Australian brand Cotton On has just released a limited edition high fashion range “CO. by Cotton On” to be sold exclusively online, and we’re celebrating with a $400 CO. by Cotton On wardrobe to giveaway.
Designed and developed for fashion devotees, CO. by Cotton On features more elevated styling and fabrics but retains Cotton On’s affordability.
So who better to ask for exclusive fashion tips for Autumn/Winter 2012 than their Trend Director, Gavin Gage. Here’s what we have to look forward to this season…
What are your favourite CO. by Cotton On looks and why?
We are loving our metallic cable knit jumper! Metallic is a buzz word around the office right now and teamed back with our knitted pencil skirt it is a perfect yet sexy winter warmer. An edgier fave is our printed mullet top with spliced bloomer. The extreme mullet in a statement print is a lust-have from desk to dance floor.
What is Autumn/Winter 2012 all about? And what are your styling tips for the season?
AW12 is all about channeling your inner vixen. Silhouettes are inspired by the 40s & 50s. Pencil skirts, peter pan collars and peplum tops provide the flattering silhouettes to achieve your prim and polished winter look.
Add a twist to ladylike pieces by choosing sheer fabrics or peek-a-boo lace. Contrast paneled pieces such as the Clemence peplum top create a slimming illusion.
What are the key colours this season?
Mandarin red, teal & wine burgundies. These colours are still prevalent on international catwalks today. Classic black & white is still as strong as ever.
What is the one must-have this season?
A pop colour toggle coat. This is a statement piece that will update this season’s winter wardrobe. We especially love the contrast buttons and trims.
What¹s the best way to interpret catwalk looks in your everyday style?
Pick your favorite catwalk pieces and team back with your wardrobe staples. Work our Cindy longline printed shirt back with your fave skinny jeans, tuck it in and add a metallic belt for your own catwalk interpretation. The most important thing is - Be confident!
