MY GO-TO ITEMS FOR A CHIC AND TIMELESS AUTUMN LOOK

Here I am again with those words: timeless, chic. It seems that I unintentionally created a week of blog posts dedicated to just those two words. Where my style this summer was a bit laid back, I like to dress up more during the autumn time. This is not something that is new in my life, as I love to dress up and put in a bit more effort in autumn and winter. In my post on Wednesday I talked you through how to achieve that effortlessly chic look. In that post I also talked about picking go-to outfits that make you feel chic and this is one of those outfits for me.
One of the things that always make me feel super chic is a black, longline coat. With a black longline coat it does not even matter what I am wearing underneath, whether that’s a pair of jeans, smart trousers or a pair of gym leggings. These sort of coats have been part of my wardrobe ever since I was fourteen or fifteen years old. I first got one at that age after I had stolen my mum’s black longline coat for a little bit. Since then a black longline coat has been part of my autumn and winter wardrobe. It’s made it into multiple of my Autumn/Winter wardrobe essentials posts, purely for the fact that these sort of coats can be worn for years if you take good care of them.
Another item that is highly appreciated inside of my wardrobe is a pair of black jeans. Even if I have not worn a pair of black jeans in what feels like forever, they instantly contribute to making an outfit look more chic. At the moment I am actually rediscovering my love for skinny jeans. I did not think the skinny jeans would be making a reappearance in my style anymore, as I have been loving mom jeans so much this year. However there is just something about skinny jeans, isn’t there? I think they can make you look just as chic as a pair of smart trousers without actually having to wear a pair of smart trousers. Black jeans make you look pulled together, even if you don’t really feel like dressing up too much. The same goes for wearing a neutral coloured jumper. Or at least I think it does. I absolutely love to be cosy and warm during this time of year. I would basically always wear super cosy and oversized jumpers.

This year however I have decided to downsize on my oversized jumpers as it can sometimes look as if you’re drowning in an oversized knit. This autumn I have tried to buy knits in my actual size or a size down instead of buying knits one, two or more sizes bigger than my actual size. This helps to make a jumper look nice on your body instantly pulls an outfit together, instead of it looking a bit slob-esque in a slightly more oversized look. It’s seems like the most logical and normal thing to do, but I always was a bit scared to wear tighter fitting jumpers, as they made me feel very body conscious, since I am not a size 4 and don’t have a flat tummy. This year I have definitely grown a lot in confidence when it comes to style and I think I have the whole #MidSizeGals movement to thank for it. Nowadays I like to wear lightweight jumpers that are in my right size to help me look chic and pulled together.

The last item of clothing that always makes me feel extremely chic is a pair of boots. They don’t necessarily have to be heeled or pointed in my opinion. I always recommend adding a bit of toughness to a chic outfit to bring back some of your personality into the outfit. I love wearing a pair of flat boots as they are just the most comfortable to wear and stomp around in during the autumn and winter. Not only do I love to wear moto boots, like the pair I am wearing in these photos, but I also love to add chelsea boots. If I really have a special occasion I want to dress up for, I would actually go for a pair of heeled boots, but that definitely has not happened since Christmas last year.

What is a go-to outfit for you?
