As the crisp, Autumnal mornings are upon us and summer wardrobes have been packed away to be seen again in another year, it’s time to start investing in Autumn/Winter fashion that will see you through the seasons until Spring. Personally, Autumn is my favourite season. I always enjoy shopping Autumn styles, reflective of the natural tones of the changing nature landscapes and cosy materials to make you feel snug.
On a blissful Saturday morning, when the air was crisp and the sun was peaking through the clouds, I headed down to Hamstead Heath with blogger, Sam Grey to shoot three of my key Autumn trends. All of which are available from the high street at great value prices.
The biggest tip I can give you about investing in key pieces that will last the colder seasons would be – Shop around! Ensure that the items are of good quality and made well enough to keep you warm. Of course, laying is an option but you can’t beat a well made knit, which instantly warms your body up and protects you from the elements.
Roll neck – H&M, £24.99
Harris Tweed X Primark bomber: £50
Jeans: Nudie, £120
I love the texture and tone of this chunky roll neck from H&M, it’s off-white enough to not be blinding, but against dark or blonde features is a really striking knit. The bomber, which was part of the Haris Tweed X Primark collaboration, sits nicely over the knit not taking away from the roll neck detail. The jeans…OK! I get £120 is a lot to spend on jeans! But…they fit like a glove, which is Nudies mantra and are so versatile with Autumnal fashion. I also went for a raw denim over a stretch denim as these tend to be a lot thicker, making them the perfect choice.
I’m notoriously fussy when it comes to prints, but I adore this jumper from Superdry. The subtle Fairisle pattern offers a nice AW look, which will stand out for all the right reasons. I like the way the colours of the jumper have been perfectly matched and how one the sleeves is adorned with a Superdry logo. The fit is also nice and slim fit, something I’m very aware of when shopping knits as I never want to look frumpy.
Lumberjack shirt – Primark, £19
Denim Jacket – Levis, £50
Jeans: Nudie, £120
Something comes over me in AW, where I take on this American lumberjack persona – We’ll call him Jerry. But, seriously this is one of my favourite looks. Double denim, with a lumberjack shirt thrown over it for extra style and warmth with a nice pair of boots and you’re away (to go and chop some wood).
Thanks for reading, I’ll be following this up with a Winter Style Lookbook in the coming months.
