As the air cools and the leaves turn gold, we're lusting after the latest trends and beauty launches inside our glossiest titles. Sarah from The Fashion Ache takes us through her inspiring stylish AW16 wish list, straight from the pages of her Elle magazine subscription...
Sometimes you just can't BEAT flicking through a glossy, especially when pay day finally comes round the corner. This month ELLE's October 2016 issue really had me rethinking my mental shopping wish list. With the title's endless supply of new season inspiration, jam-packed shopping pages and glorious layouts it's hard not to fall in love with everything showcased on the magazine's pages… From coveting Chanel's 'The New No.5 Leau' fragrance to lusting after Saint Laurent's glittering bag in midnight blue, there's something for everyone's taste. Check out my ELLE-inspired wish list below for my five favourite picks from the issue!
#1 The Fragrance
Chanel's new fragrance, 'The New No.5 Leau' has arrived and every girl and woman out there wants it. This fragrance (with a name that just breathes chic and is so signature to Chanel) takes the heritage of the classic perfume and gives it a contemporary twist for the 2016/17 woman. Flipping through ELLE's luxe pages I couldn't help but instantly add this little beauty to the absolute top of my wish list (especially with Christmas glimmering enticingly on the horizon).
#2 The Bag
ELLE's Accessories Editor, Donna Wallace nails it in the October 2016 issue with her 'Donna's details' page. I love how this feature is put together visually and I'm especially smitten with No.2 on her details list! The Jimmy Choo leather bag with incredible detail and gold chain; it's amazing! Not sure how well this wish list entry will go down with my husband but I'm certainly popping it on there!
#3 A Touch of Silver
Metallic silver is set to be HUGE for AW16, so I'm definitely going to be giving a nod to the trend with this amazing Kurt Geiger silver handbag. This little beauty will work perfectly with everything in your wardrobe, from your favourite tired denim skinny jeans to a tailored little white dress!
#4 The Nail Colour
I really love the beauty section in ELLE Magazine, especially when it comes to their glossy layouts and page designs. This single page spread was dedicated to the team's 'The Essential Kit', and with its warming autumnal hues and alluring lipstick and nail lacquer shades one can't help but start lusting after AW16. I particularly love (and will buy immediately) Burberry's nail polish in 'Dark Trench'! Such a luxe, sophisticated colour, perfect for transitioning between the seasons with.
#5 A Little Glitter
You'll also love discovering ELLE's 'The Piece' sections each month. I adore this amazing Saint Laurent bag in glittering midnight blue featured in the October issue. Who would be able to resist this as party season draws ever closer!
ELLE is the perfect subscription to purchase if you're looking for that all-important monthly style inspiration. It's the ideal companion for helping you tailor your shopping list as we move through the seasons!
