Warm Up Your Wardrobe

At The Liberty we know that it can be a challenge transitioning to your autumn/winter wardrobe, so we have some top tips to keep you on trend this season.

Autumn/winter fashion isn’t just about piling on the layers and sacrificing style in favour of warmth. So to help you ease your way into the cold mornings and dark evenings of the winter months, we’ve found some key pieces that will add a spring to your step despite the drop in temperature.

The Classic Coat

The coat is an essential part of any winter wardrobe and classic, tailored coats are trending this season.

Camel coats were a major trend throughout AW16 and are set to be just as popular this year, saving us from a black wardrobe abyss. We love this 2 Pocket Wool Rich Coat £119 from Marks and Spencer and paired with a t-shirt or jumper, which is extremely flattering for any silhouette.

The Liberty Top Tip: The coat is a winter investment and will be worn day in, day out. Take your time and shop around for this essential to make sure you bag the one which perfectly matches your style and shape.

Lady In Red

Red is the ‘it’ colour for autumn/winter and despite saying goodbye to summer, this bright, bold colour is going nowhere. Red doesn’t have to be intimidating and can be easily incorporated into any outfit. This red Frill Sleeve Woven T-shirt £17.60 from Dorothy Perkins is perfect for those wanting a splash of colour, while keeping it casual.

The Liberty Top Tip: There are many hues of red so choose the one that most suits you and your skin tone. A ruby red compliments a pale skin tone.

High-Waist Heaven

The black jean is every woman’s best friend and we can’t get enough of these black Super Skinny High Waist Hallie Jeans £22.99 from New Look. From casual to chic, they are a day-to-day must have and certainly solve the ‘jeans and a nice top’ dilemma in a jiffy.

The Liberty Top Tip: High-waisted Jeans are perfect for chillier days. Pair with an on-trend roll neck jumper for extra warmth.

Buckled Up

Biker chic is once again back in style and we can’t get enough of dark leathers and studded bags which is why we’re obsessed with these stylish Merlin Buckle Ankle Boots £85 from Topshop.

The Liberty Top Tip: Boots are a necessity, but don’t just choose a plain pair. Picking a style with buckles or studs helps to create a statement piece that will spruce up any outfit.

Scarf Season

The best cosy companion, scarfs are a seasonal must. Trendy, interchangeable and warm, scarves can easily be dressed up or down. This black and white Jacquard-Weave Scarf £14.99 from H&M is bang on trend and with the slogan print will update any look instantly.

The Liberty Top Tips: Print scarfs are perfect for those who like to wear dark, block colours, as it adds a little something extra to the outfit.
