The September Issue – Jaeger AW 11

Posted in Fashion, Writing.

And so, my obsession with autumn and all its sartorial offerings continues. In yesterday’s post I wore two pieces from the Boutique by Jaeger AW collection, and now I’ve got some catwalk images from the Jaeger AW show. I must say, the models do wear the collection slightly better than me…

Colour blocking

Summer’s colour blocking trend continues with autumnal shades – I love the clash of orange against red.

Socks and sandals

Socks and sandals were all over the AW catwalks – I’m making a note of this fluro orange and candy pink combination.

Belted knits

I love any excuse to belt up, and the waist cincher works wonderfully over this cleverly layered look. The arm candy has me searching for autumnal handbags, too.

Loose tailoring

These loosely tailored trousers look great paired with a slouchy knit for a relaxed yet polished style.

Prim and proper

I’ll be channelling librarian chic this season – everything, from the luscious buttoned coat to the ribbed tights and colour pop gloves, is on my wishlist. I’m already stalking this range of women’s coats to find my perfect partner.

Mixed prints

Patterns are more subtle for autumn, and mixing two prints with similar colour palettes creates a sleek, sophisticated look.

Mustard yellow

A key colour for the season – these glorious trousers remind me of hazy sunsets and fallen leaves.

After spending so long drooling over these images, I’m dreaming of roaring log fires, frost underfoot and that brass-buttoned coat. What about you?

If you like the look of the Jaeger AW collection and want to see more, why not enter this competition from John Lewis? You could win two tickets to the Jaeger SS12 show at London Fashion Week this month! You know I’m no summer girl but I can’t wait to see what they create next…

Full disclosure – I was sent two pieces from the Jaeger collection as payment for writing this post.

The belted third look is just to dye for a little bit!

I think coming from North Yorkshire most of us love the autumn lol xx


oh i really do love mustard..i’d sort of like a pair of mustard trousers, but i’m not really all that comfortable in trousers :/
i thought i’d found some perfect ones in new look a while back, but they were 7/8 length, which just looekd a bit daft!


I know I made this exact comment on your last post but WHY OH WHY did I quit my job with them???? HALF PRICE!! I must be mad…

wow, i really do love the colours here – so strong and bold. Love the bottle green with the red and orange. I can’t say I’m so sure about the sandals over the socks/tights…. I mean wouldn’t the common person look like a grandma? I’m not sure I could pull that one off, plus I’d probably get wet feet when it drizzles lol! Wonderful post though, very inspiring and DEFINITELY got me lusting over some arm candy for autumn xx


I love how Jaeger have been using colours in the recent Boutique collections. A little of SSs hot pink and navy have trickled into AW, but my particular favourites are the mustards, caramels and oranges. They are hideously impractical, but I think I need some yellow shoes for autumn! Thanks for the heads up about the John Lewis competition, I would love to see that runway show. Fingers crossed! x


Are Jaegar trying to hit a younger market at the moment? I was surprised to see one of the magazines – I think Glamour, or maybe Grazia – doing a 20% off with them lately. I always think on them as being for older women and far too expensive for me. Maybe I’ll need to investigate.

Ooo Jen, you’ve got me all excited about the Jaeger show now 🙂 I’ve got tickets for LFW and cannot wait. All their clothes have such classic style. Great quality and timless.
