Trends might come and go, but the overall feeling and mood of each season is very consistent. Spring is always colourful and optimistic, summer is bolder and more experimental and winter is a tale of two moods: hibernating and partying. Autumn however tends to be a moment to make sensible purchases, taking stock of what is and isn’t in your wardrobe. September is the time when people invest in classic staples, such as blazers, boots, coats and cashmere. Items that will be building blocks to any wardrobe throughout the year.
They might be simple but we find these items tend to require the most consideration, as you want to be sure you’ve got the best quality and cut to ensure these pieces will really last and do the job. On the high street, & Other Stories’ really excels in this area, with beautiful ankle boots and incredible tailoring. There is a reason why the boxy blazer is one of the most popular items with Who What Wear readers every autumn— it’s really one of the best blazers money can be.
