Autumn Fashion Weekly Wishlist

It’s time for autumn fashion. That means it’s time to get out there and buy some new clothes! Hooray. And shoes. Double hooray! And accessories. Yay, hooray!

Autumn fashion is great. Coats, knits, sparkly bits. This year there are loads of trends to buy into, as well as some just truly lovely pieces out there. So, this is my Autumn Fashion Weekly Wishlist – a random wishlist of pieces I just love right now.

First up, the coat. This gorgeous deep forest green coat from JOY £125) has me coming over all Rita Hayworth, or Grace Kelly, or Audrey Hepburn – you get the idea. It has that brilliant vintage style, and the colour would look fantastic with every haircolour, from redhead to blonde, to brunette and black. It’s a true statement autumnb fashion coat. It needs nothing more than a vintage brooch to lift it. I’m imagining it with a shift dress, and the gorgeous red patent low heeled court shoes from Schuh (£45). Sometimes a low heel is all that’s needed, and these are great. Who said red and green should never be seen? Nonsense!

Still ina vintage mood, French Connection’s completely frou-frou pink chiffon dress brought Jayne Mansfield and her pink palace to mind. This dress is outrageously bonkers, and an autumn fashion wildcard, but I love it.

WWEEKLY WISHLIST OCTOBERH&M’s full midi skirt (£99.99) is the full midi skirt to end all full midi skirts! That print, that pleating, that shape. Give me it, now! Florals and bold prints are an autumn fashion treat this year – French Connection’s Calliope bird feather print jersey dress (£75) is so simple, yet bold. Julien Macdonald’s printed maxi dress (£55) from his Star collection at Debenhams is not for the faint of heart. It’s bold and beautiful. New Look’s midnight blue devore shorts (£19.99),  and the matching top (£24.99) made it into my Top Ten this week as one – yeah, cheating, but you can’t have one without the other here!

It’s been raining a bit of late, so time for a new umbrella, and I love this owl print one (£10) from Claire’s. And whilst you’re there, how could you resist these cute little geeky owl stud earrings (£3.50)!? Owls in geek glasses. Too cute! Finally, H&M’s big blue plastic ring (£3.99). I love bold, bright, colourful plastic jewellery, so this is maybe the last, but it’s the top of my autumnal fashion weekly wishlist this week. Now, off to H&M…

A-Z Autumn Winter Trends – Part Three

Back in March we brought you a very handy four-part guide to spring summer trends. So, we’re back now with another very hand four-part guide, this time our A-Z autumn winter trends. Fashion is great, but a bit confusing, and we don’t want to be wearing the wrong thing do we?

So, here’s the third part of our handy A-Z autumn winter trends guide, covering N-T. We’ll be back tomorrow with the final part.

N is for Normcore

What on earth is normcore, I hear you say. Well, it’s an easy trend that’s for sure – or is it. It’s about looking like you don’t care, maybe just wear anything, almost an anti-fashion fashion trend. Think chinos, jeans, t-shirts, shirts, and well, get yourself to GAP, where this normcore outfit is from!

AW14 style trends N for normcoreO is for One-Piece

Jumpsuit, playsuit, boiler suit. Call it what you want, the one-piece is here to stay. It’s been on-trend for years now, and now seems to be part of everyone’s wardrobe. So, make sure you have a one-piece of some sort in your autumn winter wardrobe. A leather boiler suit might be a bit much for everyone, so a lace topped jumpsuit could be perfect. Or just some casual denim dungarees.

P is for pastels

Yep, carrying on from summer, pastels are a winter trend, with pastel pink at the front again, and those pink coats again! If you bought one last winter, feel smug. If you didn’t get one this year!

Q is for Quilting

Quilting was seen on catwalks at Chloe, Dior and Kenzo in Paris – and not just on jackets. Trousers, dresses and skirts were cosy in quilting. What a perfect autumn winter trend! Choose quilting on a jacket or coat, or dare to wear a quilted skirt or dress!

R is for Roll-Necks

All hail the roll neck. And the polo neck. And the turtleneck. And the high neck. Just cover that neck. A nod to the 1960s trend this season comes in the shape of sweaters that cover your modesty. And keep you warm. Result.

S is for Sixties

Yep, there’s one decade that’s on trend this season and it’s the Sixties. And what better way to get the 1960s vibe than with a shift dress. Even better with a psychedelic pattern. Or sequins, or graphics. Short, straight and so easy to wear, the shift dress is a wardrobe staple we should all have at least one of.

Is there ever a season tartan, or plaid, is not in fashion? It’s back this year, and who doesn’t love a bit of tartan, Scottish or not? Checks, tartan, plaid – easy to wear, wintry and cosy, be it tops, trousers, dresses, skirts or coats. Embrace your Scottishness, Scottish or not!
