Much and and all as I adore the soft pastel shades and fly-away fabrics synonymous with Summer, I am revelling in my current preparations for the coming season. One cannot help but conjure up images of crackling log fires and ochre Autumn leaves once the darker colour palette of forest greens and burnt russet appears in the clothing department. My blogging ventures for the next while shall focus on the pieces which I feel work best at transitioning your wardrobe from Summer to Autumn. A classic white shirt, a pair of androgynous patent brogues, or a fne-knit cardigan are adaptable staples and valuable additions to your style arsenal.
My next post will reveal some of the best, classic shirts, brogues, knits and accessories I have spied - from high-street to high-end, and everything in between. In the meantime, here is an example of how one such piece can transition from one outfit to another.
A favourite pair of patent navy brogues, worn with:
Dark-wash jeans, a poplin shirt, art-deco inspired necklace and cashmere wrap;
A printed ankle-grazing jumpsuit, a cropped navy blazer and vintage/antique gold jewellery.
A victoriana style blouse, navy velvet neck-tie, a black wool skirt and dark tights;
This is merely one demonstration of how I get the most out of the pieces in my wardrobe, and how versatile they can be. More on this note coming before next week...
