Update your autumn wardrobe in 7 easy steps

Update your autumn wardrobe in 7 easy steps

New season know how to keep your autumn clothes on trend without too much trouble

1. Repair and update

Take a good look at every garment and set aside ones that need a little TLC. While you’ve got the sewing box out, why not update to this season’s style? Chunky embellishments are one of the big things. Try adding jewels or Perspex detailing, sprinkled over dresses and cardigans. The bolder the better.

2. Invest in knee length boots

A few well-chosen new items make a big difference. The mod trend is full steam ahead this autumn and the right boots are pure ’60s in style. We’re talking knee length with a comfortably low mid-height square heel. Ideal for rushing around after kids!

3. Transform your old coat

Coats are big this Autumn (we mean large AND ultra-fashionable). A statement coat is a key way to update your wardrobe. Blanket coats are the biggest trend, but belting your existing overcoat at the waist to accentuate your hourglass figure is a budget way to get the look without spending out.

4. Blue and red are the new blacks

All over blue and all over red are the two big colour stories this season. Reluctant to give up browns and blacks? Give red and blue a try cheaply first, with a couple of pieces from a charity shop, or if it’s a lack of style-confidence holding you back, get expert fashion advice from the queen of vintage dressing with Dawn O’Porter’s confidence tips.

5. Knitwear from head to toe

Like a snuggle? You’ll love this key autumn fashion trend: all over knitwear. Choose machine washable knits for a practical everyday look with knitted leggings or tights topped with jumper dresses and slouchy cardigans. It can be a sexy look too, especially worn with this season’s key beauty trends – find them now at Beauty Recommended.

6. Make the shift to a new shift

Continuing the sixties trend, this season’s key dress is a reworking of the mod-style shift. Just make sure you don't choose one that reveals a little too much when you’re bending over the pushchair or reaching for the top shelves at the supermarket! The perfect thing about the shift dress is it takes you easily from school run to work to parents evening to a girls’ night out (when you’re lucky enough to get one).

7. And finally, don’t buy the same dress twice!

It’s all too easy to come back from the shops with something you love, only to find it’s almost identical to something you’ve already got. Clear away summer clothes, washing them and storing them in transparent boxes so it’s easy to see what you’ve got next year. This will leave room for your autumn/winter collection so you can see what’s what.
