We don’t have fall weather here, and neither do we see autumn leaves and cooling temperatures (unless it’s raining or we turn up the air conditioner). But such is fashion that weather doesn’t really mean a thing and the seasons are all messed up anyway. But we can still get in the mood, can’t we?
It’s about embracing the moment, dressing up or down just because and adding that extra something to your wardrobe to celebrate or welcome the season.
While Autumn/Winter might make you think of rich, dark colours and textures or materials with a sumptuous feel, there are some relatively simple pieces that can work for daily wear.
WANT TO WIN A HANDBAG?
For day, suits are great for a working wardrobe, and pinsuits are the way to go. This ensemble from Paul Smith is the perfect combination of city chic. You can wear it as it is or as separates and if you’re heading to cooler climes, a streamlined classic long coat is a key piece to have in any season. You can never have too many dresses and as hemlines drop, choose an electrifiying colour like this blue number from 3.1 Phillip Lim. Or if you’d rather keep it subtle, try a Jacquemus black dress with clean lines accentuated with a gold brooch mid hem for detailing.
Structured and effortless, this DKNY satchel is perfect for work and it can move to night as well. The bag has a removable strap so you have the option to be hands free.
And if you want something smaller and more dressy, try a gunmetal number from Bao Bao Issey Miyake Sports Line for cocktails and parties.
Choosing the right sunglasses is of paramount importance as it can make you look instantly glamorous. Trust Gigi Hadid for that and pick up the Tommy X Gigi sunglasses that adds a retro twist with its 90s style.
It’s the season for boots! And a sleek pair from Emporio Armani will go with everything from jeans and pants to dresses.
The Marc Jacobs Beauty Eye-conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette will see you using the browns for a subtle neutral day look, and amping it up for night with the darker shades.
