ASOS:3 WAYS TO WEAR CORDUROY

We’ve been harping on about corduroy for a while now. Mostly because we’re pretty thrilled it’s back. From spring’s wide-stride jumbo cord tailoring to summer’s lightweight jackets, the past two seasons have reeled us in, hook, line and sinker. And now, for AW18, the 70s’ most-famous fabric has really dialled it up. From slick suiting to so-now animal prints, we bring you three of the greatest ways to wear yours now.

Tailor made
A corduroy suit may not sound like a go-to going-out outfit. That was until now. Suit up in a sweet-as shade – lilac – and throw in the animal print of the season – hey, zebra – et voila, you have yourself a BNO special. Swerve any sort of 70s <span class=”woR”>accessories</span><span class=”woD”>A fashion accessory is an item used to contribute, in a secondary manner, to the wearer’s outfit, often used to complete an outfit and chosen to specifically complement the wearer’s look.</span> to keep the whole thing ultra-mod, meaning jewels and shoes are best served sparkly.

Cosy corner
There’s always those weird first few Sundays of autumn, when you throw on your favourite track pants and realise absolutely none of your coats look right with such chill wear. It’s too warm for that full-on duvet <span class=”woR”>jacket</span><span class=”woD”>A jacket is a mid stomach length garment for the upper body. A jacket typically has sleeves, and fastens in the front or slightly on the side. A jacket is generally lighter, tighter-fitting, and less insulating than a coat, which is outerwear. Some jackets are fashionable, while others serve as protective clothing.</span>, but your smart coats seem totally wrong, too. Enter the lightweight, smart-but-slouchy cord coat. Just add chunky dad trainers for full new-season excellence.

Plush pair
<span class=”woR”>skirt</span><span class=”woD”>A skirt is a tube- or cone-shaped garment that hangs from the waist or hips and covers all or part of the legs. The hemline of skirts can vary from micro to floor-length and can vary according to cultural conceptions of modesty and aesthetics as well as the wearer’s personal taste, which can be influenced by such factors as fashion and social context. Most skirts are self-standing garments, but some skirt-looking panels may be part of another garment such as leggings, shorts, and swimsuits.</span> suits get supercharged for AW18 with the addition of two very important details: leopard print and cute-as corduroy. If a co-ord felt too prissy for you last season, the addition of those 70s cord and borg-collar vibes alongside the 80s power print make the whole look feel very fresh and very cool. A ladylike bag and 20 denier tights just earned this getup an invite to dinner tonight.

ASOS:THE NEW DENIM DOUBLE-UP

The greatest trade-off for leaving that glorious hot summer behind has got to be reuniting with all the <span class=”woR”>denim</span><span class=”woD”>Denim[1] is a sturdy cotton warp-faced[2] twill textile in which the weft passes under two or more warp threads. This twill weaving produces the familiar diagonal ribbing of the denim that distinguishes it from cotton duck (a linen canvas).</span> goods again, right? Very right. So what about <span class=”woR”>jeans</span><span class=”woD”>Jeans are trousers typically made from denim or dungaree cloth. Often the term “jeans” refers to a particular style of pants, called “blue jeans,” which were invented by Jacob Davis in 1871[1] and patented by Davis and Levi Strauss on May 20, 1873. Originally designed for cowboys and miners, jeans became popular in the 1950s among teenagers, especially members of the greaser subculture.</span> feels new for AW18? What is it that’s going to make our beloved weekend wear feel so fresh? May we present…

First up we’ve gotta talk about the fit and the wash. That loose-fit <span class=”woR”>jacket</span><span class=”woD”>A jacket is a mid stomach length garment for the upper body. A jacket typically has sleeves, and fastens in the front or slightly on the side. A jacket is generally lighter, tighter-fitting, and less insulating than a coat, which is outerwear. Some jackets are fashionable, while others serve as protective clothing.</span> and exaggerated mom shape? Hella 80s. As is that acid-wash shade, made all the more punchy when worn as a denim duo. The most chic way to wear yours now is not to go the whole hog with the throwback gear – this is not, after all, a fancy-dress party. It’s just your normal fancy life. So add a v autumnal mustard knit, a grown-up printed clutch and so-2018 dad sneakers. Sunday pub lunches, come at us.

ASOS:HOW ASOSERS DO AUTUMN LAYERS

Autumn has signalled its arrival by dropping a few leaves here and there, which means it’s officially time to start playing the layer game (and practicing your pumpkin-carving skills, obvs). So, from <span class=”woR”>coats</span><span class=”woD”>A coat is a garment worn by both men and women,[1] for warmth or fashion. Coats typically have long sleeves and are open down the front, closing by means of buttons, zippers, hook-and-loop fasteners, toggles, a belt, or a combination of some of these. Other possible features include collars, shoulder straps and hoods.</span> and jackets to cosy knitwear, here’s how ASOSers are wearing things over other things this season.

Outerwear doesn’t get much more seasonal than this burgundy number. Follow Junior Creative Kate’s lead and play with proportions by layering a longline trench coat over your outfit – which in this case means getting onboard with the neon trend, courtesy of an apple green roll-neck paired with black tailored trousers. Slip on some trainers, boots or flats and you’ve got yourself a solid October look.

Fashion Assistant Philippa’s faux-fur coat is so autumnal, we can almost smell the pumpkin-spice latte. Aside from being seriously strokable, it’s also got that seasonal, burnt orange thing going on, which we’re thoroughly enjoying. The chunky jumper underneath keeps things snug, while the raw-hemmed <span class=”woR”>jeans</span><span class=”woD”>Jeans are trousers typically made from denim or dungaree cloth. Often the term “jeans” refers to a particular style of pants, called “blue jeans,” which were invented by Jacob Davis in 1871[1] and patented by Davis and Levi Strauss on May 20, 1873. Originally designed for cowboys and miners, jeans became popular in the 1950s among teenagers, especially members of the greaser subculture.</span> and pointed boots add a sassy edge.

Come on, you didn’t really think we’d leave animal print out of this, did you? You might not immediately associate leopard spots with autumn, but there’s no denying they look hella good on a trench coat. Photographer Lacey accessorises hers with a simple gold watch and a pair of white trainers. The blue jeans peeking out from underneath are a nice touch, too.

It’s not all about outerwear, as demonstrated by ASOS Magazine Production Assistant Beth and her powder blue jumper. This one’s a great option for those crisp October days when it’s cold, but not that cold. The roll-neck provides just the right amount of cosy coverage, while the dropped shoulders are giving us major just-threw-it-on vibes. Props for pairing with black mom jeans and Nikes, too.

OK, so it might be a little early to be planning our bonfire-night attire, but just look how cute Junior Project Manager Hannah’s puffer <span class=”woR”>jacket</span><span class=”woD”>A jacket is a mid stomach length garment for the upper body.

Colour pops come courtesy of a printed headband and brightly coloured jumper worn underneath. We predict fireworks.

ASOS: THE NEW SHAPES OF PARIS FASHION WEEK

Fashion month: it’s a wrap. And the final stop, Paris, served up autumn wardrobe inspiration in spades, thanks both to the chillier temperatures and a noticeable step change towards a more wearable, functional way of dressing. The big news in Paris was, of course, Hedi Slimane’s controversial debut Celine collection and its stark departure from the brand’s signature loose-fitting silhouettes in favour of thigh-skimming party dresses and bodycon cuts. The outrage amongst the devotees of former Celine designer Phoebe Philo was mighty and the street-style set pledged their allegiance via XXL blazers, functional boxy bags and supersized puffer jackets. To wrap up our fashion month coverage, here’s our round-up of the new key shapes of the season, as seen on the streets and runways of Paris.

The new puffer
Puffer jackets have been a major feature ever since Demna Gvasalia put them on the runway at Balenciaga a few seasons ago. But this season they got a grown-up update on the streets, appearing in oversized bomber-jacket styles and in bright hues and luxe fabrics like velvet and cord. How to wear them? Pair with chunky dad sneakers for a casual look, or team a cord version with a contrasting pair of corduroy flares and a baker boy hat to nail that 70s look.

The XXL blazer
When it came to tailoring, supersized was the order of the day, with big shoulder pads, long lengths and oversized silhouettes. Follow this street-styler’s lead and try your XXL blazer on its own as a <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span>, adding an over-the-knee sock boot and a camel turtleneck underneath when you need some warmer layers. Or for a more casual take, throw it on with a half-zip jumper, straight-leg jeans and trainers.

The box bag
The Paris streets were awash with boxy little lunchbox-style bags like the ones you used to keep your sandwiches in in primary school. The best thing about a small bag? It forces you to keep your everyday essentials to a minimum. Choose a fun colour to brighten up a black midi <span class=”woR”>skirt</span><span class=”woD”>A skirt is a tube- or cone-shaped garment that hangs from the waist or hips and covers all or part of the legs. The hemline of skirts can vary from micro to floor-length and can vary according to cultural conceptions of modesty and aesthetics as well as the wearer’s personal taste, which can be influenced by such factors as fashion and social context. Most skirts are self-standing garments, but some skirt-looking panels may be part of another garment such as leggings, shorts, and swimsuits.</span>, or opt for something neutral to keep your look tonal.

The mega frill
Paris is known for its pared-back elegance compared to the flamboyant style of Milan. But not this season, for Gucci decamped from the Italian capital to show in Paris for the very first time, bringing its unique brand of flamenco flounce that’s perfect for party season. Gucci did, however, tone down its metallics and vivacious colours, instead showing its frills in a classic cream hue. Take their lead and wear your frills on your sleeves or as a ruffle detail on a shirt, worn with faded <span class=”woR”>jeans</span><span class=”woD”>Jeans are trousers typically made from denim or dungaree cloth. Often the term “jeans” refers to a particular style of pants, called “blue jeans,” which were invented by Jacob Davis in 1871[1] and patented by Davis and Levi Strauss on May 20, 1873. Originally designed for cowboys and miners, jeans became popular in the 1950s among teenagers, especially members of the greaser subculture.</span> for daytime and a mini skirt and chunky boots for night.

The bob
Who says fashion week trends have to just be about clothes? This season’s hair is all about the bob, and what better way to mark the start of autumn than with a fresh new chop? Rather than the shaggy bob Parisiennes are renowned for, this new take is heavy on the fringe and slightly 70s in look. Try it gently curled around the face (perfect with the aforementioned baker boy cap and corduroy bomber). We’re booking our appointment now.

To help empower you to explore your style and embrace the many sides of yourself, meet our campaign star, Jazzelle, whose aesthetic knows no bounds.

Driven by the need to explore every side of herself, the Detroit-born model’s restless self-discovery makes her an inspiring totem for unapologetic self-expression.

What does self-expression mean to you?
Self-expression means freedom to be myself; it means to live freely. It’s about having the ability to not only break the confines of societal standards, but your own as well! Self-expression allows you to break down barriers in order to grow.

What would you say makes you unique?
I mean I obviously have a unique look, but what makes me really different is my perspective, and how I see the world. I’ve created a world of my own in my head, that makes me feel safe no matter what I’m doing or where I’m at. That safety opens up my mind to take in more of the world, rather than being held back by fear and negativity. That attitude is what got me out of my hometown and into my dreams. It wasn’t taught to me by anyone – it’s just organically me.

Who and what inspires you?
I’m inspired by people with bold, unapologetic styles and attitudes. I’m inspired by the people who are mostly ignored by the world but still find a way to shine. I’m inspired by people who have confidence in themselves!

ASOS:NEW DROP: EMORY PARK

We’re all about that So-Cal vibe, but channelling it can be tricky when dealing with uninspiring grey skies and apocalyptic rain clouds (ah, the good old British weather). Luckily, though, LA-based label Emory Park has arrived from across the pond to give us a masterclass in statement dressing, whatever the weather. So, get ready to throw caution to the autumn wind with these new-season babies.

If you thought you’d seen the last of vinyl, think again. From Marni to Moschino, the AW18 runways have been serving up lots of looks in the delightfully shiny fabric. Putting its own twist on the trend, Emory Park’s slick, glossy trousers go with just about anything. We’re obsessed with its take on leopard print, too. This <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span> is a look all in itself, so all you have to do is zip it up and lace on a pair of trainers.

Bold checks are up next and this 90s-inspired outfit is about to get you right in the Clueless feels.

ASOS:WHAT WE LEARNED AT LONDON FASHION WEEK

From bum bags big enough to double as weekend holdalls to millinery decorated with sink plungers and kitchen whisks (thank you, Matty Bovan), of the four cities on the <span class=”woR”>fashion</span><span class=”woD”>Fashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behaviour and the newest creations of textile designers.</span> month calendar, it’s London that really pushes the envelope and inspires fresh ways to amp up our wardrobes. It’s an energy that feeds through from the runways of the capital’s fledgeling designers (Clio Peppiatt, Halpern, Rejina Pyo) to the street-style set as they pull out their liveliest looks. So, after five days of shows and an endless stream of inspo, here are all the things we learned at London Fashion Week.

Double tartan = smiles all round
Fact: tartan was everywhere amongst showgoers this season. Via suiting, maxi dresses and kilt skirts, the Braveheart effect was real. But it was the street-stylers who took things one step further with clashing tartan that really won us over. Follow their lead with mismatched blazers and skirts, and swap in a pair of tartan trousers and combat boots when winter hits. Oh, and you know what else is good? Tartan + leopard print. Give it a try, we dare you.

A little neon goes a long way
We’re totally on board with the return of all things fluoro, and it looks like we’re not the only ones. And if head-to-toe dayglow isn’t your thing, then let these stylish ladies give you a lesson in how to dip your toe into the neon world. Try coordinating a softly fluoro-green turtleneck with a matching checked mini, which you can dress down with a corduroy jacket and Dr. Martens, or swap out with a tweed <span class=”woR”>jacket</span><span class=”woD”>A jacket is a mid stomach length garment for the upper body. A jacket typically has sleeves, and fastens in the front or slightly on the side. A jacket is generally lighter, tighter-fitting, and less insulating than a coat, which is outerwear. Some jackets are fashionable, while others serve as protective clothing.</span> and patent loafers for extra polish. While we’re not usually ones for matching accessories, when they’re in a punchy neon hue, it’s a different thing entirely. So, go for neon mules with a matching beaded drawstring bag.

The animal-print trend has got some new recruits
Riccardo Tisci’s first runway collection for Burberry was one of the most buzzed-about shows of the season. Would he weave in any of his signature hallmarks from his Givenchy days or start completely afresh? Well, it turned out it was Bambi (star of Givenchy’s iconic sweatshirts circa 2013) who made an appearance and with it a fresh addition to the reigning animal-print trend. And it’s not just fawn prints joining the fashion animal kingdom, cow prints are also now on the agenda, too.

Nightie dressing works for autumn, too
The arrival of billowy nightie-style dresses was one of our favourite <span class=”woR”>summer</span><span class=”woD”>Summer is the hottest of the four temperate seasons, falling between spring and autumn. At the summer solstice, the days are longest and the nights are shortest, with day-length decreasing as the season progresses after the solstice. The date of the beginning of summer varies according to climate, tradition and culture, but when it is summer in the Northern Hemisphere, it is winter in the Southern Hemisphere, and vice versa.</span> trends, so we’re excited to see some solid cases for carrying the look through to autumn. How to make it work as the temperatures drop? Go for floaty long-sleeved styles with floor-grazing hemlines and swap out your summer sandals for knee-high boots, then throw on a long trench and, voila, you’re ready to roll.

Bum bags are only getting bigger
And by that we mean both figuratively and literally. If you thought the bum-bag trend was going to burst in the bubble of the third summer of love, then think again. It turns out it’s got legs well beyond festivals and summer holidays. At Matty Bovan that came via supersized versions complete with waist belts to support all that extra baggage. And amongst the street-stylers, it got a chic update in the form of belt bags worn with suiting and high-waisted maxi skirts.

Boiler suits + checks? ✔
Running a close second to tartan as the season’s most ubiquitous street-style trend at fashion month so far, the boiler suit has cropped up in a rainbow of hues in New York and London. And if the trend still frightens you a little bit, we’ve spotted a surefire way to make sure you’re not going to be mistaken for the person booked to fix your neighbour’s boiler. The secret is in the checks. First that came in the form of a belted button-up version, and then in the addition of a checked coat over a white zip-up style. Well played.

The party mini is back, baby
Bookmark this in your festive season style file: the mini party dress is back. And this time it’s not just for after-dark shenanigans, as this showgoer proves. Play up the 80s vibes with puff sleeves and a retro woodgrain print, then slide on some kitten-heel mules, or make like Lily Allen circa 2007 with a pair of trainers, this time, the chunkier the better. On the runway, Christopher Kane’s take came in the form of lacy cutouts. Just add an oversized faux-fur coat and sheer tights and you’ll be party-season ready.

ASOS: 5 ACCESSORY TRENDS FROM MILAN FASHION WEEK

As Milan <span class=”woR”>fashion</span><span class=”woD”>Fashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behaviour and the newest creations of textile designers.</span> Week draws to a close, and the editors and FROWers make their way to Paris with bellies full of burrata, we’re taking a moment to praise the city for its exceptional accessory game this week. The street-style set were out with arm candy and shoe inspiration aplenty. Here are some of the very best…

Bun hun
While a low bun looks beyond chic from the front, the worst is when you catch a glimpse of the back of it in a mirror and realise it isn’t the full, ballerina-style chignon you thought it was. Well, help is at hand for those of us lacking a thicker mop, and it’s this scarf trick. Make like Caroline Daur and tie yours around and over said bun and let the ends loosely hang below.

Square up
The 90s have given us a lot of great accessory throwbacks over the last year or two, from scrunchies and backpacks to chokers and platform trainers. All of which have been utter joy. But trust Milan to bring back the fanciest retro plus-one – square-toe heels. Very Clueless, very early days Carrie B, and very future us.

Chain reaction
Ladylike bags have had a new-season reboot, too. May we introduce the tiny but mighty chain-handled edition. The mock-croc finish and neat silhouette remains, while the playful gold handle makes it the perfect tonal partner to all that animal print you’ve been carefully acquiring recently.

You charmer
Remember when belts were just belts? Back before they didn’t have tiny bags attached to them? Us neither. And now, the waisted wonders have upped their game yet again – this time with all the charms. The perfect fancy flourish to wear with legging <span class=”woR”>shorts</span><span class=”woD”>Shorts are a garment worn by both men and women over their pelvic area, circling the waist and splitting to cover the upper part of the legs, sometimes extending down to knee but not covering the entire length of the leg. They are called “shorts” because they are a shortened version of pants, which cover the entire leg. Shorts are typically worn in warm weather or in an environment where comfort and airflow are more important than the protection of the legs.</span>, LBDs or high-waisted mom <span class=”woR”>jeans</span><span class=”woD”>Jeans are trousers typically made from denim or dungaree cloth. Often the term “jeans” refers to a particular style of pants, called “blue jeans,” which were invented by Jacob Davis in 1871[1] and patented by Davis and Levi Strauss on May 20, 1873. Originally designed for cowboys and miners, jeans became popular in the 1950s among teenagers, especially members of the greaser subculture.</span>.

Haute hair
In the past, hair slides got a bad rap, mostly because we only used them to keep our hair under control while applying some sort of artistic eyeshadow situation. But now they’re back, and they’re neither childish nor for utility purposes only. This season make yours big, bold and if at all possible, bejewelled.

ASOS:HOW TO SUIT UP FOR AUTUMN

As autumn rolls on in, as does a whole season long to really get back into some fresh-as separates. The ones we’ve been particularly pleased by this week? Those of the loose-fit and garden-green suit variety. Think of it as 80s power <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span>, without the cumbersome shoulder pads.

Go for an oversized fit in soft drapey fabrics, and swap out last season’s backless loafer for the once-controversial, now much-enjoyed chunky ole dad sneaker.

The icing on the cake is a playfully printed <span class=”woR”>shirt</span><span class=”woD”>A shirt is a cloth garment for the upper body.</span> but if a green suit already feels hella brave – no judgement here – an easy graphic tee will do just fine, thank you very much.

ASOS:THREE WAYS TO WEAR THE NEW HERITAGE

Is it the weather, or is it because of all the great royal dramas on TV this year? We’re not sure, but there are definite Balmoral vibes to the AW18 drops right now. There’s silk scarves being worn on actual necks for once and – stick with us here – some really nice anoraks are cropping up, too. For some styling inspiration to help you bring that royals-gone-bad feel to your autumn wardrobe, here are three ways to give the trend a go…

As with all of these looks, the key number is two. Keep your new trend pieces to that magic number and you’ll never veer into fancy <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span> territory. This saccharine sweet jacket and silk scarf still look like a bit of you when worn with a chunky belt, your favourite plaid pants and your trusty chunky-sole dad sneaks.

One sure-fire way to never feel overdressed nor underdressed for an occasion is to truly keep ’em guessing with your outfit. This look works so well because with each layer you peel back, it feels totally brand new. <span class=”woR”>jacket</span><span class=”woD”>A jacket is a mid stomach length garment for the upper body. A jacket typically has sleeves, and fastens in the front or slightly on the side. A jacket is generally lighter, tighter-fitting, and less insulating than a coat, which is outerwear. Some jackets are fashionable, while others serve as protective clothing.</span> and hiking boots on for a walk around the grounds (read: to your local corner shop) but later on lose the anorak for a leopard-print dress and shirt combo that’s a little bit ladies who lunch, and quite a bit punk too. Weirdly wonderful.

Here’s another stellar example of how, with just a few tweaks, an on-paper prissy outfit can actually feel very cool. The cardie and loafers may sound goody two shoes, we’ll give you that, but add in a high-shine leather mini, sporty – and do make sure they are sporty – socks and a v <span class=”woR”>fashion</span><span class=”woD”>Fashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses.
