5 autumn trends to look for this season
Autumn has arrived. How did that happen?! As much as we all love the warm weather of summer, don't you agree there's something nice about slipping into our first coat of the season, or treating ourselves to a new pair of boots?
We've done some of the hard work for you, by rounding up our top 5 fashion picks for the autumn season that you can keep an eye out for while shopping for your wardrobe updates.
All things bright and neon are in for 2019, but you get bonus points if you wear the trend from head to toe! We love combos like blazers with wide-leg pants and knits with soft pleated skirts.

Swap your safe black ankle boots for something a little more... out there. Think snake prints, pops of colour and cowboy shapes. Keep it simple by wearing back with tees and denim or slip dresses.

Modern trench coats
A trench coat is the ultimate transeasonal piece and is an absolute must in autumn! This year, upgrade your trench to a unique shape, colour or print, making sure it's timeless enough that it will last you a few years.

Are skinny jeans on their way out? We never thought it would happen, but more relaxed denim styles are starting to take over. Look for straight legs, lower rises (ah!) and details like large cuffs, embroidery and feature hems.

New bag shapes
Just like boots, your bag can be the star of the show. With plastic bags now banned, more brands are releasing chic totes for work - and grocery shopping! There's also an amazing range of unique shapes on their way, like this Oroton skinny bucket bag and Mimco sphere tote.
