A new leaf: your autumn wardrobe essentials
Bright knits, checks, big handbags, even bigger boots. We've got your autumn/winter 2021 fashion fix sorted.
Keeping It Casual
Heard of Love & Luxe? It’s the new lifestyle brand brought to you from Insta-sensation Becks of @thehousebuild who also owns luxury bridal boutique Isabella Grace. So she knows a thing or two about fashion. Specialising in comfy, yet stylish, pieces just like this signature ‘off duty’ hoodie – it’s the perfect piece to slip on when in a hurry! (Aren’t we always?) Don’t forget you can get a 10% discount on your first order.
Take The Floor
A change in seasons means a change in clothing and what better way to make the transition than in The Santana Dress from Kitch Clothing in Tunbridge Wells. Definitely one with the wow-factor, it’s easily paired with a chunky boot and leather jacket for the perfect autumn outfit. Twirl at your leisure.
A Chic Shirt
Did someone say shacket? There’s no easier way to incorporate leather into your Autumn wardrobe than in the form of a classic button up. The Edie leather shirt from local boutique Odyl is a versatile piece that can be worn as a jacket, a shirt or over a dress, made from a buttery soft leather in this season’s deep green. AND get 15% off with our exclusive discount ‘MS15’.

Checks are big this season (together with tartan and patchwork), especially when paired with a chunky knit. And this skirt, from Henley’s Busby & Fox, can easily be glammed up with a leather jacket.
What a belter
Padded coats are back and this divine belted olive green number from Mango is just the job to hide grubby jeans, and keep out the autumn chill in style.
This season’s boots are kicking cruddy weather into touch… and the bigger they are, the better. There’s bovver boots aplenty on the high street right now, but we love these buckled beauties from Hush.
Love at first sight
I take the AW 2021 logo trend and raise you with a pair of jaunty wide legged Maeve Je T’aime cropped wide leg trousers from Anthropologie. Two words: Scene Stealers.
… because if you were wondering how to carry off head-to-toe knits, here’s your answer. Jigsaw’s wool mix rib trackpant. Comfort? Style? On trend? Tick. Tick. Tick.
Go big and go bold with jeans this autumn and flash those tanned ankles before the mercury drops. These denim culottes from cult Scandi brand Arket are right on trend be it a lunch date, walk in the park or, dare we say it, a mini break?
Yes. Yes. Yes baby! We love this bright Whistles jumper that screams positivity even when you’re not feeling it… and it’s from their sustainable cotton collection too. Happy days.
All in one
This Next jumpsuit will be your hardest working wardrobe item this season – dress it down with sneakers or up with heels, and you’ve nailed day to night AND it’s comfy? …. You’re welcome.
Bags of joy
Yes, we know it’s big – that’s the point. This season you won’t be needing to travel light. And it comes with a leopard print pouch! Talk about getting your back to school style fix. No wonder La Redoute is getting into the fashion pages.
