Despite the fact that we're about to experience a heatwave in September, I'm only thinking about autumn and what to wear this coming season. Give me knitwear, boots and denim over summer dresses any day. I decided to hit up some of the coolest women on Instagram I could think of, whose style I often look to for inspiration. They're mostly quite minimalist dresses but with a twist, which is how I like it. Not only did these five women all give me great outfit ideas, they picked some interesting pieces too, some which I would never have thought of.
In the shopping picks below you'll find gorgeous jewellery that are sure to be life-time proofed as well as classic handbags that will be great for any occasion. But it's not just designer wares you'll find, there are also great high-street gems in the mix too. From a gorgeous Arket jumper that looks way more expensive than it's £69 price to a Cos blazer that's the perfect oversized shape for this coming season (and way beyond). Keep scrolling to find out more about these super chic women and what they're hoping to buy this autumn.
