Fall into Fashion: Your 10 Autumn Wardrobe Essentials
Cosy knits, big handbags, even bigger boots. We've got your autumn 2021 fashion fix sorted, including picks from three fab local boutiques.
This cashmere-blend knit is so fashion it’s a sweater vest; not to be confused with a tank top, which is what your Geography teacher wore. Wear over a long-sleeved dress for extra points (and cosiness). Also comes in pink, available from our very own Sassy and Boo with branches in Malmesbury, Bradford-on-avon and Bath. £78.95
We love that animal print just never gets old, and these cropped wellies are super-practical to boot. Walking the dog just got a little fiercer. Find in Salisbury’s Oso Boutique.
MY NAME IS MAXIMUS
You can never have too much maxi, sometimes known as the buffet dress for obvious reasons. This Ganni number in seersucker is the perfect mid-season solution, equally at home with biker boots or sliders. Willow & Wolf, Marlborough. £210
This season’s boots are kicking cruddy weather into touch… and the bigger they are, the better. There’s bovver boots aplenty on the high street right now, but we love these buckled beauties from Hush.
LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT
I take the AW 2021 logo trend and raise you with a pair of jaunty wide legged Maeve Je T’aime cropped wide leg trousers from Anthropologie. Two words: Scene Stealers.
… because if you were wondering how to carry off head-to-toe knits, here’s your answer. Jigsaw’s wool mix rib trackpant. Comfort? Style? On trend? Tick. Tick. Tick.
Go big and go bold with jeans this autumn and flash those tanned ankles before the mercury drops. These denim culottes from cult Scandi brand Arket are right on trend be it a lunch date, walk in the park or, dare we say it, a mini break?
Yes. Yes. Yes baby! We love this bright Whistles jumper that screams positivity even when you’re not feeling it… and it’s from their sustainable cotton collection too. Happy days.
BAGS OF JOY
Yes, we know it’s big – that’s the point. This season you won’t be needing to travel light. And it comes with a leopard print pouch! Talk about getting your back to school style fix. No wonder La Redoute is getting into the fashion pages.
