Five looks we love from Penneys' new season collection

Freya Drohan

No need to break the bank in order to breathe some life into your new season wardrobe.

Thankfully, high street hero Penneys is on-the-money.

Shoppers looking to indulge in some staples that will instantly update their closet will be glad to know that Penneys' A/W collection has taken inspiration from the likes of Marc Jacobs, Chloe and Burberry.

The collection is full of new romantic coats, glam-rock shaggy fur jackets, 1970s inspired peasant dresses, crochet separates and chunky footwear.

Here are five looks from the new range that we can't wait to get our hands on.

We love the way the style team paired this Edwardian-collar lace blouse with a sultry skirt complete with thigh-high split. And we can guarantee that there'll be a queue forming when these elegant lace-up heels and berry-suede satchel land in stores too.

(Blouse €17, skirt €10, bag €14, shoes €26.)

The new season update on the love affair with all things bohemian - the 1970s glam-goth dress. We are big fans of this mid-length claret number, especially when paired with wooden clogs and disco-inspired glittery socks.

(Dress €30, socks €2, shoes €22.)

Are you ready for a riot of textures? Fur gilets, suede details and sumptuous hues of tan re-appear in shops every Autumn, but with this outfit, not to mention that blunt-style hair-do on the model, Penneys still manage to make it look fresh and modern.

(Gilet €30, turtle neck €10, maxi skirt €19, saddle bag €12, boots €25.)

When this dress debuted during the fashion show at the recent Dublin Fashion Festival launch, we couldn't believe it wasn't from a high-end designer. Body-con dresses and revealing crop tops are a thing of the past; this demure lace dress with its androgynous neck-tie is far sexier when paired with bare legs and Chelsea boots.

(Coat €35, dress €28, boots €25.)

No, it's not Dolce and Gabanna. Although you'd be forgiven for thinking that this dramatic lace-panelled maxi was from one of Domenico and Stefano's inspired collections. Channel your inner Florence Welsh by wearing with lace up boots and layered jewellery, or play dress up as a Sicilian Senorita with costume earrings and a jewelled clutch bag.
