My Autumn Winter Wardrobe Must Haves

Thursday, October 4

The Most Amazing Embroidered Blouse
It feels like autumn is in full swing now - I've packed away all my summer dresses and rediscovered some old favourites I've not seen in months. Regardless of the 2018 autumn winter high street trends there are items I pull out of my wardrobe year after year. These winter wardrobe essentials are a mix of basic and not so basic pieces you can layer up no matter how cold it gets. 

A Good Statement Blouse

An item that will serve you well throughout the year but particularly good in the colder months. This one I bought in George at the start of the year is a lovely thicker fabric and roomy enough I could wear a thermal vest under it. It styles effortlessly with denim jeans and a cosy coat too. 

A Very Fashionable Dress
A Pinafore Dress

As I'm in the habit of wearing dresses everyday it is important to me that I can layer them up when it is cold outside. A pinafore like this one can be styled down with a poloneck or dresses up with a blouse underneath. Another style I find works really well at this time of year is a denim pinafore because they work so well with knitwear.   

Mustard Herringbone Scarf
Black Boots with a Heel

Sometime that has been in my wardrobe now for years is a pair of black boots with a heel. My current pair are from Clarks and I wear them pretty much every time I have a skirt/dress on and dark tights. They are so comfy and dress an outfit up too. 

An Oversized Maroon Cardigan from Zaful
 An Oversized Cadigan (or Jumper)

I know this one of obvious but I thought I would include it anyway. This is the perfect time of year to wrap up with some oversized knitwear - bonus points of autumnal colours as well. 

A Love Affair with Mustard Blouses
Anything Mustard or Burnt Orange Coloured

Last but not least you can't go wrong with anything in a mustard or burnt orange colour. It is such a cliche but every year I get just as obsessed. I also love a dark green/teal colour but I don't have anything in my wardrobe like that yet...

I've not added anything to my autumn wardrobe just yet - I think I'm still coming to terms with the fact it is getting cold and dark outside again. I've been flicking through a F&F magazine this afternoon and they have some gorgeous pieces coming. 

I'd love to know where you think is doing autumn fashion well this year.
