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…


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
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.

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.

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.

    I love satchels at the moment and bowling bags! It's a shame I can't wear belts around my middle, my shape doesn't suit them what's so ever!

      i never used to wear belts apart from to hold up jeans, but i dabbled with it and now love it! And im with you on the satchels, i have 3 that i just love (black, navy and tan!) i dont think they can go out of fashion in my eyes! xxx
