It’s Autumn already – that great transition between summer and winter that always gets us questioning what would be the perfect items to wear. Don’t let yourself too influenced by the ‘latest’ trends that try to make you run to the shops and buy all the ‘new-in’ items. Evaluate really well whether you need THAT or not. Let’s say the new item consists of a ripped T-shirt. Chances are that you will only wear it once or twice. So, why invest in something that will only occupy space in your wardrobe? Today we’ll talk about the five items you need to conquer the autumn fashion.
First of all, a wardrobe is really complete if you own basics, but know how to match them with different accessories / clothes. Why should you have basics? Simply because you can also wear them on their own, but it would be really easy for you in the future to assign the basics to different styles to create great outfits. However, let’s talk about the basics now –a mix and match blog post is coming up soon.
It’s important to have your essentials in black or white so when you add other clothes, you will keep the chromatic balance – as you should never wear more than 3 colours at once.
A Black Body Top
The black body top is a must in every woman’s wardrobe. It looks amazing underneath a cool jumper or shirt and it will keep you warm during those rainy days.
A minimalist white button-down shirt
There is no need to tell you about the wonders a white shirt can do an outfit. You can knot it in front or tuck it in. I wouldn’t wear it untucked (at least in front) or unknotted, just because I believe it can make the body look big and bulky, unless I wear it on top.
A pair of black faux leather pants
Ah, how much I love these! Faux leather pants can spice up an outfit and make you feel like you’ve just walked out from a rock music video.
Black Heel Boots
A pair of heel boots can make any outfit look super stylish. I feel they can look so cool with pants or with a short-knitted dress.
A black hat
This is a basic (from my point of view) but also a statement item to wear in autumn and winter. Take my word for it and go get a good quality hat to wear this season.
I am wearing:
Zara Black Lace Body Top
Hugo Boss White Shirt
H&M Black Faux-Leather Pants
Miss Guided Boots
Note: If leather pants are not for you, you can add a black pair of skinny jeans for your essentials – the effect will be quite similar. Also, if you prefer dresses to pants, a little black dress can for sure be included in your list. A great alternative for basics instead of a pair of heels can be a pair of army boots (I AM A HUGE FAN); just please do not consider trainers as essentials or basics – they look good only when you work out.
What items do you have in your essentials? Scarves? T-shirts? Please let me know in the comment sections, so I can find out other opinions and add some more on my list. I really value your comments!
Until next time,
