Autumnal Wardrobe Staples to Invest In

September 26, 2019

It’s official, summer is coming to an end and so is the time for our wardrobe of floaty dresses, small bags and open-toe sandals. However, it’s not quite time for us to dig out our winter coats and jumpers either. So, what do we wear in this transitional weather?

Here are four autumn wardrobe staples that will help you maintain your style credentials, and act as reliable pieces in the in-between weather:

  1. A Trench Coat

During the autumn months, the weather is usually pretty unpredictable and that means a daily dilemma of whether to put on our light summer jackets or to wear our waterproofs. Well, buying a classic tailored women’s trench coat can help make your mornings a little easier as it’s perfect for the in-between weather and you can throw it on over any outfit for instant chic.

Even better, trench coats are timeless and never go out of style. A well-made trench can last you for years to come so this autumn staple is definitely a good wardrobe investment.

  1. Heeled Boots

Sadly, autumn means the time to show off our pedicures has passed and the sandals and flat shoes will be packed away. But on the bright side, you can invest in a stylish pair of heeled boots to be your footwear staple instead! It’s the perfect choice for your transitional wardrobe as they’ll keep your feet dry and they can easily take you from day to night, without compromising on comfort.

  1. An Umbrella

We can never be sure whether the day will bring rain or shine, so it’s a good idea to stay prepared at all times! Keeping an umbrella handy is vital in the autumn season, making sure you’re never caught off-guard by the weather.

An umbrella can be a stylish addition to your transitional wardrobe, whether you prefer a full walking length umbrella or a compact one. You’ll be amazed at how many different shapes, and designs are available; umbrella designers have considered everything from lightweight styles, water absorbent storage bags to keep your handbag contents dry, and gorgeous colourful designs to make a bold statement.

  1. A Cross-Body Handbag

Life goes on regardless of the weather, so a functional and stylish handbag will see you through autumn (whilst keeping all your valuables dry!).

Waterproof is a given, so a leather handbag will be your best friend in the autumn months. Don’t forget that in the transitional weather you may be juggling an umbrella with your daily coffee and other essentials, so a cross-body bag is a practical choice. It’s big enough to hold everything you need, whilst also keeping your hands free to take on whatever the day throws at you!


Get autumn-ready with our four wardrobe staples that will help you stay stylish and dry as the winter weather creeps in. Whether it’s rain or shine, you’ll always look picture-perfect with these classic pieces that will last you for many more autumns to come.
