Trends might come and go, but the overall feeling and mood of each season are very consistent. Spring is always colourful and optimistic, while summer is bolder and more experimental. Winter is a tale of two activities: hibernating and partying. And autumn tends to be the time to make sensible purchases and take stock of what is and isn’t in your wardrobe. Come September, people start to invest in classic staples like blazers, boots, coats and cashmere. These are the items that will act as building blocks for any wardrobe throughout the year.
These pieces might be simple, but we find they tend to require the most consideration, as it’s important to focus on quality and cut to ensure they’ll get the job done and last a long time. On the high street, & Other Stories really excels in this area, with beautiful ankle boots and incredible tailoring. There’s a reason why the boxy blazer is one of the most popular items amongst Who What Wear readers every autumn— it’s really one of the best blazers money can buy.
You might not know that & Other Stories has ateliers in several cities, with each reflecting the aesthetic and talents of its respective city. So it should come as no surprise that the Stockholm atelier is the mastermind behind the brand’s current autumn hero pieces. We love the chunky boots, padded vests and tailored trousers. The neutral palette of caramels, browns and blacks focuses on silhouette and fabric rather than elaborate patterns or embellishments. Keep scrolling to see the items that we think will be a welcome addition to any wardrobe this autumn.
