With all these summer showers, here at Laura Doulton Image Consultancy we have our trench coats at the constant ready! But it’s a good excuse to think about the new autumn edits and there are some lovely styles hitting the high street now!



The continuing sporty trend  has given Mint Velvet inspiration for this smart cover up…

In a soft semi-sheen fabric, we think it’s super stylish and practical. Wear over jeans and pumps or even over a little floaty dress with opaques and ankle boots.

There’s a versatile black version too but we love it in this dusty grey colour!

If you prefer a more conventional style, this lovely nod to the jewel-colour trend is from Boden.

We see you working this with some brightly coloured contrasting shoes for a clever bit of colour blocking. Or maybe downplay it with astripy breton jumper and some white trainer pumps. Or perhaps a smart pair of heels for the evening…the options are endless!
