It is finally here, although it feels more like winter in the U.K, it's my personal favourite fashion season, autumn! The short British summer may be over but not all the hottest trends of the summer season have disappeared like our tans. Welcome the winter maxi dress, favoured by celebs all over the globe. Whether it’s a casual day time look or if you’re daring enough to rock this trend on an evening it’s the perfect way to look fashion forward this autumn/winter season.

Topshop once again where flying the British fashion flag high at London Fashion Week, with this woodland inspired winter maxi taking the crowds by storm. Designed by Unique** it is a season must have. Teamed with a pair of gorgeous wedge heeled shoes or boots, another new glam

take on our favourite summer shoe or if you’re feeling like letting the inner rebel out these chunky open toe ankle boots are perfect for both day and night.








If you’re not feeling quite so daring to go for the full throttle patterned maxi a plain knitted version will be your wardrobe staple for the autumn/winter period,


this gorgeous ribbed polo neck piece from Warehouse again will bring you through the day to the evening so is a definite investment to all fashionista’s. Add a chunky knitted snood in a camel or nude tone to make a real statement, this best seller from NewLook is a real bargain and not only will it keep you looking fabulous but warm too, who said fashion can’t be practical!

To be a true high fashion flyer this season, an aviator jacket must be your best friend. Goodbye to the leather jacket and welcome the aviator. Inspired by 60’s pilots, these are no longer something we’d only see in old black and white films, bought to life in all varieties, black leather, brown suede, faux sheep’s skin, faux fur there is one to suite every individual and won’t break your bank. This gorgeous piece again from is a brilliant example, worn with a winter maxi during the day would finish off your catwalk look. It is the most versatile piece this season and will carry you through to early next year.

If you want to add a bit of ‘jena si qua’ as the French say, the faux fur gillet has been revived from the days of ABBA to keep us looking glam over the Autumn season and you will still be rocking it come the Christmas period. Add it to any outfit to really pull off that 70’s hippy chic which is back for the autumn, teamed with your winter maxi on an evening will give you that show stopping look and of course every woman deserves to have people stop and stare with style envy.
