Oasis Autumn Winter 2011/12 Preview

Above the Oasis store on Dublin's St. Stephens Green was the location for my latest preview.

For the Oasis customer texture will be the key to nailing next seasons looks which is a mix of 60's and 70's silhouettes. As we move into Autumn begin delving into these trends with knits, layered over sheers, floaty fabrics, soft leather and tweads. Separates such as skirts and shirts are the pieces to purchase for teaming with your woolly layers. The palette is quiet neutral but the tone is softly warm.

As with most of our favourite highstreet stores Oasis have some amazing vintage inspired pieces for next seasons collection. This palette is richer and boasts some more terrific textures such as fur touches and flecks of gold in the knits - this time to be teamed with strong feminine dresses in retro prints.

This coat has been added to my ever increasing wish list for A/W.........sooo soft, colour is divine and the generous fur collar with matching cuffs are fab.

When we reach the stage of summer having been long forgotten (maybe november??) your local Oasis will be fully equiped with everything you need to get you back in black. Create a monochrome look mixing your blacks with whites and more blacks, or if our summer season has you addicted to colour blocking then splash some red on you dark dependables.

Time to accentuate all these wonderful winter wears with the help of my weakness....accessories - loved their displays!

Some of their new collection has already begun to arrive instores and you can also check out their new arrivals online http://www.oasis-stores.com/ - the embellished fleurie tea dress (shown in my 5th picture accessorised with a fur stole) is available online for €94
