As Summer gives way to the Autumn months, the evenings turn a little chilly and we yearn for knitwear, layers and structured jackets. However, the cooler months don’t mean that we have to see the end of flowing, floral dresses, blouses and skirts. We just style them a little differently. At Made The Edit, we have pulled together the September Edit of staples which will help you transition your wardrobe from Summer into Autumn.
We’ve chosen brands we love that craft long-lasting, quality products and timeless styles that you will want to wear each Autumn season to come.
The cosy cardigan.
The perfect, cosy cardigan is a staple for most British seasons, but especially in Autumn. A trusty cardigan warms up any outfit, from your favourite floral dress to a structured utility jumpsuit. Our cardigan of choice is made by WYSE London who are renowned for their knitwear and elegantly modern cashmere jumpers. Their Amelia Pocket Cardigan is a classic staple in ivory. Made up of 70% wool and 30% cashmere, this is a quality, long-lasting cardigan you can rely on for a casual, relaxed outfit or to throw on over a floaty dress.
The denim jacket.
There are so many styles of denim jacket to express your personal sense of fashion, from cropped to bleached and brightly coloured denim. We have chosen this quilted denim jacket from & Other Stories not just because it turned our heads with its unique design, but because it’s crafted entirely from organic cotton, making it a sustainable choice too. This padded denim jacket goes that extra mile to add warmth with a shearling lining, making it the perfect denim choice for the cooler months.
The lightweight mac.
The mac is synonymous with British style and as we find our favourite jackets for the cooler months, a classic mac can never go amiss. Olive Clothing is a British contemporary brand that likes to combine heritage with modernity in their clothing, making them a perfect choice to find a mac coat. We’ve chosen the Dover Lightweight Mac from their collection for its long, boyfriend-style. The oversized fit makes it a perfect choice as the months get colder and you start building warmer layers of knits and long-sleeved shirts underneath to keep cosy.
The slouchy jumper.
A slouchy jumper that doesn’t lose its shape is something most of us yearn for. This 100% supima cotton jumper from Jigsaw fits the bill exactly. The fibres used in supima cotton are finer than Egyptian cotton, making for an even softer feel. Supima cotton stands for “superior cotton” meaning the fibres have superior durability and can stand up to washings easily. This round neck style with splits at the side, give the jumper a slightly modern twist but can easily be tucked into high waisted trousers for a more elegant look.
The rollneck jumper.
The roll neck jumper is a sure sign that the autumn and winter months are almost here! Perfect for layering with a midi skirt or your favourite pair of jeans, a super soft roll neck jumper is a must have for Autumn. From London based boutique retailer Iris, we’ve chosen the Ulla Roll Neck Jumper. Made from luxurious cashmere to keep it soft and lasting, this is a bestselling item from their By Iris collection and is available in a variety of warm tones.
The midi skirt.
The midi silhouette is universally flattering and elegant, it transitions easily from each season with a change in styling but for Autumn you probably want to find a midi skirt in darker tones to mix with monochrome and neutral staples. Prairie styling was a trend featured heavily across the summer and there’s no sign of it disappearing this autumn. The Ona Patchwork Print Skirt from Whistles hits all the right notes and the monochromatic patchwork print is wearable and versatile. You can keep the look vibrant by pairing the skirt with a coloured boxy knit, or understated with a classic white blouse with heeled ankle boots.
The midi shirt dress.
The midi shirt dress is a timeless style that transcends the seasons. It can be styled with your favourite pair of boots and you can keep the look casual with a denim jacket or timeless when paired with a mac overcoat. We’ve chosen this flowing red poppy dress from Pom London as the print brings the warm palette of the autumn months and is quality made from 100% cotton. The finer details of the design make this dress so special, from the single button cuff to the pin tuck details around the neckline.
The floaty blouse.
Autumn doesn’t mean we have to say goodbye to the floaty clothing we love in summer, instead we can bring the ethereal silhouette through printed blouses paired with high waisted trousers or a pair of jeans and boots. By Malina is a Swedish brand that’s the go-to brand for women who love irresistible patterns and timeless silhouettes. Picked straight from their Autumn collection, the Ivey Blouse is By Malina’s favourite blouse for this season and it’s ours too! The loose fit with frill details, elastic details on the sleeve in their lovely sorbet flower print makes this a unique and special blouse to wear throughout the season.
