An autumn that started in slow motion gave us more time to focus on trends and solutions. A little vintage, a little oversized, a little contrast, and the ever-present ton sur ton will be your salvation. Said goodbye to total looks, this autumn and winter behind the doors, offer inventiveness, layering and revival. You can take advantage of the days of great promotions but also think of a gift for yourself before Christmas, a few pieces to give new life to items already purchased and, of course, the accessories of the moment to make any choice current.
The new trends for autumn call for comfort even in the office. Oversize and wide trousers are all the rage this year, you get to the end of the day without stress and the look is always à la page. Oversize concerns one piece at a time, if it's not the trousers, it can be the blazer, in a subtle balance of proportions. Both well with a smooth white shirt, without frills, to be embellished with a gilet. The boot is the right footwear for this ensemble.
Outdoor rides are characterized by the return of the quilted jacket. It can be seen everywhere, like the loves that make immense turns and then return: it is back in The Crown, as well as on the catwalks, revisited, corrected, embellished. It goes well in the countryside, in the city and even to minimize an evening outfit. Impossible not to have it. Still on the subject of outerwear, the coat is a dressing gown cut, it's comfortable, it's one size larger, or in tartan. Everything recalls old Scotland or the autumn weekends at Balmoral.
For free time, a triumph of preppy style: I can see you with a blouse with a sweater over jeans or a pleated skirt and moccasins.
For those who love contrasts: autumn colours of the earth or of the leaves, with belts, bags, shoes in the boldest colours: red, orange, yellow, ultramarine blue. Skirts are midi or knee-length, and narrow. It is Important, also, to mark the waist. This year goes like this.
