There’s a sudden chill in the air, the leaves are starting to fall and the nights are drawing in; it’s officially Autumn. It’s time to pack up the flowing maxi dresses and sun hats for another year as we indulge on pumpkin spiced lattes and spend the month preparing our wardrobes for the annual seasonal changeover. With a new season comes a new wardrobe so we’ve been keeping our eye on the catwalks to share our top picks of how to stay on trend for AW19.
Structured tailoring was all over the catwalk last season and it looks like it’s here to stay. The perfectly fitted blazer can add a touch of sophistication to any outfit and is a wardrobe essential you’ll never tire of wearing.
Reiss Blazer RRP £295 Outlet £110
Phase Eight Trouser RRP £79 Outlet £39
This satin statement option from Reiss gives just the right amount of glam when paired with a simple black palazzo-pant and of course, a crisp white shirt. Wear it with minimal jewellery, loose tousled hair a nude lip and let the blazer do the talking. A wide leg tailored trouser will take you from the office to the bar – pair with a simple cream top and a statement gold earring for maximum style points.
