STYLE INVESTMENTS I WANT TO MAKE IN AUTUMN

It’s officially autumn. It actually feels weird to say so, as I am currently still away on holiday in sunny Spain. But as soon as we go back home to The Netherlands it will probably be truly autumnal and I will have to get my scarves and jumpers out. This year I am really trying to make an effort to purchase only those items I feel like I need in my life and I know will last me a long time inside my wardrobe. Since doing a little wardrobe clear out at the end of August, I noticed there are a couple of things I feel like are missing inside my wardrobe. It’s why, because I actually donated quite a few of my autumn/winter bits and bops to charity, I feel like I am allowed to invest some money in some new bits and pieces for my wardrobe.

A black pair of mom jeans

This year I have pretty much only worn my mom jeans and they are blue. They have become such a staple inside of my wardrobe and don’t even picture myself wearing skinny jeans that often anymore. Since it’s now officially autumn, I know for a fact that I will be going back to darker colours, which also means I will probably want to start wearing black jeans more often. It’s why I am really want to invest some money in another pair of black mom jeans. I already own one pair, but I feel like I definitely need to get myself another pair, as I always feel like the pair I want to wear is in the wash just when I need it. I usually buy my mom jeans at ASOS, as I love their Farleigh jeans, but I am looking to expand. Please do tell me your recommendations if you have a pair of mom jeans that look absolutely banging on you.

A wool scarf

Every year for the past four years I have told myself I wanted to invest in a wool scarf to keep me warm during autumn and winter. The ones I have bought in the past actually are only partially made of wool, which I am now not as much of a fan of anymore. It’s why I am looking to buy a wool scarf for myself that is actually made of 100% wool, instead of just 90% or sometimes even 50%. I feel like a wool scarf is such a classic wardrobe staple you can wear for years and years to come. I have my eye out on the Acne wool scarves, but I do think they are a bit overpriced just because they have a branding on it, so I will be looking online a bit further to see where I can buy myself the wool scarf I am after.

A wool jumper

It’s about time I start investing in some really timeless jumpers I can wear for years and years to come. Just like with the wool scarf, I like to invest some of my money into a jumper made from wool. I find wool can sometimes look a bit unflattering on me, as I am already a bit chunky myself. So it seemed logical for me to go on the hunt to find myself a wool jumper that isn't too thick or chunky. I obviously have some rules. It should be neutral, which is just to make sure I truly love it. It also means I would be willing to pay a bit more money for a jumper. Because only then I know it will last me a lifetime, if I don’t shrink it in the wash obviously.

Those are the things I would love to invest some money into this autumn and/or winter. It’s not much, but I definitely feel like I don’t need to replace or buy myself much either. What is on your autumn style investments list this year?
