How to dress for Autumn.
Do you often feel at a loss what to wear as the seasons change? You’ve just got into the swing of wearing shorts and summer dresses, when before you know it the holidays are almost at an end. With temperatures cooling, it’s still not quite coats and knitwear weather, but nonetheless you feel the need to get ready for autumn and winter. However, just because summer is fading, it doesn't mean having to store away all your summer clothes. There are sure to be pieces in your wardrobe, which can be styled with a few new key items to see you through the seasons.
Add lace up boots and a wool blazer to a midi summer dress for a transitional look. Opting for longer lengths like a midi skirt or maxi dress can mean that you get a lot more wear out of your clothes. Style this summers satin midi skirt with a leather/mock leather shirt and trainers to create another different seasonal appropriate look. Scroll down to see four new key items to integrate into your autumn winter wardrobe.
Personal Styling The…..
Wear tucked into skirts or wider leg trousers. Or use as a shacket (shirt/jacket) to wear over summer midi dresses. Plenty of mock leather and true leather options to choose from depending on your budget or lifestyle preference.
Victoriana Lace Up Boots
Bored with a standard ankle boot, but not feeling that a cowboy or hiking boot is really you? The Victoriana lace up boot is a great feminine alternative and goes with dresses, jeans, trousers and skirts. Keep jeans straight or wide leg for a more contemporary look.
Turtle Neck Top
Looks great on its own with a midi skirt or tapered leg trousers and under floral dresses. Don’t just stick to black, go for a pattern to add interest to a black dress, or a pop of colour to add ‘zing’ to a neutral based outfit. The below & Other Stories pop of pink is a great example.
Change up light weight summer blazers to wool, check or tweed. Wear over a summer dress with mules for a transitional feel. Pair with barrel leg jeans in a darker blue, khaki or tobacco shade to update ‘jeans and blazer combo.
Seasonal Wardrobe Edit
For readers who are unsure what best suits them, or for clients I haven’t seen in a while I recommend starting the season with my wardrobe editing service before embarking on an online splurge or shopping trip. Saving you time and money in the long run. I will review your wardrobe, see what’s relevant, fits or needs altering, build outfits and compile a list of key missing items. Personal Shopping with me or shopping independently starts with a clear idea of what you need to buy, where, and how to achieve within your budget.
