How soon is too soon to start dressing for Autumn? While I’ve already been tempted to dust off my over the knee boots and pack up my endless supply of summer tops for another year, I must admit that I don’t know if I’m ready to see my wardrobe of pretty pastels and florals be replaced by dark colours! This is always a sharp transition that can make your wardrobe seem dull and almost boring, so one solution to this problem is introducing pops of colour into your Autumn wardrobe!
Colours have always been one of our favourite ways of expressing ourselves through fashion and almost becomes a part of your day to day style (just ask GTT’s very own Erin who’s been known to wear pink at every chance possible!) and while this is easy during the summer, you can often lose this when it comes to dressing for winter, where neutral colours like black, grey, and brown are more on-trend. But during London Fashion Week last February we saw pops of colours becoming more popular, with oranges and blues set to be major trends in the upcoming season. So here’s how you can incorporate these colours into your Autumn Wardrobe:
Firstly, jewellary and accessories are always a great option if you’re looking for a bit of subtle colour. This can add a really fun, playful touch to any outfit and can totally pull your look together. This pretty gold and purple bracelet does this in a really simple, natural way and is the perfect way to add a personal touch to any outfit.
Raincoats are always an essential when it comes to Autumn fashion, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring! You all loved these bright jackets last year and we just knew that we had to bring them back this year. This is another great way to add a touch of personality to your day-to-day wardrobe and can add a playful feel to the most simple outfit.
Every Winter we find ourselves reaching for our leather jeans, whether you’re looking to dress up or are going for a more casual vibe, these are a must for us every year However, this year mine might be replaced by a black leather skirt! This is another super versatile style, that you can pair with a white shirt for a monochrome look or with a bright jumper for a touch of colour that will give you a more relaxed vibe. We also love the mixing of textures here to add even more visual interest to an outfit.
Who said that you have to leave your patterns in Summer? Floral has to be one of my all time favourite prints (sorry, I’m basic, I know!) so you know I’ll be holding onto my floral dresses with all my might as we enter into Autumn/Winter! A great solution to this is a bolder pattern with darker colours that might make it a bit easier to wear in the Autumn. Another option is swapping your florals for more Autumn friendly animal prints, this is another great way to express yourself through fashion (again, just look at GTT’s Lisa who loves her leopard print!) and adds a lot of interest and personality to your look!
Can’t bear to part with your favourite summer ‘fits? We’re right there with you girl! But who said you can’t re-style your summer dresses to wear them again in the coming months? After all, we’ll do everything we can to get that cost-per-wear down! It’s super easy to do this, whether it’s by layering a light turtleneck top or long sleeve t-shirt under that dress you wore once to a picnic or pairing tights and boots with that floaty skirt that you practically lived in during the heatwave this summer!
