I’ve talked about it on this blog (and on Instagram) millions of times, you all feel it in the air: autumn is here. Naturally, I am very excited about that! One of the many reasons why is probably, that I truly love autumn fashion. I have been on a little shopping fast this September, but I have already started planning what I might buy for the season ahead. I’m looking for beautiful pieces, that I will wear throughout winter and probably our cold German spring as well.
As inspiration, I really loved reading Lisa‘s post on her summer key pieces this year, so I thought I’d share my favourite pieces with you as well. I want to get new items that go well with each other and I think I’ve managed to find a great autumn capsule wardrobe.
I am always cold. Thus, I am very excited about the fact that turtlenecks are back in fashion. I really love them styled with a small gold necklace and a low ponytail. I will probably get this one from JAN ‘N JUNE. Btw, their current A/W collection is absolutely beautiful, I could probably get every single piece.
Apart from the turtle neck sweater, I currently have my eyes on this turtle neck dress. What do you think?
I actually already found a really great one on Kleiderkreisel last year. I just haven’t worn it yet because it’s a little big on the shoulders and does. not. look. great. So, I simply need to get around to taking it to the tailor! That shouldn’t be to difficult, but as I said, I bought it last year. I can’t wait to pair it with a white t-shirt and jeans, such a simple yet elegant look.
So, I need your fashion advice. I definitely have my eyes on a great pair of wide legged trousers this seasons, maybe these ones. But! How do you actually style them? What kind of shoes do you wear with wide legged trousers? In all the pictures I see they are worn with summer shoes, without socks or anything and that’s simply too cold. Any autumn wear fashion tips?
Today I am very happy to introduce you to Anna and Esther from Kunstkinder Mag! They are a super-fashionable duo from Hamburg and also know quite a lot about fair fashion. If you ever think that ethical fashion is out of style and just hoodies and t-shirts, head over to their site. They actually just launched a new and exciting project, die konsumentin, an online magazine for stylish yet sustainable women. It’s beautiful, you’ll see.
It’s a new season, so of course, it’s time for new outfits and fashion posts too! This fall, I really want to only add new pieces to my closet, that I will definitely love. Pieces that look different to what I normally wear but that still fit in with my normal wardrobe. Enter: my new fall dress.
This dress is out of my comfort zone for two reasons: It’s form-fitting and it’s midi-length. Two things I normally don’t wear and exactly the reasons why I love this dress. Like probably most women, I tend to buy the same thing over and over again (striped shirts, I’m looking at you). So now and again, I try to add something to my wardrobe that’s a little different.
One example for that is this dress. It doesn’t look like anything that I already own, but I can easily combine it with the rest of my wardrobe. Also, it’s super-comfy (hello, Fairtrade and organic cotton) and can easily be styled with sneakers and a big cardigan to be even more cosy. I’m definitely in love. What’s even better, the dress is from a fair fashion label I only recently discovered called Know the Origin.
In my opinion, one of the great merits of social media is that it connects you with like-minded people from all over the world. One of them is Allison Karaba. She is a blogger and capsule wardrobe hero and we met on Instagram a few months ago. Yay, 21st century! I truly love her simple and beautiful style, so I’m really happy she agreed to take part in Everlasting Apparel. Have fun getting to know her and find out more about her everlasting piece.
I currently live in Chicago, IL with my husband and two fur baby kitties. I have been working in the media advertising industry for about five years but am toying around with some ideas for a career change :) I’ve always loved fashion and was introduced to capsule living/slow fashion about two years ago. I purchased a book on fashion sustainability and it has become a passion project ever since. I also like to read, consume unhealthy amounts of Mac & Cheese and I love plants but can’t keep anything alive!
While in London last month, I met up with old and new friends alike. We walked all over town, had some coffee and of course I grabbed the chance to take some outfit pictures. I found this culotte at a vintage store in Leiden, one of a few great purchases I made there. To be honest, culotte trousers are a little bit out of my comfort zone. I usually don’t venture far from my trusted skinny jeans or skirts. Anything that’s midi or well, a culotte, hasn’t made it’s way into my closet yet.
