The #1 Autumn Trend That's Backed By the Girl Who Styles Your Favourite Celebs

From some of Rihanna's and Kim Kardashian West's most iconic outfits to cementing London's best dressed It-girl scene, super stylist and creative director Avigail Collins is known in fashion circles for being the go-to when you're a celebrity looking to craft an exciting new look. She's the mastermind behind ingenious ensembles for Lorde and is the force behind some of Daisy Lowe's sassiest getups, but Avigail's wardrobing skills extend even further: See her own streetwear-inspired line, Silver Spoon Attire, for starters. Founded in 2013, alongside her husband (and fellow sought-after stylist) Damian Collins, her high-profile music clients—and a global street style following—make up a pretty impressive fan club. If anyone can spot the next big thing, it's Avigail. Which is why we're thrilled to have her on board at Who What Wear UK to bring you a monthly column about what's hot now.

There is one trend I particularly love as we head into autumn: Velvet. It's been all over the catwalk, and I literally can't look at a velvet puffa jacket without wanting it immediately. In fact, it's the perfect trend: It looks good and it feels good too.

We all know pretty velvet dresses are a great choice come party season, but I'd urge you to rethink the way you shop and style this sumptuous fabric this season. Try and opt for looks that are less "night-out" and more about the daytime streetwear vibes: Think of a '90s velvet slip dress layered over a T-shirt, or a smart velvet blazer styled down with sneaks. Keep reading for four key ways to get into the velvet trend.
