Last week, I attended the Debenhams AW15 press day in Glasgow. Just a quick glance at the fashion displays told you what trend Debenhams were picking up and running with this Autumn/Winter- 70s boho (as seen on the catwalk from Burberry Prorsum, Matthew Williamson and Anna Sui). There is definitely the hippie element in there, but this season’s hippies are doing their thing in rich and sumptuous fabrics such as suede and silk.
I am loving this look, and I fell in love with multiple items at the press day. Bang on trend is the new collection from Sienna Miller’s sister. Nine by Savannah Miller just screams the 1970s with its fringing, feathers and fabulous fabrics. I love her khaki green duffle bag with beaded embellishments (£89).
Faith are also a surprising winner on the accessories front this season- their fringed bucket bags (£65) are to-die-for, and check out those boots (£75)! I’m not brave enough for them to adorn my feet, but praise to those who do decide to rock them.

Coats and jackets this season are, not surprisingly, predominantly of the faux fur and sheepskin varieties. Sleeveless ones layered over warm knits are going to be everywhere. You’ll also notice that the colour palette is all part of the marsala family (burnt oranges, browns and muddy reds). As dictated by Pantone, marsala is definitely the colour of 2015. The dark orange tweed-style coat with faux fur collar (£59 from Red Herring) will keep you warm and stylish all through the next few months.

Vintage floral and Native American Indian prints on light floaty silk and chiffon tops and dresses are everywhere too, and Debenhams’ own brand Red Herring have produced some amazing pieces. I also love this orange floral print top from H! by Henry Holland (£35) and this deep pink one from Star by Julien Macdonald (£45). These are perfect for layering to get that classic 70s retro look, especially if they have a pussybow neck thrown in for good measure.
