It's that time again for another big collection from a high street store and today is from Next. Set in the deep dark One Embankment, under Waterloo Bridge, Next presented most of their AW14 collection and I must say how impressed I was with their variety and pieces that could be suitable for all ages. You can see even with these amazing boots above, I can't quite imagine my mum wearing them but I sure would! I am happy to see bold, heavy heeled boots are staying for Autumn as I really love wearing them as a mini person - they give me so much secret height!
I think Next did really well with actual Winter clothes in this collection. From what I have seen over the last few weeks from the high street stores, most pieces seem to not actually think about the bloody weather. The fact that most of year for us Londoner's its freezing, we still want to look and feel good but I have been pretty disappointed by the jumpers. By far the most exciting part of this AW14 preview was the jumpers! Yes finally! I am always loving a cosy knit and Next have them. With so many gorgeous textures and fabrics, I know where I will be heading if I get stuck on the high street for jumpers. I loved their monochrome collections and alot of the jumpers took on a sweatshirt style and fit, which I love.

I am so happy to see Next have made some lovely Midi skirts being the silhouette of AW14 which pared with a cosy knit is the perfect glamorous outfit. With bright coloured blouses and light knits, against lots of beautiful grey heavy woollen tailoring, seemed to be a big feature in the collection. For those colder months, shearling jackets and gilets are everywhere, all in different colours and variations in textures. The ones that I felt were amazing and so soft. I could imagine snuggling up to them in the Winter. I think gilets are great for layering and keeping warm without feeling too constricted, especially when you work in the cold but need your hands free like me.

Overall, I think the collection was very strong and even aspects like their AW14 swimwear was really beautiful, in simple classic shapes and prints. For me it was all about the jumpers and smart cool tops in plenty of different and unusual textures. I love wearing simple disco pants with cosy boots and a smart jumper, which Next could certainly provide. I will certainly be investing a furry gilet, Next is the place to go folks!

What do you think of my little edit of the AW14 collection from Next? Are you a fan?
