Today – How to beat the chill in style
Our wardrobes change along with the seasons and with autumn underway, now is the time to have fun shopping for the key fashion pieces that will keep you looking stylish and practical throughout the colder months. Here are 5 key pieces to hang in your wardrobe whether you are visiting Narnia or the great outdoors!
How to beat the chill in style
Jump autumn puddles in a jumper dress
We don’t always embrace the cold and rain but what could be more fun than kicking up autumn leaves in a range of wholesale clothing? Not just warm and cosy; jumper dresses are one of the most versatile items and are practically an outfit in themselves. On milder autumn days they can be worn without a coat to really show them off or under a gilet for extra warmth. Wear with tights, over leggings, jeggings or jeans – there seems to be no end to clothing combinations, dressed up or down! The jumper dress has never gone out of fashion but continually updated to reflect catwalk styles. Puff Sleeves are all the rage so why not wear this season’s trend, or bring out your daring side and wear one with cut-outs and dare to bare for a night out on the tiles.
From a jumper dress to jumpsuit
The catsuits of years gone by have returned as the jumpsuit and these are a top to toe fashion statement in themselves that can be found in casual fits to party styles – they’re perfect for a girl’s night out, or in! Wear long-sleeved denim on sunny autumn days or try bandeau style with a cardigan for misty mornings when the weather is colder. Paired with heels or chunky boots, the same jumpsuit can even take you from day to evening wear with just a change of footwear!
Blustery days call for blouses!
A blouse is an excellent wardrobe staple for work and play, and can replace your summer tops and t-shirts to add an extra layer of warmth whilst still drawing compliments. Ruffles have dominated the catwalk and a long-sleeved blouse complete with a pussy bow can be worn with jeans or workwear to give a glam look reminiscent of the new romantics.
Frills and sheer are two other fashion trends this year and with many blouse styles ranging from a hint of feminine glamour to all-out scene stealers; there is a blouse to suit any and every occasion.
Blaze a trail
Blazers are not just for education but a fashion trend in their own right so you don’t have to go back to school to wear one and look fabulous whether you are at study, work or play! Layer with a blouse or just a simple tee; blazers look great dressed up with skirts or down with jeans or trousers and are a wardrobe staple to help you transition into any season. So when the air is nippy, a blazer will help blaze a fashion trail in all the right places.
Double denim is not just for celebrities! A denim jacket and jeans is a combination that can be worn by anyone and let’s face it – everyone LOVES denim. With jeans coming in every style from high waisted to distressed – this is an item of fashion wear that will NEVER go out of style and will be your staple go-to for the colder months. Pair with a western jacket or a double-breasted trench coat worn over a chunky jumper for the ultimate fashion statement on several levels (or layers!)
