2 + 2: What I’m Buying For Autumn And What I’m Recycling From Last Season

Style influencer Louise Byrne shares the autumn pieces she can’t wait to buy and the pieces she’s carrying over from last season …

A new season, particularly autumn, feels like a turning of the page. The kids go back to school, the leaves change colour, the weather becomes cosy: it’s a moment that cries out for a sartorial change in gear. And while it can be tempting to overhaul your wardrobe with a glut of new pieces, we’re more conscious of consumption than ever. Is it unrealistic to think we won’t buy anything new? Probably. In the spirit of balance, we’ve created a glossy new series 2+2; where style influencers share the pieces they’re investing in for autumn winter and the forever stalwarts they’ll be carrying over from previous seasons. Up this week, Louise Byrne (Instagram @asimplestyle) takes us into her crisp, minimal wardrobe that hinges on reliable staples. See her picks below.

what I’m keeping


“I’ve loved wearing slightly baggier straight-leg jeans for the last couple of years and I’ll continue to wear them this autumn winter. I love how they puddle a bit at the bottom with runners. For a night out they look amazing with heels and a sequin top, a blazer or leather jacket. I love the Agolde 90’s Loose Fit jean; recently, I discovered a more affordable version from Mango (similar below) that give the same effect when you size up.”

“Chunky boots are everywhere still. I wear them with cropped jeans and trousers, leggings, even dresses. My one tip is to find a pair that don’t weigh a tonne. The ones I wear most are from Hush Homewear (similar below) because they’re so light and comfortable.”

What I’m Buying

“I won’t be buying a lot this year but a good coat is like a full outfit you can wear every single day, it doesn’t really matter what’s underneath! It’s the one thing I think is worth the investment. This one by Musier (below) has been on my wishlist for a year or two now. I love when coats are long enough to meet whatever boots or jeans I’m wearing – I find that so hard to find. A lot of them cut off at an unflattering calf length I’m not crazy about, but this one has the length and shape I’m looking for.”

“I love neutrals but I’m trying to add a bit more colour into my wardrobe this year and knitwear is an easy way to do it. I recently bought this gorgeous green jumper (below) from Whistles. I have a feeling block colours will look great with the Musier coat.”
