Autumn Micro-Trends To Wear Now

The Clash

Miu Miu, Dsquared2 and Just Cavalli made mashed-up prints and textures look modern not messy. Ease into the trend by keeping your prints within one colourway.

Pretty Pumps

The flat shoe has been given genteel appeal this season. Swap your chunky loafers for a T-bar or sling-back sandal. For high-end inspiration, take a look at Chloe and Nicholas Kirkwood, on the high street Hobbs and Jaeger.

Longer-length Sleeves

Sloppy is now chic, so says Stella McCartney and The Row. Winter knits now double up as hand warmers. But remember, go over-long without going oversized.

Furry Trims

On collars and cuffs, boots and bags, a furry trim is the most fashionable finish to any outfit this season. Shades of emerald green and merlot have extra fashion kudos.

Monochrome Mania

Black and white is back in all its graphic glory. Play with hound’s-tooth, checks and graphic rules to add interest, or keep it sleek and simple as seen at The Row.

Wide Belts

What’s the easiest way to transform an outfit for the new season? Simply cinch your waist with a thick belt, as seen as Haider Ackermann, House Of Holland and Balmain.

Fringed Skirts

Forget tokenistic nods to this trend on bags and boots. Thigh-high fringing on skirts is the way to reinterpret this classic western detail for the new season. Dress down the rest of your outfit to keep the balance between sexy and sophisticated just right.
