Socks & Style: Ashley’s Autumn Style Guide
Ah, autumn! The time of year when leaves change colour, pumpkin spice invades everything, and you’re stuck in that tricky fashion limbo between sandals and fur-lined boots. Fear not, ladies, for I present to you the ultimate guide to navigating autumn with style, complete with House of Cheviot socks to keep your feet toasty and your look on point.
Sock it to me, baby!
Let’s kick things off from the bottom up, shall we? House of Cheviot socks aren’t just socks; they’re foot-hugging works of art. With intricate patterns and luxurious materials, they’re basically a spa day for your feet. From cosy cable wonders that scream sophistication to beautiful fair isle socks (that practically demand a mug of hot chocolate and a Hygge inspired candle), these socks are the ultimate autumn accessory. Consider them the VIP section for your feet – stylish, snug, and ready to make a statement.
Embrace the pumpkin palette
Autumn’s colour palette is full of tones that give off a warm and cosy vibe. Channel your inner pumpkin spice and dive into shades of burnt orange, rich browns, and deep reds. If you look in the mirror and your outfit doesn’t make you crave a slice of pie and a maple hazel latte, you’re not doing it right!
Layer like a pro
The secret to autumn fashion is layers. Start with a lightweight shirt, add a cosy knit sweater or vest (an oversized knitted vest is my go-to early autumn staple, you could say I’m in my Chandler Bing era…), and top it off with a statement jacket. Don’t be afraid to mix textures and patterns, while keeping the colours seasonal.
Hat’s the way we like it
Autumn is your chance to be a hat girl, and they’re more than just a practical piece. From Margot Robbie’s pink beret to Lainey Wilson’s mocha rancher hat, this classic accessory is all over my social feeds at the moment. Beanies, fedoras, teddy bucket hats – take your pick! Not only will they keep your noggin warm, but they’ll also hide any questionable hair days. It’s a win-win situation, am I right?
Boots are the real deal of autumn footwear. Whether you’re into ankle boots, knee-high stunners, or something in between, they’ll elevate your outfit while remaining practical for the changeable weather.
Streetwear has become increasingly popular, relying on oversized and relaxed fit clothing which is perfect for chilled autumn days. Think cool cardigans, chunky scarves, and big, slouchy coats. You’ll look stylish and feel comfortable all day long.
It’s all flannel
Fact: There’s no such thing as owning too many flannel shirts. Plaid, checkered, or tartan – they’re just perfect for throwing on in autumn, whether you’re visiting a pumpkin patch, enjoying a countryside dog walk or watching Netflix and eating Halloween sweets you fully intended to save for trick-or-treaters…
A scarf isn’t just an accessory; it’s a commitment to cosiness. Wrap it around your neck, toss it over your shoulder, or use it as an impromptu blanket during pumpkin patch photo ops. House of Cheviot’s chunky scarves are perfect for cooler temperatures, and did you know they match the best-selling Lady Katrine socks? Just remember, the bigger the scarf, the better!
Jeans are the backbone of any autumn wardrobe. Skinny jeans (yes, they still exist and as a proud millennial I am not ready to say goodbye), boyfriend jeans, mom jeans – they’re all welcome at the autumnal party. Just make sure they’re comfy enough for leaf-crunching walks, apple picking and pumpkin carving.
So, as you embark on your autumnal style adventure, armed with House of Cheviot socks and a wardrobe full of pumpkin-spiced flair, remember this: fashion is about self-expression and creativity. Embrace the cosy layers and relish in the warm hues. Whether you’re sipping a latte or crunching through leaves, make this season your most stylish one yet. Stay fabulous, stay fashionable, and never underestimate the power of luxury socks to make your day a little cosier and a lot more chic!
