6 Autumn Wardrobe Heroes To Invest In ASAP!

Embellished Black Box Clutch HandbagI've said it before and I'll say it again, I love dressing for the cold weather; you can go totally overboard with layering and accessorising!  Although until then, we've got to muddle through those awkward days; you know, the ones that start off freezing cold and then roast you alive by mid-afternoon?  There are a few definite fail-safes that are worth investing in ASAP,  including new jeans (but you already knew that) and other essentials.  Once you've got those basics in place, feel free to go crazy with the embellished berets and jumping on board the faux fur bag trend - if only to make me feel better about my inevitable beret-seeking online shopping sessions, oops...

Because the denim you packed away 6 months ago just doesn't look quite the same as you remember, right?

The ultimate go-to for when the weather is all over the place.  The more ruffles, the merrier!

For when your killaaaa outfit is (inevitably) covered by a jacket and you need a quick and easy way to express yourself

C H E C K  B L A Z E R (or trousers)

An unavoidable trend this Autumn and a practical one too.  No complaints here.  


Shearling, leather, suede - take your pick!  It's all about textures this AW17 and speaking of which, I've just picked up this blush beauty to pair with denim 24/7 (wish I was exaggerating)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but surely boot-shopping is the most exciting thing about September?
