AW12 Trend Report- High Street Edit

The new season trend report is one of my favourite posts to write, even though we are just finally being able to wear our summer wardrobe it is really exciting to start looking at what we will be lusting after in the winter months!
I must confess to being a sun girl, I love the warmth and the laid back easy fashion of the summer months. However, when I saw the Fashion Weeks back in February I knew we were in for a very stylish back end to the year.
This AW12 trends are very bold and opulent with real glamour and style. This winter we are going to be able to celebrate the our figures in beautiful shapes and structured pieces with permission to embrace black once more! 
I have gone through the high streets new seasons collections to pick out some of my favourite pieces that help bring some of the main designer looks to us for this winter, without the designer price tag!
