The arrival of the colder weather signifies it’s time to update your wardrobe, put your summer favourites into storage and bring out those winter essentials.
While being warm is crucial, you also want your autumn winter wardrobe to be versatile and stylish. To do that, you need these seven staple pieces.
A quality pair of jeans
Finding the perfect pair of jeans is important for any season, but in winter, they’re the ultimate and most versatile piece of clothing. Warm and stylish, you can dress down with trainers and a jumper, or dress up with knee-high boots.
Whether you choose blue, black or more fashion-forward designs, a quality pair of jeans are a must for autumn and winter.
A chic coat
Your coat is the glue that holds together your winter wardrobe, so it’s important to choose wisely. Think about the types of colours and outfits you like to wear, then you can plan a statement coat that will look amazing all season long.
Leggings for layering
Anyone who likes to be comfortable knows that leggings are a lifesaver in the cold months. Black leggings are the go-to for the AW season for 2020, it’s what you pair them with that counts. Think of your leggings as not lounge or sportswear but your new smart trousers.
Soft and sumptuous jumpers
For lazy days, shopping trips and more, soft and comfortable jumpers are an absolute must for autumn and winter. Layered over leggings and jeans, worn with a midi-skirt, or over a shirt, they can be styled in a myriad of ways.
To get the most out of your jumpers this autumn and winter, choose thinner, quality knits that can be dressed up or down.
An effortless pair of boots
Functional and fashionable, boots are the perfect footwear for autumn and winter. Whether for a casual yet sophisticated day-time look, or paired with a more glamorous evening outfit, you’ll be wearing your boots all season long.
For true versatility, choose a stylish pair of ankle boots, as they can be combined with anything from jeans to dresses.
A winter-ready bag
For summer, your bag choices may include cute woven options, bright colours and beach-ready designs. But for autumn and winter, you need something more practical that looks chic while also being able to cope with the cold weather.
Stash your purse in a stylish tote, satchel or cross body bag made from a material like leather. This can be easily cleaned and will keep all your belongings dry, while also complementing any outfit.
The ultimate scarf
Easy to throw on and helping to keep you warm and cosy, a scarf is one of those key pieces for autumn and winter. To keep it loose and stylish, opt for an oversized blanket design this season.
Able to be worn in so many ways, whether as a shawl, wrap or chunky scarf, this can be thrown on for an effortlessly cool look.
