Whether you’re dressing for nine-to-five, weekend days or nights out, these pieces make the perfect October uniform ….
A grey collarless coat paired with dark denim and black accessories is a simple look that speaks to easy elegance. The grey jacket, pictured, is from Arket last season but you can shop a similar one here.
Layer a cream knit – like a chunky cardigan or an aran knit – over a white dress for a Scandi-cool look.
Chunky knit roll-neck, classic car coat, tailored but comfortable trousers, the perfect white trainers; as October uniforms go, this one is pretty foolproof.
Got a dressy event coming up? You can’t go wrong with a statement metallic jacket. This structured cropped jacket with embellishment by Sandro is a striking piece that will win compliments.
Top tip: striped jumpers always look good. Especially when paired with a polished tote bag.
Dressing for October needn’t be bland: a shot of bright colour, particularly with accessories, can bring personality to your look. Add a wool or cashmere scarf in a punchy primary colour to your wish-list – shades of emerald work especially well when cheering on the boys in green at the Rugby World Cup.
October can often be mild – if that’s the case take advantage of the pleasant temperatures with a midaxi length skirt and bare legs. Slinging a knit over your shoulders isn’t just a fashion statement, you’ll likely need it when the weather (inevitably!) turns.
The early days of October are that elusive time where you can wear jeans and your favourite knit (even better if it’s a knitted set like this one by Tove) without a coat. Make the look sing with a statement leather belt that has a vintage look.
The benefits of black suiting? It’s fuss-free and entirely chic. Pair slim-silhouette trousers with point-toe ballet flats for a look that nods to the now.
