Step fashionably forward into next season with our guide on how to build your autumn winter capsule wardrobe…
As we wave goodbye to the last few days of summer, we can’t quite hide our excitement at the prospect of new season fashion! From cosy knits to stylish separates, the hunt is on to create the ultimate autumn/winter capsule wardrobe. A edited collection of classic and on-trend pieces that will both effortlessly suit any occasion, let us guide you through our top fashion rules for nailing A/W style…
Rule 1: Find your perfect coat
The foundation of your wardrobe, outerwear will fast become your most worn piece over the chillier months ahead. With many different styles to choose from, when hunting for the perfect coat think classic colours and timeless cuts. Opt for a shape and style that will not only be flattering and versatile, but an investment piece that will last for years to come! From cocoon to masculine, duffle to wrap coats – our selection of coats has a style to suit everyone.
Rule 2: Create a stylish combination
Piece your wardrobe together with stylish separates, striking the balance between trend-led pieces inspired by the catwalk and fail-safe basics. Mix and match versatile styles like the Lace Trim Shirt with key statement pieces such as the Leather Skirt to build a collection of go-to outfits. If like us, you gravitate towards timeless pieces, don’t be afraid to introduce stand-out styles with a bold injection of colour and prints. It’s all about creating the happy medium between comfort and style, building up an array of outfits that offer a fresh, modern, fashion-forward take.
Rule 3: Invest in your knitwear
Another key A/W wardrobe necessity is knitwear, aim to build a collection of stand-out knit picks that will keep you toasty all season. For sharp 9-5 business style mix and match tailored pieces with delicate lambswool jumpers with a hint of embellishment like the Faux Fur Collar Cardigan. For off-duty style come the weekend, wrap up warm and think casual-cool with the chunky Cable Knit Jumper.
Rule 4: Finish your look with on-trend accessories
While your capsule wardrobe may seem to play it safe, it’s time to break the style protocol and take your style to another level. Complete your look with trend-ticking accessories, whether you step into the season wearing our trusty chelsea boots to adding a pop of colour to your outfit with the Pink Wool Pashmina Scarf, transform an outfit from zero to hero in a matter of moments. We’re all over the statement necklace trend, so much so that we can’t stop paring our Statement Collar Necklace over our plain knits and blouses for a touch of embellishment!
