Belted coats

A belted coat is perfect during autumn, as it is an ideal statement piece to keep warm whilst strolling through the park. Expressing effortless sophistication, the belt adds and extra layer of depth to your coat and helps to define your waistline in a way that is flattering.

Whether you decide to wear a statement fur jacket, or opt for a for a leather trench coat – the belt is a refining piece within this ensemble, which can be knotted or fastened depending on your look.

Alongside the belted coat, wide waisted belts are also making an appearance this autumn; they can be worn over your coat, or, they can be added to an evening dress that will help to define your curves. Browns, blacks, and reds are colours that aren’t only popular, but help you to channel the natural colours of the season. However, if you’re worrying about keeping warm this autumn – Jumper 1234 are sure to keep you warm with fashionable designs that appeal to the comforting colours of the season.

Suiting in style

This trend is set to go global by September: the female suit. Not only does it keep you warm during the colder months, it also produces a look that is powerful.

Elegantly designed slacks and pressed double-breasted jackets are all the rage this autumn; together with pronounced shoulders and shoulder-width trousers, the suit helps to re-appropriate a masculine look for the female fashion-forward. Don’t worry, this isn’t a return of the eighties; it’s power-dressing in 2017.

True blue

Summer is all about eye-catching pinks, and dashing scarlets – but once the leaves begin to change colour, dusky modest blues define autumn. Labelled as the new ‘it’ colour, the moody notes incorporated by dark blues within an outfit can really make a lasting impression.

Wear a pale blue shirt with slim-fitting grey trousers for an outfit that is subtle yet striking, or why not try a brighter coloured blue mac to create a contrast between your outfit and the autumnal environment around you?

Nylon jackets

Whether you’re going to a festival, or walking through town, a nylon coat is the transitional outerwear that you’ve been looking for. Without fear of any wrinkles, this type of coat is similar to a mac, and can be packed away in your suitcase to take to any event without any hassle.

These futuristic, cutting edge jackets can be worn casually with flats, or can be worn on the evening with a pair of high boots or heels; blacks, browns, and greens are all this autumn – so wear subtle colours underneath to pull off a look that’s striking without having to make the effort.


  • I actually love jacket suits. I think their sassy and powerful!

  • Blue is one of my favourite colours anyway so I like the sound of the dusky, darker blue. I like the idea of a belted coat as well x
