We’re officially in autumn and it’s time to start thinking about your new-season wardrobe. The transition is easy if you build on a wardrobe of basics – you just need a few key pieces to update your style. Our fashion team has found five key pieces you can add to your autumn/winter wardrobe straight away!
The Biker Jacket
Everyone needs a biker jacket and this season’s biker is all about colour! We say go for a berry version – it’s just as versatile as black but certainly a lot more exciting.
We consider the parka a wardrobe staple. If you don’t already own one, now’s the time to get on board! This piece is practical and stylish. Wear it with ankle boots and skinny jeans or pair it with a pretty dress.
The Cowboy Boot
The boot of the moment is definitely cowboy-style. Take a more subtle approach and go for a pair that is not all-the-way cowboy and it will serve you even when the trend passes. A pointed toe and stacked heel are the key elements to nailing it.
The Animal Print Shirt
You already know that animal print is all the rage this season. Invest in just one piece that can be worn multiple ways and you won’t need to break the bank to rock this trend. We vote for a leopard print shirt – dressed up or down, you’ll wear it with just about anything.
Athleisure is a big hit once again, with the side-stripe pants being a star buy. Go for a black pair with an accent stripe that can work with anything. A cropped version earns you extra points as you can dress it down with flats or rock it with heels!
