I'm thinking a nice trouser, or skirt, with a top and possibly some knitwear.

Team it with some shoes or boots and if you have too much stuff to fit in your pockets, I have heard lots of people are going to be carrying bags.

I don't belong here do I....

Wellies. Dungarees. Straw Hat.

Judging by the new next directory for A/W it includes lots of leather trim again this year.. ie; leather or faux leather sleeves on jumpers or tunics, down the side of leggings or even trim on collars & pockets.

Lots of leggings & tunic style tops & jumpers, peplum's still about, dark tweedy patterns. Lots of grey & black. Less sparkly than last A/W not so much army camo or rock chic thankfully.gringrin

I love A/W fashion.

Marking my place in the hope some non piss takers have some words of wisdom!

Hope it all isn't skinny leather jeans though. I'm a bit of a fatty.

LadyMilfordHaven Fri 26-Jul-13 19:39:57

Don't tell people how to behave.
