Preview of Autumn 23 styles arriving in the shops. Just before we came to France went to Kingston to select curtain material for our new apartment. I spent some time at JohnLewis & Partners choosing fabric samples. Whilst I was in Kingston I took the opportunity to look around the fashion departments to check out the styles and colours for the new season. Both on a personal basis to fill in some gaps in my wardrobe and to write this post. I am especially looking at jackets as since I have lost weight many of my existing ones are now too large for me. They are in very good condition so I should be able to sell them through Vinted when I return to the UK.
The shorter lady-like jackets seem to be everywhere this season. They are ideal if you are petite and if you are taller they look good paired with wide-leg trousers. That is how I am going to wear mine. I think that they got the label correct. I love this Timeless jacket by Whistles.
Waistcoats are another of this season’s trends. I have always been a fan of waistcoats. They are so versatile and ideal for early autumn as they can be worn on their own over a shirt or sweater, depending on the temperature, then later teamed with a classic jacket or under a coat as an extra layer. The one I photographed above is from Mango.

The Eileen Fisher stand had a collection of dark neutrals with a dash of bright red.
Following my tour of JohnLewis&Partners and The Bentalls Centre I popped into the Kingston branch of MarksandSpencer and was very impressed with the outfits that they had on display. I particularly liked the new range designed by Sienna Miller. Below are a few of the examples.
I love both the colour and style of this coat Green twill single-breasted tailored coat
