5 hot trends for Autumn

Ready to shop the new season? We've picked out five trends we love, with an option for every budget, and all available at Westgate Oxford (or if you can't be bothered to move, online!).

THE TREND… RED

Whether it’s due to the red robes in The Handmaid’s Tale, the red dress dancing lady emoji or Little Red Riding Hood, there’s no escaping scarlet this season. And hurray for that because as the days get ever greyer, a pop of primary colour is a real tonic.

Steal

OK, it's not real suede - c'mon what do you expect for £49.99?! - but this biker jacket will add a shot of pizzazz to any old jeans and T-shirt combo.
£49.99

Standard

This & Other Stories wrap dress is supremely flattering. Tip: it'll look amazing with leopard-print ankle boots.
£79

Buy now

SPLURGE

How cool are these? It's hard to think of an outfit these hush boots won't instantly update. Gratifyingly, the heel is low enough to be practical as well as stylish.
£185

THE TREND… UPBEAT SLOGANS

This autumn you can let your top do the talking – and these jolly mantras mean that even if you’re in a massive mood it at least sounds like you’re a lovely little ray of sunshine. Result!

Steal

We're feeling good about this crisp white tee from River Island. Just add jeans and a wide smile.
£16

Buy now

Standard

Sugarhill Brighton create a bright'n'breezy range of slogan sweatshirts from their seaside studio (god, I love alliteration). This one is, well, magnifique.
£45

Buy now

Splurge

Loving the muted tone of this long-sleeved tee. Don't forget to push up those sleeves to nail your modern casual vibe.
£75

Buy now

 

THE TREND… LEOPARD PRINT

Anyone who’s stepped into a busy bar or restaurant recently and wondered if they’ve walked in on a Bet Lynch convention will have clocked that leopard-print is ubiquitous this season. Here’s how to get a dash of animal magic in your life.

Steal

This Mango skirt is cracking value at £35.99. Just add white trainers and T-shirt, black biker jacket and go, go, go.
£35.99

Buy now

Standard

No need to put the central heating on just yet - this mohair and wool blend & Other Stories sweater is deliciously cosy.
£69

Buy now

Splurge

How are these for statement courts?! We love the modern shape for Autumn – half shoe, half ankle boot – and the fact that they’ll look equally good in the office or out on the town.
£295

THE TREND… DAYTIME METALLICS

Don’t save your show-stopping sequins and shimmer for evening – these days sparkle is acceptable even when you’re eating your Cornflakes. Here are three pieces to help keep you twinkly all day.

Steal

This New Look top is very subtle - it's basically the gateway drug of daytime metallics. Also available in pink.
£12.99

Buy now

Standard

How cool is this? This Mango sequinned pencil skirt in the prettiest aqua shade works with white, black or navy. Make sure you keep the rest of your outfit ultra-simple.
£69.99

Buy now

Splurge

Think of metallics as a neutral - they'll go with anything. Case in point, this silver leather clutch from Mint Velvet.
£99

Buy now

 

THE TREND… MIDI SKIRTS

This skirt length is very much here to stay – are midi-skirts the new jeans, I wonder? I wear mine with a simple white T shirt and trainers, or ankle boots on colder days.

Steal

There's ever more variations on the pleated midi this season - this floral print from & Other Stories is pleasingly different.
£49

Buy now

Standard

I've got a thing for green, can you tell? This Cos wrap skirt is ultra flattering and also comes in a stunning painterly print.
£69

Buy now

Splurge

Shall we go hell for leather? This isn't rock chick style though, it's a more elegant, expensive take, thanks to the midi length hem. This one's from Whistles at John Lewis.
£239.20
