The leaves have started to change colour, the nights are getting darker and theres definitely more of a chill in the air; Autumn is certainly on its way.
Of all the seasons, Fall has to be my favourite for fashion. I love nothing more than layering up to keep me warm and experimenting with textures and rich colour palettes.
Shopping at this time of the year is always fun but this year I’m especially looking forward to it as I’m giving my wardrobe a complete overhaul. Online shopping is definitely the way forward if you’re a busy bee like I am and the new autumn collection at Esprit is a great place to start.
Take these velvet trainers for example. Available here in the jewel tones of Bordeaux Red and Navy, they’re a sumptuous way to upgrade your wardrobe this autumn. Their shape reminds me of Converse All Stars but the fabric and colours ensure that they look far more of a splurge. Pair them with skin jeans or even a pleated shirt and an oversized jumper.
Speaking of jumpers, a knitted dress is the perfect addition to any wardrobe this autumn. I love the soft knitted dress with appliqués in sand from Esprit here because it will layer so well with other pieces. A lightweight jumper like this is perfect for wearing underneath a trench coat or mac with knee high boots and it would look great with a padded gilet too.
I love to wear faux fur during the colder months because it looks so snuggly and never goes out of fashion.
The shiny down coat with a faux fur hood from Esprit ticks all the right boxes for me. Its available in classic black and a stylish bordeaux red, both with a shiny finish that catches the light beautifully. This is a wearable coat that you’ll be able to pull out year after year. The padded style is a total classic and I love that the designers have thought to add an elasticated belt to it to pull the wearer in at the waist; flattering, practical and stylish; what more could you want?
