Autumn/Winter ’19: your essential outfits

Autumn/Winter ’19: your essential outfits

What to wear this season: your compact guide

It’s that time of year again. We start to think about layering up and donning our favourite cosy knits. Log fires, warming soups, Autumn leaves; there’s a lot of feel-good elements to this season, and we can’t wait.

We are also very excited to try a few new looks for Autumn/Winter ’19. We’ve done all the hard work for you. We’ve put together 4 chic and easy looks that will help you put your best fashion foot forward over the next few months, as well as a handy list of key takeaways from the season’s catwalks.

Lace + Leather

Black lace top (Topshop – current), Faux leather tan skirt (H&M – current), Black Alia clutch bag (Adjustus V – current)

In terms of textiles this season, you’ll see plenty of lace, satin, leather and knits. Bouclé is also back – think Karl Lagerfeld’s signature bouclé tweed jackets for Chanel.

Finish the look with a pair of killer knee-high boots. Knitwear is most-definitely ‘in’ this season, with some catwalks showcasing the ‘double jumper’ or ‘scrumper’; a jumper, plus another jumper, worn as a scarf!

All the Purples

Purple is the colour of the season. Lilac – which was big in Spring – remains a popular colour for Autumn, but it’s not just lilac – take your pick from any of the purple hues for an Autumn/Winter winner. Use as an accent colour against black, white or navy.

If you like to inject a pop of colour into your winter wardrobe, you could opt for an accent of ‘Stick of Butter Yellow’ or ‘Wax Yellow’, which offers a fresh, new palette for the season.

Boyfriend Jeans + Billowy, Puff Sleeves

Blazers will always be a worthwhile addition to your capsule wardrobe. ‘Shop your wardrobe’ to team yours with trousers or a skirt and add a puff shoulder with billowy sleeves to make it current.
