Watching your teenager get into a car for their first lesson is terrifying. You know how dangerous some drivers can be, and you probably know the statistics around young people crashing. However, you know that they need to learn to drive, and you just have to be brave and trust that they’ll make the right calls. There is one thing you can do to help keep them safe – other than investing in a very good driving instructor – and that’s finding them a car that ticks all the safety boxes. Of course, your teenager will want something fun, stylish and sporty, but that’ll be the least of your concerns. Remember, once they see how much insurance is, they’ll be happy with anything. To keep both you and your teenager happy, here’s a few ways to strike the right balance between safety and style.

How to Choose Your Teenager’s First Car

We’ve only just said hello to summer but with fashion, it’s never too early to plan ahead and with trends coming and going, it’s wise to consider what autumn is going to offer. Once the summer has passed and the leaves begin to turn brown, dressing can become difficult – it’s too cold for a t-shirt, but possibly too warm for a winter coat. Influenced by the excitement of an evening in the city, belted coats, fishnets and vintage-inspired fur coats are all returning to our wardrobes this autumn.  
Here, we give you the lowdown on how to style these fashion must-haves to help you glide effortlessly through autumn.

The power style

One power style that is set to go global by September is the female suit. Need we say anything else?
Not only does it keep you warm during the colder months, it also produces a look that is powerful – girl power is back! Elegantly designed slacks and pressed double-breasted jackets are all the rage this autumn; together with pronounced shoulders and shoulder-width trousers, the suit helps to reappropriate a masculine look for the female fashion-forward. Don’t worry, this isn’t a return of the 80s; it’s power-dressing in 2017.

Wrinkle-free outerwear

Nylon jackets are in! Whatever the occasion. Whether you’re going to a festival, or walking through town, a nylon coat is the transitional outerwear that you’ve been looking for. Without fear of any wrinkles, this type of coat is similar to a mac and can be packed away in your suitcase to take to any event without any hassle.
These cutting-edge jackets can be worn day and night – pair with some J Brand jeans and switch between a pair of flats during the day and a pair of funky heels by night and you’ll be ready for any event. Blacks, browns and greens are all in this autumn – so wear subtle colours underneath to pull off a look that’s striking without having to make the effort.
