ASOS: HOW TO WEAR SNAKE PRINT

You already know about leopard. We’ve talked about tiger. So it wouldn’t be fair to let snake slip through the net, now, would it? We’ll admit, it’s a bit extra, but with a few styling tweaks, it’s sure to add a seriously sleek edge to your AW18 look – think crop tops, button-up shirts and versatile dresses. Feast your eyes on these ‘fits…

First up, the cool colour palette. This button-up <span class=”woR”>shirt</span><span class=”woD”>A shirt is a cloth garment for the upper body.</span> is already pretty bold, so you can afford to be a little less punchy with your hues. These dreamy lilac trousers offer a fresh take on AW18 and nails that 70s thing with corduroy, too. Opt for a slightly cropped length so there’s plenty of room to show off a pair of chunky heeled boots – these monochrome beauties speak for themselves.

There’s a lot to love about this look – namely, the cut-out detail at the neck and the exposed midriff giving us ultimate 90s vibes. To push the animal-safari theme one step further, go for camo at the bottom – those greens and beiges look real good together. Feeling chilly? Throw on a blue <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> number to top it all off.

If bright colours aren’t your thing, this snake-print piece is served up in black and white. Just sling over a cross-body bag (neon trims, we see you) – et voila, your work here is done. Dress it up this season by adding tights, stiletto boots and a staple leather <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> for when the cold bites. Can we take a moment to appreciate all those hair clips, too?

ASOS: THE NEW WAY TO WEAR SEQUINS

Sequins are big news this AW18, with shimmering looks aplenty that’ll work for every occasion – from after-dark events (hello, party season) to even, wait for it… daytime! With all these oh-so-shiny looks infiltrating the season, a sequin-induced dizzy spell may occur. So, to get your glittering outfits in order, be sure to check out our brand-new way to group your favourite Saved Items together. Available on the ASOS app, channel your inner Monica Geller by organising your outfit inspo into your own personalised Boards. Who ever said organisation can’t be fun? To get you started, here’s our roundup of the best ways to wear sequins now. Sunglasses at the ready…

Party favour
When it comes to party season, there’s nothing a sequin <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> can’t do. The epitome of festive cheer, it’s a guaranteed head-turner and conversation starter, plus it looks great under the strobe lights… need we go on? For an AW18 update, swap your usual clutch for a belt bag (the hands-free benefits are going to come in handy when you’re juggling all those cocktails and canapes).

Day-glow
If you thought a sequin dress was just for the dancefloor, think again. Blogger Caro Daur’s look makes a strong case for bringing the trend into your daytime lineup, too. Pair a high-neck, long-sleeve top with a sparkling maxi for a bold look that has some serious <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> credentials (and is perfect for when the chill sets in). Dial the look up with bold colours and high-octane add-ons for maximum impact.

Trouser power
When you’re looking for a pick-me-up in the cold months, disco ball-inspired trousers have got you covered. Reach for these babies on those not-in-the-mood-for-a-dress nights and pair them with a slinky cami and a longline blazer. Or, if you’re feeling daring at the weekend, throw them on with a denim <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 white lace-up boots for a dose of fun.

Throwback time
This street-styler’s look combines two of our favourite trends: glitter and the 90s. We’re loving the Sporty-Spice-meets-Studio-54 vibes. Who knew that a sequin crop top and a tracksuit were a match made in heaven? Add polish with slicked-back hair and minimal makeup, and on top, skinny sunnies win extra style points.

Less is more
For the minimalists out there, the thought of a fully sequinned ensemble may have you waking up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat. But with this look, Dutch blogger Linda Tol proves there’s a pared-back way to tap into the trend. Go for a silver sequinned skirt and layer it under an oversized knit for a more subdued approach. Keep the accessories to a minimum too.

MISSGUIDED:the 5 coats you need for aw18

Not sure if you’ve noticed, but it’s f*cking freezing outside, and it’s only going to keep getting colder… Soz. Don’t despair though, colder weather means it’s officially time to invest in your new season outerwear. Let’s face it, we live in Britain, so you’re going to be wearing it pretty much 24/7. We’ve rounded up the 5 coats and jackets you need to invest in to keep you feeling warm and looking hot. You’re welcome, babe.

The Teddy Jacket

You guys are going crazy for the teddy <span class=”woR”>coat</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 it’s clear to see why. This borg jacket is the absolute perfect autumn-winter coverup for any outfit. Wear with mom jeans, a crop top and trainers for laid-back, student-style cool. Or, wear over a bodycon mini for an alternative night-out style.

The Aviator

It’s definitely leather weather outside, and an aviator gives you ultimate cosiness AND <span class=”woR”>style</span><span class=”woD”>Style is a manner of doing or presenting things, especially a fashionable one.</span>. This is an essential addition to your out-out ‘drobe, because this jacket looks amazing over a little dress or skirt. Faux fur and faux leather combined is always going to be a winner. Perf.

The Puffer Jacket

If you want something that’s going to keep you warm all winter-long, then a padded <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.

Whether you opt for a subtle black, quilted jacket, or a bright fluorescent bubble jacket, there’s a style of puffer for everybody. The outside equivalent of your duvet. Winning.

The Faux Fur

Public service announcement: If you don’t have a faux fur coat, you’re not doing winter styling right. This style seriously ups the glam on any outfit, and is an essential for those nights out this season. You can even wear a faux fur jacket over a formal dress for big occasions.

The Formal Coat

Need to look more smart than casual this season? Make sure you have a formal coat, which can take you from job interview to hot date. Patterned or plain, colourful or black, there are loads of options so you can choose the perfect smart jacket for you.

ASOS:HOW ASOSERS DO TIGER STRIPES

They say a tiger can’t change its stripes, but try telling that to an ASOSer. From tops and trousers to skirts and dresses, ASOS staff are wearing tiger stripes on just about everything right now. And if you were wondering how they’re styling them out, then stick around, because we’ve been on a bit of a sartorial safari here at ASOS HQ. Check out our snaps for some inspo.

Spanish Editorial Assistant Celia’s ultra-slick outfit makes pulling off tiger stripes look like it ain’t no thing. Opting for more of a pared-back aesthetic, she wears her printed <span class=”woR”>shirt</span><span class=”woD”>A shirt is a cloth garment for the upper body.</span> with cropped black leggings, while the pointed pink heels add a soft pop of colour – simple but effective.

Question: what do you get when you cross one key AW18 trend with another? Answer: Social Media Assistant Morgan’s ah-mazing trousers. Combining 70s flares with animal print is a game-changing hybrid, and we’d be lying if we said we weren’t into it. The snakeskin belt kicks the entire look up another notch, too.

For a lesson on how to zhoosh up classic wardrobe staples, just take a look at this next outfit. PR Assistant Rose’s big-cat-inspired roll-neck makes a stark statement cosied up with her patent biker <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>, while the baby-blue jeans and boxfresh trainers are always relevant.

Hitting the sartorial sweet spot, PR Assistant Rachele plays the layer game with her printed cami <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>, with aesthetically pleasing results. And by wearing it with a grungy, long-sleeved T-shirt and crisp white kicks, she manages to channel some serious 90s vibes at the same time. We’ll never not love this look.

Your casual Friday ’fit, but make it fashion. In other words, Partnership Manager Stephanie’s hoodie and chunky dad trainers are pretty laid-back pieces when worn on their own, but by pairing them with her tiger-print skirt, she manages to elevate her entire look to next-level status. So good.

MISSGUIDED:the hadid guide to aw18 dressing

Let’s be real, the Hadid sisters have it nailed when it comes to autumn and winter <span class=”woR”>style</span><span class=”woD”>Style is a manner of doing or presenting things, especially a fashionable one.</span>. Showcasing some of the best outerwear around for the new season, we present to you this guide to Hadid AW18 dressing. Thank us later!

The Puffer Coat

Winter weather is dull enough without owning a colour blocked puffer coat. Keep it print simple with pastel colours or go bold with a bright orange. It’s actually surprisingly versatile and can be a timeless staple for this time of year. Bring added statement to the coat by teaming with an all-black ensemble as shown by Bella.

The Trench Coat

On those days where wrapping up is optional, look to a classic trench coat to hold onto that last bit of seat casual styling before the weather gets too cold. Bella has gone for an all-black ensemble for a don’t f*ck with me look. She looks likes she’s stepped straight out the Matrix and we’re loving it.

The Red Jacket

Red is massively on trend this autumn. If you haven’t got a least one padded <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> sitting in your new season closet, where have you been? It’s one of those amazing times where function actually meets fashion. Ultra-versatile and it’ll also help you deal with those days where the weather doesn’t know what to do. Gigi teams with faux leather trousers, doc martins and a slouchy shirt for the ultimate street style. Not sure on the other ways to wear a padded jacket? Check out how our babes of Missguided are styling the trend here.

Snake Print Jacket

No longer reserved for <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>, snake print has been through a revamp for autumn and winter. We’ll start to see more variations on the trend of the season. Look for playsuits and trousers as well as blazers and jackets for the upcoming party season.

Casual Cool

An oversized hoody is the go-to for most casual occasions. Hungover and in need of orange juice from the shop? Off to lectures? Popping round to your friends for Sunday chill? This relaxed outerwear will see you through thick and thin. Gigi’s black hoody will pretty much match with everything you throw at it. Style it by wearing short sleeved outerwear over a long sleeved top, not only will this keep your elbows cool in the chills of winter, but makes for extra cool tomboy styling.

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: AUTUMN OUTERWEAR GETS PLAID

Even if you’re a hot-weather hun and mostly live for sandy toes and ice creams, there’s something kinda glorious about this in-betweeny autumn weather. Firstly because you’d be hard pressed to find a more healthy and cost-effective pastime than kicking your way through heaps of red leaves in the park. Secondly because the season’s layerable treasures breathe a whole new lease of life into your silky <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> styles.

Take this dreamy combo snapped at London Fashion Week last month. A nightgown-style maxi dress feels right at home in the new season thanks to the addition of a very cosy tartan <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>. Keeping the rest of the accessories very much AW, the matching brown leather clutch, punky belt and western-style shoe situation pulls it all together nicely.

Fancy trying it out? Too right, you absolutely should. Bring your favourite slinky separates – be it a midi skirt or culottes – right into autumn with you by engaging those two clever styling tricks. First up is your outerwear – jacket, jumper or coat, just make it plaid. And second of all the <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> – keep them matching in print (tartan) or in punkiness (chunky boots) and you’re onto a winner.

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. 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.

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