The style season starts here: everything you need to know fr 11 Months ago  
The fashion magazines have released their Autumn bumper editions, essential for the style-conscious. Think rhinestones, Basquiat – and being ‘excited AF’ for autumn

This season’s look

You’re going to need a trousersuit. Think campus, not boardroom: Vogue champions the “seventies geography prof” corduroy trousersuit while Harpers is feeling the Maxmara velvet double-breasted number. “Ditch your scruffs and start dressing like the boss you’ve always wanted to be,” says Glamour. Confusingly, you’re also going to need sequins. In Love, editor Katie Grand talks up the “not been to bed yet” chic of a sparkly gown for day. Harpers, helpfully, suggests how to blend the two, teaming Saint Laurent’s £6,855 rhinestone boots with a trousersuit. Everyone agrees that warm-hued neutrals replace the cool tones of grey, navy and white: think mustard, tan, chestnut, burgundy and oxblood. The jury is out on how much flesh to show, though. Vogue celebrates the demure “full body stretch” silhouette (high-neck sweater, long skirt whose hem covers the top of your boots), but in Love, Karen Elson is naked and Alexa Chung topless. Key details on which we have consensus are: daytime shoes should have a low heel and a high front (the opposite of toe cleavage, as it were – a high neckline for your foot), while for evening it’s all about a skintight over-the-knee boot. This is essentially a silk stocking with a stiletto heel attached. Oh, and you’ll need a cardie. “Crop it, embroider it and puff the sleeves: the cardigan is back,” says Vogue.

In Vogue, the shoot styled by Kate Moss – the one with the bare bottom in it, naturally – opens with a beaded silk Chanel dress for a cool £23,330. The Miu Miu transparent PVC trench (£1,240) is everywhere, as is the Chloé red velvet dresswith heart-shaped cut-out at the neckline (£1,670), but both of those will spark a thousand high-street imitations before September is out, so why not save your pennies for the Gucci AC/DC jumpsuit with tailcoat, as seen in Red (£3,650).

What you might actually buy

We’ll have to wait till next month for the bargains – the October issues are traditionally the high-street showcases – but Vogue has several high-street versions of this season’s must-have Prince of Wales check blazer, of which the standout appears to be the Marks & Spencer Autograph £79 version. An H&M dark-floral chiffon blouse, £20, and the Sherpa jacket by Levi’s, £110, are also worth racing for. Red draws attention to Zara’s excellent selection of fancy new-season sock boots.
