The leaves are falling, and we’re officially in autumn. You may be lamenting the end of summer, but every cloud has a silver lining. The arrival of a new season is a perfect excuse to go shopping and draw up a new wishlist. At this time of year, you need to think about the weather, as well as the look of your outfit. It’s about combining style and comfort and finding looks that work. As temperatures fall, snuggle up in cosy knits and treat yourself to some new nightwear. Keep your toes warm with some beautiful boots, and dare to be different when you’re buying denim. If you’re looking for some eye-catching additions to your wardrobe, try these suggestions for size.
One of the best things about autumn is the abundance of knitwear on the high street. When it’s cold outside, there’s nothing better than wrapping up and putting together some gorgeous new looks. This autumn, look out for waterfall cardigans and oversized jumpers. Both styles look fantastic with slim-fit jeans. Add a pair of ankle boots for an easy smart-casual outfit. Or go for trainers for the ultimate in laid-back chic. If you’re looking for something a little bit special, go for ruffles or animal print. Ruffles are everywhere this season, and they add a feminine touch to boyish styles. Animal print is a perennial winner in the cool weather. Go for a bold leopard print jumper with black skinny jeans and biker boots or drape a cardi over a plain polo neck and loose-fit mom jeans.
Many of us like to swap nights on the tiles for the comfort of our sofas in the autumn. When there’s a chill in the air, it’s tempting to snuggle up in front of the TV with a hot drink and some toasty slippers. Loungewear and comfy pyjamas are a must for the new season. You’ll find hundreds of different styles on the high street. It’s also worth checking out online options like Vanilla nightwear.
Most of us love jeans. If you’re a denim aficionado, the autumn catwalks bring good news. 2016 is all about denim with a difference. Say goodbye to your run of the mill plain styles, and hello to patches, embroidery and cut and sew. You can experiment and try out your sewing skills, or buy ready-made versions. Be original and embrace the trend.
Boots are an essential item for chilly days. There’s no shortage of divine boots out there. The trouble comes when you’re trying to narrow down your options. Ankle boots are always a winner in the autumn because you can wear them with dresses, skirts, and trousers. Knee-high boots are great for those who want to look glamorous and stay warm. Statement styles are really popular this season. Look out for eye-popping shades, prints, and distinctive shapes. If you’re a fan of minimal dressing, investing in a pair of headline-grabbing boots is a perfect way to finish off your look.
