Winter shades can be dark and a a tad drab.  However this Autumn / Winter there are some interesting shades which will help boost the winter blues!

Let’s start with the seasons neutrals.  This season, there are black items in the shops, but there is also a gorgeous array of coffee and cream shades too!

Cream trousers are great for autumn so these patch pocket jeans from Boden might hit the mark. 

Corduroy Trousers, Boden £95

Or what about the chic trench coat dress from Reiss in a warm neutral caramel colour?

If you can take the deeper warmer golden and coffee browns then the zebra print top from Hush might appeal (they do this print in a dress, maxi skirt, scarf and tote bag too!)

This satin jumpsuit from Mango is a real subtle statement.  Great for petites who can look taller when they wear the same colour head to foot.

Another key colour this season, and one that is often reserved for summer months, is luxurious pastel vanilla or buttery yellow.  If you have a warm undertone to your skin, then this may be a useful alternative to beige for you. 

Uniqlo, in a collaboration with Clare Waight Keller have launched this simple chic wrap coat.

Checks and Animal print styling
As much as I’ve enjoyed such a glorious long, hot Summer, I’m actually pretty pleased that Autumn is finally showing its face. This is undeniably my favourite season! I’m so relieved to be waving goodbye to those hot humid nights of precious little or no sleep, and welcoming the crisp mornings, dew on the grass, and piles of crunchy golden leaves to stomp through.

Every change of season heralds a new range of fashion collections, and as a personal stylist and image consultant that sets my trend-spotting antenna buzzing! And the new Autumn/Winter 2018 season has not disappointed. I’m thrilled that prints have remained firmly on the menu in just about every couture collection doing the rounds of the catwalk shows.

If you attended one of my Spring/Summer styling sessions, you will remember my advice on how to wear patterns. Anyonecan wear a pattern, you just need to choose carefully according to your shape and style personality.

This Autumn you will see patterns wherever you look, so if its not something you would ordinarily consider I encourage you to think about it now. Some of the new trends are already hitting the High Street, and the two main patterns I want to highlight are animal printand checks.

As fashion month gets into full swing around the world and Summer draws to an end, many of us will be thinking about our Autumn/Winter wardrobes.

August diaries imageThe start of a new season is the perfect time to take a step back and review your own personal style. We can all get stuck in a rut, or style of dressing that almost becomes like a ‘uniform’ which we end up wearing day in, day out. However, with a few simple steps you can transform your personal style to leave you looking and feeling refreshed for the months ahead!
