Getting all Autumnal!
Gone are the days when wearing a vest and cardi was classed as layering. These days it’s actually an art form, and never more so than during Autumn/Winter London Fashion Week. We saw double blazers (one worn, the other slung over the shoulders), ponchos, and shirt dresses worn as jackets.
Do you still have a poncho from last time around? Why not dig it out. Team it with a matching bobble hat for an up-to-date look. Did you purchase a long sleeved denim dress last season? Try wearing it open, over a pair of trousers and t-shirt.
Remember though, that extra clothes add bulk so stick to thin layers!
Ladies in Red
Red is going to be a huge trend this season (when is it not?). Sometimes a splash of a fashion colour is all that is needed to update your style.
Before hitting the shops, check your wardrobe because you may already have something suitable.

All about checks
The heritage and check trend isn’t going anywhere this season. Even luckier for you if you bought into this last year.
If you don’t want to invest in an expensive item such as a jacket or coat, buy a checked scarf. Make sure that the colours are flattering and you will have a brand new look for a few pounds.
Scarf featured is from Oliver Bonas.
Fashion designers are making it very easy to be sustainable this year, as pleats are featuring heavily again. So don’t part with yours just yet. Try wearing it differently this season; ankle boots with a pleated skirt or dress; mix with unexpected (but flattering) colours; style with an oversized sweater.
Pleats can add volume so make sure yours flatters your body shape.
I hope that gives lots of food for thought!
