5 Autumn musthaves

19 October 2020

Hello my dear,

This is part of my new project. I want to add a little fashion side to my blog. I have a huge passion for fashion but I have never exposed it here. I don’t know exactly why. I have a few ideas in stock to change things up. In fact, you might see a lot of fashion related blogs in the next few weeks.

In this post, we will talk about 5 basics to have in your wardrobe in Autumn. You might already own some or all of those items. I will be sure to enclose a few suggestions you could shop if you don’t.


Brown or Black boots


First on my list and a favourite of mine for years are booties. I long for them in Summer and cannot wait to wear them in Autumn. I feel like they make any outfit fabulous. Shoes are definitely one of my favourite wardrobe items anyway.



Big comfy Scarf


Scarfs are just the cosiest thing. I have a passion for big soft scarves that can almost be called a plaidie. I find it so comforting and pleasing.



Camel warm sweater


Nothing beats a soft sweater. As you might remember from an old blogpost, I freaking love sweaters. It’s probably my most worn item of clothing. I have so many sweaters. It’s unreal. The other day, I was trying to reduce them and decide on which to keep. I failed gloriously. I cannot seem to be able to get rid of my babies.



Faux Leather skirt


I used to own several leather skirts. Several shapes and forms of different colours of (fake) leather. I recently decided to size down. As I moved house, I didn’t have the same size of wardrobe. I was thus forced to part with some of my most well loved pieces. However, I think one should own at least 2 leather skirts. If you had to pick only one: a black leather skirt you could wear on a night out and at work would be best.



Cool jacket


A jacket that has style. A statement piece if you wish. It doesn’t have to be in bold colour. You should pick a jacket that would make any outfit pop. I am thinking of an aviator jacket, a leather jacket, a cool parka with faux fur… Pick your favourite and the one that suits your style. It should fit well with the rest of your wardrobe.




In conclusion, what one should always remember in this area of consumption is to invest in key pieces and not always go for the trendy pieces. You will get tired of them and end up losing money. Over the years, I have gathered a few pieces that I will always wear and cherish. The only advice I wish I had received was to always buy clothing that is a little bigger than your actual size. My weight has fluctuated so much over the last two years that I had to let go of my favourite pieces. I was so crushed. Now, I prefer something a little less fitted. This way I know that I will get as much out of it as I can.

I will always have those 5 items in my autumn wardrobe: a scarf, a jacket, a skirt, a sweater and a pair of booties. They have been a part of my essential wardrobe for years.

What about you, what are your key item for Autumn?
