Biscuit founder Amanda takes us through her inspiration for the new season...
The only way to make the onset of winter more bearable is the thought of updating our autumn wardrobes. It is still warm outside and we are not yet reliant on heavy coats, hats and gloves yet, so we can show off the new beautiful season with clothes to die for.
Here are my thoughts....
Bringing the outside in. Inspiring me through Autumn is always the outside. I am slightly obsessed with my garden and all that it produces. I am no way a professional gardener but I do like to dig to relieve stress and I do love flowers from my garden inside.
Where do you start with the trends of this autumn? Prints..prints..prints!!
The printed dress, the printed shirt or the printed skirt, mismatched, matching, worn together or not is where it is at. The dress/skirt and oversized jumper combo is a great way to get into prints without shouting about it.
You can not go anywhere without seeing an animal print of some sort. Dare I say that leopard is now a basic? Wear it like black or a neutral. Add colour if you are braver. Turquoise leopard from our new french brand Idano, is a bestseller.
Leopard love can be construed in a different and easier way with the Tara Jarmon leopard dress.
Just you wait for the new animal prints as the season goes on and taking us into next year.
Cords have made a comeback with style. Bright jumbo cord trousers, cropped at the ankle and wide legged are the most desirable. We love them from Hartford and another new brand Co'Couture. Wear them with a cosy rollneck and boots.
Hartford Paprika Cords , £165
Everyone must have a cosy jumper or two in their cupboard. This season offers them aplenty.
Hartford Malle Knit , £145
Faux Fur is everywhere on the high street and we have a fair few on offer at Biscuit. You cannot go far into the shops without noticing the beautiful coats from Ichi in honey and black.
