The key to all of autumns new trends
is, put simply, to toughen up. You can still wear floral prints and nude hues, just add edge with new fashion finds. For now, layer your light tees
, leggings or summer dresses with Miss Selfridge's bold shouldered leather jacket, or pair with French Connections fierce ankle boots. Add a hint of grunge
to denim shorts
with a plaid lumberjack shirt, Whistles new version is perfect, and a tasselled studded bag like this one from Dorothy Perkins - just make sure it's black. Finally, get your hands on this Marc Jacobs necklace which combines a cute bow with punky chains and strikes the perfect pretty-tough balance.
