The Autumn Wardrobe Guide
Sadly the summer months have transformed into winter - and with the cooler season comes the need for a new wardrobe. Autumn brings with it unpredictable weather conditions, making choosing the right outfit for the day a tricky process.
For anyone struggling to bridge the gap between summer frocks and winter coats, here is the ultimate guide for dressing during the autumn months.
Just because the temperature is cooling down, it doesn’t mean you need to say goodbye to your love of dresses. Whether it’s for the office, a night out or casual wear for the day time, there is a great range of dresses currently available on the racks that are suitable for the cooler months.
Maxi dresses are a great option; perfect for warmer days and easy to pair with leggings and denim jackets. A pair of leggings will also make any of your smaller summer frocks wearable for a few more weeks at least.
Biker grunge is making a comeback. Leather jackets are fast taking over last season’s love of denim and are perfect to pair with floral prints and bright coloured trousers in red or pink.
The key to making the leather jacket work is all in the quality of the product. Steer clear of ‘pleather’ (plastic-leather) and consider it an investment purchase. In terms of shape, avoid the matrix look and opt for a fitted style over length.
Pastels are still in fashion, with colour blocking a huge favourite with the high street stores. These loud colours are ideal for the cooler months and help keep a wardrobe bright and fun as the layers begin to pile on.
Don’t be afraid to blend less traditional colour combos; with bright pastel yellows, oranges and pinks all dominating the shelves at the moment. This is a great option for adding some life to the office wardrobe, with a pastel pink or green top or skirt helping you to stand out in the boardroom environment.
Capri cropped trousers
If you’re reluctant to swap the denim shorts for the jeans, the cropped trouser is a great middle ground. These three quarter length items are perfect for creating a chic European style when paired with nautical stripes in the office. Alternatively, cropped trousers are great in bright block colours like cherry red, or fun and funky floral prints. These make a great day to nightwear item and are able to be worn both in the office and on a night out with the right accessories.
Thank you Very for these fantastic style ideas!
