It may still be the summer holidays but there’s no getting away from the fact that summer is on its way out – the shops are filling up with new stock ready for cooler times and with Downton Abbey and the X Factor soon to return to our TV screens for another season, there’s a distinct feeling of autumn in the air.

Looking at the fashion magazines for inspiration, there are a few hot trends that will mesh nicely with a pair of Wingz – and here’s how we’d work them!


Definitely one of our favourites and the one that’s easiest to adapt to your Wingz – just take a set of black lace Wingz and add them to any top for a touch of Gothic. An elegant neck ruffled collar ramps up the Victoriana look a bit more, like this gorgeous Top Shop Victoriana blouse.

For dressing up, opt for a floor sweeping lace dress and channel your inner Victorian lady in red (as above) a la Valentino.

Back to the Eighties(again)

Rodarte (above) started the trend by coming up with eighties style sequin cocktail dresses that wouldn’t look out of place on Dynasty or Dallas. Then Jonathan Anderson added to the glitz with a collection which was inspired by Berlin club kids and the glam side of the hedonistic eighties was back again.

Bright, brash and glam calls for a striking fashion statement, so if you want to add a little something to your eighties-inspired cocktail frock, why not accessorise a brightly coloured dress like this one from New Look with purple or red chiffon flare Wingz for some real pizazz?

The Statement White Blouse

I guess they never really go out of fashion anyway, but the simple white blouse featured on the catwalk in many different guises for autumn; with Victorian frilly collars from Altuzarra to Chanel’s bow tied efforts and ruffled sleeves at Michael Kors. This Morgan blouse with navy trim encompasses the white blouse along with the Chanel bow tie and would look good with White Cotton Fold Up Wingz on cooler autumn days.
