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.
