Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, close bosom friend of the maturing sun.
It’s not only John Keats who gets misty-eyed at the approach of Autumn: here at ELLE our eyes are aglow with the new trends.
Head-to-toe leathers, ornate Kremlin jewel-style jackets and every berry shade imaginable ruled the runways at the shows back in February. And now they’re poised and ready to hit your wardrobe.
This season it’s up to you to choose your muse. From the glossy-maned equestrian girl in Ride On, to the dark and deadly Girl with a Dragon Tattoo type who inspired the Dark Arts trend, via winter florals, soldier boys, and a flirtation with the Far East, this season the world is your fashion oyster.
Follow our guide to the top trends and discover the pieces that will get you into them right now.
We call it the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo effect: designers got dark and deadly for Autumn with head to toe leathers, vicious studs and a Nordic Winter palette of black-on-black. Lace yourself up, strap yourself in, and prepare to live dangerously this season. Or at the very least to look like you do. Look to Givenchy, Versace and Alexander Wang for your starting point.
