Change is afoot. The clocks are about to go back, a morning chill and a layer or two required. It’s time for a seasonal change!
This time of year can leave us a little stumped by what to wear. It’s not quite cold enough to climb into those boots, but it is time to pack away those high summer pieces – so what now? We decided to dip a toe into Autumn/Winter 2021 trends, reach out and see what the experts recommend.
Here’s what we found………
‘Thank the fashion gods’ – chunky oversized knits are in! Aren’t they every winter? Maybe it’s just us in the stix. From what we can tell, the chunkier the better, perfect for chilly autumnal mornings, no need for coats just yet.
Tartan and heritage check (now you’re talking our language), gorgeous rich warm colours; the only thing we like to do is turn the volume down when wearing day to day. A knit, simple denims or sportswear seem to be a good match. A difficult trend to carry off head to toe, although we’re sure there are some that can.
Trouser suits – easier than you may think to wear to a casual coffee meet, school run or formal lunch date. For the ‘casual,’ add trainers and a tee; for the ‘formal’ add trainers and a tee……an all rounder, perfect for all occasions!
Baggy denims – we cannot stress enough the relief that high waisted denims have been replaced by a slouchier cut. We know high waisted is still lurking in the background, and they make your legs look like they go on forever, but for us they feel…….’tight!’
So, cheers to slouchy denim, from two mums with chocolate biscuit cravings, and who sometimes need that little extra room.
Y2K – we’re not going to lie, this is not a trend we were young enough to wear first time round! But for those of you that want to be in the know, see some visual inspiration below and don’t forget your trucker cap!
Faux fur, shearling, the fuzzier the better. It’s a good trend to wrap yourself in as the temps drop. Big furs require a neat silhouette, and cropped shearling a baggier bottom! Leopard might feel brave, but pared down with denims and trainers it’s the perfect neutral.
Here’s to a glorious winter wardrobe – full of warm, fuzzy feelings x
