Jill's top tips for your Autumn / Winter wardrobe

This week, In Exeter hosted a special preview of the outfits that will be hitting the catwalk on Saturday for this year’s Style In Exeter event.

Taking place in Princesshay Square from 11am until 4pm, Style In Exeter is a fashion fiesta, with six catwalk shows held throughout the day that celebrate the city’s independent boutiques, high street favourites and department stores. Professionally styles, modelled and compered, the free event will give visitors the very latest trends for men and women this autumn and winter with outfits selected from Exeter stores.

Hosted at Chococo in Gandy Street, our VIPs enjoyed delicious handmade chocolate canapés while Jill Pollitt, Style In Exeter stylist introduced a sneak peek of the collections, outlining 2017’s key colours, pieces and accessories.

Jill’s top 5 trends for autumn/winter 2017


This season’s key colour is red. Go bold and wear a statement coat in a shade that suits your individual colouring or layer up several, complementary shades in one outfit.


This summer trend continues with embroidery now featuring across coats, jackets and boots.

Velvet and glitter boots

Don’t reserve these for the evening. This season’s must have footwear is luxe and bright and made to be worn with a pair of skinny jeans by day or by night.


This season’s sportswear is made to be seen – anywhere. Team up your workout gear with a bright, brassy gold bomber jacket and head straight from the gym to the bar.

Layering for men

Keep the cold at bay with layering. Pair this season’s classic gilet with a smart jacket.
