Style inspiration: DKNY

Another favourite show of mine this season was DKNY - certainly one of the more wearable collections of the season, dubbed the 'New York Mods', it epitomises the effortless style of New York and the girls who live and shop there.

The collection had the androgynous touch which pervades many an AW collection with chunky shoes, trilby hats and boy-fit blazers but there were still flashes of girlishness in pleats and 60's style collared dresses.

Colour is fresh and similar shades are placed together for a subtle colour blocking look. Bright knitwear is key, I love the fox-orange oversized cardi and the pink and red colour block jumper (N.B - F&F at Tesco do a great version of this for under £20!).

The standout piece of the collection for me was the colour block coral, orange, black and tan pleated maxi dress, dressed down for the show with a polo neck but would look amazing with heels and and some costume jewellery for evening, a la Olivia P.

The details of the show are easy to incorporate into your AW look: chunky coloured knits, mini skirts, chunky ankle boots and natural, just washed hairstyles.

For me, DKNY gets stronger each season and this is a great collection for the style-conscious big city girl with cash to splash.
