So Long Summer: Trends for the Season

My love affair with Jaeger began a year or so ago, when one morning I woke up and suddenly realised I was a grown up.

Don't get me wrong, I still have a soft spot for Topshop and the like, but I love Jaeger's well made, tailored pieces, and I love the effortlessly stylish look that those pieces create. What I don't love is the price tag, but luckily they have great sales!

So as you can imagine, I did a little happy dance when the invite below popped up in my inbox.

Shopping, pampering, and free booze? Yup, count me in.

The show was an introduction to the new collection and latest autumn trends. Apologies for the fuzzy mobile photos, there was wine involved. 

As I watched, I began to think about fashion trends, and how they relate to interior design.

More often than not, trends between the two are similar if not interchangeable. For instance, just look at the prevalence of mint green and neon this summer in both fashion and interiors.

This contemplation inspired me to translate Jaeger's autumn looks into the sphere of interior design.

Jaeger Floral Dress £199, Scott Wilson for Jaeger Gold Collar Necklace £120 - £220, H&M Home Cushion Cover £9.99, Ikea Oval Bowl £15

Usually a mention of floral will evoke thoughts of spring and sunshine, so this trend is quite an unexpected one. Pair floral prints with rich dark hues for a current aesthetic (a touch of gold adds even more drama).

Jaeger Leather Biker Jacket £399, Made Canape Leather Sofa £1,199, Zazzle Striped Lumbar Pillow $49.95, Z Gallerie Alston Pillow $99.95

Classic and practical, leather is a must have for autumn and winter (just don't over due it - a little goes a long way). Whether manifested in the form of a sofa or jacket, leather is like a dependable friend who never lets you down, even long after the "of the moment" dresses and tops disappear.

Jaeger Fuchsia Dress £199, John Lewis Lainie Armchair £699, Land of the Nod Kids' Floor Lamp £92

An injection of colour is the perfect remedy for the cold dark evenings of autumn and winter. A bit of fuchsia is a great way to brighten up a space - try an upholstered armchair, painted dresser, or wool throw.

Jaeger Velvet Dress £260, Iggy by £1,160, Habitat Phantom Footstool £350

Probably the perfect autumn fabric, velvet is soft, warm, and very trendy right now. On furniture, adding button tufting takes it up a notch (see green sofa below).

Can you think of more autumn fashion trends that are relevant to the interior design world?
