From fun accessories to timeless essentials, here are the brands to have on your radar this autumn…
For better or for worse, we’ve all got to know our homes and our wardrobes extremely well over the last few months. And when we say wardrobes, we mean pyjamas.
Thankfully we don’t have to wave goodbye to our unused summer clothes just because autumn is nearly here, and in fact we can see it as an opportunity to flex our style muscles and get creative.
With an arsenal of fashion brands at your disposal at Canary Wharf, you can go forth and add a select number of style staples to make your summer wardrobe work regardless of the season.
Here are the brands to have on your radar and the items to look out for.
1. For monochrome touches
One of the easiest ways to glide into autumn without ditching your summer favourites is to use classic monochrome pieces as a base.
And if it’s chic staples you’re after, look no further than Claudie Pierlot.
The Parisian brand is renowned for its Breton stripes and its sophisticated but modern take on French fashion.
Whether it’s houndstooth-patterned wool coats to throw on and face the cold in, or leather boots and chiffon skirts to give your summer florals an edge, make sure you’re stopping by the store to kit out your wardrobe with a selection of their key capsule pieces.
2. For androgynous chic
There’s no better way to make the most of your wardrobe than by combining the more ‘feminine’ prints and silhouettes of summer with more ‘masculine’ autumn staples.
Seek out hero pieces from Sandro’s collection, like the jacquard denim jumpsuit and double breasted mac and add your own touches to give your autumn wardrobe a refresh without tumbling into a full on overhaul.
The affordable luxury French brand is all about mixing androgynous pieces with more feminine items to create that covetable nonchalant style that takes more thought than it lets on.
3. For playful prints
Prints aren’t reserved for summer alone, and doubling down on your print collection with playful autumn selections is a good way to take your wardrobe to the next level.
Be sure to swing by Kate Spade to peruse this season’s collection of the brand’s signature preppy styles with a playful wink.
From cherry-printed trench coats and sweaters to make the autumn drizzle less gloomy, to delicate necklaces and printed silk dresses, there’s endless opportunities to upgrade your summer wardrobe.
4. For autumn-appropriate pastels
Pastels aren’t exclusively for sunnier climes, and pairing your existing collection with more autumn-appropriate picks is another way to get ahead when it comes to this season’s wardrobe.
Even loyal monochrome lovers will rejoice at Maje’s injection of pink and purple pastels.
The brand has incorporated them into their collection of long cardigans and turtlenecks in a twee-free way to give your autumn wardrobe a cheery refresh.
Don’t forget to check out their classic mom jeans to pair with your summer cami tops for an autumn-appropriate outfit and take a look at their knitted dresses, which are perfect for work and play alike.
5. For timeless accessories
No autumn wardrobe is complete without a trusty collection of accessories to pair with every outfit, and this season Coach has pulled out all the stops.
Pop down to the store in Cabot Place at Canary Wharf and browse their range of chic autumn essentials.
They’re stocking everything from reusable face masks with subtly printed designs to classic black boots and delicate heart stud earrings - the perfect way to pep up your summer wardrobe and give it a fresh twist for autumn.
