Lay into autumn looks

THOSE autumn leaves will start dropping soon and so will the latest fashion trends.

3 Style owner Emma Stupkin is one fashionable woman and she knows how to put together an outfit or two.

Her main prediction for the fashion trends this autumn - knits and layering.

Don't leave it until the last minute to pick up some funky new designs, you could find yourself without.

"It's the one thing people wait until late to buy and then they miss out," she said.

"You have to get in before it gets cold, this is how it actually works, you have to be organised."

Emma said that knits and layering were big trends in Europe at the moment. They are comfortable and can be dressed up and down.

A key trend in autumn this year is Lurex, which is a yarn blend with metallic thread.

"Also definitely layering - get a variety of colour if you have a lot of black," she said.

"You can layer with, say, a tan belt some chunky jewellery - also some scarves.

"There will also be some winter maxi skirts that you can wear with ankle boots.

"Be careful of wearing last summer prints because sometimes it just doesn't work in autumn and winter.

"Winter and autumn are similar in materials but they always release new popular colours.

"At the moment it is mustard and wine red to peach."

Emma's style icon is not just a person - it's a brand.

"Wish is my favourite; they have the most amazing designs."
