Country Road unveils AW16

AW16 at Country Road is all about the late 60s, laid back silhouettes and rich autumnal shades. Floaty blouses, light weight knits and loose fitting shift dresses reinforces the lack back sense of style inherent in the label’s collections.

The new season sees autumnal tones of rust, cognac, burnt orange in contrasting textures of suede, denim, mohair and leather while bold paisley prints, geometric florals and monochrome are the patterns of the season.

If you’re a fan of this season’s most sought after trend- wide-leg pants and off shoulder tops- Country road has pieces to pair up for any occasion. If you’re going out to lunch keep the look refined. Pair a fitted, striped off shoulder top with a flare pant and a suede clog. Achieve a subtle look in the office with an off shoulder knit and a cropped, wide-leg pant and a peep-toe mule for added height. For evenings out, pair a black tailored flare with a longline vest and a soft suede platform heel.

For those who love the Victoriana trend, there are plenty of pieces inspired by this 19th century movement including necklines with shirring, ruching and pintucking.

The new season’s accessories also reflect the mood of the late 60s and early 70s with slouchy leather hobo bags, belts and jewellery with tassel detailing, and print bandanas. Finish off your ensemble with that extra hippie touch with Country Road’s collection of knee-high tan leather boots, clogs and moccasins.

Country Road AW16 collection is now in-store at Garden City.
