Perhaps thanks to the current global obsession with all things vampire-ish, the cape is the coolest coat to be wearing this season. But think plain – the shape of the coat speaks for itself and a pattern will kill the look. And don’t let yourself throw a cape over baggy trousers – harems or otherwise. Skinnies or minis, please, to avoid looking like a bag lady. Or a bin lady. Or even a bin bag lady.

Here at MOtrend we’re feeling all autumnal. You can forget about wearing waterproof mascara to prevent the pool-side-panda look and finally relax about de-hairing, well, everywhere…because Summer is so last season! Bring on the thick furry jackets, the leather gloves and – aaah – the (many pairs of) Winter boots.
We’re going to do an A/W10 Trend mini-series, starting with the oh-so-fashiony coat of this season, the cape. We’ll be covering all your fashion bases in the next few posts so stay tuned…
So far we’ve covered:
Whether it’s suede or sheepskin, buckled or laced, chunky boots are going to be big next season. Let’s go kick some ass, girls, because these boots were made for wearing:

Sorry for talking about the weather – it’s not because i’m bored, or unimaginative; it’s just creeping me out…
So: The Weather. We are now in November and still, STILL, it’s freakishly warm. Today it was 17 decrees. That is waaay too hot, dudes. Where is the Autumn Bite? Where is the Arctic Wind? I’m getting dressed in all my new wintry clothes in the vain hope that today, maybe today, winter (or even autumn!) will arrive.
Now I have this book called ‘the land of little rain’ that my grandma used to read to me when I was really little (aww…) and to cut a not-very-long story short, the guys want some rain, do some funky dancing, and voila – rain.
My plan is not to do a rain dance but to do a ‘cold weather’ dance. Luckily enough for you you cant see me prancing about my bedroom so you’ll just have to take my word for it, but please, before you go to bed tonight, do a little jig on the spot, just whisper ‘cold’ and we shall see what happens….
email in to firstname.lastname@example.org with your tales of cold-dances!
byeee for now…
have you looked outside recently?!
It is properly Autumn!
The leaves are all doing that cool colour change buisness and the wind has a sharp tinge to it…I spent 15 mins de-tangling my hair after this morning’s windy walk! So – new rule guys! From now on:
windswept = bad hair day cool
if Giseles not complaining – neither are we!
