What To Sew On The First Day Of Autumn: Fashion Trends 2014

It’s the official first day of Autumn and I certainly haven’t got the wintry blues! I’m just excited to get those gorgeous, thick fabrics out. I don’t know about you, but I definitely dress better in winter than I do in summer. Fact.

As autumn arrives, I like to know what I ought to be wearing to stay ahead of the curve, so here’s a little round up of autumn fashion trends 2014 as seen on the catwalks and some ideas of what we should be making to be “on trend”.

Blanket Scarves

Huge fan of this trend – anything that makes it basically acceptable to wear your duvet in public is fine by me! It’s one of the easiest things to make with bits of spare fabrics EVER. 

Here are some examples as seen on Burberry, Sacai and Issa runways, and if you’re feeling a little flush, I have to plug my gorgeous friend Arlette Lee, who has developed the most amazing line of baby Alpaca blanket scarves, known as Ruanas. She swears by them (as do a couple of major celebs I might add).
