First Steps Into Autumn
Discover our Pre-Autumn Drops
Are you ready for your first steps into autumn? As the new season collections begin to arrive, here are some of our favourite pieces that will update your wardrobe.
The new season is all about key transitional pieces. The first taste of autumn sees a revival of seventies styling. Expect to see russet and ochre colour palettes, sophisticated silhouettes and plays on different textures.
The Trench & Faux Suede Coats
Trench coats always make a comeback and this autumn is no exception. The answer to your transitional wardrobe, the trench coat is a reliable piece for adding a chic layer over outfits whilst being practical. A faux suede coat is also a must-have item this season. It’s a great way to add a textured look that you can layer over any outfit for an instant luxurious feel.
A checked or tweed blazer makes a worthwhile investment. Wear the look to work or take on a more dressed-down approach by wearing over a t-shirt and pair with jeans. Matching tailored trousers completes the look and can be just as versatile.
Midi & Shirt Style Dresses
Dresses come in a classic shirt style that’s cut to a midi length for an effortless look that’s much-loved throughout any season. Wear with trainers then team up with tights and ankle boots.
Bias, Midi, Leather & Corduroy Skirts
Taking a midi skirt from summer into autumn is a savvy way to get more wear out of a key piece. Bias cut skirts look chic with simple t-shirts and knitwear, just add ankle boots to complete the look. Leather and corduroy are also key pieces for the new season. Also with a play on textures, these pieces will pair well with flowing blouses for a look you can take from day to night.
The animal print trend is revived again this autumn. Always classic, the print can also look contemporary thanks to mixes of pattern and colourways. Go bold with an all-over print dress or shirt, or add just a hint of animal print by wearing a patterned trainer or accessory
Wearing blouses and tops with extra detailing is a great way to liven up your look whilst mixing up textures for added interest. Puff sleeved blouses are also a key look for this season, adding subtle volume with a touch of romance.
When it’s not quite time for heavy coats, investing in lighter layers is a great way to tackle in-between seasons dressing. Add a knitted wrap or coatigan for a warm finish to your outfit without the bulkiness of full winter wear. This will also see you through as we head into next spring.
Accessorise With Scarves
Accessories are a great way to mix up the textures of your outfit – a silky scarf looks great over a tweed blazer or a crisp cotton shirt, whilst leather or patent shoes adds a sleek finish to any outfit.
Luxe Athleisure (athletic wear and leisure) is your answer to casual dressing this season. Wearing the trend is a great way to focus on your well-being thanks to its focus on comfort. The look works for everything from casual coffee catch-ups, going to the gym, travelling or at weekends. Expect to see oversized sweatshirts and tees, jogger trousers as well as trendy trainers.
