Autumn Style Edit - Debenhams


After a seemingly endless summer, the new fashion season has finally arrived.  Summer is winding down and the autumn/winter styles are starting to fill the rails in stores, which can only mean one thing: we’ve reached that indecisive, stuck in the middle period that makes getting dressed oh so maddening, especially when you are rushing to work in the morning!



This period is otherwise known as transition season, knowing what to wear during this time is tricky. After all, it’s too early to embrace cosy coats and heavy jumpers but the floaty dresses we’ve lived in for months don’t quite work either.

The solution is to ease your wardrobe into the new season with autumn/winter pieces you can also wear right now or layer in the colder months.

This blog post will take a look at some of the must-have trends and items from Debenhams which will work both now and later. The only question to ask yourself is which trend should I try first?

Animal magic

In case you missed the noise, animal print is a pretty big deal right now and I don’t think it will be budging anytime soon.

Leopard spots, tiger stripes, zebra and snake print are the favourite patterns at the moment and will stick around as we enter autumn, making for the ultimate star piece in your new season wardrobe.

If the idea of a statement coat is too shocking for your taste (it can look quite Bet Lynch if you’re not careful!), maybe investing in accessories like a sleek handbag that can be worn with all-black looks or complimentary prints.




Check Mate

Checks please! Tartan, plaid, tweed, gingham; these versatile patterns should be at the top of your autumn trends checklist, certainly is on mine! Cover up in a check coat or cosy up in Studio by Preen’s need-right-now jumper



Spice Tones

From tan to sludge, all you need to do is find the right hue for you, or go tonal in a top-to-toe effect. There’s no need to head over to the dark side just yet. Spice up your life with hot autumn hits. Add a dash of nutmeg to your look or go big and bold with a teddy coat. Mix a glossy chocolate leather coat with a peanut satin shirt, and tweed trousers.




Red Revisited

Red will never ever be dead! Set your wardrobe on fire with the favourite hot hue. Scarlet; post box; berry; dress head to toe in one of these look-at-me shades. Or go for a splash of rouge with red accessories, such as a bag or scarf.




Ankle boots

The leap from open-toe sandals to thigh-high boots might seem a little drastic at this time of year but that’s where the ankle variety comes into play. They are the perfect length to pair with wispy midi dresses to ruffle skirts, denim and cropped trousers. A pair of ankle boots promise to be the most useful shoe you’ll invest in this season.




To bag or not to bag

My firm favourite piece to spice up any outfit. From cross body to tote, Debenhams bag range will be sure to have something in the right style or shape to suit your needs! 




Midi dress

If you thought midi dresses were just reserved for summer, think again. A hero midi dress is a must-have during the transitional period because, not only does it make getting dressed a whole lot less complicated, but it promises to go with almost anything you already have stashed in your wardrobe. More of a casual girl, that’s not a problem, layer the dress under a blazer and you’re living the new-season dream. Alternatively, wear it with a jumper and boots for work or go solo with strappy party shoes by night.
