Autumn is finally here! I have to admit I love Autumn, summer has its perks of slip on shoes and light jackets but thick coat, chunky knits and berry tones is my idea of heaven!
I’ve recently invested in a few staple pieces for the season and I thought now would be the perfect time to showcase them.
Firstly, ankle boots! My love of ankle boots transcends most seasons, especially a simple black pair – they go with everything, they look great and if they have a heels they make you feel powerful as you’re
stamping from A to B. I recently bought this gorgeous pair from Long Tall Sally! They are classic black heeled ankle boots, which are super comfy and fit perfectly into my Autumn wardrobe (they are slowly becoming my ‘go to’ shoe especially as they are smart enough to wear into the office.) I’ve only recently become aware of the brand but I can tell already they are going to become a favourite! The new curated collection is definitely something I’ll be investing in.
Embroidery, you can’t flip a page in a magazine without seeing something which as been embroidered, whether it be shoes, a jacket or a bag! So, as many self respecting fashion lover does I decided to jump on the trend and pick up this beautiful skirt from River Island – a simple black skirt with a twist! It’s the perfect way to add a pop of colour into your Autumn wardrobe and is bang on trend.
What wardrobe would be complete without a camel coat, I picked up this long camel coat from Next a little while ago and though it is slightly big on me I still love it – perfect for wrapping up in the chilly Manchester wind and pairing with anything from a winter floral dress to a pair of jeans. I think it’s really important to invest in a good quality coat since winter lasts a little longer in old blighty (especially Manchester) and a good coat can last you a number of years if you treat it well! Trends are often recycled therefore if you pick a classic well made coat you are sure you see the return on investment.
Finally, Winter florals! What is more perfect than dark florals and berry tones?! I picked up this dress from Silkfred recently and i’m in love! Once again, it is slightly big on me due to a little weight loss (RESULT) but the print and feel of the dress is stunning and it is honestly one of my favourite pieces to throw on – I love to pair it with black ankle boots (see above!) and a faux leather jacket! Perfect day glam look for Autumn/Winter!
