Autumn fashion: what’ll keep you warm AND stylish?
As this article is being written, a fog is hanging outside. It’s a far cry from the autumn of our dreams. The autumn we love is filled with orange leaves falling neatly from trees. A vague sun illuminates the world from a clear sky, and your favorite woolen scarf is barely even necessary.
Reality is a little different. Fall is a season of rain, fog and an oncoming cold. The winter snap has a dry run throughout autumn, perfecting sub-zero temperatures for the festive season. Your teeth will be chattering long before November’s hit the scene.
And you won’t be able to wear that summer bikini at all. In fact, you can forget all about your beach bod – in the big chill, your wardrobe should be well-stocked with winter woollies and snug thick sweaters.
That doesn’t mean style has to be flung out the window. Follow our guide and you’ll be able to keep warm AND look great.
Some major fashion lines labor under the impression that no one really enjoys wearing warm clothing. Dresses continue to be thinner than sugar paper and still have open straps and heels bigger than icebergs. And that’s during the middle of winter.
Take a short walk up the high street. There you’ll find clothing stores showcasing sequined dresses with no protection from the cold, even while icicles hang from their windows.
Not all clothing brands limit their range – some even manage to make their autumn and winter ranges stylish and toasty-warm.
For our money, the ranges found on the Lavitta website are well worth a gander. Featuring major brands, a broad spectrum of styles and warm, thick materials, here is a company that knows how to combine high fashion with snug comfort.
Splash of Summer
You don’t have to dress drably just because the weather outside is grey. While more muted tones fit the season, a splash of summer color can act as an ideal counterpoint to the rain.
Don’t flood your autumnal look with bright neon – the more colorful elements of your dress should be subtle.
An orange scarf to complement your dark dress; a bright set of badges to add some zest to your coat – little things are what brightens up an autumn costume.
Winter is Coming
As Jon Snow of Game of Thrones loves to say, winter is coming – and it’ll arrive before you know it. Surely you don’t want to shell out for an entirely new outfit once it arrives?
When you’re filling your wardrobe with new clothes, make sure they can withstand the chills beyond autumn and into those sub-zero temperatures. After all, fashion doesn’t have to pale against the big freeze.
