As summer draws to a close and we look to autumn (and Christmas, if you’re feeling particularly daring), it’s time to start thinking about the AW18 trends and how to subtly introduce them to your wardrobe. Even though the AW trends are more statement than subtle, by selecting key pieces to slip into your style repertoire you can get that effortlessly chic and ahead-of-the-trend look!

Explore the AW trends set to dominate the high street – and where you can already shop the best!

Animal Print

Topshop, M&S, Zara, New Look

Animal print is seemingly always on trend. This Autumn put a spin on your usual leopard print and make your way around the animal kingdom – snake, cow, zebra. All faux , course. Go wild!

Western Style

Topshop, Schuh, AllSaints

Move over sock boot, the western ankle boot is taking the spotlight this Autumn-Winter. A comfy but chic cuban heel, as well as the pointed toe means that this boot is effortlessly flattering. Ye-haw!

High Texture

TOPSHOP, Urban Outfitters, & Other Stories, River Island

Forget colour clashing – start texture clashing. Layer up silky satins with thick, fluffy jumpers. Mix up vinyl with velvet. The shinier the better, obvs. Fashion is best when extreme.


Selfridges, H&M, Primark, Miss Selfridge, GAP

The retro 70s influence is everywhere right now. Think orange tones, pussy bows, wide leg silhouettes, and cord for days. Easy to achieve, yet super chic. Yeah baby!
