Summer may be coming to an end, but with that comes the excitement of a brand new season and a wealth of new style opportunities to play with. So what are the top trends to take you into autumn? Sixties chic is back, so don’t hang up your go-go boots just yet; tailoring goes bold and bright, while folksy bohemia gets a modern update. And, of course, the classics are catered for too, with luxury minimalist pieces that you’ll wear again and again. If you’re looking for a little inspiration, Dolly Jones, editor of, delivers her edit of the season’s key coats in this week’s Trend Spotlight, while keep your eyes peeled for our Get the Look feature, which shows you how to create a working wardrobe that really means business. And don’t miss this month’s In the Moment feature with fashionable foodies Hemsley + Hemsley, two sisters who are cooking up a storm in the world of healthy eating. The colder months may be closing in but that doesn’t mean you can’t keep that care-free summer feeling. This season, the message is simple: have fun, embrace colour and don’t be afraid to try new things.
