I am sure I am not the only one whose inbox is updated daily with emails of tempting photos of gorgeous new Autumn clothes from my favourite shops. Although I am still firmly wedded to my flip flops and summer dresses – despite the odd windy rainy August day (!) I must confess to having clicked on the ‘view new collection’ buttons and started thinking about Autumn fashion… new jackets, new boots and definitely something new in the fabric that seems as though it will be making big splash this forthcoming season… velvet. Textured fabrics – I love them!
It seems as though we shall still be treated to some gorgeous neutral and earthy tones and that we won’t have to say ‘goodbye’ to our beloved greys just yet – yippee! Accent colours of blues but also raspberry/deep pink seem to be popular. It seems too as though that ‘go to’ piece – the ever faithful cardigan – will continue to be a staple in many of our Autumn 16 wardrobes. Long gone are the days when it was crocheted, knitted preserve of the homespun! I’ve seen them out there with zips and long hem gathers, waterfall and sleeveless, cropped and asymmetric lines.
From a jewellery point of view of course the possibilities are endless…. just what we like! This season statement earrings continue to hit the headlines and we always love offering you a beautiful collection of these. However much we adore this style though, it is not every day that we all want to wear something long and dangly so Flutterby Autumn16 will still offer you a wide range of affordable stylish everyday studs. For example look at the beautiful simplicity of the rose gold studs – perfect with those natural tones I was mentioning earlier.
The cuff is back this season and we have two beautiful leather cuff bangles to show you. Not a thick chunky cuff which can limit your other jewellery options but these are made of stunning metallic leather which can be worn together or with other pieces. I have been wearing the silver coloured one next to my many other silver bracelets and received many compliments. It is a stunning piece and will be available on our website for only £35… they are hard wearing too!
Many of you loved our trio bracelet last season. Three strands of soft leather linked together with a simple twist magnetic clasp. Autumn 16 sees the broadening of this collection into three colourways. A stunning neutral mix – where the leather feels almost like suede on one strand and a grey blue colour blend. Each will be on our website soon for £30 each. But if you can’t wait and would like one now then please just contact us!
So whilst it is still very much summer in my house a little shopping to soften the blow of the start of autumn always goes down well. There will be more fashion to come.. both out there on in our favourite shops and boutiques but also from Flutterby so keep an eye out and enjoy putting together your autumn wardrobe!
