The new season is right around the corner and even though you may feel bummed that it’s the last week of Summer, there is so much inspiration to take from Autumn, that you’ll soon feel the Winter dread dissolve in a sea of style. With new trends and colour palettes to get you all heated up, here are five great looks to inspire you to dress your best.
The Colour Pop: We have this silly habit of choosing darker hues for colder months when it comes to styling ourselves. It’s outdated and you don’t have to dress in brown just because the leaves are. Try a bright jacket paired with a statement dress and your favourite sneakers. We love these metallic platform kicks below.
Monochrome: We can’t stop you from styling your favourite black and white pieces together, and why would we? It’ always sophisticated and professional. Try a wide legged pair of slacks and a collared shirt with a great cropped jersey. Throw on your best sunnies and a gorgeous pair of sandals.
Texture Play: The great thing about the change of season is that you can indulge in texture play. Combine your wools and leathers with open sandals and midi skirts. Layer yourself methodically and if it gets too hot, you can just take off what you need to, and still look good! Accessorize with a great clutch and oversized sunglasses.
Denim Darling: Denim is not going anywhere. Your best fitting skinnies paired with a long-sleeved shirt looks amazing with a great pair of thigh high boots – and it’s comfy. We love a great denim dress coupled with thigh-highs, as pictured below. All you need is an oversized cardigan to finish off the look.
Metallic Matter: The shimmer and shine of a metallic statement piece is a must this Autumn. Keep it casual by incorporating your staple denim or leather jacket and a basic T with your favourite flats. Keep your accessories to a minimum if you want to show off the shiny fabric. We adore this pleated maxi dress below and check out our How To Style: Micropleats post for more inspiration on the trend.
