Pull out the coats, the hoodies and the boots because winter is coming. The British summer is always short lived especially for us lot in manchester. Wether you’re a summer, legs out basking in the sun kind of girl or a hibernate and cosy up gal, These Autumn Winter Wardrobe Essentials are the must have’s this season.
Currently we’re in transition from Summer to Autumn so it’s starting to get a bit chilly but its still too hot to activate full coat mode. So the best thing to do is invest in some good jumpers, hoodies or cardigans. Nothing beats a good, fluffy, cosy jumper. I will always go for an over sized jumper mainly for comfort reasons but also because I’m just obsessed with that style. Knitted jumper dresses are going to be everywhere this season. They look amazing paired with over the knee boots and look super cosy and feminine.
Denim is always in. Its time to switch out the shorts for jeans and mum jeans are so in this Autumn. style these jeans with a baggy tee or mix it up with a nice fitted body suit. Whilst we’re still in the transition period, denim jackets are the perfect thing to throw on as it gets colder outside. Layer a denim jacket on with a hoodie underneath if like me your a wimp in cold weather.
One of the more crucial Autumn/Winter wardrobe essentials to have every year is a good leather jacket. Leather jackets automatically add edge to an outfit. Recently I have seen pink leather jackets doing the rounds on fashionistas social medias and they look stunning. Leather jackets never go out of fashion so you’ll be sure to get your use out of it. Dont be afraid to shop in thrift shops for this must have, most of the leather jackets in thrift shops and vintage shops will be real leather. I got mine second hand from a recycling warehouse and its lasted me 3 years. A leather jacket can be styled with virtually any outfit, wether its jeans and a tee or fish nets and a dress, you’ll look like a rock chick no matter what.
For these colder months dont be scared to mix up fabrics and textures. Its always good to layer as it gets colder. I get cold so easily so I love layering up. Layering creates texture especially when using different fabrics. Over sized scarves should be your go to thing when the temperature drops. Scarves are also a great way to add layers and textures to outfits. This season invest in a blanket wrap scarf. Not only are these super warm and comfy, they look chic and effortless.
On the feet its time to start rocking some boots. Leather boots, heeled boots, knee high boots, just make sure you own a pair this season. A pair of ankle boots are such a versatile piece, every girl should own a pair. Knee high boots are still a strong going trend and look perfect paired with a leather look skirt or knitted dresses.
Hats are the statement accessory this Autumn Winter. Ive seen sailer style/baker boy hats making there way around on top fashion influencers Instagram accounts. Another hat that will pull together a chic outfit is a Fedora hat. Owning a fedora in materials such as wool or felt will keep your head warm whilst looking super chic.
We all need to prep our wardrobes for the colder months so I hope my post on these Autumn Winter wardrobe essentials have given you some inspiration and you’re ready to head out to the shops and brace yourself for the colder months to come. Thanks For reading. Lunar xo
