Your Autumn Style Guide –sorted!

Autumn is here! Whilst we’re still seeing a few glimpses of that Summer sunshine, the colder weather is definitely starting to sink in and we are getting clear signs that is time to refresh our wardrobe with a few warmer layers. The new season trends though are a refreshing change from the whites, blues, frills and bell sleeves of Summer. Think reds, bright colours, statement pieces and lots of texture. It really is time to break the rules and step out of your comfort zone a bit. Bold is back and we couldn’t be more excited! 

Here are three big trends that can’t be ignored, and where to get them at Monks Cross.

Red to toe

Red is the new black this season! Yup, you’ve every right to go ahead and wear multiple items of red clothing in different hues and shades. The brighter the better! Of course, not everyone wants to wear red to toe so why not bring in little elements of the season’s hottest colour to make a statement. Think red shoes, a red bag and you can never go wrong with a bit of post box red lippy!

 

Shoes on point

Of course boots are in but this time with a point! Search for those perfectly pointed ankle boots that really will give you the edge this Autumn. Don’t hold back on colour either. This season is all about bold colours and metallics so why not go for something like these stand out white and black boots from Topshop or New Look’s jazzy metallic pair.

Office are oozing class this season and these dark red pointed ankle boots will make sure you stand out from the crowd and feel a million dollars. Pair these with jeans for a casual day look or why not wear them to the office with black trousers for the ultimate power outfit!

Bold textures

The trick with this is nothing is too much. Mix and match your textures and bold colours to your heart’s content! Think satin, velvet, gloss, leather-look, matt, shine, metallic and more! We adore the pinks available at Monsoon and how striking is this look from River Island! Head over to Evans for a more casual take on textures, this velvet feel cardigan is the perfect way to keep warm this season. 

Don’t forget about your accessories either, the trends don’t stop there! Velvet socks, textured bags and bright colours all round are just what you want to be channeling this Autumn. We are in love with this bright pink metallic look bag from Topshop! You’ll be the envy of everyone with these must-have accessories this season.
