There is no better way to feel protected against the elements than to throw on a statement shearling coat. This essential autumn piece can easily cross over into a variation of styles, from full longline overcoats to shearling trim collars.

A trend reminiscent of times gone by, boho-chic draws on hippie-influenced and bohemian fashion choices. Making a comeback in the form of folksy fringing, bold prints and even flares, accentuate your softer side with this loose, colourful and lightweight trend. Finish your look with a knitted poncho or cape to ensure you’re wrapped up as we descend into autumn..
The High Neck
Whether you’re bundling yourself up for a walk on a blustery day or settling down in a big armchair in front of the fire, this season’s take on jumpers will have you yearning for the cold. Roll necks, polo necks or a funnel neck, it seems the higher the better this year which we may be grateful for as the temperature drops. This knitwear trend is one that can even be incorporated into that perfect winter dress.
Autumn is always an interesting time for colour, with the leaves slowly changing and transforming gardens and parks into a new wonderland.

The idea that ‘less is more’ is out the window on this particular occasion, with earrings evocative of chandeliers and stacked bracelets as seen on the catwalk.
