The Investment Piece Every Autumn Wardrobe Deserves

Is there anything better than a long cashmere cardigan?

Oh no, there simply isn’t! As the temperatures cool and the leaves begin to fall; I only have one priority when it comes to planning my autumnal outfits; they’ve just got to be cosy! Whether worn over jeans and a roll neck, a simple jumper dress or a more statement dress such as the one I’m wearing here, a long cardigan is essentially the stylish way of getting the cosy vibes as though you’re literally wearing your dressing gown out in public – hurrah!

They don’t come much better than in a beautiful cashmere material, and this soft brown toned cashmere cardigan from Johnstons of Elgin is the one I’m wearing most frequently at the moment. (Use code JL10 to save 10% on this beautiful piece!) Perfect for long journeys; I popped this on over a knit vest top and midi skirt last week for an early start and long drive to London for a shoot day – but equally perfect for those days when you want to be comfy at home. The perfect alternative to a coat on those more mild days, elegant enough to wear with beautiful dresses and fashionable looks alike.

I adore this long green dress, it’s the most perfect transitional piece for a Summer to Autumn wardrobe, it’s from the NET SUSTAIN collection at NET-A-PORTER but I also found a fabulous dupe from H&M here. This type of dress can be layered with thermals (if you live somewhere ultra chilly!) or tights underneath, with knee high boots, but I opted for this cream pair of ankle boots to lighten up the look.

To add a luxury finish to the look, I styled my (last year) YSL bag (new version, similar found here) and my MOST worn luxury accessory – my Gucci belt. I quite literally wear this belt with everything. It instantly adds luxe style points to a highstreet jumper dress, or could beautifully elevate the H&M dupe to this dress, but equally it’s fabulous with jeans and even leggings too.
