This coming Autumn promises to be a good review of the old good classics. Be ready to fly free and plunge into Swing new era. Take a walk at Carnaby Street for some inspiration, rescue your over knee high boots (preferably those with squared wooden heels)and team them up with flirty skater skirts and minis in acid colors. Keep your colored jeans out and give them a new twist with turtle neck sweaters in neutrals as beige, black or navy blue. Two pieces ensembles are a must, just pick the pair that suits you best, from twin-sets to structured mini-dresses and minimalist matching coats.

Think Seventies and look to Sixties style icons Mary Quant, Twiggy and Julie Christie. Make the most of your summer sales and grab a good pair of silky Palazzo trousers (as these by Zara: they are a good investment as also tick the bold color box, trend that arrived last Spring to stay) and chunky samdals, to be recycled by pairing them with thick knee high school shocks. Broad wing hats, fringed bags and earthy colours as mustard, orange and sand are the basics to spoe up your September wardrobe.

If you crave for every ad campaign by Polo Ralph Lauren, you´ll be thrilled with this year´s take on the posh school outfits. This checked blazer by La Redoute is a definite must to add to your basics collection.

If want to connect with your mosr glamorous inner trend setter, look back to the Forties. Vogue UK reports how Gucci, Miuccia Prada, Jean Paul Gaultier and Donna Karan have ushered in a season of sheer Forties glamour, complete with furs, pearls, gloves and shrugs – all revolving around the pencil skirt.
