Autumnal dressing is here, and it’s time to discover the must-have pieces you need to stride into the new season in style. The Edit has you covered with smart casual looks for all occasions.
Don’t judge us: we’re hyped for sweater season. There’s nothing we love more than pulling on a great knit that’s stylish, cosy and easy to wear. Grey continues to be a key player season after season, so why not invest in this ribbed sweater? Wear it with navy trousers as a more interesting alternative to black and our square-toed ballet pumps for effortless office style. Alternatively, team it with your favourite go-to jeans and trainers for weekend plans.
Tailored suiting is still on the style radar for autumn, so wear your blazer oversized and team with wide-leg trousers for a newer, slouchier version of the iconic power suit. Give it an updated feel by wearing shocking pink with pops of magenta and damson: the fashion crowd can’t get enough of tonal dressing. And trust us, a limited colour palette makes summoning a put-together outfit on Monday mornings so much easier.
Choosing a new coat heralds the start of shorter, colder days and blustery autumnal walks with your nearest and dearest. Top of our list for this year? An aviator jacket is a natural progression from last season’s bomber. Our version comes in luxurious bitter-chocolate faux shearling with a super-cosy trim. Wear with a colour-pop knit for contrast and the latest grown-up iteration of the maxi skirt in sleek nineties-style satin. Finish off with a pair of chunky boots that’ll take you everywhere in effortless comfort and style.
