The five style essentials every woman should have this Autumn


The five style essentials every woman should have this Autumn

Every year trends come and go, but more and more i am opting for my favourites and classic staples, worrying less about being "on-trend". These items are simply just updated styling wise each season (there is always a new shape or way to wear). Just in case you need some inspiration on how to style up these essentials, check out a few of my favourite autumn outfits below... and to see these and many more head over to my Street Style: Autumn Pinterest board.

So the five style essentials i think every woman should have in her wardrobe this Autumn are:

1. Statement Knitwear

A cold weather staple that covers a wide variety of styles - whether you prefer a jumper or a cardigan, a thin lightweight or a super chunky knit, make sure you opt for something sumptuous and snuggly, perfect to add that cosy layer to your autumnal look. Statement knitwear can be plain with just a great knit to it but added embellishments and detailing such as colour blocking, lace, jewels or intricate patterns are great too. Such a versatile piece, worn with jeans, trousers, skirts or layered over a cute dress - cosy but chic. I particularly love styles that have unexpected elements - ribbon lacing up the sides, tie cuffs, zips or supersized bell sleeves.

2. A Great Hat

Fedora, beanie, bobble, beret - the list is endless but a great hat can elevate a simple outfit and make you look chic an put together. I have built up a great collection of styles, over the last few years - grey, black & burgundy fedoras along with an old grey double pompom beanie from Topshop and this years addition is a cute pink bobble hat from New Look. Find a style that works for your face shape / hairstyle, throw it on and off you go. I love to add a hat if i am wearing a really casual outfit just to jazz it up, plus they are great at covering a bad hair day!

3. Beautiful Scarves

A standard accessory for the colder months, that i am 99% sure every woman owns but scarves have become so much more of an accessory in the last few years - a great way to add colour as well as warmth as well as being an inexpensive piece you can update every year. Whether you opt for a lightweight knit, full on blanket style or a festive faux fur, choose something that will work well with your wardrobe as you will be wearing it every day. I love to wear a head to toe black outfit and add a pop of colour with a beautiful scarf. Scarves are like shoes, you can never have enough.

4. The Trusty Ankle Boot

A fashionistas essential Autumn footwear, keeping feet warm, dry yet stylish . Another piece that comes in so many shapes, styles, heel heights etc that the perfect pair exist for everyone. Personally i have a few styles that i always come back to - a great pair of comfortable block heels, usually with something statement about them, to team with tights & dresses along with a flatter, simpler pair to wear with jeans. Currently wearing a pair of black western buckle boots, they work so well with my mum wardrobe of jeans and knitwear. 

5. A Biker Jacket

A relatively new essential from me, a great third layer piece that helps to cinch in some of that chunky knitwear. Opt for classic black leather or go bold, adding a pop of autumnal colour in suede - mustard, tan, blush pink or soft grey are some of my favourites. I picked up a gorgeous blush pink one from Primark in the summer, which i have loved wearing thrown over a chunky pink & grey knit and jeans on those days when i don't need a thick winter coat.
