I have spoken about the trends for Autumn-Winter 2017/2018 already and I thought it will be a good idea to share my top picks for this season and things I love and enjoy wearing in the colder months.
They are not trend lead, more lifestyle and weather oriented pieces that I think everybody needs in their closet. The styles and colours shown here are my own preferences and I understand that yours may be different…
- Good leather jacket
I am huge on biker style jackets, the fabric and cut does not really matter. They have to be nicely finish and fit you style and personality.
I like to splurge on the quality jacket as it is an investment that will keep on giving. But remember to look after you biker especially if it is in brushed leather or suede ! Clean it professionally and use suede protector to prevent the damage and slow down wear and tear.
- Classic coat
I like a good coat and would risk a statement that I try to add a new one every colder season. If you can afford to spend a small fortune MaxMara or Joseph is as good as the coat can get. However, there are a lot of more affordable versions available on high street with Zara and Topshop being on the top of my personal list.
The brand and price do not guarantee the quality. What matters most is the fabric and the attention to details, the buttons and whether the coat is cut properly.
- Knitwear to die for
In colder months, I love the layers and the comfort and luxury of quality knitwear. Wool and cashmere would be my preference as they are natural fabric that allow your skin to breathe and are in general more environmental friendly.
My first choice for knitwear would be & Other Stories. Their prices are reasonable and the quality of the fabric used is second to none. For more of a splurge head to Joseph. Pricy but their pieces will blow you away !
- Layering pieces
Blouses, shirts and anything else you may wear under a blazer or jumper. Again the quality over quantity is the key for me.
I have few blouses and shirts that I keep recycling and wear over and over again under something else. My absolute favourite shirt is from Zara and if I am not mistaken I bought it over 8 years ago. I love it so much that the minute it is out of wash I will wear it again !
- Favourite pair of boots
I cannot do autumn essentials without mentioning my favourite pair of over-the-knee boots. They are by far the most expensive pair I have ever bought but without any hesitation I can confirm that they are worth it.
Over-the-knee boots are not for everyone and maybe biker boots are more your style ? I have a pair of beautiful grey boots that I will be thrilled to share with you in the coming weeks. Whatever the choice is, make sure you look after them properly especially if they are suede.
Let me know if I have missed anything and what are your favourite autumn pieces you relay on ! I am happy to answer any of you questions or suggestion so fire away…
Thank you very much for stopping by and I hope to see you all very soon !!
