As the shorter days set in, it's the perfect time to give a little love to your closet. All those coats, knits and boots that have been languishing over the summer - ignored in favour of slip dresses and camisoles - can finally have their time. Try pieces on and figure out what you are still in love with, and what can be sent out in the world to find a new home. Then, and only then, should you think about the wardrobe staples you need to get into the fall spirit.
Luckily for you, we’ve put together a handy guide to shopping the key trends for AW22 so you can fill those drafty gaps in your closet with Reluxe's cosy essentials.
Good outerwear will keep you warm throughout the chillier months without sacrificing style. After all, if your coat is a hero, who cares what you are wearing underneath?! This season’s trendiest cover-ups include quilted jackets, puffers, trench coats, and plaid prints, each of which you can expect to enjoy from this winter to the next. If you’re after a coat for life, not just for Christmas, opt for neutral tones with timeless appeal.
By their very nature, knits can inject some much-needed fun into a low-key outfit, so get creative with your patterns, textures, and colours. A bright cable knit, like this chunky Isabel Marant number, hits all the right notes. While we’re still enjoying the odd sunny day, look for lightweight knits you can layer with a jacket before breaking out the big boys. If you prefer an oversized fit that you can wear from the office to the weekend, find a slouchier style with voluminous sleeves and a longline hem for that casual, cosy look.
The start of autumn is the ideal time to replace any footwear past its expiry with a pair you’ll love ‘til next spring. Suede is practically synonymous with fall fashion, like these tan Celine knee highs, but once the weather takes a turn, leather is your go-to choice. This guide wouldn’t be complete without a special mention for our personal favourite; the humble riding boot. With their sturdy construction, these shoes are ready to take you elegantly (and sensibly) from day to night.
