This is the second in the series looking at what's on offer at Matalan for autumn/winter. Today I'm focusing on the footwear and accessories collections I saw at their recent press day.
The shoes had me mesmerised for ages! There were so many gorgeous styles perfect for the season. I was happy to see lots of leopard print, metallics and stud detailing!
The metal toe capped cigarette heels in black were my favourite pair on display. They're perfect for glamming up an outfit and I know I'd wear them lots! I really loved the purple and black velvet heels with the bow detail too. There were Chelsea style boots in leopard print and a glittery black pair perfect for the season.
Stud detailing continues through to their shoe collection for autumn/winter with studded trainers and these gorgeous nude studded heels. I really liked the leopard loafers. They looked really comfy and are a great way to wear a subtle touch of leopard print.
There were lots of metallics too, these silver laced brogues caught my eye. The leopard print flatforms may be the ideal pair for me to venture into the world of flatforms and try out the trend. I really liked the shape of the slipper style ballet pumps. They come in a range of designs for the season including gold, snakeskin patterned and a retro floral print pair.
I'm a big fan of all the decorative necklaces and collars around at the moment. They're the perfect accessory to add a touch of glamour and transform a plainer outfit. I really liked the pretty sequin peter pan collar. The beaded black necklace is ideal for pairing with your favourite LBD and is a purse friendly £8.00!
The fox and cat satchels were popular at the press day and looked really cute. They also have leather satchels with a vintage style buckle fastening in a range of colours. The tan and black zipped tassel shopper looks ideal if you have lots to carry around during the day. I really liked the large envelope clutch, they're perfect for fitting lots in for a night out and an essential during party season! The soft black leather satchel with gold studded detailing reminded me of the popular Mulberry Alexa.
