Must try harder, Next 5 key pieces A/W 2012 by Michelle of

1. The white shirt
Next shirt in 5 key pieces story by Michelle Hannell

First up is this gorgeous white studded collar shirt (£28). Note the detailing around the collar which is a key look this A/W and a quick way of updating a whole outfit. There’s many ways to wear this one: either with a sexy pencil skirt or tapered trouser or under a crew neck with the collar poking out the top. This white shirt is also a key piece for the monochrome look that is very popular this season.

2. The black trouser

These beauties (£30) aren’t simply just black trousers, oh no siree. Not only are ankle grazers (the ankle is ‘in’ or rather out this season) but they also have an eye-catching Jacquard print which fits in with the brocade trend. The opulence of the fabric is heightened with another key look – the metallic finish. If you’re not brave enough to wear the coated/wet-look jeans that are around these have that appeal without being too OTT. Worn with patent loafers daytime and with heels at night these trousers are extremely versatile.

3. The ankle boot

Boots, glorious boots. This A/W they should be top of your list. These black with gold zip pair (£35) look great thanks to the trendy midi heel and the dangly zip (a detail that is on many-a designer pair). Being a shoe boot means you can wear them with skinny jeans or a skirt. Furthermore, and I’m not sure how you’re going to take this, you can even wear them with an ankle sock neatly folded over the top. I know, I know, it feels wrong but on the right legs in the right place it can not only look right it can rock!

4. The 2-way scarf
Floral/leopard reversible scarf, Next
This gorgeous but equally clever scarf (£14) is a hard-working little fellow. On one side it has a pretty floral patterns whilst on the other it is animal print, another key trend from the A/W 2012 runway. The reversible print means you can get lots of wears out of it and with just a quick change around you can go from flirty florals to sassy animal print in less than five seconds. For colour/pattern phobes scarves are a great way of subtly adding it and you’ll find that it’s just the thing for adding that finishing touch. Oh, and don’t forget there are so many ways you can style a scarf: Wear it loosely knotted around the neck, tie it in a bow or wear it loose and pin with a brooch.

5. The leather jacket
Burgundy leather jacket by Next

Leather is big news for A/W – think skirts, trousers and jackets. Picking up a biker style jacket like this one (£160) is a great idea as it can be so versatile. You can wear it casually with jeans and boots or on a night out with skirts and dresses. The biker style is also slightly fitted so far more flattering than you may imagine. The leather has been given a feminine feel with the burgundy colour which is one hue of the red palette that is a ‘must’ this season. One reviewer on the Next site says it’s ‘Well worth the money’ which is an important point. At £160 it’s not cheap but a good leather jacket should last you for a good few A/Ws to come.
