Trends come and go, and it is not always easy give your style a complete overlook each season, but there are always quick updates you can get away with. A little layering here, a little dash of colour there, and you’d be surprised how easy it is to spruce up a wardrobe for the new season. Autumn 2016, especially, comes with a set of trends you can jump on to with a minimal budget and minimum effort.
Spin your Slip Dress
Slip dresses were big last summer, and you don’t need to be in a hurry to shove them to the back of your wardrobe just yet. With a polo neck or a button up, you can easily spin them for the new season. Some more layering in the shape of a cardi and a duster coat can see you straight to the new year.
Have a Pyjama Party
As we continue to blur the boundaries between inner wear and outer wear, and daywear and nightwear, don’t pack your pyjamas up just yet. As days get shorter, what is better than lounging around in our pyjamas all day long? Silky separates are easy to find and pull off, layered with a funnel neck underneath and paired with ankle boots.
March into the Military
A bit of military detailing goes a long way in updating your wardrobe for the new season. Whether its golden buttons or frogging braids, get in on the military act with a coat which will give your outfit a huge overhaul.
Get Shirty Layered
Shirt dresses were huge last summer and you can stretch them a while longer by layering up. Make like Tome and team with thigh high boots and season’s staple mac or pull over a polo neck and pair with jeans.
Make it Puff
Outerwear is the easiest way to update your look and if you are investing in outerwear this autumn, make it the key trend of the season: the puffer jacket. To get the ultimate trendy look, make it oversized.
Invest in a Velvet One-Piece
Sometimes trying to clash or coordinate can be a hassle, especially as mornings get darker and days shorter when you don’t want to put the effort in a season-savvy wardrobe. For those days, do yourself a favour now and invest in a velvet one piece for the ultimate one and done chic.
Sport a Choker Scarf
Spin out your maxi dresses, off the shoulder tops, oversize button down shirts with a scarf worn as a choker as seen on the Chloé runway for an instant style update without spending a single penny.
