How to Update Your Wardrobe for the Change in Weather
Now that Summer has gone, we need to think ahead and start planning the transition of our wardrobe for autumn and winter. The latter seasons of the year demand much warmer, cosier fashion pieces, so it’s imperative that we refresh our wardrobe and find items that’ll see us through the entirety of the colder months or better yet, for years to come.
Read on for our top tips on what types of clothes you need to be investing in this autumn and winter, as well as a look at what our in-store brands can offer you.
Lots of Layers
With cold weather coming our way, it’s time to layer up for autumn and winter. Jumpers, jackets, shirts, cardigans and scarves can all add a stylish touch to any outfit, as well as keep us warm. Joe Browns, a high-end brand which adds quirk to their clothes, have several patterned, jersey and vintage dresses that’d look great layered with a leather jacket and a tartan scarf.
In terms of menswear, you can keep up your chic style and feel comfortable by investing in pieces which are perfect for both autumn and winter. Crew Clothing Company has many tartan shirts, jackets and jumpers that can be incorporated into any outfit, and are ideal for both professional work outings as well as casual days out. If you want something more casual and easy to throw on all day long, then Weird Fish’s range of thick jumpers would be a great option.
A great way to transform your wardrobe into something appropriate for the colder weather without spending massive amounts of cash is to invest in multifunctional pieces which can be worn in various ways. Even though we want to express our style with a whole new wardrobe, sometimes a few key pieces can create more than one great outfit. Multifunctional pieces are the perfect compromise; you can have solid fashion pieces that can be dressed up or down and accessorised to create a different look.
For men, white t-shirts can be dressed up or down with jeans or trousers and accessorised with leather jackets and blazers for different types of events. For women, Joe Browns also sell beautiful leather jackets that can be thrown on for a stylish date night look with jeans and a white tee, or layered over a dress for brunch with your friends.
It’s not only our clothes that we need to consider when updating our wardrobe; we may need some staple shoes to take us through the colder months, too. Forget about sandals and open-toed heels, we need to turn to shoes which will keep our feet warm and survive the rain, snow and wind.
Moda in Pelle is a fantastic shoe brand which prides themselves on selling the best quality Italian leather footwear, making them long-lasting, as well as stylish. They care about comfort and creating shoes that look and feel high-end but are still sold at affordable prices. Bugatti is another brand that we stock who sell a range of footwear in various styles, such as traditional boots and brogues, as well as alternative styles like ankle boots and even knee-high boots to add chic and class to your winter outfit.
Accessories are the perfect way to add comfort, style and even more warmth to your autumn and winter outfits. Throwing on a scarf can complete your outfit, as well as keep you very snug. Joules, another great, high-end brand that we stock at Bratts, has a vast array of scarves for you to choose from.
Their printed square scarves are perfect for complementing an outfit whether you are out for a casual walk or off on a dinner date with your partner. Choose colours based on the outfit that you are wearing or go for a bold pattern or colour to layer on top of a muted or white outfit to create a statement piece. Their gloves come in several styles such as fingerless or mittens, as well as many patterns and colours that will look fashionable as well as keep you warm this winter.
