As you all know (because I yammer on about it, like a broken record), I have a deep desire for eternal summers. I could happily wear sundresses and bask in the Mediterranean heat for the rest of my life and not get bored. I loathe winter, and quickly grow impatient with spring, but I can just about tolerate autumn. And that’s mostly because autumnal colour palettes are so dreamy. Those warm, golden tones are so beautiful to look at – and even more fun to wear!
This autumn I’ve joined forces with one of my favourite British brands, Joules, to show you how I style autumnal hues for both work and weekend. So, if you’re struggling to pull together stylish fall outfit ideas, hopefully these looks will provide a little jolt of inspiration…
When it comes to autumnal workwear, I love to pull an outfit together with a crisp, classic coat. Joules’ Cheltenham Herringbone coat is cut beautifully and is the perfect investment piece for Autumn/Winter. I’ve styled it with Joules’ stag print white shirt (a playful update on a workwear staple) and their khaki skinny jeans. The jeans also come in burgundy, which are equally autumnal…
To help make that work-to-weekend transition easier (or for more casual days in the office), try pairing cable knit sweaters with colourful trousers. Khaki and oatmeal are a great autumnal colour match. And burgundy and berry tones look fantastic when layered together.
Also, it’s worth noting that this tote bag is reversible. The inside is navy blue. So you can to tap into two colour palettes for the price of one!
The weekend outfit is my favourite – mostly because it makes me feel like the leading lady in a 1970’s rom-com. The tan saddle bag really pops against the caramel corduroy skirt and chunky knit. And, for added ’70s-inspired drama, just add the Cheltenham coat and a pair of Ray-Ban aviators!
