Change of season means the perfect excuse for a wardrobe update, we are swapping in our beloved summer dresses for some autumnal vibes and A/W fashion. Yes it’s that time of the year again and cosy jumpers and trendy coats are top of our wish list.
To start off our new season looks, we’ve put together a few staples and trending styles to revamp your existing wardrobe and see you right through to winter with just a handful of pieces.
Yep, there’s no need for excessive shopping and splurging, these key pieces will help you transform your wardrobe and have it A/W ready.
1. The sweater vest
Geek chic is a mood this autumn and we are here for it. Sweater vests are keeping us warm and acting as a totally versatile purchase, wear over shirts with skirts or jeans the look can definitely go from day to night.
This one from ASOS is available for €38.99.
2. The trench coat
An autumn winter classic. If you don’t have one of these in your closet make an investment this year. Trench coats are always classy and can dress up any outfit no matter what’s underneath.
This classic camel one is €77.00 from ASOS, although Zara also has a good selection if you’re looking for something away from the classic style.
3. Ankle boots
A staple item worth investing in if there ever was one. Flat ankle boots are a must have all year round but especially in autumn. With jeans, leggings, a dress or a skirt a good pair of ankle boots are important. These from Stradvarius look super similar to Doc Martens for half the price a great buy for the colder months.
4. Cosy dress
Good bye summer dress hello cosy dress. These warm dresses can be cosy and stylish and can be dressed up with a belt and a coat, worn with boots, heels or chunky runners, they are such a handy item to throw on nights when you know it’s going to be cold but you want to still look great.
This ASOS midi is €52.99. Shop it here
5. Maxi dress
We are seeing boho chic coming into autumn, with flowy printed maxi dresses and blouses which we are here for, classy festival vibes, swap out the jesus sandals for some long boots with these dresses and we have the perfect look.
This dark print dress on Zara is perfect for someone who’s not all that comfortable with full on boho print just yet but wants to give it a go.
Smarten up your look with a blazer. We are loving oversized masculine type blazers which can be paired over jeans, with dresses and belted with a skirt as a look of its own.
This Mango example is available on their site for €69.99.
7. Faux leather
Faux leather is back with a bang. Skirts, shirts, dresses, coats, trousers you name it they’ll have it. Whether you’re brave enough for a full leather look or just want to add that bit of biker/matrix flare, there is something in this style for you.
This brown faux leather shirt is available from Zara for €49.95.
