Five Things You Need in Your Autumn Wardrobe

29th August 2017

Autumn means swapping partying on the sand for finding cosy corners at your fave pub. Ringing a taxi and getting close to your crush while you wait in the cold at the end of the night. Falling in love with a new jacket and wearing it non stop – whatever the occasion.

With this change in how you get out and party, it’s worth changing up the wardrobe too so you can nail those autumn fashion trends for 2017. Here are the five things you need for the season ahead:

 1. The goes with everything leather jacket

Leather is a strong choice for whatever you get up to – and when it comes to how to wear a leather jacket  you can throw yours over everything from a floral dress to black skinnies and a printed tee. So easy.

Leather jacket style tips for autumn

Be brave with layers but make your leather jacket the talking point of any autumn outfit. Grab your fave jeans and pair these with a simple denim shirt, worn open over a bold printed t-shirt. Drape your leather jacket over your shoulders instead of wearing it properly – perfect for those all important street style Insta snaps.

What to look for  

Strong shoulders are a must – nail that need for speed vibe with a button collar worthy of wild motorbike riding and soft leather with plenty of give. Our Malibu Racer Jacket is a spot on example.

 2. The ‘it doesn’t matter if it rains’ ankle boots

Ankle boots will see you through from long days at work to late nights dancing – plus, they go with pretty much anything already in your wardrobe. Perfect for soggy walks into work, standing round bonfires or adding into your Halloween costume if you’ve got a party to attend – ankle boots are the perfect transitional piece of footwear.

Ankle boot style tips for autumn

Avoid killing your feet in just a pair tights when pairing your boots with skirts and dresses. Pop some trainer socks over your wooly knits so you can keep going. Blisters are not ideal for those long nights spent with friends. You’ll thank us later.

What to look for

A strong pair of Chelsea boots are the best idea with a small heel and a pointed toe. Grab a leather pair for all day style and swap for suede in the evening to add a little luxe to your look. Our Millie Suede Chelsea Boots work with any look and come in a range of colours.

 3. The ‘office to bar’ power suit

It’s time to #bossbitch it this autumn season and suit up. Suits are making a comeback in a big way and you’ll need some tailored pieces in your wardrobe to nail this autumn fashion trend. You don’t need to buy a matching two piece though – a blazer paired with tailored trousers or a knee skimming pencil skirt will give you that little bit of extra confidence when you need to nail a presentation or have a meeting coming up. You got this.

Suit style tips for autumn

Don’t play it safe with just black. A blazer in a relaxed fit looks amazing with a pair of chino trousers and a button up blouse – look for trousers in alternative colours to tan though, like pink. You could also work a stripe pencil skirt with a plain sleeveless shirt and a long length trench coat for all round smart vibes, as soon as you leave the house.

What to look for

Look for the little details in tailored pieces. Bold pleats can make anything look dressed up, while easy on the eye prints add some interest. Grand buttons, sturdy zips and pieces that look high quality are the aim of the game this season.

 4. The ‘notice me’ sequin piece  

This autumn, it’s all about the disco ball vibes with metallics and sequins dominating the partywear scene. And we have absolutely no problem with that. A sequin bodycon speaks for itself, while a metallic cami paired with casual jeans and a leather jacket makes for easy bar hopping style.

Sequin style tips for autumn

If it looks strong – get it on. Don’t hold back this season, embrace those sequins and metallics every opportunity you get. Although we do get that it’s not for everyone – so just rock a jumper with metallic tones or sandals if you do want a subtler look that still taps into the trend. You do you.

What to look for

Metallic silver is going to be a dominant theme this upcoming season. If it looks like it should be in a cheap sci-fi movie, you’re going to need it.

 5. The ‘strong in scarlet’ addition

Red is bold, a little dangerous but definitely a bit sexy – perfect for sassing up any autumn look. It’s the perfect choice for autumn – not only is it a colour that taps into the seasonal ones but it’s the perfect ‘look at me’ party shade. Wearing red style tips for autumn

Tonal dressing is a popular trend for the season ahead – which means wearing head to toe in the same colour, featuring lots of different shades. It’s a pretty brave look but pull it off and you’ll be winning style points all day long. Finish off with red lippie, of course.

What to look for

Ruby shades work for the evening but don’t neglect bold colours with orange tones for everyday looks – knitted jumpers, tops and accessories work best.
