To mark the launch of our autumn collection, we chat seasonal dressing with Vicky McClure, Clemmie Hooper and Holly Willoughby
What do you love about autumn style?
I love chunky jumpers, coats and boots, and get excited about re-using my winter wardrobe. I enjoy summer but find it harder to dress for, whereas autumn/winter is a good time for me fashion-wise. It makes me feel good.
Is there anything you wear on repeat?
My jeans. I’ve never been good at wearing skirts and although I like wearing dresses for special occasions, I’ll always revert to jeans – black, blue, baggy or straight. I also wear white T-shirts all the time. I don’t wear a lot of bright colours. Left to my own devices, I tend to keep things quite simple.
How would you describe your style in a sentence?
Casual and comfy, although I really like tailoring, and always feel comfortable in a suit. I’d rather wear one out than a dress.
Are you a fan of autumn dressing?
I love dressing for autumn – it feels like my natural habitat. You can start layering up your clothes, such as putting a turtleneck underneath a lighter dress to eke out the wear a bit longer.
What are your staple pieces for the season?
A good pair of leather ankle boots are a must. You can wear them with bare legs when it’s still warm and then add tights later on. And a good mac – I’ve got an M&S camel trench coat I’ve been wearing for years and years, it comes out every spring and autumn.
What colours are you drawn to at this time of year?
All those lovely mustard, brown and rust colours, plus rich jewel tones. It’s a nice change after wearing bright colours or white in the summer.
What’s your hero piece for autumn?
Definitely this floral dress – it’s really comfy but still a statement, and I think the colours are gorgeous.
