Magic of Autumn
There is something magical about autumn: The crisp morning air, darker nights, colourful foliage… and fashion. It’s my favorite time of the year and I always feel myself coming back to life after the long lazy summer days.
I love dressing myself darker shades because they look infinitely more chic than the juicy summer tones that often make people look like they are trying too hard or are simply living in a coconut scented fantasy.
Wrap me up in cool grey, stylish navy, earthy brown, buttery beige, powdery muted pastels and edgy black instead.
Best elements of autumn fashion
I am wild about combining different textures for interesting looks, for example crisp cotton with tweed or silk with leather, that are both my signature styles. There is also something very comforting about being more covered and this hasn’t got so much to do with age.
I already fell hard for fall fashion when I was a teenager. Every September I am most delighted about the opportunity to start wearing my safety blanket -black opaque tights- again after months of running around with my lily white varicose-vein-ridden legs on display.
Versatility of autumn fashion
My unconditional love for autumn reached it’s current height when I worked in retail where autumn was a very important season. People tend to invest more in their autumn wardrobes because it’s mostly work wear and has a longer life span than summer fashion has. And when they are going to invest more they want to be sure that they are buying the right things.
This was, and still is, a wonderful challenge for me and even now as my own boss when buying for summer I am already thinking how the item could translate into fall or even spring. This way my clients get more for their money and that is a wonderful thing!
Busy autumn ahead
