Key fashion trends and ideas from La Redoute

La Redoute have some great pieces in this season. Here are some of their key style tips with some product suggestions just for you!

Trend of the month:
Army and Navy
What is the look?
Reworking military and naval uniforms has long been a favourite trick of designers, but for autumn 09 they have gone very literal. The result is something to be reckoned with, with elegant naval frock coats, lace-up boots and bold button
REDOUTE CREATION Jacket in 45% Wool £55

All Army and Navy

Sharp Tailoring
What is the look?
There’s always a place for beautifully tailored shirts, trousers and jackets, and this season it’s centre stage. Take charge in a don’t-mess-with-me suite.
REDOUTE CREATION Wide Leg Trousers with Braces, Inside Leg 75 cm £35.00

All Sharp tailoring

Preppy Chic
What is the look?
Don’t let the schoolgirl theme fool you: whatever your age, you can make this look suitably grown-up. Style it to be sophisticated enough for the office but sexy enough for the post-work drink
Boat neck sweater £39.00

All Preppy Chic

Berry Shades
What is the look?
Autumn’s new colour family includes blush pink, warm red and dusky purple. It’s an ultra-feminine look-at-me palette, and designers didn’t shy away from top-to-toe colour.
REDOUTE CREATION 100% Hammered Polyester Dress £35

All berry Shades

The flares
STYLE TIPS: These 1970s-style flares hug your thighs and hips and kick out below the knee, giving perfect curves to those with a boyish figure. Add high wedges for a full-on glam-azon effect.

The hipsters
STYLE TIPS: Low slung and ultra-flattering, these are the ego-boost jeans. The distressed detailing is slimming and the subtle boot-cut will balance wide hips. Love them!

The straights
STYLE TIPS: A-listers can’t get enough of their straight-legged, rough-and-tough boyfriend jeans. Dress them up with killer heels or down with gladitor sandals, and don’t be scared to turn them up.

The bootcuts
STYLE TIPS: Super-comfy in a soft stretch denim, these faded numbers are the jeans you’ll want to live in. Pear shapes will love their flattering cut. Wear with flats for a laidback weekend.
