The autumn season will see you elevating your wardrobe basics with quality fabrics and simple design; all layered to create a put-together, seemingly effortless wardrobe. These carefully curated items will be able to take you from your weekend walks to your working commute. Think cleverly styled cotton t-shirts, wide-leg trousers and oversized knits with well-chosen accessories which speak of character and give new meaning to ‘less is more’.
We’ve all heard of Quiet Luxury but this takes it one step further with a more wearable way of dressing, focussing on a wardrobe made up of solid foundation pieces. A capsule which is unique to you, which ensures you never utter the words ‘I’ve got nothing to wear’. The trend allows you to delve deeper into your own personal style, finding those pieces which suit your body type as well as your everyday activities.
This is not just a trend but a new outlook with a move away from buying occasion outfits for specific events and thinking more about how items can work hard throughout the coming months, and even into next season. Transitional and high seasons can be accommodated with the right layering and un-layering of outfits.
The luxury can be found in the minimalist with a focus on a more thoughtful shopping experience. It may champion a neutral colour palette but the beauty of this is in the curated selection which will suit you and your lifestyle. If you gravitate towards black or enjoy fresher tones, you just need harmony in your colour palette which works for your taste and your lifestyle. Find the element of luxury in different textures and shapes.
Your autumn edit should include coats, jackets, knitwear and shoes which all work for day to night, work to play and all the moments in between. When looking ahead to your new season, consciously choose items which complete outfits or fit within your current items.
