Why hello there Autumn! Is it just me or have the temperatures started to plummet?! Just as well I have this next blog for you to read over a hot cup of coffee in the sunshine.

Why hello there Autumn! Is it just me or have the temperatures started to plummet?! Just as well I have this next blog for you to read over a hot cup of coffee in the sunshine.

It goes without saying, Autumn fashion is all about those extra layers, adding jackets to your lighter fabrics, ankle boots and knits - but how about I set you some homework and give you four Autumn fashion trends to give a whirl this season?

STAY IN CHECK

While on the topic of jackets, the must-have this season is the oversized check or plaid jacket. An easy way to update any classic outfit, the check blazer is a sure winner with its traditional neutral colour palette and longer length (to keep your kidneys warm as my Grandmother would point out) and take you from easy weekend jeans and tee to the office teamed with trousers and silken blouse.

INTO THE WILD

Python print has never really dated but this season we are seeing it everywhere, particularly with a colour twist.
If you’re like me and have shied away from anything ‘animal’, start with accessories such as a small clutch or belt or make a statement in footwear.

GET YA PINS OUT

Yeah, I know it’s cold but it’s not THAT cold……just yet. The days are still warm in that afternoon sunshine and thanks to the invention of fake tan, we can keep the pins out a little longer, right? Leave your jeans, this season is all about le’ skirt - in fact, suede and corduroy to be exact.

Slightly above the knee, subtle A line works for most people and being suede or cord, you will snug as bug in a rug.

SCARVES 'N SCRUNCHIES

Ah, the days of my childhood where my scrunchie collection almost outnumbered by sticker collection. This season is all about accessorising your hair with scrunchies or small scarves. Have fun with colour and don’t shy away from anything patterned. This is an easy as pie way to add a little statement to your outfit.

Scarves can be tied around your ponytail, worn as a headband, around your neck or simply tied to your handbag.

Remember, this year is all about being a little bolder and braver - what trend are you going to try this Autumn?
