There’s no denying it anymore: Autumn is upon is. Even though it’s still officially summer (I’m still sitting outside and wearing my beloved, well-worn Bolle sunglasses as I type this), and the weather is lovely here in The Netherlands at the moment, now is the time to slowly prep your wardrobe for the new season. And the best part is: you really don’t have to get rid of your summer stuff yet!

  1. Add some texture

By adding new (heavier) textures to your wardrobe, you can already create a completely different vibe. Time to break out the knitwear! Easy to wear over your summer outfit. Or, go bold and add some velvet, which is bang on trend this season. Rather playing it safe? A leather jacket will do just fine.

  1. New colours

A fresh colour palette can work miracles for your wardrobe. A little bit of burnt orange/brown for example will add warmth to your look and can easily be mixed with summery tops, like a silk shirt.

  1. Footwear

New season? New shoes! Although a pair of basic leather trainers will work all year round, a pair of slides probably won’t (unless your living somewhere warm and sunny. In that case: Switch with me?). So, it’s time for something with a little more coverage. Who doesn’t like a good pair of ankle boots mixed with a cute dress?

  1. Accessories

Something I might have been underestimating, but more on that later. Accessories can lift up your look and when used properly, also determine the look and feel. Opt for a nice bandana scarf in an autumn shade (burnt orange, darker greens, olive, mustard) and wear it with a plain white tee or a shirt for example.

  1. Layering

That cute dress? Perhaps you could also style it with a pair of (skinny) trousers underneath. I’m currently eyeing a very nice dress which I thought might be a bit too short for this time of the year, but this would be the perfect solution to still wear it.

Try some of the above and you’ll notice that you suddenly have a lot more outfit options. Score!. There’s no denying it anymore: Autumn is upon is. Even though it’s still officially summer (I’m still sitting outside and wearing my beloved, well-worn Bolle sunglasses as I type this), and the weather is lovely here in The Netherlands at the moment, now is the time to slowly prep your wardrobe for the new season.
