Autumn must-haves

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.

Blue is the IT colour

As we wave goodbye to the sunshine, we also wave goodbye to the summer pinks and scarlets, transitioning to dusky blues for the autumn season. Labelled as the new ‘it’ colour, the moody notes incorporated by dark blues within an outfit can really make a lasting impression. Wear a pale blue shirt with slim-fitting grey trousers for an outfit that is subtle yet striking, or why not try a brighter coloured blue mac to create a contrast between your outfit and the autumnal environment around you?

Show off your waist

This autumn, we are loving belted coats which accentuate your waist. It is an ideal statement piece to keep warm whilst strolling through the park. Expressing effortless sophistication, the belt adds an extra layer of depth to your coat and helps to define your waistline in a way that is flattering. Whether you decide to wear a statemented fur jacket, or opt for a for a leather trench coat – the belt is a refining piece within this ensemble, which can be knotted or fastened depending on your look.
It’s not only belted coats which are in – anything with a waist belt that shows off your waist is in! Wide waisted belts are making an appearance this autumn; they can be worn over your coat, or, they can be added to an evening dress that will help to define your curves. Browns, blacks and reds are colours that aren’t only popular, but help you to channel the natural colours of the season.
