With Autumn creeping up, investing in outerwear that effortlessly masters the transition is key. Bohemian floral print finds a new seasonal home through muted tones, but it’s the androgynous jacket fit that commands new attention. From boyfriend fit to long length dusters, and in dark blue check to zesty block colours, outerwear will surely define your statement look this upcoming season.

In 2006, a group of Sheffield lads insisted that we would all look good on the dancefloor. Introducing a snappy and fresh indie sound, immediate comparisons to Brit Pop from days-gone-by propelled Alex Turner and co into the spotlight.

As their sound developed with psychadelic and nostalgic influences, Alex's personal style also went through a transformation. Abandoning the skinny jean in favour of a 1950s throwback, his look now toys with James Dean and British Teddy Boy cultures. Pristine as much as thrifty, Alex now embraces a suited look that encourages suits and quiffed hair into the indie scene.

Here is his style profile…

Are you aware that there are only 119 days until Christmas?


That’s the equivalent of just 4 months. Or 2869 hours if you’re feeling fancy. Either way, whether we like it or not, the festive season will be with us sooner than you think. It’s depressing to think that summer is almost over but that only means there’s more fun to come. It may seem to some like we’re getting ahead of ourselves with this Christmas lark but there are plenty of you out there already searching for all things yuletide – with Christmas jumpers being top of your lists to Santa. With this in mind, we’ve decided to give all you early birds what you’ve been looking for with a preview of some of incoming knits.

Long length cardigans and waterfall blazers encourage playful layering, while darker toned basics benefit from fringed detailing. If you’re still in a state of bohemian dreaming, check out some key looks to carry through into Autumn…

Denim is raw and undone, accented with tan worker style boots to kick the dust and patchwork blanket wraps to face the harsh desert winds. Take a look at the key pieces:

When Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn and Suki Waterhouse marched down the catwalk of Burberry in February, a new season trend instantly unfolded.  Step forward the blanket wrap – the new staple piece for Autumn.  Whilst the kimono proved a tour de force for spring and summer, this loose and open design– also known as the wrap scarf, blanket cape, the list goes on- has reinvented itself to adapt to the transition between seasons.  Having been spotted on a host of famous faces already, it isn’t hard to see why the blanket wrap is taking our wardrobes by storm.

"I wish I had invented blue jeans", said Yves Saint Laurent once upon a time, and it’s isn’t exactly hard to see why. Whilst colour pop brights may be catching eyes with their in your face impact, and prints come and go, there’s a lot to be said for this undeniably classic style that has truly stood the test of time. True blue washes of denim threaten to steal the limelight due to their effortless charm, acting as the go-to piece for thousands, both male and female, each and every day.  It's understated; bold in its subtleties, hence the interest from…well… just about everyone ever?!

So just how did this humble essential transform itself from workman's overalls to ultimate fashion icon? We count down the most iconic denim heroes and travel through some pivotal moments in its fashion history, from Marilyn to Moss. Here is our edit of the best…

For so many years Joseph Gordon Levitt remained under the radar, focusing strictly on his craft, to find himself at the heart of the indie film industry whilst also knocking at the door of the some of the biggest blockbusters in Hollywood. He’s come a long way since his days as a casually dressed extra-terrestrial on “3rd Rock from the Sun”, a gawky teen dream in a pair of ill-fitting jeans and hair that would safely disguise him at the back of Hanson, to the dapper tailored-gent he is today.

Here is his style profile:
