The air is getting crisp and the layers are making their way out of storage: This fall season the perfect under layers are about bold patterns and rich autumn colours. I don’t know about anyone else, but the morning, even amped by a small shot of caffeine can be slow going, and fall and winter mornings can be absolutely dreadful. Choosing an outfit to wear to the office that easily transforms into an evening look when we need to go from the office to dinner, can be an arduous task. I find it best and simple to invest in a few solid dresses, like the ‘little black dress,’ but casual and comfortable enough for the office, and give it a splash of colour with some fun tights.
Wolford’s Barcelona dress is this season’s perfectly versatile must-have. Whether in simple black or rich holly berry, this curve-hugging piece is the ideal base that can be built upon with an embellished cardigan, or a bold piece of costume jewellery, depending on how much of a wow factor you want to bring to the office that day.
However, I always find it best to keep an array of tights in my drawer, the perfect way to change a look, dress it up or dress it down. Whether it is sleek and simple, with a subtle sensual detail!
Or whether you’re feeling brazenly bold and screaming for a bit more attention…
And on those days when it’s particularly chilly and we can barely pull ourselves from the warmth of our comforter, let alone think about wearing a dress, my favorite winter-friendly material comes to mind: wool. Wrap your legs in Wolford’s Merino wool tights, something stylish yet toasty to bear the bitter morning commute:
Then finally, the workday comes to an end. No time to run home and change before meeting the girls for a cocktail? No problem. I find a change of tights, a slightly darker shade of lipstick and some eye-catching jewelry do just the trick to parlay the office look into the glam look:
From day to evening, make your autumn wardrobe routine during the week a breeze. With a few components and the right combination, make a statement and enjoy catching a few more winks of beauty sleep in the morning.
