What trends for autumn?

I always get caught out and buy autumn/winter stuff too late and then nothing is in stock.

Any fashionistas out there who can show me what will be "in" this autumn?

So i've been reading.........Go glamour for A/W, lots of Luxe, animal print <sorry all those who hate a bit of leopard>, but its here to stay apparently, in anything from shoes/handbags to belts.

FUR will be huge again - faux fur coats, hats, handbags

Brights will stay, but in deeper autumnal colours - bright teals/pinks/purples.

Anything Vintage, or with a vintage feel. Lace is coming through, on overlays etc....pearls also, as detailing on shirts jackets etc.

Bird prints / butterfly prints are also going to be big, on sheer shirts etc - see asos.

Trousers are pencil tailored, or palazzo (urgh). Skirts are to the knee - you'll see alot of heavily pleated silk numbers, but beware they are hard to pull off. Jackets/Blazers are back to fitted (away from boyfriend cut).

The general feel I think is vintage - think old fashioned aeroplane meets luxe hollywood.

Does that make ANY sense at all?!

But don't take my word for it!

I can't wait for autumn - I have a whole load of Mint Velvet stuff from last year that I haven't worn yet.
Fed up of this pissy warm rain!
