With the rain lashing at the windows and the heating being turned up full, we can’t deny that we’re fully in the swing of autumn now. Mulled wine, crispy leaves and winter woollies await us, and with them come the opportunity to indulge in a little bit of shopping. The change in seasons can be a bit overwhelming – every year there’s another list of trends to contend with – but with a few carefully chosen pieces you can be best-dressed without breaking the bank. Here are our five key pieces for your Autumn/Winter wardrobe.
A simple woollen hat given an update is to be this season’s favourite urban style accessory. You can pick up a variety of beanie hats on the high street for cheap and cheerful prices so you have one to match every outfit. Go bold with slogan or studded beanies, or keep it casual with muted colours. You won’t want to leave the house without your beanie this winter!
Over-sized Structured Coat
The best winter fashion is both practical and stylish, so it’s no wonder that we’re head-over-heels for the over-sized, structured coats that have been flooding the high street. Every store worth their salt has their own offering, and every fashionista in the know has been snapping them up for weeks. You still have a chance to get in on this trend – keep your eye out for masculine-inspired tailoring in pastel colours for the ultimate outerwear.
The shape of the season is a ladylike silhouette – and what better way to achieve this glamorous look than with a pencil skirt? High-waisted, leather, printed – there really is something for everyone when it comes to high street offerings. Team with a sheer blouse for work, a textured jumper for a casual look, or a studded crop top for a night on the tiles. It’s a versatile piece that will see you through the season and beyond – not one to miss out on this Autumn/Winter.
The tartan trend has taken the fashion world by storm. Whether it’s punk-rock-style skirts with leather and zips or lady-of-the-manor-style blazers, tartan is the trend that you’ll want to get on board with this season. It’s so easy to incorporate into your current wardrobe or look – just throw on a tartan scarf for an instant style update or go daring in a pair of tartan trousers. The high street will be stocked with plenty of choices so go wild with checks and enjoy the trend whilst it lasts.
Toughen up your look with this trend. A pair of black biker boots will go with everything you own – jeans, skirts and dresses – to give you a rock chick vibe that’s totally on trend. Not only will this stylish footwear keep you ahead of the fashion pack, but they’ll also keep your feet dry in the infernal British weather. You can’t say fairer than that!
