We hate to see summer go but the change in seasons means a new flood of fashion, so it can’t be all bad, right? Autumn/winter 2012 fashion is less about revolutionary new trends and more about easing from the spring/summer fashions into more ladylike, reserved styles.

If you were wearing a moto jacket all summer, try a bomber jacket. Whether quilted, cropped, leather, or in a vegan friendly material, bomber jackets have edged out motorcycle jackets as the new cool-girl topper. Wear one with skinnies and studded heels or use it to toughen up a sweet party frock. A lined, warm style will see you through the winter months without resorting to a parka.

If you were all about the textures of lace and suede, get your hands on something made of velvet. Burberry and Unique are just two of the designers resurrecting this fabric for autumn/winter 2012. Keep it grown-up with heels, not flats, and delicate jewelry nothing chunky or costumey. And make sure your hair and makeup are sleek and modern this isn’t the time for a retro flashback!

If you hate to abandon the bright hues of summer just because the days are growing cooler, find yourself something violet. Actually, all shades of purple from lavender to lilac to a deep royal hue are popular this fall, but if you really want to take the cake, opt for a deep, rich violet. It looks wonderful on a range of skin tones and is sure to brighten even the dreariest grey fall day.

And finally, if the graphic prints and tribal patterns of summer held your fancy, now is the time to invest in checks: everything from bold tartans to houndstooth seen on actress Emma Stone on the August cover of British Vogue. Not quite ready for a houndstooth jumper? Dip a toe into the trend by picking up a bag or scarf and pairing it with your autumn/winter neutrals.

If you are looking for jewellry to go along with your jacket, Hatton Garden is the place to buy precious jewellery, made by skilled craftsmen and built on a long, strong tradition. Whether you’re looking for engagement rings, wedding rings, eternity rings or something for another very special occasion you can find the extensive range at one of the hatton garden jewellers
