Oasis AW 2015

Audrey Hepburn had her own classic style and I have Oasis.  Oasis is my favourite shop and it has been for years.  If you ask me what I am wearing its usually almost head to toe in Oasis.  Every season Oasis is my go to shop and I have been known to browse online a number of times a day (obsessively).  One of the things that I love about Oasis is they take current trends (for instance this seasons 70ies obsession) and they make the trend a classic.  If you buy a "trend" piece from Oasis its not going to look dated by the end of the season, the quality of the clothes mean you will have the pieces for years to come.

This Autumn/Winter Oasis have taken on a nostalgic vibe with the theme of the collection being "Welcome to my Hometown".  There are some statement pieces like this Mongolian fur trimmed coat which can be styled (with flares) for full on 70ies nostalgia or toned down for a chic modern look.
A denim dress is a classic wardrobe staple (and Oasis make excellent denim, their jeans are amazing and a staple in my wardrobe).


The festive season is arriving in Oasis and that means plenty of sparkle.  Oasis know how to make a sparkly number and you would have this beautiful gray sequin dress in your wardrobe for years.  The long sleeves cover bingo wings and the v neck makes it exceptionally flattering.  If your like me and the cold makes the idea of going out in a dress a NO GO Oasis are brilliant for sparkly tops that can dress up a pair of jeans in a second.  This tends to be my go to festive look.

Gray is a colour that sounds drab and boring but this look is so chic and classic, the short sleeve coat with slouch boots look expensive and classy.  I have quite a big collection of Oasis coats they make Olivia Pope style coats at an affordable price.  I know you can buy "on trend" boots in Penneys for €20 but your feet feel it.  Oasis boots are so comfortable I can happily wear them all day and they are such good quality you can whip they out season after season. 
This leather mac is so beautiful I love it because it reminds me of a coat my mam is pictured in back in the 70ies.  I have a vintage style brown leather jacket from Oasis from a couple of winters ago and the leather is so beautiful it wears so well.
I was delighted to attend the Autumn Winter preview to see all the goodies and as usual I didn't leave Stephens Green without making a purchase I picked up a Gray Fur Gilet and a pair of fringe boots which I have been living in. 
The staff in Oasis are always lovely especially the girls working in Stephens Green Branch they are so friendly and always look so stylish I have been know to spot something on a staff member and trawl the rails looking for what they are wearing. 

So if I had to pick one shop to wear for the rest of my life (man I will make a stylish old lady) without doubts it would be Oasis.  Oasis clothes go from a size 8 to a size 16 (although some styles go to an 18 online) and I do find that depending on the style and cut some of their dresses don't fit me (I am a size 14 - 16 but a fuller 16 after having the baby) especially across the chest so I tend to go for separates.

So my top tip for Oasis Autumn Winter is to head to their coats and boots and you will find you wont be able to stop there. 

Man I love Oasis.

  1. Love those Boots! Oasis always have pretty stuff, I find it hard to not buy at least one thing from their jewellery stand every time I pass as well!
