From teddy bear coats to tonal dressing and beyond, here's a run through of the ready to wear trends we're trying this season.
“One trend I’m trying (and not sure if I’m failing at) is the pleather trouser trend. I’ve got a few different styles, my favourite being the tight skinny ones, I tend to reach for these over the slightly more paper bag style (which I also went and bought after seeing someone far more stylish wearing them on instagram). I tend to wear them with baggy jumpers, a nice clean white shirt or an oversized t shirt tucked in and have so far not had any Ross from friends moments. I’ve seen a brown pair more recently in H&M that I’ve got my eye on.”
“I know velvet is pretty much a trend every winter but it doesn’t usually pique my interest UNTIL NOW. I spotted these fab velvet high-waisted trousers from & Other Stories on ASOS in this gorgeous green jewel shade and can’t stop thinking about them! Would pair with a grey jumper and biker boots and throw on an overcoat.”
“I’m finally making my transition into 4th Haim sister and am embracing corduroy! I love the deep festive green of this dress, and to transition this look into elf-chic, some burgundy boots are a lovely pop of colour. Of course I’m wrapping up in a cosy coat, and this one from M&S is a lovely colour and they’re my fave for super cosy coats all year round!”
“Teddy Bear coats! I admit i’m obsessed with how the classic Max Mara one looks but at nearly £2k a pop it’s sadly far beyond my reach. There are some great high Street “dupes” that i’ve got my eye on which look just as good and won’t break the bank.”
“Try as I may to make the bucket hat trend work for me, I’ve accepted my head was simply not built for them. Alas, I’m sticking to a ‘trend’ I know has zero risk of making me look like a Cabbage Patch Kid: tonal dressing. Easy to execute, makes an outfit look put together even if took you 5 mins to get dressed and it ticks all the Autumnal boxes.”
