Updating Your Wardrobe for Autumn

With the last of the summer weather now quickly fading, it’s time to start packing away your favourite summer dresses and start thinking about your autumn wardrobe. Whether you are looking for wholesale clothingor to update your own wardrobe for autumn, here are some key points to keep in mind.

 

Declutter First

The first step to updating your wardrobe for autumn is to have a clear out of your current collection. This way, you’ll now only have more space to add new pieces but you will also be able to clearly see which essentials you need to replace for the new season. Once you have selected everything that no longer fits you or suits your personal style, you could even consider selling this on, and using the profits to fund your new pieces!

 

Consider What You Have

Guilty of owning half a dozen pairs of ankle boot already? Or perhaps you’re a jumper hoarded with a substantial stash of cashmere? If either of these situations sounds familiar, it’s because most of us already own our favourite pieces in multiple variations, and likely do not need to invest in more. To really give your wardrobe a facelift for the new season, focus on the pieces that you don’thave, rather than reaching for the same styles over and over again.

 

Eye Up the Latest Trends

While good style is eternal, fashion trends are far more fickle, changing year on year. So, before you splurge on some new pieces, make sure that you flick through the latest styles guides and do some research on what designers have been sending out on the runway – this will help you shop for the most stylish pieces so that you look on trends for AW19. It will also ensure that you spend your money where it will make the most difference by adding a fresh vibe that you can easily mix with your existing favourites and everyday essentials.

 

Pick the Perfect Prints

Dressing for autumn is all about moody tones and strong prints. One of the easiest ways to bring your current collection up-to-date is by buying pieces that tick these autumnal boxes. Herringbone and check prints are both must-haves for autumn, either in a timeless black and white colourway or cool tones like dark blues and hunter greens.

Then there are the spots. Any fashion lover worth their salt will be going dotty after this classic ‘50s print. Offering some much needed balance to the overall dark and moody colour palette we all seem to favour in winter, a few polka dot print pieces, oversized or dainty, in lighter colourways will help you bridge the gap between the last of the sunshine, and the proper start of the gloomy autumn weather.

 

Invest in Boots

If there’s one area where you should splurge to update your wardrobe, it’s footwear. A good pair of boots will see you through the entire season so it’s worth finding the perfect pair as they will likely see a lot of wear and tear. Ankle boots are always a strong choice – both flat and high heeled – while knee-high boots add a certain level of elegance to even the most basic outfit.
