Autumn has well and truly arrived, and as the cold weather settles, it’s time to think about a wardrobe update. But a new season shouldn’t mean a complete overhaul. A seasonal capsule wardrobe can be created using just a few hero pieces, worn in different ways. With this in mind, we asked Alice and Hannah – London-based style bloggers at Belle & Bunty – to show us how to style their favourite pieces from our AW19 collection. Take a look at the video below and discover some style inspiration, just in time for the new season:
The Boiler Suit
Utility styling is here to stay in AW19 thanks to the boiler suit: an essential addition to your wardrobe that works beautifully in a layered outfit. A simple but smart double-breasted coat over the top is a simple way to elevate our all-in-one denim style. A statement top beneath adds interest and a flash of colour, and when it comes to accessories, a matching bag and ankle boots is all you need.
The Maxi Dress
When you think of maxi dresses, you probably conjure up visions of long hot summer days in your mind. Alice and Hannah show us that a maxi dress is just as suited to autumn ensembles as it is to summer holidays. With long sleeves and ruffled details, the maxi dress becomes a staple to steer you through the colder months, and it only takes a classic cross-body bag and a smart coat to make these fashion favourites work year-round.
The Layered Look
Once the cold weather arrives, it’s time to layer on the style. To create a layered look that you’ll love to wear, mix it up with different textures, patterns and colours in your outfit. Then it really is as simple as 1…2…3. First, start with a print or pattern and build around that, then layer a jacket or blazer over the top (keep it tonal for extra style points), and finally, finish it all off with matching accessories.
