anything. Celine's Slip-on sneaker (inspired by the original Vans footwear) became popular amongst fashion bloggers this year and has since sparked an increase of slip-ons being sold everywhere. Even Vans Classic Checkerboard Trainers (which I haven't worn since 2005) are returning to the scene and can be seen on various streetstyle blogs. With an endless choice of leathers, skins, colours and patterns, you are guaranteed to find a sneaker which will carry you through into the new year! Whistles Lena Slip-On Trainer has to be one of my favourites and comes in a dusty pink or a black and white patterned calf hair - perfect!

The Teddy Bear Coat
The 'Teddy Bear' Coat trend has taken off with the likes of Carine Roitfeld and Kim K wearing Max Mara's Carrara Coat - which has now become one of this Season's Must-have items. Topshop and Zara are selling similar coats but with an affordable price tag - However, you cannot beat the over-sized fit, large masculine lapels and subtle cocoon shape (not to mention a soft mix of alpaca and mohair) of Max Mara's now iconic coat.  

The Slip Dress

One of my favourite trends this season is the slip dress (or lingerie-style dress). The combination of the spaghetti strap, lace trim and silky material makes this dress a sexy yet understated piece that can be dressed up or down! I personally love the slip dress layered over knitwear to give a grungey take on the trend. Click Here to see how I wore this trend (yes, it's a dress folded into a top) contrasting a delicate lace trim with a heavy oversized coat. The slip dress was all over Louis Vuitton's A/W 2013 show and Zara have a wide range of lingerie-style dresses on offer here.

Which is your favourite?


  1. Love this collection! I must admit I've tried all these trends this season, although my old New Look coat and DIY slip dress aren't quite on par with the beautiful Max Mara coat and Louis Vuitton dress! xx

  2. I am loving those slips and I think I might have to try the whistles slip ons! :-)
    Thanks for the bloglovin' follow! :-)

  3. Slip on is definitely the way to go ;D
