What’s in my Autumn wardrobe
As I’ve fallen head over heels in love with the season changing I thought I’d share some Autumn outfit and styling inspo with you.
I am lusting over my wardrobe and fully embracing layers, coats, boots and accessories like stackable rings. Jewellery and accessories always add the final touch to an outfit and often help you style it in a different way. I’ve even filmed a little reels over on Insta as well. But first, grab a cuppa, pop on a Netflix series and let’s change over our wardrobe. Throw out summer and dig out our Autumn wardrobe from last year. It’s so easy to get distracted by all the new lines hitting your favorite stores – I’m here to say let’s not forget what we already have. Don’t rush off to the shops, where you can choose higher quality and sustainable pieces for your wardrobe.
I don’t know about you but I always stumble across a key piece that I had forgotten about. Whether it’s a coat or jewellery hidden away in a box. For me that was my jumper dress which are huge this season. You will find so many on the high street. I am tempted to buy another but for now I am sticking with the one I have and cannot wait to style it.
Another Autumn wardrobe staple is the Blazer, I’ve had mine a little while now but I find H&M offer great quality and prices. I do have my eye on an All Saints one but I may have to see if it falls into sale before indulging.
Let’s talk bottoms – this will be my 3rd year wearing my leather trousers. They are a must. I also couldn’t get through this season without a pair of straight leg jeans. For those warmer winter days worn with a tee, blazer and a pair of loafers.
Key Pieces For Autumn 2020
What have I added to my wardrobe?
Chunky knitwear, leather trousers, a slip dress, a floral skirt and a maxi dress.
Chunky knitwear is a must! Well actually this year I’ve updated my wardrobe with two hoodies and two cosy knits that will see me through. I love the casual vibe of a hoody although styled with a trench coat feels very chic. When it comes to knitwear I find I wear them so much that they often don’t last more than two seasons. So, this year I’ve added two new cosy jumpers to my wardrobe and already I know I am going to get so much wear out of them.
I highly recommend Zara and H&M for knitwear. H&M is always my first stop, although this year I couldn’t resist this gorgeous pastel green high neck jumper from Zara (I can’t find it online). I adore pairing pastel shades with more masculine looks – adding that feminine touch and honestly it’s just nice to brighten things up a little.
What else have I indulged in this year?
A trenchcoat – which I feel is going to be such a great investment buy. Taking me all the way through to Spring! I couldn’t resist adding an updated shacket to my wardrobe, this time in a neutral shade. And dresses of course! Monochrome dresses – I love this Seersucker maxi dress from Monki and I also picked up a slip dress from New Look which I’ll style with a roll neck. Actually both dresses will look cute layered with a roll neck and big chunky knits. I’m excited!
I have also invested in a pair of high waisted leather trousers. Again, they are all over the high street. I’ve styled mine with a hoody and my shacket – a really cute dressed down style that’s all about comfort yet chic.
And lastly, I LOVE jewellery. I adore how these pieces have the ability to finish a look, adding the final touch and dressing up your fingers. Stackable rings and layered necklaces remain on trend and my favourite pieces.
And here’s how I’ve styled my Key Pieces For Autumn 2020
Let’s talk footwear
I’ve seen so many on Insta lusting over chunky boots, I nearly took the bait but actually I have the original chunky boot – Dr Martens so really it would be silly to buy for the sake of it. Trainers are a must, I love my black & white hi top vans for this time of year, most people wear cons but I just don’t find them very comfortable. Loafers are a huge yes at this time of year and instantly add class and a more sophisticated yet comfortable look.
And that’s my Key Pieces For Autumn 2020. What’s in your Autumn wardrobe? Do tell me in the comments. I’m always looking for style inspo.
