Went shopping after work tonight and a lot of the autumn stuff was in the shops. How do you know what the fashion is going to be? Is there a website that can talk me through it? Thanks for any help.

Wondered about this and this.

From what I've seen, it is going to be A-line leather skirts; elbow patches on jackets and jumpers, and ponchos. hmm

Every magazine (which I don't often buy but they are all on-line) will have a Hot Looks/Key Trends for Autumn next month.

I like both of those - very useful but not necessarily 'fashion'.

Oh oh! I did elbow patches in the 70's!! Not against an a line skirt but leather hmmm. Did buy a Grazia mag today but maybe need to look at more. Decided I had enough summer clothes plus its freezing so thought i would think out my next clothes. Thanks.

Well, when I say fashion, I really just dont want to be unfashionable so thanks for liking those smile

I reckon it will be ankle socks and court shoes.

I feel the same about ponchos. I had one years ago and my brother used to follow me around singing Malpaso Man.

Silk printed trousers anyone, I often think the fashion editors are taking the piss to see if they can actually convince some prat to buy this stuff.

Asos have got some ideas.

I think the best rule is to buy what you like out of what's out there. What's 'on-trend' (ugh) rarely suits me, but this rule serves me well. It's not school anymore, nobody will mock you for having the 'wrong' shoes.

Well, I agree with buying what suits you and what you like and I'm not worried about people mocking me but I'd still rather wear things that arent what you're granny would be wearing!
