fresh start

I know you’re probably reading this issue from somewhere gloriously sunny, and here we are already discussing autumn fashion (leather! layering!) and new-season beauty trends (the smokey eye is back!), but that’s the funny old world of magazines. And while it does always seem a bit off-kilter, it’s also quite nice to do a bit of forward planning, so you can hit the ground running when you return from holidays to real life again. With that in mind, this is an issue full of fresh starts. On page 47, nine women reveal the career turning points that helped them pivot into something more meaningful. Rosie Green talks about her own fresh start, on page 44, and notes the things that have eased her through her marriage break-up. On page 64, Laura…

say it, write it, share it.

BRILLIANT WOMEN After our July issue came out, we received a lovely letter from Natalie Ahmed about the women we featured. She wrote, ‘I’m in total awe of (and possibly a tad in love with) Stacey Dooley. I so admire her grit, her confidence, her style, and I aspire to be like her in every way, including possessing her dancefloor prowess. She’s carved out a career in a challenging, competitive, dangerous profession (and that’s just Strictly Come Dancing), and her interview made me think about how we could all do with being a little more Dooley – not necessarily on the front line of danger, but in harnessing our inner strength. ‘It’s a theme I felt carried through the whole issue, with Fearne Cotton urging us to embrace our uninhibited, unapologetic, brutally…

autumn’s new trends

GOTHIC FLORALS Flower prints are still in full bloom but now they’re darker, richer and more opulent. Pussy-bow blouses, ruffle dresses and ornate jewels complete this decadent trend. ALTERNATIVE BRIGHTS Meet fashion’s new hues: canary yellow, bougainvillea pink, burnt orange and jade green. Wear head to toe or combine with denim, leather or caramel tones. PUNCHY CHECKS It’s time to break with tradition and opt for bigger, bolder, brighter checks. This is less heritage, more crazy, sexy, cool. LADYLIKE LEATHER It’s autumn's most in-demand fabric – appearing on everything from weekend trenches to pinafore dresses. But it’s had a feminine upgrade, so look out for richer shades and looser shapes. COMPILED BY: GABRIELLA MINCHELLA. PHOTOGRAPHY: LUCKY IF SHARP, IMAXTREE.COM.…

the fashion influencer

POP-UP Head to the exclusive Dior pop-up boutique in Harrods, from 3rd-31st August, and treat yourself to a silk scarf, checked bob hat or woven bangle, or splurge on a customised canvas shopper. IN THE SHADE The only sunglasses you’ll need this season are aviators. After a summer of cat eyes, the iconic shape returns, thanks to Celine’s AW19 show, where girls walked the runway in gold and silver frames. MINI GOLF Fast track your wardrobe into fall with a shrunken golf sweater. Go for a classic argyle print in lilac and lemon or traditional checks. Buy it a few sizes too small (it should be tight and cropped) and wear with a mid-length pencil skirt and a Peter Pan collar shirt. THE NEW ‘IT’ JACKET A coloured leather bomber is going to be your wardrobe game-changer…

bags of style

What does every modern woman want from her dream handbag? Something super-stylish but classic, so it will never date, perhaps? Practical and spacious, so you could use it for everyday, but special enough for evening and with enough edge to elevate an outfit as simple as jeans and a T-shirt? An impossible task, you might think, but not for actor Sarah Rafferty. Her uber-chic top-handle creation, the True Bag, the result of a special collaboration with designer label Marc Cain for its autumn/winter collection, is everything you could want in a timeless tote and then some. ‘I need my bag to carry a lot of “stuff”,’ said Rafferty when we met at the fashion house’s show in Berlin. ‘This design is inspired by today’s modern woman, who has a career and…
