When the weather gets cold, all we care about is keeping ourselves warm and cosy. Such an approach to basic comfort needs is what often leads to falling into jeans+knit routine, and it is such a bore. This autumn, however, is rich on luxury goods that will help you break the vicious circle.
Through our observation of the new arrivals in high fashion we were able to single out six trends that you just cannot go wrong with. Worn on their own or combined, the following luxury goods guarantee a maximal impact with minimal effort.
- Matching sets
If you struggle to coordinate your outfits or would like to sleep that extra 15 minutes you spend staring blankly at the wardrobe thinking of what combo works best, we have good news for you. Co-ords are big this season, and so the matching sets are here to become the wardrobe game-changers you need. It’s a no brainer to pull off an outfit that’s already designed to complement itself through simplicity and luxe chic. That’s the easiest and most effortless way to look instantly elevated - wear a top and bottom that match and you are sorted for any occasion. The sets are usually so wholesome and complete in their simplicity they don’t need extensive accessorising. Stuck for how to pull the look off? Checking out some designer suits to get inspired would be a good start.
- Leather separates
Leather never goes out of fashion, but this year proved to be the peak of its popularity. It isn’t difficult to tell why: luxury goods made of leather, faux or genuine, have a strong vibe of chic around them. Most leather clothes are inter-seasonal too, therefore investing in a piece or two to wear all year round is always a wise decision. Since it never particularly goes out of fashion, the piece is likely to live up to its price fivefold (if not more). We recommend returning to number one on this list. But unlike double-denim, double leather has no stigma in fashion circles. A matching leather suit is a sure way to go to reap maximum luxe out of your autumn outfit.
Animal prints were all the hype since in early 2019, and we never expected them to go away easily. However, there’s been some shifting between the animals themselves. Previously favoured and worn in every colour and shape leopard print has been replaced by the ever-so-luxurious snake print. While snake print-everything is the main hype at the moment, the cult piece sporting this trend is shoes. Many fashion powerhouses were quick to pick up on the rising popularity of this trend and created masterpieces adapted to it. So, it’s time you put your basic black heels and boots away. Instead, raid the latest collection of designer shoes to get yourself a pair of trendy snake-printed footwear.
- Structured bags
After the fever of weird and tricky-to-pull-off bags finally passed, the world of luxury goods is turning back to classics. Easy to wear and match, structured bags have earned their spot on the list of timeless pieces and have a reputation of complementing any outfit. However, the world of fashion does not elevate a classic staple without changing it a little, and the new approach to structured bags is delightful. The shapes take braver courses than the classics and blend beautifully with new colours and old, timeless designs. Upon investing in a designer bag of this type you won’t just follow the newest trend: you will gain a great addition to your collection of timeless staples.
- Menswear-inspired blazers
Similarly to structured bags, blazers have always been regarded as a must-have wardrobe piece. The trend this season covers slightly oversized designer blazers of dark and neutral colours, with a tint of borrowed-from-the-boys coolness. Just as a regular tailored jacket, the trending style contributes towards a polished classic look, serving as either a statement piece or the one that unites various components of the outfit. It is comfortable, chic and versatile, for neutral colours are known to match the boldest of shades and designs, either toning them down or making them pop. At the end of the day, the look achieved through wearing a blazer depends on the wearer rather than the blazer - so let your imagination flow free.
- Unusual pants
The reason ‘jeans routine’ is a thing is due to the comfort and little effort and prep it requires. Perfect when all you care about is staying warm and dressing up quickly. The world of fashion recognised the reason behind the popularity of this trend and this season came up with an offer we can’t resist: a vast variety of different kinds of trousers to replace our boring black jeans. Ranging from cargo pants to printed trousers, similar to your beloved designer denim, they are comfortable and versatile. The ruling colours are neutral and as easy to pair with other pieces as the basic jeans - and even the jeans market this season is extraordinary. To knock you out from the repetitive clothing routine, this autumn is rich on new cuts and designs that are just as versatile as your day-to-day trousers.
As the temperature drops, it is very easy to fall into a routine of wearing the same jeans-knit combo up until it gets warm again. However, the autumn of 2019 is rich on different options of luxury goods that are just as comfortable and easy to wear. Don’t believe us?
