The new collections are in store but we won’t be making any rash purchases. Instead we’re looking for some sleek but practical additions that will work hard in our closets for Autumn and beyond. These are our tips for the ultimate Autumn Investment pieces.
Theres a chill in the air and the leaves are starting to turn, which can only mean one thing. As we transition over to a more Autumn appropriate wardrobe, you might be thinking of treating yourself to a well chosen investment piece. Before you make any purchases, check out our favourite Autumnal closet additions. This season we’re inspired by Heritage style pieces that will fit seamlessly into your existing wardrobe.
Stella McCartney has joined forces with fellow British brand Hunter to create these sustainable welly boots. Each boot is created from natural rubber sourced from sustainably managed, certified forests in Guatemala. The ankle height, chunky styles are available in three classic colours, black, clatter grey and our favourite olive. They’re stylish enough for city showers and practical enough for country downpours.
A chic but practical heritage style coat will tie your look together this season. For quality options that won’t break the bank check out new brand Palones. Everything in the collections is limited edition because they are made from recycled and vintage fabrics. So you’re unlikely to bump into anyone else wearing the same thing as you.
If like us you are concerned for the environmental impact of your denim, then why not choose wool denim? Bamford has introduced an innovative, wool denim to their collection for Autumn 2019. Due to the way its produced, wool is a more sustainable alternative to cotton. It has the added benefit of being softer and more durable than traditional denim too. The Rufus jacket in indigo can be worn as a shirt or as a jacket, seamlessly taking you from Autumn to Winter.
A flattering neutral jumpsuit makes for a great addition to any capsule wardrobe. So we were excited to discover London based Vanesa Vinhas’ range of organic cotton jumpsuits. Perfect for work, dinner or dressed down for a casual weekend look, the Highbury is a twist on a traditional boilersuit. Vanesa only uses small factories and independent dress makers to guarantee good working conditions. We’ll be pairing this style with a roll neck and white sneakers to make it Autumn appropriate.
Jerome Studios source all their leather from the meat industry, meaning they aren’t creating new demand for hides. Their collection of uber chic, olive leaf tanned handbags are seasonless, making them an ideal investment piece. The Sash tote works effortlessly for work as well as weekends.
