Invest in essential basics and a pair of well-tailored trousers
Everyday basics are the kinds of pieces you’ll find yourself reaching for time and time again. When it comes to dressing for the cooler months, choose block-coloured long-sleeve tops and simple off the shoulder cuts that flatter your silhouette, or tap into the latest streetwear trends and choose an oversized tee that you can wear underneath warming outerwear. Embrace elegant crepe tops in cuts that contour your waist and are enhanced with intricate metal detailing and premium stitching. Inject some vibrancy into your wardrobe with statement-making styles that shine on their own, or add an unexpected edge to your autumn outfit by clashing bright pops of colour.
In the bottoms department, look for structured pants that are carefully tailored to hug your legs in all the right places. Choose universally flattering wide-leg pants or slimming faux leather slacks that feature statement seams to add an unexpected edge to your overall aesthetic. When the weather takes a turn, you can team your bottoms with a slimming turtleneck and a mid-length blazer draped over your shoulders. Add pops of colour in the shoe department or accessorise with bags and clutches that are enhanced with gold hardware. Whatever your style, easy-to-pair and well-tailored trousers can be dressed up, dressed down, or worn your way for a complete fall outfit that will no doubt impress.
It’s all about layering — Coats, jackets and blazers
When there’s a chill in the air, you can never go wrong with an autumn outfit that’s elevated with warming outerwear. Whether you’re casual tops or relaxed-fitting jeans, layering is the key to effortless style regardless of what you're wearing underneath. Choose a soft and textured Carla Zampatti oversized coat in a classic silhouette, a sleek monochrome longline blazers, or a cropped leather jacket for off-duty weekends. Embrace different textures, timeless cuts and luxurious materials to add volume, depth and dimension to your complete fall outfit.
If you love bright pops of colour and edgy prints, add a twist to your autumn outfit with a patterned or chequered coat layered over your shoulders. If you prefer basic outerwear garments that you can dress up or dress down, choose a trusty coat in a neutral hue. Whatever outerwear garment you’re investing in, think long term — you’ll want to be wearing these essential layering pieces from one season to the next, so know your style, play into it and stop playing it safe!
Suit up for work or play
The perfect trans-seasonal workwear staple, every stylish woman needs a well-tailored jumpsuit or two-piece suit in her wardrobe rotation. Equal parts sleek and sophisticated, embrace a silhouette-hugging, wide-leg jumpsuit that’s complete with layered detailing and soft fabrics that can be moved and draped around the body for a range of fits.
For dress-down days, team your complete fall outfit with all-white leather sneakers or elevate your look with sky-high heels — perfect for elegant evening events and wedding receptions. Accessorise and adorn your wrist with encircled diamond bracelets or choose a thick gold Carla brooch to add a touch of glamour to your autumn outfit.
A sleek and stylish tailored suit is another winning autumn outfit for ladies. From old faithful black sets to brightly coloured suit jackets and pants in a saturated hue, you can style your jacket and pant set however you please. Layered details such as monochromatic undershirts and vests will redefine this wardrobe staple, while bold-coloured separates will clash and complement each other.
