Yes, there's no denying it - Autumn is upon us.
Those floaty skirts and open toe sandals have been replaced by full length jeans and ankle boots.
The highstreet shops have filled their racks with tons of new trends, and to be honest, it can be a bit confusing knowing which of all these trends to go for.
Below are my five 2013 Autumn essentials, that I believe every fashionista could do with adding to their wardrobe.
This is the key colour of this season. A bit of an odd one compared to the usual orange and reds that usually come out in the Autumn, But believe be - all major designers have included this lovely dusky pink hue in their collections this year.
A little black dress is not just for this season, but for any season, and every woman should have one in their possession. This particular number is by French Connection. I just love the collar and the flaired skirt.
Leather jackets will just never go out of style. The cut will change from year to year, but you just can go wrong with a neutral cut leather jacket for Autumn. The typical style for this year though is the biker inspired cut.
Just like with the leather jacket, the boots of this year are focused on a biker chic style. Leather and buckles all the way!
Animal prints, and especially leopard print is back big time, and has been for a while now. Don't go all the way out, but learn to accessorise with this particular pattern. Go for the usual leopard print colours, or opt for bright colours such as red or cobalt blue.
