If you know us you’ll know that we’re always ready to treat ourselves, and I’ll hold my hand up and say that I may or may not be one of the main culprits of this. Whether it’s treating myself to a spoonful of cocoa powder in my morning coffee (try it, you won’t look back I swear!), or a slice of cake in the afternoon, I’m a big believer that these little treats make all the difference to my day. This week however, I’ve been gearing up to treat myself to a little (or not so little, apologies in advance to my bank account!) wardrobe update. If you’re finding yourself becoming bored with your wardrobe in the middle of the Autumn/Winter season you’re not alone! Here are some of the pieces that you can use for a wardrobe refresh!
If you’ve been following our social media, I’m sure you’re no stranger to our exclusive heart print dress, it’s been one of our favourites for the past few weeks! The puff sleeves are always such a slimming style on the arms and are a go-to for anyone with smaller shoulders that might want to create a bit more volume in this area to add balance to the body. The dark colour and clean shape means that the dress is simple enough to dress up or dress down super easily, while the cute heart print and button down front brings just the right amount of detail to add interest to the dress! While I always love dressing up for work and would wear this one with tights and boots, it would also be amazing dressed up with your favourite heels and a dramatic red lip!
You call know that this top from Ivy Lane has been one of our go to tops for months since the brand launched over the summer, but it’s had a major Autumn makeover and this might be our favourite one yet! The deep square neck of the top is such a flattering style, as it elongates the torso as well as adding the perfect amount of skin to add a flirty feel. The puff sleeves are again a slimming style and are also elasticated for maximum comfort. The tie detail at the bust adds a really sweet, feminine touch to the top, while the slight peplum effect draws attention to the narrowest part of your waist with the elasticated detail here appearing to pull the waist in further for an hourglass look. But the best part about this one just has to be those rich Autumnal tones throughout the floral print!
The right jacket can make or break an outfit, and I’ve been loving this grey longline shacket as the perfect way to dress up your outfit! You all know how much we love our shackets for both comfort and style, but this one is the perfect way to up your game when it comes to fashion! The belted detail at the waist does a great job of pulling in the waist in a natural way. This avoids a common problem that can come with longline coats where they can often drown the figure as this simple detail adds shape to the coat by drawing attention to your waist. The split detail at the bottom of the coat also does this, as it breaks up that line of material at the bottom and adds a little bit of movement to the outfit. Let’s not forget the most important part, those four (four!) deep pockets. All of our prayers have been answered!
I’m calling it, this Autumn is the perfect time to experiment with your jeans! It’s well known fact that the style that has dominated the past few weeks is well and truly on its way out (RIP Skinny jeans, we’ll never forget you xo) with looser fitting, and let’s face it, more comfortable styles taking a front seat when it comes to our favourite outfits. While in summer we’ve also seen loads of 80’s style light wash denim or even pastel tones, the Autumn months are bringing us back to our beloved, universally flattering dark denim jeans, you can thank the angel that decided that dark wash jeans are on trend this year! These flares are the perfect way to experiment with your personal style and make a statement while still feeling comfortable and confident.
Looking for something to brighten up your Autumn wardrobe? We got you girl! A new pair of trainers is always the perfect way to refresh your day to day wardrobe. The light grey colour is a nice change from our go to white trainers, but our eyes can’t help but be drawn to that gold foil detail at the back. This is the perfect way to add a touch of glamour to your outfit!
