Make the Transition: Turn over a new leaf this fall
Autumn winter is about eclectic chic with a bourgeois streak. Think heritage tweeds, argyle knits, and dressing like a modern-day Lady Di in directional separates with zingy colour pops. Jacket by Victoria Beckham, €1645, Brown Thomas.

With the evenings closing in and a welcome chill in the air, it’s time to embrace the new season now. There’s a modern, eclectic feel and a laid-back sophistication to the season’s most wearable trends, so fall into autumn with these failsafe picks that you can buy now and wear through winter. Carolyn Moore reports.

Pussy Galore

The big girls blouse is back with a bang this season; the flouncier and fancier the better. Get yourself all tied up in a pussy-bow blouse, and dress it up or down. €47, Oasis.

If you buy one thing this season, make it a check blazer. It’ll keep your workwear on point and add that essential bourgeois twist to your weekend casuals. Check blazer, €69, Miss Selfridge.
