Transitioning to autumn

It’s that tricky time of the year: stores and publications are full of next season’s fashion, and yet the day’s weather is decidedly this season. Currently spending a few weeks in Scandinavia, I’m falling afoul of exactly that problem: stores are offering many a beautiful winter coat, yet with the sun beating down outside and the fact that my next few months will be spent in Australia’s summer, I have little need (but plenty of desire) for said coats.

Yet such problems needn’t mean that many of the key autumn 2011′s fashion trends can’t already be indulged in, especially the colour trends such as the tones we’ve dubbed ‘burnt colour‘.

Catching the eye with its tone, the cable knit mini dress is a high street piece from Zara. After all, generally when it comes to the transitional between seasons it’s the high street that delivers trend colours first and with more of a cloth and cut balance.  The mini dress is paired with a vintage Louis Vuitton clutch.

He was 5 when his teacher wrote on his report card “Daniel can’t sit still.” Taking it as a compliment, he’s been on the go ever since. Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is Fashionising.com’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of Fashionising.com’s co-founders.
