3. The ‘does all the talking’ print
No cute animals were harmed in the making of one of the biggest autumn trends for 2018.

If you’re not into full on print you can definitely get away with accessories featuring a print. A graphic print bag is the perfect addition to an all black ensemble, breaking up the colour and adding some interest.
4. The day to night bonfire party
Nothing reminds us more of autumn than the distinctive smoky smell of bonfires and fireworks. But what do you wear when a bonfire party starts early and goes on well into the night?
Layering is key to autumn fashion, as the temperature can’t quite make up its mind – whether it wants to be hot or cold. Denim dungarees are the perfect base for any fall look, easy to layer up with long sleeved tops and comfy trainers. Add a vest top underneath for extra insulation or if the night turns into a house party and things heat up.
Have a little fun with your dungarees, these are great for customising with patches and pins to let everyone know what you’re all about. Throw a parka jacket over the top and stay snug while you watch the sky once the evening rolls around.
