My Favourite Autumn 2012 Fashion Trends

As it's Autumn now I'm getting so excited to start wearing and layering up all my Wintery clothes. I much prefer Autumn and Winter clothes-wise because you can do so much more with your outfits. I love love layering my clothes in the colder months, I think it can make an outfit looks ten times better and give it more dimension. For example, shirts under jumpers, crop top jumpers over plain skater dresses and ankle socks over tights are just a few ways I'd style an outfit. 
I thought I'd do a post on my favourite Autumn trends this year... You probably all know about them already but I've also found some really cute pieces searching on line that I want to show you. 

At first, I wasn't quite sure about Tartan making a comeback but slowly I have become swayed. I do think that if it isn't done right it can look REALLY bad - a bit like a Boarding School uniform haha. So I wouldn't maybe think about wearing both the blazer and trousers in this as I think it's a little too much but if you're brave and can pull it off, why not? I've been really thinking to buy the H&M scarf as it can give a nice flash of Tartan to a Winter outfit and would look amazing with a Khaki coat. 
Also loving the Fashion Union shirt because of the difference with the leather collar and Gold chain detailing - so affordable too! I would definitely recommend trying Tartan out, but I can see why it's not to everybody's taste so perhaps the subtlety of the Green and Blue Tartan Topshop shirt would be an easy way to break in to this trend.

I was obsessed with Velvet last year, and I still am. Especially, Black and Oxblood coloured Velvet. I haven't really experimented with any other colours yet. Velvet clothes are perfect for the chilly months and they have that real cosy feeling about them. Unlike Tartan, I think this trend is a lot more versatile when it comes to dressing. There are even Velvet Dr. Marten's! They look a lot similar to the boots I picked up from H&M a few weeks ago but are triple the price - still love the dainty floral pattern on them though. 
Also a big factor I love about Velvet is the way you can layer it up with different textures in an outfit. For example, a Velvet Bralet and Chiffon skirt would look beautiful. The Topshop leotard above would also be perfect for layering under a high-waisted skirt or shorts... even trousers. I'm going to have to stop myself from buying everything Velvet this Winter!

Burgundy, Wine, Dark Red, Maroon, Oxblood - I've heard so many names for this colour now I don't know what to call it anymore. I've gone for Oxblood as that's what I've been seeing more recently. This is literally my favourite colour to dress in. I think it's a really easy and flattering colour for anyone to wear. I prefer it a lot more than wearing bright Red, I don't even have one piece of Red clothing in my wardrobe that's how much I hate Red! This colour just instantly reminds me of Autumn, along with Khaki, Brown and Tan. This colour is literally everywhere in the shops - perfect for the festive season. I think everyone should at least have one piece in their wardrobe that's this colour purely because you can dress it down, and also dress it up and makes a nice change from boring Black's and Brown's. Here are some pieces I found online at the moment that I fell in love with!
