Wednesday Wishlist #19: Matalan AW12

Hi Ladies,

Today I have for you a Wednesday Wishlist with a bit of a twist. At the Carat Media event in Manchester last week, we were all given a little preview booklet of the Matalan AW12 collections. The new collections follow six themes: Gothic Glam, Man's World, Cyber Jam, Heritage, 60's Gamine and Wild Craft. I am very excited about some of the pieces that are going to be available so I thought I would put together this wishlist of my favourites so that you can all have a little peek at what to look forward to.


1. Rucksack £12.00
2. Pleather Skater Skirt £18.00
3. Spiked Denim Shorts £18.00
4. Vintage Print Skirt £18.00
5. Tuxedo Jacket £30.00
6. Fit and Flare Dress £20.00
7. Cropped Jumper £14.00
8. Sequin Trim Blouse £12.00
9. Red Chelsea Boots £16.00
 10. Tapestry Loafers £10.00

I definitely think Matalan have stepped up their game over the last year, I never used to find anything I liked in there but they have been getting it so right lately! If you know me you will know that I am obsessed with anything studded so I love the studded shorts that they are getting in, and the tuxedo jacket is such an edgy, androgynous take on a typical blazer. Matalan are also going a little bit Chelsea Boot crazy next season, and they are bringing them out in red (pictured), black, purple dalmatian print, fuschia, snakeskin and silver glitter!

 So this is just a handful of the things that I love that are going to be in Matalan stores very soon! They have so many more on-trend pieces coming in, such as peplum tops, studded loafers, pyjama-style trousers and collar necklaces! If you would like me to do another post showing you more of the AW12 pieces and going in to a bit more detail about the different collections, let me know in the comments and I will! :)

What do you think so far of the Matalan AW12 collections?
