September is here, the air is marginally cooler and the leaves are turning brown…Autumn has arrived and I am excited! Autumn is my favourite time of year for many reasons but number one has to be the fashion. There’s nothing better than a new season of fashion to dive into but there are always a couple of pieces that make an appearance every year and become timeless Autumnal staples.
Though camel colours and Chelsea boots should pretty much style staples all year round, they take on a new lease of life once Autumn rolls round. The cool caramel tones of camel coloured coats means they pretty much go with every item of clothing, and they’re alway light enough to get away with during the warm-to-cool transitional weather. Though Autumn is boot season for me, I fall in love with the old school chelsea boots every time. They’re sturdy enough for rain downpours but are a fabulous way of dressing down those pretty dresses you’ve been wearing all Summer. I personally want to own a pair in every single shade going!
Plaid. Tartan. Check. Whatever you want to call it, this trend comes back year on year in different guises. Whether beaten and weather worn in a Rock n Roll style or uniform striped for a preppier look, it’s is more versatile than you would think. The classic Autumnal twist is always to go for the dark berry red shades of the print.
And of course, nothing signals in the new Autumnal season than a big ol’ slouchy jumper. The bigger the better! They’re tailor made for curling up indoors with a good book in.
So these are my favourites, but what are your Autumnal style staples?
