I’m slightly obsessed with Autumn; I don’t know if it’s the crisp morning walks to work, wrapping up in jumpers and throwing on sleeveless jackets, or ordering a lunch time mocha instead of a smoothie. Autumn allows me to add oversized jumpers to my weekend wardrobe and a sophisticated edge to my workwear closet. (Dressing in Summer means deciding whether to sweat it out in jeans or brave bare legs in shorts and skirts.)
Adding one or two outerwear pieces to your wardrobe can define an outfit straight away, and it’s much more simple to throw on a statement jacket than calculate an entire catwalk-worthy outfit at 8:00am. Whether it’s a lightweight mac, sleeveless jacket or winter coat, there’s something for everyone. Explore my curated collection below for some inspiration, and snap up a high street bargain before it’s too late!
LUXE LIGHTWEIGHT DUSTER
WARM SLEEVELESS JACKET
BELTED WRAP COAT
FEMININE FUR COLLAR COAT
PANELLED LEATHER TRENCH
A classic coat or statement jacket can totally pull together an outfit, and finding the perfect colder weather counterpart can minimize your time spent fussing over a look. I’ve already invested in a new leather jacket, fur gilet, sleeveless jacket and belted duster jacket, but I’ve got my eye on a belted, wool wrap coat – particularly the light beige River Island number.
If you’re going to invest in one key piece this Autumn, make it a sophisticated and feminine jacket or coat – you really can’t go wrong! Which is your favourite of my outerwear edit? Do you have your eye on a particular piece? Let me know in the comments below!
