As we roll into the month of september, I could smell and feel the autumn winds and this indicates a change in wardrobe from the summer brighter colurs and prints to a dull and darker shades.
Apart from the normal darker shades like dull brown, black, dark grey etc their are more new and lovely colours this autumn i.e Purple heart, loose pink ( closer to light peach), Iron (its brown nor black), Normad ( a neutral colour) , Burnt Sienne ( its the shade of autumn sunset an earlier shade of last season tangerine),
Dull olive, Magolica blue, ( a blend of teal and navy), Cream Brucee ( delicate blend of ivory beige and grey).
The look for this autumn is classified into five categories, Vintage look, Classic look, Modern mix look, Rock n Roll look, the bohochic look and the Seventies look.
Looking around I realised that Velvet is in this autumn can u imagine but I noticed its more of the devore one which is lighter. They come in dresses, leggings, skirts and even in boleros. Knits are also very in, chunky knits and oversized scarves worn in layers.
Cocktail dresses are also in this time of the year but this season it's all about frivolous and escapist glamour with puffed sleeves.
Hanky hem tops or assymetric tops are also in with checked tunics and as usual statement frill tops and exagerated drapes. Watch out also for clothes with well defined shoulders ( shoulder pads).
Skirts are in flared shapes this season, chunky accessories are still in, more of long boots and printed leggings.
Denim a friend that is always in no mater the season is also on for autumn.


  1. yes, i was shocked when i saw velvelts on alexander mcqueen debuts collections. i cant buy them cos it keeps remebering me of my grand mother she still wears velvet suits. i love the assymetric tops and puffed arm tops they r lovely, at least its autumn with a touch not the conventional things we see every year.

  2. I love velvets and coudroy, I have a velvet pants that have kept since 1996, its now the best time to use them.
    Oversized scarves is something I love so much since last year have being so addicted to them.

  3. I love evrything about this fall trend, from hippy flared skirts to hanky tops and wild coloured leggings its just too lovely.

  4. I prefare the animal print collection this year, I also agree with you about the colours they are more subtle and mature compare to last year glam n shine.
    I have been looking around for this years look and now I got them because I dnt want to stick to just one look my dress code this season is all the looks. Thanks Buks

  5. I appreciate the coming back of velvet av always longed for it cos it feels very warm on yhe skin and cuddly for me.

  6. The fall trend for this year is still the best, nice blends of colour and unique design.

  7. Its the exact copy of fashion in d 70s and 80s but with a unique look.
    I cannt just wait to get my paycheck and do my fall shopping.
