Versatility & Comfort: Puffer Jackets and Loungewear

As the temperature drops, staying warm and comfortable is paramount. That’s where puffer jackets and comfortable loungewear come into play. Add an extra layer to your autumnal outfit with a Rains long coated-shell puffer jacket for length or opt for the bright Diesel W-Oluch quilted padded coat.

For those relaxing days at home or casual outings, comfortable loungewear is a must. Think soft, oversized sweaters, joggers, and lounging sets that combine comfort and style. Choose to invest in pieces such as an oversized Anine Bing sweatshirt or a matching set from Sleeper for a coordinated look.

Making a Statement with Footwear: Platform Trainers and Heeled Boots

Autumn fashion is all about making a statement, and nothing does it better than platform trainers and heeled boots. Platform trainers offer a unique blend of comfort and style with the likes of Golden Goose, Axel Arigato and Autry offering trainer styles that deserve a space in your footwear collection.

While heeled boots can be trusted to lift any look. Opt for designers such as Isabel Marant and BY FAR, who showcase feminine boot designs to elevate a look when either attending a business meeting or a dinner date. They come in various styles, from ankle boots to knee-high options.

Embrace Sophistication: Sleek Tailoring

Sleek tailoring is a trend that continues to reign in autumn fashion. Structured blazers, tailored trousers, and laid-back long coats – signature pieces that won’t lose their wear-on repeat appeal.

Opt for deep, rich colours like charcoal grey, navy, and deep burgundy to capture the essence of autumn. Pair your sleek tailoring with heeled boots or platform trainers to strike the perfect balance between contemporary and modern style.

Layer Up With Brights: Premium Knitwear

Layering is key during this time of year, which is why knitwear should be a staple transitional piece in your wardrobe like turtlenecks and cardigans. Consider alpaca wool-blend, mohair and cashmere pieces to elevate your knitwear, whilst choose to experiment with bright hues to add depth to your outfit.
