Autumn/Winter Wardrobe

Autumn is fast approaching, and although the temperature gage insists on hovering around “incinerate” I am looking towards the cooler months and thinking about where I want to go with my wardrobe this year. I think that by now I have a fairly firm grasp on my own personal style. I know what suits my body type, and try to buy pieces that I will actually wear, rather than things that will sit in my closet for a few months before being given way. So here is the general outline of what I have/want for Autumn/Winter 2010 –

Tops
** sheer black / print / floral blouses (will look to buy 2 new blouses this season)
* black cashmere v-neck sweater
** black cashmere cardigan (x2)
* black studded silk tank
black silk/jersey tee
elizabeth and james black satin blouse

Bottoms
** black pencil skirts (will need to purchase 2 new skirts for work)
black cigarette style pants
** dark denim jeans (will need 1-2 new pairs)

Dresses
* asos dark purple/floral print dress [ordered]
basque dark green/black peacock print dress
black/grey polka dot print babydoll dress
ann taylor black dress w. rosette shoulders

Outerwear
* black long length blazer
* black leather jacket
black tie-waist trench

Accessories
* cashmere tube scarf
house of harlow peacock ring
* oversized ray ban wayfarers
* oversized black leather handbag
3.1 phillip lim black patent clutch
vintage peacock clutch
* oversized black leather clutch
mimco black embellished hair piece
diamond stud earrings
tiffany & co initial necklace
* black pearl earrings

Shoes
* lanvin black leather ballet flats
country road black leather ballet flats
black patent ankle boots
wittner flat black leather boots
wittner black patent pointed flats
chanel burgundy round toe heels

All items that have an asterix next to them are things I’ll need to find & purchase. I probably won’t manage to get everything that I want, but hopefully I’ll find some really beautiful pieces this season. As for hair and makeup, I’m finding this picture of Miranda Kerr to be a source of inspiration –

As I do at the start of every season, I will be cleaning out my wardrobe tomorrow and sorting out the “do not want” the “maybe want” and the “must keep” clothes from spring/summer, looking through my stored autumn/winter wardrobe and figuring out what I can make work during the transitional stage between seasons… Do you do re-organise your wardrobe at the start of the new season?

  1. I am in the U.S., so we are just approaching spring and I am trying to do the same with my wardrobe to figure out what I have/need to get. Sunglasses are definitely on the list, along with some new wedge heels. I am a skirt kind of a person, not shorts, so I need several new skirts. I wish I was heading into the autumn instead, though, because it’s my favorite time of year. I love layering and tights before it gets too frigid in the dead of winter.

    • I can’t wait to get myself into a pair of opaque tights! It’s been cold enough on the way to work to justify them, but in the afternoons when I leave work the sun has been quite harsh and hot so it’s just not time yet!

  2. You know me, I’m just trying to work out which direction I want to take my style in. I’m a bit all over the place. I saw some cute blouses on shop bop, however, that you might be interested in. But they’re all spring-ish.

    I’m quite liking Miranda’s hair there, actually. Mine’s so thin and uninspiring.

    • I’m happy to pair a springish sort of blouse with all black for autumn/winter… I find it takes the harshness away from the solid colours. Links please?

  3. Iim waiting for the Spring/Summer to start so I can start wearing most of my dresses. Don’t know why but I have more clothes suited for summer than the colder months. My best buy this winter was a black cashmere cardigan, you can literally wear it with everything!
