Autumn with its rains and chilly winds is already here and we strive to look nice and trendy despite all those weather conditions.
It is not easy but if we mix and experiment a lot we’ll certainly succeed.
Leather items are the trendiest things and the favourites of this season but they are those which have to compile every woman’s wardrobe as well as clothes made of denim.
Nowadays leather is produced to be light, thin and plastic, it can be dyed any colour, ornamented with any décor.

This kind of garment, originally made from caribou or seal was invented by the people of the Arctic region, who needed clothing that would protect them from severe frosts and wet while hunting. In recent years it has been modified and now it is an integral part of a modern woman’s wardrobe.
There are various types of parkas: sporty, casual or classical, that is possible to be worn to the theatre or for a walk with friends.
As a rule, parka has a hood and a zipper. It is usually made of cotton or silk. And when it is rolled it can go into a handbag. So, dear ladies, you should own a parka!
Now some tips on how to wear it.
- A dress should be shorter than the parka.
- A dress and a parka must be of a similar texture and colour. Or you can choose a bright dress for a cotton parka.
- If you want to have a focus on you figure you better wear a belt. It might be either wide with a huge buckle or very narrow wrapped around your waist a few times and tied with a usual knot. The belt must be contrasting. Wear bracelets to beautify yourself. Roll the parka’s sleeves up and put on massive bracelets on your wrists.
- When visiting a friend or a theatre wear a nice scarf or even a boa!
Raincoats or Trench coats

One trendy, but still reactionary enough for the office. One fashionable and flirty for a night on the city. One for warmer days. A bright frisky one for weekends.
It will be warm and comfort on rainy days!
You may want your garments to be seen, in this case parka is not the best choice. The alternative is a transparent raincoat.
Plastic raincoats of various sizes and colors and at a wide range of prices can be easily seen in the market during rainy season.
Plastic raincoats are much in demand as opposed to other materials for raincoats because it is very opportune to use as well as easy to bring and gives a warm feeling from within without sticking the body.

Plastic raincoats can be transparent as well as non-transparent. Transparent raincoats are supposed to be a part of fashion statement and can be seen many at times on slope worn by the catwalk models for showing monsoon line, however, non-transparent plastic raincoats are more in use.
Plastic raincoats though are not preferred by consumers and can be replaced by umbrellas that are still the best way to get protected from the harsh weather outdoor. Nonetheless, for a person driving a motorcycle, these raincoats seem the only way to keep oneself protected from the rain
Transparent plastic outfits look very futuristic – it’s a variant for eccentric women! Wear your accessories under the raincoat, not on it! Otherwise the effect will be ruined!
Embellished Bags. Fall’s embellished bags come in subdued, natural colors with tough-but-women detailing – a very interesting combination.
The Celine “Watch me Mirror” Shoulder Bag is one of the show-stealing bags of the season. With a arch but understated fascination, this handbag in soft, fawn-colored leather is the perfect bag to take from autumn to winter.
Gucci have their own version of the embellished bag. The Babouska Medium Tote is obstinate but nice, with fringed leather detailing, which is another big trend this season, and fun, punky studs. ‘Babouska’ medium tote is designed with double handles, heart-shaped Gucci crest charm, gucci script logo,studs, bottom feet and inside zip and mobile phone pockets.
Tapestry Bags. One of fashion trends we’re seeing for Autumn 2008 is “out in the country” styling.
Adjusting into this trend of natural materials and quaint country exemplars is the tapestry handbags. And as far as tapestry bags go, Gucci designed the winning tapestry bag of the season with its Hysteria Top-Handle Tapestry Handbag.
Ruffled Bags. One of the most fascinating things about the catwalks 2008 is the great combo of ultra-feminine detailing and sleek mannish styling.
Smooth ruffles are showing up everywhere on the catwalks for fall 2008, and handbags are no exclusion.
One of the most remarkable handbags this fall is the head-turning Yves Saint Laurent St. Tropez Ruffle Bag. This bag mixes clean, simple lines with eye-catching leather ruffles in soft, subtle layers.
Another sleekly ruffled fashion designer hangbag great for fall fashion is the Miu Miu Leaf Leather Bag.
This handbag is trendly and mixes country style with subtlety feminine ruffles in a way that really catches the eye.
Footwear has to be waterproof. You may choose high-heeled or platform shoes. The best option is shoes with wooden soles or high boots with lacing or Velcro fasteners.
Sometimes wearing your ordinary footwear may not be possible. But there is always an alternative – rubber boots! If you think that rubber boots can be worn only in the woods or on a farm you’re mistaken. You can wear them in a megalopolis but the weather must be RAINY!
When choosing rubber boots you should keep in mind the following rules:
- Rubber boots have to be monotone if your outfit is multicoloured. But if your garments are of restrained tint you have to add some brightness and give vent to your imagination!
- Choose knee-length socks or gaiters to emerge from your boots. If you’re lucky to buy boots with elastic band on the top of your boots it will be fantastic!
- Don’t combine rubber boots with a parka or a raincoat – you’ll look too farfetched in a city atmosphere! Rubber boots could go with a cloak, leather jacket or if it is not very cold you can wear them with a dress and an elegant umbrella!
- To make a great impression wear your rubber boots with a smile on your face. Your step should be even lighter and more feminine than when you wear usual footwear. And remember that rubber boots can be high-heeled either!
Umbrella alone can make you look trendy. The main thing to keep in mind is wearing it in a right way!
Umbrella walking stick is classic. It can change your image, make you look like a business lady.
Folding umbrella is very comfortable and fit in your bag. Wear it when you want to add a flirting element into your image.
Transparent umbrella looks unusual. But never combine it with a transparent raincoat!
And remember that umbrella is an accessory that must be expensive!
