Three Easy to Wear Autumn Fashion Trends with John Lewis

Greetings Ladies, 
Autumn is upon us, wouldn't you agree! It's fantastic. Shall we take a look at some autumnal trends? Yes? Excellent!

If you feel head-to-toe leather, PVC cover-ups and psychedelic prints are a bit much for a trip to the local shops, here are three easy ways to inject on-trend autumn style into your everyday outfits. Over to the John Lewis trend spotter for some top tips…
Belt up

Burberry Prorsum defined waists in on heritage skirt and jumper outfits with cute tan bow bands at the autumn/winter catwalk shows. And elsewhere Clements Ribeiro and Scandinavian label Acne were among the top name fashion houses to cinch in jumpers and coats with chunky belts. Choose a smaller size belt than that you’d use to hook through your jean loops, so it fits neatly around your waist with no trailing length, and pair with everything from daring dresses to cosy cardigans. Leopard spots and multiple-strap styles are hot right now, and offer an easy way to buy into the animal print and biker trends.

Faux fur

Full-on fur was featured on gilets, snoods and jackets at autumn/winter fashion weeks, and was also used as trim by many well-known designers. There are a wide range of faux fur coats and jackets on the high street, but if you feel that such a cover-up is a bit much for the day, look to accessories to help inject the look into your outfit. Stoles, gloves, bags and boots all boast faux fur details this season, and can help add a touch of glamour if you’re taking your look from day to night.

Bowling bags

There’s one key handbag style that all the top fashion brands have bought into this season – the bowling bag. This Fifties-inspired handheld bag has become the new must-have piece for fans of Burberry, Mulberry, Marni – the list goes on – and more affordable versions have also become readily available. The wide design of the bowling style means that it makes for fairly roomy bags, but make sure that your choice can comfortably house your everyday essentials so it can join you everywhere. And look out for patent, animal print and fabric details to hit on those all-important trends.
