THE FASHION TREND OF AUTUMN

For the early season, we’re dreaming of a comfortable, autumnal wardrobe inspired by the Far West. Cocooning fabrics, layering and utility-inspired pieces bring a fresh breath of western spirit.
Long, floral skirts worn with Wellington boots, tartan shirts hidden under thick cardigans and Prince of Wales jackets, thick socks slipped on under trainers: discover Le Bon Marché's essential selection of perfect rustic autumnal pieces.

MIX & MATCH

Dare to mix patterns this autumn. Invent new combinations by wearing checks – on a tartan shirt or belted Prince of Wales jacket – with a floral herbarium-style print on a skirt, dress or floaty blouse.

The season’s second biggest trend is playing with unexpected combos. Sling on a sleeveless overcoat, a long cardigan, a jacquard jumper, a poncho or a big winter coat to add a daring touch to a classic style.

FABRICS & ACCESSORIES

When it comes to fabrics, velvet is back with a vengeance. Show it off on a blazer, an oversized shirt or flared trousers in an organic palette of pale pink or ochre, or even a brighter shade such as teal.

As for accessories, the Wellington boot is back in its almost classic style, worn short with a pair of woollen socks. Other options include traditional cowboy boots or plain trainers in neutral shades inspired by autumn leaves.
