As the leaves are now falling from the trees, it’s time to rethink our wardrobes to get ready for the upcoming season. While it might feel a little sad to put your flip-flops away until next year, there is lots to look forward to when dressing for autumn. Think frosty days and cosy jumpers, windy weather and warm hats, or rainy afternoons and waterproof boots. Whatever autumn throws at us, there is a wardrobe essential to get us through; here are some tips on practical and stylish looks for autumn.
Dark Tones with Pop of Colour
One trend that seems to be de rigueur for autumn is to team dark colours with contrasting brights. Dark colours are practical from a parenting point of view, especially when out and about all day doing the food shopping, working or the picking kids up from school. Add a pop of citrus yellow, tangy orange or luscious lime, and your outfit is far from boring. Try dark jeans with a bright belt, or dress up a black jumper with some eye-popping accessories.
For casual glam for any day of the week, go for oversized shirts teamed with skinny fit jeans or cosy, fleece lined leggings. Try t-shirts that are a couple of sizes too big for a relaxed look, or for curvy ladies, there are some great ideas at Froxx in the form of brightly coloured tunics in a variety of fabrics. Add a pair of warm boots, and you are ready to take on the day in style!
Blazer Style Jackets
A fitted blazer-style jacket is great for the colder season. When it is still not cold enough to get the quilted coats out, a blazer jacket is the perfect item to take the chill off. Wear with tailored trousers for a super smart look, or throw over a white t-shirt and blue jeans for a look that never gets old.
Dig the Denim
It’s time to get those favourite jeans out again! This versatile wardrobe staple can be used to create a variety of looks. From loose fit boyfriend jeans to high waist skinny, ripped denim to laced embellishments, a good pair of jeans will last you a long time and stay looking good. Don’t fancy jeans? Go for a denim skirt, jacket, or a cute hat instead.
This autumn, choose soft wools and cotton fabrics that keep you warm but are also kind to your skin. When we start to cover up as the weather cools, often our skin can become dull. Natural fibres help your skin breathe, wicks away moisture such as sweat, and is also better for the environment.
While the weather may be getting cooler, it’s not quite time to hibernate. Autumn is a fantastic time of year for outside activities, as well as staying snug at home. Having an autumn wardrobe that is practical and stylish will help you enjoy all the best things about the season, and keep you looking good and feeling confident too.
