Be on trend this Autumn with these 5 wardrobe staples

 A variety of colours, styles and materials hit the catwalks for autumn/winter 2013, and now the cold has come it’s finally time to get out and show them off. Out of the huge number of designs it seems these five key elements have been the ones to prove the most success both on the catwalk and on the high street. Add these additions to your wardrobe this season and you’ll be sure to be on trend over these colder months.

1. The pink coat

Originally inspired on the catwalk by a number of designers including John Rocha, Paul Smith and Celine, but now it has also hit our high streets to suit everyone’s budgets. From fuchsia to pastels any pink can work, so choose the colour that flatters you.

2. Animal print

The likes of John Paul Gaultier and Moschino showed their love of animal print on the catwalk for this autumn, from all over leopard head to toe, to hints of print in gloves, hats and other accessorises. So choose how bold you want to be this autumn.

4. Florals

Erdem and Dolce and Gabbana portrayed the change in florals perfectly with dark base colours topped with deep vibrant patterns. Look for navy, blacks and greens against vivid reds and blues to create their effect.

5. Fur and feathers

Alexander McQueen went all out with his use of fur and feathers this autumn and Gucci also created some luxury fur coats to keep you warm and stylish this winter. But again look to high street stored like Topshop for a variety of fur coats, jackets and gilets to get the look without spending your month’s wage.
