Your Guide to Autumn Dressing.

What to keep and what to kick out of your wardrobe to take you stylishly into next season.

This time of year is always hard. Do you need a coat? Are bare legs still acceptable? When do I leave Spring/Summer trends in the past? Fear not, Vogue have written a fantastic article about what to keep a hold of and what to chuck. Below I've summarised the best bits for you.

Monogram Mania

The first thing to keep is the logo bag. Think Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Dior: the branded bag is well and truly back. But don't stop their - make sure all your accessories and footwear are monogrammed to nail the millennial look.

Suckers for Shearling

Veteran model Freja Beha Erichsen showed journalists everywhere that shearling is here to stay this season with this dreamy Louis Vuitton coat. Whether you've still got yours from when Burberry showed those amazing aviator jackets a few winters ago, or whether you'll be buying for the first time, shearling a staple item you need this season.

Specs Appeal

Need glasses? Good. Gucci brought glasses back in a big way with their Resort 2016 presentation. These Elsa Peretti-esque frames were big hits with Vogue and it's easy to see why. The tortoiseshell frames are the perfect nod to autumn, with their glorious gold and brown tones.

Laters Leather

So what should you be getting rid of? First up, the leather shirt, as seen at Spring/Summer 2015 Versus Versace. Swap leather for silk to soften up any Rock'n'roll references. Pussy-bow blouses? Even better, cue Gucci.

Forego Fringing

Folk and fringing may have dominated the Spring/Summer 2015 catwalks, but this season we're going 80s - think clubbing metallics and Dynasty silhouettes. The style decade that brought disco to every high street has returned. Unsure where to look, take J.W. Anderson's Autumn/Winter 2015 show as inspiration.

High-Waisted Heroes

The 70s flare may be extremely flattering, but it's time to, once again, bid them farewell. (Sorry Tom Ford) Instead, fashion editors at Vogue are favouring these high-waisted Marc Jacobs pants. Who doesn't like slightly oversized pieces that hide a multitude of sins?
