Welcome to autumn! We’re now officially in the land of trans-seasonal dressing where walking out the door requires having to deal with the fact it could go from warm one minute to cold the next. And for me this means strategically adding a few key items into my wardrobe such as lightweight knits and comfortable closed toe flats to ease my sadness at having to put my dresses and sandals into hibernation for a few months (that said, a pair of ah-mazing velvet heels may have caught my eye this month).
Whilst I’m a little sad to farewell summer the change in season has got me in the mood to plan my autumn/winter wardrobe and the new additions I’ll be making to it. Any excuse for a bout of shopping, right? I’m currently refreshing my mind about what I already have in my closet so I know what might need replacing and what on-trend pieces I can add. In the process I’ve managed to find a few things that I’d love to add to my autumn wardrobe. Below is a snapshot of what’s on my radar.
Have you started planning your autumn/winter looks? I’d love to hear what you’ve got on your wishlist right now.
If the frequency at which I wear my Gucci loafer slides is anything to go by a new pair would definitely get plenty of use. The shape of these is so flattering and they’re comfy too. The poppy gingham print is the perfect colourful touch to what will be an endless stream of moody, neutral shades over the next few months.
These Lolita-esque sunglasses are an adorable shape that will add a playful finishing touch to any look. Accessories are one way to really liven up a look during the cooler months.
I’m a big fan of scarves as they’re so easy to throw on when the weather is still slightly unpredictable. I love the colour of this, and the signature McQueen skull print.
I really like the chic, minimalist feel of this. The element of natural texture with the wooden handle is a great contrast to the all white, contemporary feel of the rest of the bag.
My obsession with statement earrings is still going strong. The colour and tassels really make this quite the striking piece.
Great print, great colour and a flattering wrap skirt style make this the ideal piece for dressing up a look during the week or elevating an off duty outfit.
So much to love about this bag. Only Miu Miu could get away with combining raffia, crystals and gold in the one bag and not have it look like a crazy mess but a picture of perfection.
Autumn/winter is the perfect time to embrace luxe textures such as velvet. The colour of this would really make an outfit pop.
I would layer this under a jacket and pair it with a high waisted skirt or pant. The bow is a sweet finishing touch.
This is a dream piece but I couldn’t go past the confection of frills. It’s what statement skirt dreams are made of.
