Pair this costume jewellery with a white formal shirt and you’ll look party-ready, instantly.

While you’ll find lots of warm shades like wine red and forest green, we’re glad to see brighter hues this autumn; it’s perennially summer in Singapore after all.

H&M Autumn 2012

Wear blush pink sixties-style, like new H&M poster girl Lana Del Rey. Pair your oversized knits with large drop earrings for chic daywear. Then grab those pointed heels, a structured frock for a Mad Men-inspired look.

H&M Autumn 2012

Peplum pieces are still in. Grab a detachable peplum belt to amp up your fashion meter.

The collection’s top prints? Flowers in watercolour. Do away with summer’s oversized blooms and opt for elegant lilies and abstract florals on sleeves, leggings and blouses.

So get a bit more cosy with colours this autumn – get H&M’s high street pieces fast, before they’re out.

The H&M Autumn 2012 collection will be in stores from August 2012. Address: Orchard Building, 1 Grange Road, Tel: 6235 1459. H&M will open its second Singapore store at ION Orchard at the end of this year.
