Planning your wardrobe for Autumn 2023

As I write this post I am sitting in our apartment in Grimaud, having flown here last Monday. The weather is hot, humid and overcast. I am therefore still wearing my summer dresses, tees and trousers. However, I am beginning to plan my wardrobe for Autumn 2023.

Details of above:

Black leather cross-body bag Cos || Pink cashmere sweater MarksandSpencer || Light pink scarf Superdry || Checked relaxed longline coat MarksandSpencer || Silver hoop earrings ( US link) Boden || Black Ponte trousers (US link) Boden || knee high black boots JohnLewis&Partners.

Before I left the UK I bought the pink cashmere short sleeve polo neck sweater. I reckon it will be an excellent interim piece to wear under lightweight jackets and then teamed with a chunky cardigan or under my denim jacket later in the season.

The weather these days seems to be very mercurial with the seasons all a bit topsy-turvy. We need to plan our wardrobes carefully to maximise our outfits with the minimum effort. I spent some time checking out the new Autumn Collections in the Bentalls Centre in Kingston. I took quite a few photos and will be posting them shortly. There was definitely a wide selection of rich autumn colours on the rails. There was however a good selection of the cooler greys and navies. I have not worn grey for a while so I think I will be buying a few key pieces in the lighter tones. Both grey and navy work well if you want to add some brighter colours near your face.

Planning your wardrobe for Autumn 2023 – cool colours.

    Oh to be wearing summer tees! Heating has come on, and my wardrobe consists or rain mac and wellies, but we are counting ourselves lucky we haven’t been flooded! Enjoy your break!

    Beautiful selections! My coloring is warmer, and I usually can’t wear pink or navy, but you make me want to try again. I love the coat and pink cashmere sweater. I look forward to more of your pictures!

    I don’t normally lean towards such bright colors in the fall/winter, but these pinks are making me rethink that!
