Getting Autumn/Winter Ready With YOOX

With a new season comes the opportunity to add some key pieces to your wardrobe. Whilst I am a summer baby and as such love wearing pretty slip dresses and matching co-ords, I am a sucker for knitwear and oversized faux fur coats. There is something about being snug as a bug in a rug that appeals to me on a number of levels. However, realistically I haven’t really had a chance to wear my autumn/winter pieces because so far its been far too mild. I’ll venture out of the house in a big chunky coat, go one stop on the Northern Line from Tooting Bec to Balham and feel as though I’ve just completed a 20 minute HIIT session and about to combust. What is going on? Global warming much. 

With that said, my transitional wardrobe is still very much at the forefront of my mind and I can’t wait to get more wear out of the pieces currently hanging on my clothes rail. In today’s post, I’ve teamed up with YOOX to show you some key autumn pieces I feel everyone should have in their wardrobes this season. A faux fur coat (obvs), an oversized jumper and a comfortable pair of trainers. Three items you can also mix and match and that will have great versatility. I don’t know about you but I absolutely love how wearing trainers with absolutely everything has now become a thing. I mean these Nike Internationalist trainers may not quite be up there with the chunky trainer trend (aka Dad shoes) but personally I tried embracing the ‘fad’ and as much as I want to like them, it’s a no from me. I even recently ordered a pair of Balenciaga Triple S trainers because they looked cool af on the gram but in reality I felt like I had ankle weights attached to my feet, not to mention they looked incredibly boaty. With size seven feet, I am not about to make them look bigger anytime soon. 


I’ll admit that even though a large part of my job revolves around clothes, I have become a bit of a lazy shopper. I favour a one-stop destination website where you have all the brands you love and can shop in one place. We all lead such busy lives that it is the easiest and most convenient way to shop. Arguably, this mentality is definitely contributing to the slow death of the high street but I don’t know about you I really don’t have the patience or time to go shopping like I used to. Sadly, it's a fact of life. Rather than venture to the shops after work, I know I'd much rather browse the internet in the comfort of my own home, wearing my pjs. 

For those of you who may not be familiar with YOOX, they host a number of amazing luxury and more affordable brands too. Take this Vera Moda jumper for example, it’s just £24 and a great way to add a pop of colour to a classic pair of black jeans. I know how easy it can be to fall into the pattern of wearing all black everything when the cold weather really sets in. If you have been following me for a while now then you will know I am all about that colour life, which is why I love this cobalt blue hue as well as the pop of colour on the pockets of this Stand faux fur coat. I actually can’t tell you how much I love this faux fur and admittedly it is by a brand I have never heard of before. It ticks all the right boxes for me. I love that it’s oversized, snug and also basically looks like one giant teddy bear. It’s also unlike anything I own especially with the coloured faux fur pockets. I’m sure you’d all agree it’s a key autumn/winter piece and I cannot wear to get plenty of wear out of it over the next few months.
