Hello Autumn!

11th September 2014 | Posted in Womens & Winter Fashion by Hollie Simpson

Autumn is here, cue the leaves, drop in temperature and some sturdy waxed jackets! The change between the Summer and Autumn wardrobe is so huge, we're giving you a few handy tips on what to cruise through the next season wearing and quite simply ditching! Brace yourself for a hue of orange, red and gold amongst sharply cut leather ankle boots, chunky cable knits and luxury Down padded jackets...

This summer has seen a host of blooming florals by Ted Baker, the return of neon with the help of French Connection and summer inspired prints from quirky brand Maison Scotch. Keep your eyes peeled for this season's upcoming trends from a traditional country style to plenty of deep rustic orange shades - the mood board for Autumn could well be even prettier than the summer!

Barbour have released a great country inspired collection this Autumn, with traditional tweeds and tartan check designs. Have fun playing with this look by layering and combining deep colours together. This collection is very Barbour, keeping a British heritage feel within their designs.
The Barbour Badminton Jumper is the perfect combination of colour and pattern. A warm, rustic red shade, the jumper screams Autumn is here! Perhaps a blazer is more your style; the Nutwell Blazer is a favourite season after season. Simply add the jacket to a basic outfit for a quick and easy way to create this country look. Team the blazer with skinny jeans and ankle boots to get the most out of the fitted shape.

Gone are summer's flipflops and sandals and we say a hello to boots, boots and more boots! Whether it be a short ankle boot from J Shoes or a pair of trusty UGGs, a practical pair of boots will ensure your feet stay dry this season.
Though UGG are famed for their sheepskin made, distinctive shaped boots, its worth keeping an eye on the rest of the brand's footwear. Remaining the same great quality and long lasting standard as the original UGG boots, the Zea offer a leather outer that is also waterproof, has a soft sheepskin cuff trimming and a rubber wedge to add slight elevation. Wear the Zea to create a snug winter look with a cable knit jumper such as the Superdry Croyde Cable Crew Jumper or Cable Knit Dress worn with tights.
The Olympias Ankle Boot from J Shoes offer an alternative style. Formed from a neatly cut leather and given a deep purple tarnish; aptly named 'Raisin', the Olympias add a cool edge to a quirky outfit.

A good, solid holdall is your vital accessory this season and a simple, sleek design is a must have for that classic look that can be used again and again. A classic bag is not a seasonal trend, nor is it something which is cannot be used often, it has the ability to create a sharp designer look to an outfit. Ted Baker and Michael Kors both offer statement leather made bags; choose from a soft, relaxed textured leather such as the Michael Kors Fulton or keep things smart and sophisticated with bags such as Ted Baker's Ferne and the Michael Kors Selma (featured below).

Finding that perfect winter coat can be a nightmare. Short leather jackets aren't feasible and a chunky knit cardigan just will not suffice! For a formal jacket that will keep your look smart, opt for a longer length style. This season, Ted Baker, Maison Scotch, French Connection and Matchless have all released trench style/oversized coats. Ted Baker's Nevia and Nexie are great trench style choices, as are the Matchless Brooklands and Barbour's Coronet and Portlethan Mac.
Maison Scotch offer a more relaxed approach within their jacket range. Built to be 'oversized' and casually 'thrown on', (think big is more!) French Connection's Alexandra is a similar choice of coat. If the bagginess is too much, simply accessorise with a belt tied around the waist to cinch in the figure. Choose a soft pastel shade of pink or invest in the print trend once more. Choosing a stylish print can totally transform the plainest of outfits.
