The heatwave has disappeared, festival season is almost over, and autumn is officially on its way in.
Apart from terracottas and purples set to be the colour of the season, there’s another very specific trend set to be taking over our insta feeds- flannel hair.
Though it might not sound like the most appealing term, flannel hair is just the fancy way of describing hair with lots of copper, auburn and mulled wine tones to it. Think Lana Del Rey. Ginger is BACK with a bang, people!
And hairdresser to the stars, Sharon Dorram, told Allure that taking the leap can be very complimentary to the skin and overall appearance.
“I love creating this colour for people who want a change because it can be so opulent.”
“I always see a spike in this trend around August because people are so tired from being overbleached from summer, and look to add rich and deeper hues into their look.”
Some of our faves including Florence Welch and Bella Thorne already rock this colour year-round, and we might just be joining them very soon.

I love leather jackets. They’re so versatile; you can wear them seamlessly with jeans and a t-shirt or a flirty dress, they keep you warm, and they always look good. Always. This season, I’m in the market for a new jacket, and I’m kind of obsessed with this AllSaints Balfern Leather Biker Jacket ($498). The brand is known for its supersoft, comfortable leather. Plus, I can’t get enough of the zippered sleeves or faux belt detail.
I think it’s the perfect mix of tough and fashionable, and evidently, other customers agree, as it’s the top-rated leather jacket at Nordstrom. One of the many rave reviewers says, “I have had it for 2 years and it still looks amazing, will last me for years! It’s super soft and all around perfect. Worth the splurge!” And if you need one more push, a fellow editor, Stephanie Nguyen, let me know she also has this jacket and absolutely loves it. With this many glowing recommendations, I can’t think of a reason not to pick it up.
No matter the weather or occasion, a leather jacket is always appropriate. This silhouette is a classic; treat it right and you’ll have it for a long time, just as these reviews say. Your closet will thank you. Just be prepared to have everyone stop you to ask where you got your perfect leather jacket.
