Autumn Fashion? I’m Already There. | AD

hush autumn winter 2018

I feel as though everyone I know is now suddenly ready for the Autumn. Everyone is content that we’ve “had a good summer”, even though it’s still August, and they’re posting pictures of turning leaves and cosy scarves and talking about where they’re spending Christmas.

I can never have enough summer, but I have to say that the sudden cooling of temperatures has had me digging about for cardigans and slightly more robust dresses. And so the Autumn collection from one of my favourite fashion brands, Hush, couldn’t have dropped at a better time.

Hush Autumn Collection*

The whole collection is so sexily rock ‘n’ roll with its glitzy stars and bright faux fur and flashes of leg that it makes me yearn for a chilly night out; red wine and a hot dinner, a walk home in the dark with the smell of bonfire in my hair.

Yes, it may be currently just a little too warm for full-on knitwear, and yes my new obsession with a certain red faux-fur jacket might be ever so slightly seasonally premature, but in this slide towards Autumn it’s important – crucial, some might say – to have a variety of layering options.

Take, for example, the Keris Cardi*, which can be nonchalantly thrown over the top of a dress, the more causally the better. It’s not too heavy for a summer evening, but woolly enough to keep you toasty through the winter when you’re layered up with vest, dress and coat.

Talking of dresses; there are enough fabulous ones in this collection to last you a decade of autumns. The Emanuelle dress*, one of the easiest and comfiest dress shapes of all time, is back in a brilliant navy and sparkling gold colourway, above. Lightweight enough to wear for an Indian Summer with tanned legs and sandals, it’ll look equally fabulous at Christmas when you’ve adorned yourself with baubles and glittery eyeshadow.

There’s also a mini stars version that I missed on my first perusal of the collection – infinitely useful, whether you’re slouching about at home or out for dinner. The Emanuelle dress is £69 here*.

But hello, who’s this? Ding dong, there’s a vixen at the door! The shape of the Yasmin dress (£99 here*) is figure-skimming and flattering, but has this amazingly sexy leg reveal thing going on and a gorgeous shirred waist that gives the top half a fitted feel. The fabric is soft and light – again, great for the end of summer if you want to wear it straight away – and the star print is just gorgeous.

For a tougher look than the standard “wear-with-trainers-sport-luxe” one, I’ve worn the maxi with Hush’s Avery Biker Boots* – the buckles and studs are a nice contrast to the soft, feminine cut of the dress.

I think that the Yasmin will be a sellout piece; there’s a touch of the Morticia Addams about it, isn’t there? The nipped in waist and the long, column-like silhouette. Morticia-gone-casual. Morticia-Lite. Do come in.

And what do we have here? Only the foxiest little faux-fur jacket in a fiery, autumnal red! Hush have also launched a longer black version of this, which is possibly more versatile, but who needs more black jackets? Not I. (I do, but that would ruin my paragraph.)

The Harri faux fur (buy it online here*) makes me feel jolly and festive and it has obvious appeal towards the end of the year when anything – anything – red is considered to be party wear.

But it’s not Christmas yet and so I’m wearing mine over a Carpe Diem t-shirt (find it here*) and leather leggings (here*) with the Ledbury trainers*.

To conclude this little shopping session, what better than a dress that you mustn’t, under any circumstances, bend over in? I have to say, for showcasing tanned legs it’s a gem, but Mr AMR got a bit of a shock when I did some impromptu twirling!

The Cressida Shirred dress (find it here*) has something of a vintage feel to it – perhaps it’s the sheerness, the delicate fabric, or maybe it’s the dainty star pattern. And it looks great, and I mean great, with a pair of cowboy-style ankle boots.

I can’t get enough of these Harlow boots* – they are everything I want from a saucy bit of footwear. They’re a classic shape made more unusual with the stars and the snakeskin print. Amazing with denim shorts, if you want to wear them immediately (I do), but just as good with tight jeans when the cold weather sets in.

And did I mention how excellent they look with dresses? Maxi, mini, ones you can’t (shouldn’t) twirl in…

So those are my top picks from the new Hush autumn collection* – what takes your fancy? Honestly, there were so many great pieces it took me ages to narrow it down to this selection! I could have done a whole series of posts. Maybe I will. Just need to let Mr AMR recover from my sudden knicker-flashing episode…

    Thanks so much for the Hush reviews, I am buying things I would not have looked at before, but they are very good. Just bought the Emmanuelle dress and it will be so versatile, I also wondered why the Cressedia dress was so short

    I snapped up that red fur jacket at first sight, it’s wonderful!

    Ah Ruth, whenever you feature Hush I lust after all the beautiful pieces but end up talking myself out of actually buying anything! I think this season might be the one when I finally take the plunge. I’d really like to just get the whole collection and that just be my wardrobe! X

    • August 23, 2018 / 1:32 pm

      Quite often that is how my wardrobe turns out! : )

    • August 23, 2018 / 1:33 pm

      But equally, I am mourning the summer and it’s not even over yet!

    Bloody love autumn me. As someone allergic to exposing their legs this summer has been tough and I’m glad to be building a little stash of autumnal goodies. Those star/ snakeskin boots are amazing, and If I didn’t have several pairs of western boots already (and a tax bill to pay) I’d be snapping them up. Unfortunately hush dresses make me look like a pregnant grandma put the prints are adorable.

    Hush is one of those magical brands that has pieces that never go out of style. You could actually wear their stuff throughout the year if you tailor it according to the season/weather.

    I want that red faux fur jacket!!! I live in Canada so I only buy Hush when I’m in London for work. My brain refuses to accept the different currency when I’m there because if you squint the pound sign almost looks like the dollar sign hahaha!

    You look stunning by the way, you always do :)

      Hahaha, excellent trick! : )

    I have enjoyed reading your blog for many years. Whenever a fashion piece arrives in my ‘inbox’ I know it will be about the ‘HUSH’ brand. Don’t get me wrong I like their clothes. It’s just that it would be good to see you blog about the other brands you wear.

    • August 22, 2018 / 9:25 am

      I wear a LOT of Hush. But saying that, the last fashion pieces before this one were: Boden, Label Mix, Whistles, All Saints and Me + EM!

    Oh Madame Ruth with your lovely clothes selections…my bank balance does NOT salute you! But…that red faux fur!!! Is it wrong to covet it HARD when I have about 10 already?

    • August 22, 2018 / 9:30 am

      You have ten red fur jackets?!!!!!!! : )

        Ha! Not red but faux fur in various guides… leopard (obvs), lilac, green, black… but suddenly there seems a MAJOR lack of red.

        • August 22, 2018 / 12:01 pm

          It’s a definite weakness in your collection.

  8. August 22, 2018 / 8:36 am

    Yes, yes, yes! I have those leather trousers and a military jacket in my basket. And I hadn’t even SEEN those boots. Not ready to commit to Autumn quite yet though, I’m clinging on to the end of summer, albeit back in jeans.

    I love your picks, but then again I love anything Hush. The star sweater in grey/pink and the star sweatshirt are great for casual looks too. I was wondering if I should grab the leather leggings and I think you have convinced me. I wish Hush was also in the States. It costs a ton for shipping and the exchange rate adds up too.

    • August 22, 2018 / 8:46 am

      I didn’t realise you were in the states!

        Yes! I live just outside of Boston. There’s nothing else comparable to Hush here.

    I have to admit that summer is my least favourite season, so as soon as the autumn collections are in store I am soooo excited! Autumn fashion is jut the best in my opinion x
