Don’t you think there’s just something so satisfying about autumn/winter style? Not only does it mean that we can stop shaving our legs (just me?), but I also love how a couple of new key pieces can bring us right on trend for the next six months.
Every year I love buying my new ‘winter coat’ and, if I’m lucky, a new pair of ‘winter boots’. Since my birthday happens to be in September it’s always been the perfect time of year for me to have a bit of a splurge and treat myself to some new additions – especially this year since I’m trying to have a bit more ‘me time’ of late.
I’ve opted for classic staples this year, which I can team with most things in my wardrobe and which I know I’ll get full use out of over the months to come…
My first a/w purchase was this camel coat from Topshop which I’m loving so far. I love its simple clean lines and blazer style fastening, which makes it the perfect coat to wear with both jeans or a dress/skirt. It’s also smart enough to wear on a night out or to the office. I’ve only had it one month and I’ve already had so much use out of it. Camel coats are big again this year and there’s a great range to choose from. Either invest in an expensive one that will last you for years to come, or go with this one – at £59, you can always buy a new one again next year!
Brogue Chelsea boots
From the minute I saw these I knew that I had to have them! Apparently they were hugely popular last a/w, so Dune have introduced them to the collection again this year. They are super comfy and practical (alright mum), but also totally on-trend – I love pairing them with a shirt-dress and opaque black tights for an effortless chic look (or so I like to think!)
What do you think? Have you invested in any new staples for your a/w wardrobe yet? Do you always treat yourself to a new winter coat and winter boots?
