One of the best things about the summer ending is the autumn/winter fashion hitting the rails with gusto.

And with budgets squeezed, it pays to buy the right pieces for season-long style.

Help is at hand from Ballymena's leading retail outlet, Fairhill Shopping Centre, and we have a sneak peek at key trends from a range of its retailers, including Debenhams, Miss Selfridge, M&S, Dorothy Perkins and Oasis - all available in-store now.

ANIMAL MAGIC: From abominable snow jackets, to shearling, to furry gilets, a warm and furry cover-up should be your top buy for AW15.

LADY IN RED: From scarlet to ketchup to ruby - be bright and bold in this ultimate glam shade.

GOTHIC GLAM: Channel your inner 19th century beauty by combining dramatic deep berry lips with pale skin alongside pretty lace, high ruffled necklines and floor-skimming skirts.

VELVET VIXEN: Ramp up the glam factor with one of the most luxurious fabrics of the season. If you aren't daring enough for a full velvet suit, then rich coloured trimmings of velvet on capes and cocktail dresses will still look great.

HIGH & MIGHTY: When it comes to turtlenecks, the higher the better. Whether striped, cashmere or with a full cuff, for extra style brownie points, tuck into high-waisted trousers.

EIGHTIES: Pretty polka dots, power shoulder pads, fierce leather and retro ruffles are hitting the high street in a big way.

Pick up these trends at Fairhill's Ladies Lock-In event on Tuesday, September 29, from 6-9pm, when shoppers will get discounts on new season fashion, alongside huge giveaways, pop-up beauty boutiques, complimentary treats and more.
