Embracing Autumn and all it has to offer means it’s time to pack away your summer wardrobe and start planning outfits that will see you through the Autumn months ahead.
When the team from Biscuit asked me to talk about their new Autumn range I jumped at the chance. The start of a new season is the most exciting time for anyone with a passion for fashion! Forward planning is a key part to looking good and hopefully I can give you some tips on those items that will work well in your wardrobe for Autumn-Winter 2017!
It pays to invest in quality pieces that offer versatility and longevity. The new range at Biscuit Clothing does just that and really ticks those boxes. Both stylish and current, the range contains key items for the season and most importantly it incorporates those classic timeless pieces that you will want to wear again and again.
The key to making one of this season’s hottest prints work for you is knowing exactly how to wear it and how to make it work with the rest of your wardrobe.
Leopard print can be treated as a neutral colour – meaning it goes with practically anything! Avoid dressing yourself in head to toe leopard as the impact and overall effect is lost. Wear one piece at a time and it will maintain an element of sophistication and ooze style. You’ve only got to look at these images (@Pinterest) to see how some of the most stylish fashion icons work leopard print into their day to day outfits.
Leopard print doesn’t really go out of fashion, we just love it a little bit more each season.
The Bellerose faux fur leopard print jacket is simply stunning, with its adorable red polka dot lining and red ribbon tie detail fastening, it’s a must have piece this season.
If the jacket isn’t for you then the stylish leopard print Nooki bag instantly transforms any outfit and adds an element of interest.
THE COLOUR RED ….
It’s hard not to notice the biggest colour statement of the season! Although red suits most skin tones not everyone feels confident about wearing such a striking colour. Accessories are the best way to introduce a bold colour into your wardrobe. Adding a splash of red to your outfit couldn’t be simpler!
The Fioriblu range, stocked at Biscuit Clothing, offers beautifully hand stitched and crafted accessories in the softest Italian leather. Whether you opt for a belt or clutch bag , your outfit will be instantly transformed.
Red sits beautifully alongside black, camel, navy, white and denim… and don’t forget how good it can also look against leopard print, stripes and polka dots.
If you really want to make a statement, the Tara Jamon flamme red pleated faux leather skirt could be what you’re looking for! Easy to dress up for an evening out with heels and a cashmere knit or simply pair it with trainers for a more casual daytime look.
THE BRETON STRIPE….
Is there a more well-worn or well-loved classic style than the Breton stripe? The good news for Autumn is that it’s still an essential item when putting together your wardrobe.
If you invest in a really good quality Breton it will last from season to season… it won’t date! You’ll find that investing in classics is key to putting together the ultimate wearable and stylish wardrobe.
Either styled with a simple well-cut blazer or worn with clashing prints, such as leopard or florals, the Breton is one of the key items you can’t be without this season. A Breton can also act as a great layering piece; a glimpse of some stripes peeking out of one of your cosiest cashmere knits adds an element of interest.
At Biscuit Clothing you will find a choice of Bretons from the Danish clothing label Part Two. With three quarter length sleeves, a scooped neck and in the softest of luxury cotton you can choose from two colourways, Navy or White.
The Breton stripe isn’t confined to the classic tee. Maybe Chinti and Parker’s cream Cherry motif cashmere jumper (the ultimate in luxury when it comes to choosing a Breton) will appeal. With the playful cherry motif and bright red stripe trim this Breton will definitely set you apart from others when it comes to looking stylish.
An absolute essential in any wardrobe. If you don’t already own one … you need to!! When it comes to choosing a blazer the choice is simple: go for a navy one! It has a slightly more casual feel to it than black and works effortlessly alongside denim. Take some of the most basic items in your wardrobe (white tee & denim jeans or a cosy knit and denim) and then add a blazer. You will find your outfit steps up a gear. It’s what is known as a transformer! You’ve only got to look at these images (@Pinterest) to see what I mean!
You can spend a little or a lot on a blazer. If you can afford to spend that little bit more you’ll notice a big difference when it comes to the fit. The Part Two Cannes classic navy blazer in a ponte roma jersey creates a flattering silhouette. As soon as you have one you’ll wonder how you ever got by without.
SLOGAN TEES AND KNITS
Slogans have been around for some time now but this Autumn there is a definite trend to let your clothes do the talking. Whether you opt for bold, understated or something a little bit quirky the range at Biscuit Clothing offers plenty of choice. For example, choose from luxury cashmere knits from the ‘Chinti and Parker’ range….
…or opt for a bold statement tee from ‘Ontherise’ (proceeds of which go to the British Red Cross appeal to help victims of the Manchester and London terror attacks). If you’re going to wear a slogan….wear one that spreads the word …LOVE NOT HATE!
Hopefully with these key pieces from the Biscuit Clothing range you’ll have a versatile and stylish wardrobe – after all, isn’t that what we’re all aiming for?
