We’re reaching the peak of summer and though we’ve been surprised with a last minute heatwave, we’ll soon be vacuum-packing our summer florals in favour of autumn layers! As a nation, we love monochrome and when peppered with this season’s hottest hue red, it creates the perfect transitional palette. If you’ve not already browsed our new collections, get ready to add easy-to-wear shirt dresses, statement knits and reimagined denim to your wishlist!
We’re kicking things off with some seriously statement knitwear. If you’re looking for cosiness, comfort and style in one woollen garment, this jumper is the box ticker! Whether you’re throwing it on over blue denim or supersizing your silhouette with wide leg trousers, this one’s a surefire winner for the colder months.
Now, you might be thinking about what coat to buy this autumn and if you ask us – a mono check in a longer line with belted waist will be an effortless wardrobe addition. Sling it on over a crisp white shirt and flippy skirt for lunchtime dashes, or with skinny jeans and box fresh kicks for weekend wear.
Updating your wardrobe for a new season isn’t as complex as it may seem, sometimes new jeans do just the trick! Always wear skinnies? Be bold and embrace this season’s penchant for a straight leg. A distressed wash with rips are statement enough as they are, so keep it cool with a simple tee and biker jacket.
Next up is our favourite throw-on when time is precious but making an effort is key! The shirt dress is BACK and this layered look is an ultra-flattering take on new-season dressing. Fashionistas are repurposing theirs for winter by wearing them over skinnies (extra insulation when it’s cold? We like the sound of that!). Slouchiness will score you extra style points here, so go up a size for maximum roominess and continue to add layers to nail that insouciant look.
Last up… we’re stepping away from the sliders and kitten heels and going back in time to the 80s. Slouchy cone heel boots were ALL OVER the catwalks, so it’s only right your new season wardrobe gives a nod to this retro-fabulous trend. As well as making your legs look slimmer (thanks to the pooling fabric), these boots are a versatile investment (we’re thinking they’ll go with; bare legs, tights, jeans, dresses…). Plus is there any better feeling than looking so chic in a pair of boots you just want to wear with EVERYTHING? (We’ll await your answer below…)
