Clothes and Accessories That Can Take You from Summer to Autumn
Transitioning your wardrobe from the sunny days of summer to the unpredictable weather of autumn can be tough, but it can also present a great opportunity to go shopping for those perfect summer-to-autumn pieces — it just requires a review your current wardrobe to see what items can work for you in the cooler months as well. Worried about nailing your style for autumn 2017? Worry no more, as we are on hand to guide you through your sartorial choices!
For a day out, say at a gallery, why not choose a ribbed colored roll neck sweater paired with a suede line skirt and tan knee high boots, but don’t forget to accessorize with a tan tooled bag or vintage satchel for the perfect preppy look. Choose some of the season’s hottest colors like mustard and chocolate for sartorial perfection.
One of the powerhouse colors of the season is red, which is featured by all of the top designers including Jil Sander, Fendi, Oscar De La Renta, and Dolce and Gabbana. Fear not, there is a tone of red to suit everyone and you can choose to wear it as a solid color or alternatively as a pattern to break up the color more. A pair of lollipop red shoes or a coat will add a punch of color on a gray morning and can be worn now through to the end of winter.
There are still one or two festivals to be enjoyed, so why not invest in a pair of sparkly boots that can take you through to the Christmas party season. Embrace your inner space go-go girl and choose a pair of silver, gold, or even teal glittery boots. Get inspired by the likes of J. Crew, Chanel, and Saint Laurent.
This autumn, ladylike Victorian fashion is a style must so opt for work-appropriate high-necked collars with subtle ruffling. You can choose from poplins and crisp cotton in pale shades of duck egg, cream, and gray to be on the cutting-edge of the look.
Another aspect of ladylike chic is the appearance of vintage florals on the catwalk. Designers such as Ralph Lauren, Coach, and Mulberry all seemed to embrace the floral look in spades. To get the look, opt for large, oversized flowers (as opposed to ditsy floral prints) for that perfect vintage style look.
Speaking of vintage, but not as we know it, the 90s look has been making a comeback over the last few years now and the hue of the 90s — chocolate brown — has seen a resurgence in popularity, as seen in shows from Prada, Michael Kors, and Isabel Marant. For autumn 2017, brown is definitely the new black!
For a night out, why not opt for an autumn appropriate version of a little black dress and choose a rich plum shade. This flattering tone looks good on all skin tones. Choose a tailored 50s style dress in either wool or a thick cotton and pair it with seamed stockings and heels for that perfect pinup style. A fab dress will take you through from pre-dinner drinks through to post-dinner cocktails at the casino and more! When you are dressed up to the nines, you can definitely be sure that you look the part!
