Trend Tuesdays: Autum/Winter must haves

Fashion shows can flash by in a whirl of glitz and glam then before you know it, you're in the shops and you don't have a clue what to buy. If this sounds familiar, try to start off creating a capsule wardrobe; choose key items for each of your favourite trends and build looks around it.
Blanket wrap: These were absolutely everywhere on the runways and they will be a firm favourite this season because they are just so cosy! Wear with jeans and a simple top or even add to a fitted trouser suit to brighten up your work wear. Just make sure the colours are toned down and compliment your suit.
Faux fur: Faux fur was injected into coats and accessories for some chic outerwear. Perfect for keeping warm this season and the elegant fabric speaks for itself. If you are worried about a faux fur coat making you look bulky, opt for a scarf or hat in the trend instead.
Parka coat: This is the coat of the season and looks good on everyone. The drawstring waist gives shape to the coat so it won't swamp you or look unflattering. Try picking a neutral, dark colour which will be versatile with all outfits.
Metallic flats: Finally, flats are in and we intend to wear them as long as possible before the heels of SS15 come back in! These were debuted at Coco Chanel and are smart enough to wear for work but can also suit a more casual outfit.
Red dress: We spoke recently about red as this seasons colour which is all the more reason to buy that gorgeous maybe slightly too expensive dress. You deserve it! Be sure to keep the design simple and fitted and you will have every eye in the room glued to you!
