New season style: Enchantment

New Lipsy trends

We know it's only July but the fashion world is always one step ahead, and the prospect of autumn doesn't seem quite so bad now we've seen the fabulous new season styles coming our way.
As championed on the catwalks, autumn/winter looks move towards a more muted colour palette to create soft, vintage-inspired pieces in floaty materials that can only be described as enchanting.

Fairytale frocks

Developing the fashion story from spring/summer, romantic maxi styles and 1950s full skirts remain key, with Marc Jacobs, Paul Smith and Ralph Lauren among the designers to showcase flowing sheer and chiffon pieces at London Fashion Week.

Wear our asymmetric frill maxi dress with must-have clogs and loose, messy hair for new season sophistication.

Lovely in lace

Valentino, Christopher Kane and D&G prove that lace also remains important in a/w, going gothic with statement black lace dresses.

"Black lace paneling and edging make for a more grown-up lingerie feel this season," say the Lipsy design team. "The mood is prim with a hint of gothic fairytale".

Try our lace bow playsuit and tiered lace drop hem top for a wearable take on the trend and look out for Pixie Lott's new lace designs in her upcoming collection.

A feminine feel

For day-to-night looks, fun and feminine details make this trend a girly girl's dream, with photographic florals, beautiful bows and romantic ruffles heading our way.

The sculpture cap sleeve dress is a real go-to number and the studded bow detail bustier and double panel bow dress combine cuteness and sophistication for a look that's truly irresistible.

Rather than statement jewels, this season we'll see more subtle embellishments, perfect for pretty, girly glamour. Beads are "sprinkled and much more pretty, clustered and delicate for a look that's set to continue through a/w", say our design experts.

Finishing touches

So, what do we need to perfect the enchantment look? Judging by new season previews, the corsage continues to reign supreme, and ballet pumps, a nude leather bag and bow-detail belt are all must-have items.
