Shop for the latest AW trends at into Lakeside

FROM NOW until the 15th September, intu Lakeside will become the home from home for fashionistas across Essex as it welcomes back its style garden. However, this time the style garden is back with a new theme…Autumn/Winter.

As well as free fashion shows from intu Lakeside’s retailers for customers to enjoy on Friday 9, Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 September, visitors to the centre can also make the most of intu Lakeside’s complimentary personal stylist sessions and book a one to one appointment with one of the team.

intu Lakeside’s Senior Personal Stylist, Carlene Noel, has shared the top trends for A/W and her tips for dressing for the cooler weather. With over 250 stores to shop from, intu Lakeside is the perfect destination to shop for your new wardrobe.

Animal Print:

Release your inner fierceness with the animal print trend and embrace the statement pieces. Whether you opt for zebra, leopard or snake, there’s a print to suit everybody.

An easy way to introduce animal print to your wardrobe is through accessories and Next has plenty to go around. With everything from snake print stilettoes to a zebra print scarf, Next is fully embracing the animal trend.

Purple Reign:

Purple, mauve, violet, lavender, the list goes on. This season purple is set to take over and with so many purple shades available there’s plenty of items to choose from including coats, boots and handbags in a shade to suit every skin tone.

Add a pop of colour to any outfit with a gorgeous purple lipstick from Givenchy or a bright eye shadow from Urban Decay.


A fabulously British trend is making a comeback this AW and the best part about it is that it’s a trend that looks great but keeps you warm when the colder day’s strike too. Think beautiful autumnal colours, knee high leather boots and countryside chic, this look is a guaranteed hit.

For the men, embrace this trend and look dapper in an eccentric tweed suit from Marks and Spencer which is perfect for a day in the office or dinner out with friends. For the daytime, opt for a tweed jacket to keep it smart but casual.

Velvet Dreams:

Velvet oozes sophistication and is a fantastic look that can easily be dressed up or down come day or night.

Team a velvet dress with a pair of leather boots to create a glam rock look that will turn heads…for all the right reasons. This season, velvet will be big in stores such as New Look, Topshop and River Island.

Midnight Sparkle:

Everybody needs a little sparkle in their lives and this season is the perfect time to shine bright as the sparkle trend has well and truly arrived.

With plenty of sparkle to go around in Zara and House of Fraser, it’s the perfect excuse to dazzle everybody in a stunning sparkly dress. Christmas is only around the corner and it is party season after all…
