Although the heatwave is still at its peak, the autumn is steadily creeping upon us. With the days of colourful cocktails at the poolside being replaced by all things orange and pumpkin, your summer capsule of designer items is to adopt a different colour scheme too.
When it comes to autumn, it’s always tricky: the transition period doesn’t feel like autumn at all, and by the time jumper season begins you find yourself falling behind the ruling trends. To avoid the chaos that ensues pretty much every autumn, we have prepared an ultimate autumn capsule of designer items that will get you covered.
Nothing is more essential, convenient and versatile than a pair of good quality black jeans. Suitable for the streets, office and even a night out, a pair of designer jeans will become a timeless staple piece of every wardrobe. Additionally, this autumn we can see black being one of the ruling trends. While dark florals are said to be the king of the season, a head-to-toe black outfits will definitely have a success as well.
Pairing a pair of black jeans with a plain black shirt is a no brainer - and to avoid it looking dull, make a statement with accessories. We place our bets on western-inspired big buckled belts and snake-skin cowboy boots. Not only will this elevate an otherwise plain outfit, but will give it such chic you would have never expected being achievable with close to no effort.
Every woman must own a statement dress. Given how easy they are to wear and style, combined with their timelessness, it is a definite must-have of the designer items. The best part is that there are multiple choices on the market too - however, we would like to single out Ganni. Rich on prints and colours, these designer dresses will never fail to make a statement.
Best thing is that statement dresses will get you noticed without any effort. Being so wholesome and bright on its own, the statement dress does not need any accessorising to make heads turn. Simply pair it with strappy sandals and reap all the compliments.
The simpler, the better. When you have no time to coordinate different bits of your outfit and the weather is no longer suitable for statement dresses, another season’s staple will come to your aid. From the very beginning of the year we have observed boilersuits being a must-have and the trend is still strong.
With a rise of everything utility-related, we can guarantee that boilersuits will linger longer. Available in different colours, sleeve and pants length, fabrics and details, they are the most desirable of the designer items this season. Match them with chunky sandals or ankle boots when it gets cold: that’s all you need for a complete outfit.
Blazers don’t go out of fashion, but they tend to resurface with extra strength sometimes. This autumn is one such time. We have already discussed how blazers are to rule the streets this year, and now we would like to clarify it further: cream blazers are the ones you cannot go wrong with.
A combo we promise you can always turn to will become your best friend for many seasons. Cream blazer + straight-leg jeans + Gucci loafers = simple yet chic outfit. This is what the formula of success looks like. Also, extra fashion points if the blazer has shoulder pads.
Suits and blazers are go-to this year. However, keeping the summer-autumn transition in mind, this season it’s short suits that trend. Having strict suit trousers replaced by shorts may sound like blasphemy, but we assure you it works like a spell.
Paired with pearl hair sliders and strappy sandals, the otherwise serious outfit takes on the vibes of passing summer yet the seriousness of autumn. A smart yet playful and comfortable look is definitely what we all need when getting over the summer blues.
As you might have gathered already, this season is all about comfort and convenience. Feeling comfortable is a trend itself this autumn, and therefore tight pencil skirts no longer have a place in your wardrobe.
Replace them with wide-leg trousers and sleeveless turtlenecks for the killer office attire. It feels as comfy as wearing pyjamas and looks as chic as if you’ve just stepped off a catwalk. As we always say: designer items must be as comfortable as they are beautiful. We are glad the world of fashion seems to share our views.
Given how consistent trends have been this year, you probably already have most of these pieces. If there is still something missing from your perfect autumn capsule, take a look around Kture!
