Three autumn trends you’ll actually want to wear

peta_and_roll_neckFinding wearable looks in among new season trends can be a total nightmare – runway pictures seem to feature such extreme looks that finding something that you might actually be able to put on in the morning and not be laughed at can seem an impossible task.

However, there are a few themes in those extraordinary runway shows which translate into clothes in shops that you might be able to contemplate buying, and I’ve rounded up my favourite four from the coming season.

Velvet

Velvet is EVERYWHERE this autumn/winter. The trick to making it work is keeping the whole look luxurious but laid back. Rich tones, subtle jewellery and gorgeous textures contribute to an outfit that is elegant and up to the minute.

Polo necks under dresses

This is such an easy trend to access – simply layer up your favourite shift/pinafore/tea dress with a bold coloured polo neck underneath for a retro chic look that will keep you right up to date. Plus – added bonus – it keeps you warm in winter!

Trouser suits

Allegedly inspired by the queen of the trouser suit, Hilary Clinton, the runways were full of statement trouser suits in velvet, satin and bold colours, but the high street is making this trend available to those of us who don’t live in fashion land with relaxed trouser suits in neutral colours, perhaps with a hint of print or piping to add interest. Pair yours with a minimalist top in an accent colour to flatter your features and keep the look casual. Swap the top for a silky camisole and the androgynous loafers for fabulous heels to make a modern evening outfit.
