What colours and pat­terns should I em­brace this au­tumn? I want prints and colours that are on trend but will make me ap­pear slim­mer. Can you give me some guid­ance? Au­tumn is a won­der­ful time of the year for fash­ion. You get to dress up, add lay­ers and cer­tainly have fun with colour, pat­terns and prints. I’m notic­ing big, bright colours for the cooler sea­son like mil­i­tary greens, reds of all hues, deep mid­night blues and the fab­u­lous pink. As far as pat­terns, prints and themes go, I’ve seen a lot of glam (vinyl and vel­vet), op­u­lent fabrics and de­signs (pleats and shiny fabrics/ ma­te­ri­als), pat­terns with wilder­ness prints and tar­tan fabrics of all shades. As a gen­eral rule, wear darker colours on your bot­tom half, lighter colours with em­bel­lish­ments/in­ter­est, prints and pat­terns on top and choose lines and stripes that work ver­ti­cally, not hor­i­zon­tally, as they draw the eye in, not out. Most of all have fun and own your own style! Fol­low Ljubenka on In­sta­gram: @holdtheglam­our.
