I'm Secretly Excited for September so I Can Try This One Autumn Trend

I have spent the majority of this week researching autumn/winter 2020 trends, and so I have saved hundreds of images of catwalk looks that I think will impact how we get dressed over the next six months. There is one styling trick that is

making me look forward to a drop in temperatures, even though I'm reluctant to actually admit this. Almost every major show on the schedule included blazers cinched in at the waist with a belt—either with a statement belt like the jewel-encrusted chains at Chanel or a skinny black leather belt that makes it a subtle accent to the look. 

At Prada the belts featured circular clasps and a prominent logo, and were used to play with proportions on the already oversized and boxy blazers. Nanushka's belts ticked off another of the key trends for autumn winter 2020: fringing. Beige trouser suits were punctuated with a black fringe belt with a gold circular clasp. Some designers even created blazers with inbuilt belts, such as the studded jackets at Jil Sander. Keep scrolling for some of my favourite iterations of the look, and then shop belt-and-blazer pairings. -
