Now that the leaves are turning golden it also means that the wind is getting chillier, it’s raining more and before you know it you’ll have to break out the de-icer to get rid of the ice on your windscreen. No-one likes to be cold, so wrap and get cosy with this autumn’s essential items for your wardrobe.
Wrap up with a Cosy Coat
Be prepared, as a boy scout would say, and wrap up against the chilly weather with one of this autumn’s essential coats buys. There are plenty to choose from with everything from retro duffel coats to peacoats and luxurious faux fur options. Here are some of my best picks:
Duffels are back! This purple version from South is definitely a winner for the Autumn/Winter season.
Military style is the defining look of autumn and it’s everywhere – from your footwear to your accessories. Get involved with this stunning military style coat from South.
Nothing says comfort like a chunky knit, but it doesn’t need to be an oversized, baggy, unflattering jumper. This autumn chunky knits have been given a makeover so now is the time to revisit cosy knitwear. Why not combine two trend in one with this chunky knit duffel cardigan?
These boots are made for walking…
Boots should be a key feature of your Autumn/Winter wardrobe and luckily it’s more about comfort this season with wedge heels, sheepskin lined boots and sturdy knee length options. So, ditch the stilettos and navigate those puddles with a pair of fantastic boots instead. I love these Hush Puppies knee length leather boots in a lovely chocolately autumn brown.
Hats, Scarves and Gloves
If your big winter coat and knitwear just aren’t quite enough in the chilly weather then you might be on the hunt for any combination of hats, scarves and gloves. I always find that gloves are essential when the weather turns icy and you can mix and match then to suit your outfit. If you want just one classic pair though, that will last you a good long while, then try on a pair of leather gloves for size. I love this pretty purple pair with cute button and pleat detailing, that instantly add a bit of old school glamour to any outfit.
Scarves are a definite autumn essential but I personally prefer wraps to scarves – they’re much more versatile as they can be used as a scarf during the day and turned into a wrap in the evening when the temperature drops. This pretty beaded wrap adds a bit of bling to your outfit as well as being practical!
I don’t get on all that well with hats, I think my head is just too small but you always need one as backup for those really cold days where no matter how many layers you wear you are still freezing. A beanie hat is a good choice and has the added factor of making everyone who wears them look cute, without the use of bobbles or earmuffs! I love this chunky knit beanie which is perfect for those chilly mornings.
