Dressing for Autumn
Can you believe it’s September already? I for one, love Autumn. It’s always been one of my favourite seasons of the year. I’m one of those people who prefer being too cold than too hot. There’s nothing better than wrapping up in cosy layers, thick jumpers and fluffy socks in boots, keeping all toasty and warm. So when September came rolling around the other day, I took the first opportunity to start making the summer to autumn transition in my wardrobe.
Needless to say, autumn is all about layers. Wrap up warm with chunky knits and jackets, which are easy enough for you to take off once indoors. There’s nothing better than a big scarf to snuggle up in to. Take some of your summer wardrobe and pair it with thick cardigans, jackets, and warm tights to make them appropriate for autumn and winter. Of course, I’m the first to invest in the latest season’s knitwear and jumpers as soon as they launch in stores; but think of how you can utilise what you already have, for an all year round usage.
What I’m Wearing
Living in Scotland the weather is terribly unpredictable at the best of times. But with the nights drawing into close sooner, and the air definitely starting to get colder, I’ve started to wear more weather appropriate attire. I love wearing boots; they’re the comfiest thing I own. So I try to get away with wearing them at every opportunity. With this, autumn is definitely my jam. Invest in a proper pair of boots that will really see you through, they’ll be worth the cost. The ones I’m wearing here are from Ted & Muffy, which I was gifted a few years back. I’ve worn them into the ground and they’re still going, and most definitely worth their value. Paired with my suede 70s inspired button up skirt from Primark, crisp white blouse from Miss Selfridge, and my bag is from Fiorelli.
What’s your favourite style to wear for autumn and winter? Are you a fan of the colder weather on its way?
