10 Autumn wardrobe updates

All it takes are a few easy additions to your wardrobe to bring your look bang up to date.  These 10 mum-friendly trends will instantly up the ante for your new season style.

1. Plaid shirt

Checks, plaid, tartan whatever your choice, this is an easy print to wear with denim for throw-it-on style.

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

Work the opulent baroque trend by adding lace to your day look. Choose metallic threads for added fashion brownie points and dress down with denim.

4. Leather

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.

6. Mustard

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

The military trend is here once again and this utility look is great for mums.  With pockets galore and khaki tones which will still look good when grubby.
