Let’s face it; one of the best things about the summer ending is the AW trends hitting the rails with gusto. However, if you don’t know your girly frills from your sheer fabrics, help is at hand from Ballymena’s leading retail outlet, Fairhill Shopping Centre as it gives a sneak peek at key trends from a range of its retailers, including Topshop, Miss Selfridge, M&S, Next and River Island; available in-store now.
Either on a jacket, dress or bag, animal print is your first essential buy for AW16. Dark romantic is back and the drama and embellishments make it one of the prettiest looks for the season. Strokable velvet is a killer look and can be worn as coloured, crushed or top-to-toe. Shimmery metallics prove AW16 is the season to shine and ruffles make a return on necklines, hems and even bags and will let you bring out your frivolous side.
Shop these trends at Fairhill’s Ladies Lock-In event on Tuesday 4 October from 6-9pm when shoppers will get discounts on new season fashion alongside huge giveaways, pop-up beauty boutiques, and complimentary treats
