Autumnal Attire

As much as I love summer - the scent of chirpy plants, feeling the sun penetrating my skin and the long nights - this years Autumn fashion makes the temperature drop something to get excited about. 

Here are some of the key colours this season from New York Fashion Week:

Warm, autumnal hues are painting the high street beautifully. Here are a couple of my fashion finds;

Asos dress with lace top - £45. Click here to buy.

So dreamy, so soft, so elegant. In an iconic shade of the season 'orchid hush', on trend lace and of course my favourite fabric of the moment, chiffon; this dress is utterly gorgeous. With 3/4 length sleeves, a defined waist and flowing skirt - it's flattering for pretty much any body shape - and suitable to wear both day and night. Perfect!

Ruffle front dress in 'coral' - Warehouse £65. Buy here.

What I love most about this dress is it's autumnal colour. Summer was all about bright orange (and yes, I fell for it,) but this warmer, toned down, refurbished colour is just right for this season.

PETITE sequin wrap front dress - Asos £150. By here.

So I'm not petite, nor am I skinny enough to pull this dress of - but WOW. The way that the sequins reflect the light at different angles is stunning. In memory of last season's colour blocking of bright fuscias and oranges, this dress teams deep teal with stone - two of this seasons must-haves in the colour pallette - for an autumn friendly, shimmering colour blocking look. 

Mela feather print dress by Yumi - £10 in the sale. Buy here.

Combining an array of autumnal colours, feather print, sheer sleeves and waist detail - this dress almost reminds me of a painting. With it's wishy-washy feel, it really does sum up the mood in the air right now as winter lurks around the corner. Teamed with black patent heels, a fur coat and clutch - this dress would suit a relaxed dinner date.
