Autumn is known as the trickiest time of year for fashion. The shops are full of jerseys and coats that beckon for cold nights and days by the fire, but the weather just isn’t cold enough to consider wearing any of them. Say hello to layering. But forget heavy knits and scarves big enough to use as blankets, and rather choose lightweight fabrics and versatile outerwear. The trench is the hero of Autumn – able to protect from aircon chill and sudden downpours, and light enough to carry when its too warm to wear. Add some preppy charm by pairing your trench with tailored jewel-tone cigarette leg trousers and a chiffon shirt , and if you’re feeling daring – plaid separates will earn extra style credit. A jumpsuit works just as well. Mules will keep the look from appearing too masculine and to tie it all together simply add a brown waist belt.
