Fashion's love affair with florals continues with bold botanical motifs in full bloom. Autumn's offerings have a moodier more mysterious edge to them, giving great feminine appeal.

Juliette Hogan Smoke dress $1199
Wear your hair down in a softly curled romantic style. Team with fine jewellery for a luxe feel.

Lou Lou off-the-shoulder dress $839
Valentina boots $839
3 Piece Tassel crystal earring $280
All from Camilla and Marc
The moody print of this dress deserves a bold red lip. Olive complexions suit a red that is orange-based while paler skin tones should opt for a blue-based red lipstick.

Apple top $359
Black Life pants $395
Croc boots $495
All from Andrea Moore
Tuck this top into a fitted leather pencil skirt and team with sky-high heels.

For girls who wear glasses, whip your hair up in a bun to channel a sexy "librarian" femme fatale.

Helen Cherry Tiffany dress $679
The festive ruffles of this dress create a distraction making this style a great choice for pear-shaped figures.

Carlson Adrienne jumpsuit in green/ivory $399
Contrast the green print with an orange necklace and matching hued clutch bag to make a striking statement.

Add a belt to emphasise the waist. Accessorise with knee-high boots and oversized round sunnies for a touch of 70s glam
