Adapting your wardrobe for autumn/winter

Having a colour palette for your autumn/winter wardrobe Just because the temperature has dropped, doesn’t mean that you should lose the bright and cheerful colour palette you had going on in your wardrobe over the summer. Of course, autumn/winter is all about layering up, wearing those thick chunky boots and trying to hide those fluffy socks under your trousers… but who said your A/W wardrobe had to reflect the sombre climate?! If you want to try out playful colours for the season, but you’re afraid of testing the waters, why not start by adding one bold coloured piece to your wardrobe. If you’re all black everything in your wardrobe, then this will definitely subtly liven up your closet. This Armani Exchange Honeybee Logo Knit from Robert Goddard is the perfect helper in adding some flavour to your wardrobe. Not to mention, its high neck and large ribbed sleeves are perfect for the winter chills. Stylish AND cosy…     Yellow is definitely the IN colour this season. Here’s content creator and influencer Emily Parr AKA Style Lobster channelling her inner sunshine, wearing Jigsaw’s Cloud Cashmere Crew Neck Jumper at our Style Safari event back on October 10th. Emily says that yellow and the pistachio yellow trend that is flooding all of our wardrobes right now is “winters answer to summers mint green” and we’re all for it!   Layering your outfits for the chilly weather this autumn/winter Layering up this season is an absolute MUST to tackle those sniffly noses, but the question is, how can we layer up but still look cute?!
