My colleague Monique has been in New York for the last few weeks and sent me a link to the New York Times with highlights from some of the shows. She tried to get some photo of women in Long Island where she was staying but it was so freezing that most women were bundled up against the elements.
Yellow continues to be a strong trend colour for Autumn 2015 at JCrew, as shown in the image above. If you want to get ahead of the game JCrew have some great yellow “looks” in their current range here. (20% off with code Shoppingtime)
Blue is another strong contender from Marc Jacobs
Looks like many of us are going to be slinging fur or fake fur over our shoulders next winter.
Love the rich print and clean lines for these coats at Tory Birch
Evening sparkle at Oscar de la Renta
Saddle bags (fringe optional) are very on trend. I already have one in black which I wear every day.

If you like to pick up on trends early and buy an item that will still look fresh come next autumn.
The above is just a preview of a make-up range specially formulated for us more mature women. I was lucky enough to meet the founder and creator last week and chat over a cup of earl grey tea. I asked her about what inspired her to create the brand, why it has become such an incredible success and some hints and tips she has to help us to look fabulous at any age. Plus much more so join me again this Friday when all will be revealed.
Now for today and Fashion Flash:-
Our Fashion Flash host this week it the renowned expert on all aspects pertaining to skin care Deb Chase of Nononsensebeauty We all know that before we put on any make-up our skin needs to be in the best condition possible.

There is a concept that the sleeveless puffa jacket can look a tad frumpy on us more mature women. Often associated with dog walkers and wellies, nothing wrong with that, however I think you can dress it up and wear it in town as well as the country. It is just a question of what you wear it with and the accessories.
The sleeveless puffa can be worn all the year round, as a layer under or over a jacket, or simply on it’s own.
Jazzed up with a colourful scarf
