What to invest in this Autumn

7 Oct

So many temptations! So many delicious colours! So little time! Not so much money!!

As I have said before, Autumn is my favourite time of year as, being a redhead, I am spoiled for choice with all the rich, warm colours that are around. The good news is that there are so many choices this Autumn about what’s in, what’s out and what’s on trend. The most important thing is to know the right colours and shapes for you. Start with your own wardrobe and you will re-discover garments you had forgotten! Investment pieces you bought in the past few years will work just as well now as they did last Autumn. Do you own anything animal print? Dig it out – animal print is big news this Autumn/Winter.

So, it’s decluttering and recycling from past seasons, accessorising in a different way (ankle boots rather than high boots?) and mixing up garments and colours you might not have considered before.

My number one tip is Accessorise, accessorise, accessorise! I have to say I am really impressed with Marks & Spencer’s collections this year. They have some super stuff. Some of the items I have added this year so far are a cute little detachable faux fur collar from Marks & Spencer (a bargain at £15)  that will spruce up dresses and jackets alike, a pair of pewter grey suede boots that I have been on the lookout for, like, forever, an animal print trilby hat (also M&S), and of course, some Stella & Dot bling! I have ordered this cute Limited Edition Fox ring and can’t wait to wear it with the matching pendant. You will spot lots of animal themed clothes and jewellery this Autumn/Winter – owls, foxes, stags … This lovely ring is part of Alice Temperley’s collection for Stella & Dot and is sure to be a sellout! Alice Temperley is a British fashion designer who is known for combining femininity with cool Britannia sensibilities. She has reigned over the London fashion scene for the past decade, with an impressive celeb following including Beyonce and Kate and Pippa Middleton.
