Autumn/Winter essentials

Autumn is here in all it's beautiful glory. The leaves are on the ground, the nights and mornings are getting darker (I'm finding it harder to get out of bed), pumpkins are in the shops and and I'm Clicking "interested" to every autumnal event I see on Facebook.. yes I love me some autumn! So, with that said, I think it's time to share my autumn/winter essentials.

It's pretty much the same items every year as I think it nice to have a refresh of new coat, boots, hats and knitwear. I love that look for AW.


Smart coat

A smart, tailored coat is a wardrobe essential. They give any outfit instant chicness. Whether worn with boots or trainers, a smart coat can work in all ways.

Fur coat

I love a bit of fur for feeling glam. Wear with jeans and boots for day wear and wear over an LBD or skinnys and cami for evening.

I also love how its worn with trainers in the pic below for a casual, edgy look.

Puffer coat

Puffer coats are perfect for us Mom's. Excellent for school run and if, like me, you spend your weekends watching football matches/training in a field. Plus, they are warm and comfy for those "cba" days ;)

I'm all about the oversized look especially when it comes to knitwear. Big, baggy sweaters and jumpers are just the best for AW. Great worn with jeans for casual and with leather or pleated skirt and ankle boots for more of a dressed up look.

Hats are a fave of mine. I wear them a lot. So much so that a Grandma from the school used to call me "Hat lady" (which I fully embraced btw). I am thrilled the beret is coming back, I used wear one all the time in my late teens until I switched it to a beanie. You can't go wrong with either for the colder days and if you feel like adding an accessory.

Ankle Boots

Ankle boots will always be needed. I usually go for a classic clean, black leather but I may change it up a bit this year and go for some studded Givenchy style ones. Failing that, you can't go wrong with classic black.

So, there we have my AW essentials. Lets look forward to some cold shall we?!

Hope that's given you some Autumn/Winter inspo.

Thanks for reading! x
