We love the start of a new season – it’s the perfect excuse to buy a whole new wardrobe of seasonal essentials! Wondering what to buy this fall? We’ve done the hard work for you, read on to discover the ten essential pieces that you’ll find yourself wearing constantly over the next few months.
A little floral frock will be your go-to dress this season. It’s the perfect transitional piece, working just as well with bare legs for the end of summer as it will with pantyhose and a pair of boots once the temperatures drop. A long-sleeved, short-skirted style is the perfect look for hinting towards the trend for all things retro.
Our love affair with skinny jeans seems to be over, at least for the time being. This season’s essential trousers are loose, flowing and wide-legged. Although nodding towards the seventies for inspiration, lighter and silkier materials keep the look contemporary. We’re planning on wearing ours with a little cropped top to keep them looking fresh and modern.
Necklines have shifted upwards, with the turtleneck having a resurgence this season. Update your wardrobe with a selection of high-necked tops and knitwear that you can mix and match with skirts and jeans, such as our check print top which would work equally as well with a pair of flares or a sleek pencil skirt.
Although the button-down mini skirt has been around all summer, it isn’t showing any sign of going off trend. This versatile style is just as suitable for winter as it was for warmer weather, simply team with a snug sweater and a pair of thick woolen pantyhose to keep your legs warm.
Whether you opt for a fringed bag, a fringed hem on an evening dress, or fringed detailing on a jacket (like on our black fringed coat), ensure that you update your fall wardrobe with at least one statement fringed item. Take care to only wear one fringed item at once, or you risk dressing like a cowboy.
If prints aren’t for you, skip the floral dress and opt instead for a chic shirt dress that will see you through the day into the night. Our suede A-line dress is ideal for both work and play, with its streamlined silhouette. Stick to a shorter length to keep from appearing frumpy and channelling the retro trend.
This season’s must-have jacket (until it gets too cold!) is the minimalist duster. We particularly love the idea of opting for a lighter hue, such as nude or dove grey. We love the versatility of this jacket, as you can team your duster jacket with everything from an evening dress to a pair of boyfriend jeans.
It would be impossible to tap into the huge trend for seventies inspired styles without having at least one suede piece in your fall wardrobe. Whether you opt for a suede mini skirt, a pair of knee-high suede boots or a suede jacket, ensure that you choose a vibrant fall hue and try to steer away from black.
The feminine blouse has taken over the more structured shirt as this season’s essential top. We also love pussybow and sheer options, but our essential piece has to be a boldly printed option to brighten up a simple mini skirt or pair of flared jeans.
It’s getting cold out there, so ensure that you have a selection of cure fitted sweaters to pair with your collection of skirts and trousers. We love this retro-inspired printed design, but also advise to stock up on simple block-colored options. A girl can never have too many sweaters!
