I have browsed through the NEXT UK press catalogue and collected some images for you which are an everyday version of some of the trends this autumn as we run up toward Christmas.  All of the goods are available until late December 2005.  When the NEXT sale starts NEXT always reduces all items by at least 50% so there are always long queues on the first sale day.

Knitwear Trends 2006

Fairisle Pattern Stripe Sweater 100% lambswool. Sizes 8 - 20 943-057-X36 £24.99. Moleskin Trousers 98% cotton 2% Lycra® elastane. Regular 6R - 20R, Long 8L - 20L, Extra Long 8XL - 18XL, 948-017-X36 £36.99. Featured Accessories Silver Coloured Double Circle Cord Necklace £4.99.Embroidered Wool Wrap. £28.99. 976763.Peruvian scarf set. £16.99. 955015.Strong trends in knitwear this fall winter include the elongated and often asymmetrically styled cardigan. This is always a useful garment in the UK climate as shopping in winter in centrally heated stores can be a stifling experience when the stores are crowded.  When shoppers travel into town by car they are often totally inside a mall or store and don't always need a full coat.  This is where the long cardigan with scarf tails or cable knit to knee coat comes into play. 

On a warm early autumn day a ribbed cropped shrug knit, gilet or sweater may be enough.  For colder days add some headwear and a fun folkloric fashion scarf.   Folkloric and Inca inspiration is seen in scarves either with crafted bobbles - bobbles were thought delightful at Burberry by the show models or with Bulgarian style rose embroidery.

Above left we we have homage to folkloric fair isle and floral embroidery as techniques.  NEXT Fairisle Pattern Stripe Sweater in 100% lambswool is £24.99. Sizes 8 - 20, 943-057-X36. Moleskin Trousers £36.99, 6R - 20Reg, 8L - 20L, Extra Long 8XL - 18XL, 948-017-X36.   Above centre - Peruvian scarf set. £16.99. 955015.  Above far right - Wool Wrap with Embroidery, £28.99. 976763.

As an alternative to skirts, you can opt for trouser combinations from skinny jeans to the still popular and very leg flattering bootcut trouser lines which flatter the leg and the way footwear appears beneath.  For those who find skinny jeans a nightmare be assured there are still plenty of alternative styles around including straight legged trousers as opposed to drainpipe styles as well as cropped trouser versions.

For work lots of combos here will work well for you, from the tailored sharp suit to the waistcoat teamed with cropped pants or any variety of skirts. You will know what is acceptable at your place of work.

A good winter coat should last 2 to 3 seasons.  Cheaper coats may only last one season and more expensive coats may last up to 5 seasons dependant on frequency of wear. For this reason it's important to choose a coat with classic elements when planning your wardrobe if like most people you need to consider a budget. nylon 5% cashmere. Lining 51% acetate 49% viscose.

Mandarin Collar Tops Three Pack  Pack consists of one each of Black, White and Pale Blue. 95% cotton 5% Lycra® elastane. Sizes 6 - 22. 950-267-X36, £21.99. Black Velvet Trousers 100% cotton.

Black Velvet Clutch Bag, 963-387-X36 £10.99 Many women despise the top of their arms so this is where a lace sleeve can be feminine and attractive whilst covering up imperfect arms for whatever reason.  Tops with three quarter sleeves also give the wearer an opportunity to show arms decorated with bracelets without feeling bare or cold.  Likewise a velvet jacket is opulent and yet can be a comfort blanket for those who don't wish to be too exposed. The square neckline has a newness to it as we become bored with plunging necklines.  If you still want to retain a bare effect opt for an almost there small shrug like the sequin version below or for standing around outside on chilly nights the faux fur jacket above might be more useful.Item : Midnight Blue Sequin Tie Front Cardigan (970-309-X36) £34.99. 100% viscose.Sizes XS - XL.

So you've read all the fashion reports you can find across the internet and devoured every fashion magazine and newspaper article going and you are still wondering how you will literally make the new looks fit your looks.  These examples above might be just what you seek. Very much a middle road and you'll probably be able to wear the items next year too.  Could it be then that is the reason that www.next.co.uk and NEXT shops throughout the UK are so popular with the masses is that they are tuned in to Ms Average woman. 

Sizing at NEXT

NEXT spans a large size range catering for petite figures to tall figures as well as regular and fuller sizes.  Some styles have shorter or longer sleeve, trouser or skirt lengths. The sizes range from UK sizes 8 to 22 (which are about 2 sizes smaller than American sizing) all dependant on product item, but larger women may find they can be fashionably accommodated.

NEXT produces clothing which pays homage to fashion changes, but which still has a classic edge that makes it very wearable.  They have done a home delivery service for 20 years and so they understand the needs of speedy delivery and return of goods by demanding customers, with very busy lives.   But as always, if you really fancy an item either in store, online or casually browsing the NEXT catalogue at home, then shop for it well before a great item gets sold out.
