Your Capsule Wardrobe for Autumn 2015

It’s time to wave a sad bye-bye to flirty summer dresses, floaty florals and flip flops, but the new season AW/15 trends should put a smile back on your face. This season’s packed with flexible items designed to put the thrill back into your regular wardrobe. Easy to wear and made to work with your basics, you’ll love them. Here’s our guide to these capsule pieces – expect fringing, fur and flares for a fun throwback to the ’70s.

Whether you’re a dancing queen, a stylish mamma (mia), or both, take a chance on full-on flares to look the part this autumn. The flare is the jean style of the moment, so scrap those skinnies and dare to flare instead! Pair them with a fluffy fur gilet to keep out the chill this autumn/winter and you can’t go wrong. Faux fur gilets look gorgeous over everything from shirt dresses to fine knits. Or throw one over a summer playsuit or maxi dress to get extra wear from your last season buys.

If you’re only swayed by one trend this season, make it fringing. Be brave and go for a fringed poncho or tasselled waistcoat, or make a subtle style statement with a fringing-trimmed bag or boots – yee-haw fashion fans.


Throwing a cosy poncho over your roll neck will add an extra layer of warmth that’s just right for crisp, cool autumn days. This oversized outer layer is one of this season’s hot trends – it will add style points to any outfit, so you can feel smug as well as snug.

Keeping warm and cosy this winter is going to be a walk in the park, with trends like the roll neck making a come back too. You can even layer this fine knit under a gilet as well as a poncho or smarten it up for work with a pencil skirt.
