Top 5 Picks for A/W15

Summer in Galway this year has been somewhat of a let down. We just haven’t scored the hot, sunny weather of the past couple of years unfortunately. Because of this, the high Summer product we’ve seen in stores just hasn’t felt as enticing or wearable as it should have. So even though I’m hoping there’s still a little sunshine waiting for us, I’m beginning to get excited about the season ahead. 

The Autumn/Winter collections from our high street faves promise to be stronger than ever and for me, some firm favourites are already emerging. I struggled to find Spring/Summer pieces that a) I was mad about and b) I could adapt for the wet, windy weather. But I’ve come across too many amazing new season pieces already that I know are going to go the distance. So here’s a list of my top 5 favourite trends for A/W15, ready for you to shop now!
