The 6 Autumn Trends To Start Wearing Now

Favourites 16

Your summer holidays may still be to come, but fashion waits for no man and the new season trends are trickling into stores now. The upside of the unreliable British weather means you can get away with some pre-fall styles in the height of summer; here are the six autumn trends all fashion fans should be wearing today…

Black Florals

Vogue coined AW17 the season of the ‘power princess’ – enter the black florals trend, which puts a dark twist on the ditsier, girly patterns of summer. Wear maxi dresses with fur slides and sunnies for a boho look now, and later in the year team with knee-high boots for maximum effect.

Floral Print Mini Dress, £592 | Ulla Johnson

Handkerchief Hem Skirt, £36 | Topshop

Long Floral Dress, £39.99 | Zara


Embellished Footwear

Manolo Hangisi owners, rejoice – the embellished shoe is officially back in fashion favour. Gucci and Balenciaga set a precedent last season, and now the high street is delivering on elegant designs – Zara’s removable options are a particular winner.

Embellished Satin Shoes, £56 | Topshop

Satin Pumps, £765 | Manolo Blahnik

Bejewelled Kitten Heel, £59.99 | Zara


Blush Velvet

Valentino, Lemaire and Jeremy Scott have all ensured the pink velvet reign continues into next season. Decadent, plush and romantic, try the look with a statement lip and white accessories for big events.

Straight Leg Trousers, £235 | Masscob

Velvet Jumpsuit, £249 | Whistles

Open Back Midi Dress, £38.50 (was £55) | ASOS


Grey Suiting

If it feels a little soon to layer up in grey wool suits à la Marant and McCartney, invest in the current crop of blazers to get the look, adding tees and denim cut-offs for a casual take. The heritage style is set to be big once more this winter – add sock boots and hoodies for a very fashion-forward approach.

Check Structured Blazer, £69.99 | Mango

Houndstooth Blazer, £375 | Isabel Marant Etoile

Double Breasted Jacket, £69.99 | Zara



Kitten Ankle Boots

Ever since the trainer came back into fashion favour, girls have been looking for more comfortable alternatives to staggering heels. The kitten heel has therefore re-entered the spotlight, and it’s received an autumnal makeover in the form of ankle boots. Dorateymur and Tibi have been pioneers – team with everything from summer dresses to statement culottes.

Pointed Kitten Heel Boots, £69 | Topshop

Suede Ankle Boots, £365 | Dorateymur

Kitten Heel Ankle Boots, £25.99 | Zara


Statement Headwear

From turbans to colourful fedoras, everyone is embracing cult headwear this season. Forget using your hats to mask bad hair days – define your outfit with a statement-making wrap or bold red baker boy.

Knit Turban, £155 | Missoni Mare

Rabbit Fur Fedora Hat, £510 | Maison Michel

Cashmere Felt Cap, £185 | Eugenia Kim

Captain’s Cap, £12.99 | H&M
