As summer makes its way out, it’s time to update your wardrobe for cooler, crisper climes with our three on-trend day looks for autumn. Featuring soft-touch corduroy, plush knits and easy-going accessories, we predict that these fresh new outfit ideas will form the foundations of this season’s style line-up.
1. Pin This
The pinafore dress has made a welcome comeback for AW18, with corduroy designs in warm berry tones lending themselves to an array of low-effort yet stylish daytime looks. Steer away from schoolgirl styling by wearing yours over a block-striped knit, switching to light, airy layers on milder days – we love them with this season’s pussy-bow blouses. When it comes to the accessories, look to the key staples of autumn: a fedora hat and block-heeled ankle boots.
2. Cut the Mustard
The colour du jour of AW18, mustard is considered a less intimating colour to wear over sunshine yellow – and the good news is, it’s flattering on just about any skin tone. Nodding to the seventies’ mood off the season ahead, this corduroy mini skirt in fashion’s favourite shade is set to become your wardrobe hero. We like it styled with a navy shirt and matching accessories from head to toe.
3. Layer Up
Knitwear reinforces its status a style essential as autumn comes into focus – and we think this longline navy number provides the perfect new-season update. Crafted from a soft wool blend, this cardigan can be layered over a multitude of daytime looks, from cord pinafores to tees and straight-leg denim. Make its inky colour palette pop with a mustard bag in butter-soft suede.
