I've picked 4 of my favourite trends for this AW hot off the catwalk. But even better than that, I've done some serious hunting about and found YOU some amazing & affordable alternatives so you can get the looks without breaking the bank.

Forget fuchsia pink, we're taking it a a few shades darker. Red is the new IT colour of the season. Did you know that colour theory suggests that RED is the perfect colour to wear to interviews as it invokes feelings of confidence and gets you noticed, it's also great to wear to lift your energy levels and mood. Try for yourself with some of these RED HOT styles...
From left to right clockwise; Zara silky dress £59.99, Red detail long sleeves top People Tree £49, Wrap dress made from Bamboo by Nancy Dee £75, Pencil skirt with zip by & Other Stories £59, Soft tailored jersey jacket by Whistles £85
Style Tip: If you're unsure about going head to toe in red try breaking it up and toning the look down with a contrasting jacket / top / accessories.

The best way to offset your smart tailored suit (another major trend this season) is team it with a witty SLOGAN TEE, and the more political the message the better - let your opinions be read loud and proud. Here are some of my favs...
From left to right clockwise; Peace Stripe tee by People Tree £39, Bee the Change by Deborah Campbell £24.50, Bad Girls Club jacket by Olive&Frank £65, Choose Love by Help Refugees & Katharine Hamnett £19, Ooh La La red jumper by Whistles £85

That's right, the 70's is having yet another revival this autumn. Personally I think Autumn is the best time to embrace this style, I'm talking knee high boots, faux fur trimmed coats and capes, bold lustrous prints and beautiful spice colours and jewel tones to warm you up as the first frost sets in. Here are my picks for some serious 70's style....
From left to right clockwise; Printed tencel jumpsuit by People Tree £109, Burberry navy cape available at net-a-porter.com £895, Gold pleated skirt by Whistles £139, Printed dress by Reformation $248, Teal bamboo tunic by Nancy Dee £64, Black and yellow print wrap dress by Marks and Spencer £39.50

Tis the season to dazzle in your shimmery best. And not just sliver, anything metallic goes. Perfect inspiration for the party season ahead...
From left to right clockwise; Silver maxi by Halston Heritage £430, Clutch by Dorothy Perkins £35, Metallic trousers from Intropia £60.50, Silver shimmy mini dress by Rachel Zoe £660, Bronze long sleeved dress Marks and Spencer £55, Metallic beaded belt from Intropia £45.50
Style Tip: Get the metallic vibes without the red carpet occasion by introducing touches of sparkle with your accessories like the clutch and belt shown here, wear with dark jeans and smart blazer to off set the glitz. Or try these amazing metallic trousers (shown above) teamed with a simple casual black or grey tee, leather jacket and a pair of understated heels or ankle boots and your good to go!
