1. Plaid shirt
2. Burgundy jeans
Flattering and on-trend, what’s not to love about this season’s penchant for burgundy jeans. Anything from a deep cherry to plum or damson purple will give your wardrobe an instant Autumn update and the dark colour will still flatter your thighs. Take the look a step further with coated denim for a waxed effect.

3. Lace detail
Be inspired by the ultimate yummy-mummy Elle MacPherson who rocks leather trousers as a staple in her wardrobe. Ease yourself in to the look with leather or leather-look leggings and a chunky-knit long sweater. A leather jacket will always give your look a rock-chick edge.

5. Red loafers
Mum-friendly, comfortable and stylish, with a seasonal twist in the colour choice which will go with a lot more outfits than you would expect. Mix crimson with burgundy, navy, black, the options are endless.
Marks and Spencer
Highlight your capsule Autumn wardrobe with flashes of mustard, the accent colour of the season. Look for plain sweaters, accessories or make a statement with a spicy yellow blazer.
7. Owl print
Last season it was bird print which ruled the roost, this season it’s got specific and not just any bird will do but owl prints take the lead thanks to Burberry’s influence on the catwalk.
8. Studded boots
As always, where the catwalk leads, the high street follows and this season it’s the Chloe studded boot which has inspired the likes of Zara and Mango to bring us their version.
9. Jewel detail
Jewel colours and embellishments are always an Autumn/Winter hit as the party season nears. Look for jewel encrusted detail on eveningwear and for a more wearable take on the trend, work a chunky jewelled necklace.
10. Military jacket
How will you update your look for the new season? What’s your must-have or lust-have?
