Here are our 11 (we couldn’t stick to 10) seasonal essentials for autumn. Find out why you should be making room for them in your wardrobe:
Textured Crew Neck:
Autumn is the season for lightweight knitwear. What better piece than this three-quarter sleeved top in an unusual, intricate texture? In a cotton and wool blend, this delightful crew neck top has a soft, textured feel and comes in a flattering shade of oyster. Perfect for those in between temperatures that autumn brings.
Printed Jersey Dress:
Every woman needs a dress on standby; who knows when you might be asked out for lunch or just want to look a little dressier (excuse the pun)? This figure-flattering jersey dress features a twist front detail, elastane for that little bit of give and a multi-colour spot print. Its beautiful drape and lively tones make it ideal for brightening grey days and mixing comfort with style at occasions.
With so many blouses and tops to choose from in our new collection, this was a difficult decision but we went with the jersey top as it can be dressed up or down and can be layered successfully. Featuring a contrasting black and white floral print, this attractive jersey top is crush-resistant (read: suitcase-friendly) and has three-quarter sleeves: our favourite length for autumn. Wearing this top will make your everyday outfit that little bit more interesting.
Faux Fur Gilet:
We do like a gilet (aka the body warmer or vest), especially in autumn when it can be too warm for a coat but too chilly not to wear an outer layer. Exude casual elegance in this soft, warm, transitional piece. With faux fur for a hint of luxury and featuring quilted pockets with detailing, this black and charcoal gilet can be worn easily over any outfit.
Classic Contrast-trim Coat:
A good coat is a must-have for your wardrobe. This one stands out from the crowd: suitable for both formal and casual wear and in a useful oatmeal colour, we couldn’t ask for much more. In a wool-blend with cashmere for that luxe accent, its gentle body-shaping, contrast piping, rouleau loops, and chunky buttons complete this masterpiece of autumn outerwear.
Faux Suede Skirt:
Since a certain celebrity donned that skirt, the fashion world cannot seem to get enough of suede skirts and we are no exception. This soft, fully lined, six panel skirt has side back waist elastication for comfort and is in an on-trend shade of vicuna. Modernise your wardrobe with this contemporary piece.
Trousers are ideal for cooler months and look wonderful teamed with a blouse or knitwear. We like these as they are a striking take on a classic look. Made in an Italian easycare, warm, check fabric and lined to the knee, with side back waist elastication, these trousers are your wardrobe staple for the coming months.
One simply must have a variety of skirts, so we’ve chosen this beautiful jersey skirt with a soft, watercolour-effect floral print. Featuring panel detailing, and a fabulous flare, it is also fully lined and pull-on, for optimum comfort. Style with a plain top for a look of effortless chic.
Short Venetian Bead Necklace:
Adorn yourself in this exquisite Venetian glass bead necklace. With black, cobalt, violet and sky blue beads and an adjustable clasp, this stunning piece will add colour and interest to your ensemble.
Satchel Style Handbag:
One can never possess too many handbags. Every occasion warrants a different or new type of bag and it can be hard to choose but we think this satchel style handbag is a great size and is made in an interesting textured leather, whilst the pleasing shape and buckle detail make it the perfect all-rounder bag.
Faceted Clip Earrings:
Your outfit is not complete without these simple yet elegant pair of earrings. In black, faceted cut glass stone with contrasting silver trims and rubber cushions in the clips for comfort, they will lift your appearance.
