Every month, fashion editor, blogger and stylist Carly Stevens shares her favourite outfit of the moment
As seasons go, autumn has to be the most reliable, weather-wise. While summer can be a mixed bag, you can guarantee the temperature will drop come October. In my opinion, this justifies every fashion purchase; from coats to jumpers, boots and trousers. I’ll wear them all, and all at once when it’s cold enough!
This two-piece trouser suit, worn with a shirt and jumper, together or separately, offers endless wearability. The blue adds a refreshing twist and, while the tweed screams of heritage, the loose box cut gives a contemporary edge. Pairing it with a boyfriend fit white shirt pays homage to the androgynous trend, and appeals to my inner tomboy.
I also love a patent accessory. Step forward (pun intended) these comfy brogues and black satchel – both great modern takes on a classic. And it goes without saying that the shiny surfaces work well in the rain this ‘reliable’ season will inevitably bring.
