PAUSE Trend: Five Autumn/Winter Must-Haves

As the colder season is approaching, cheap here’s how to be ready  for it.

SEASONAL-3

When it comes to the transition from summer to autumn to winter the unpredictability of the English weather gets ramped up to max and it becomes a melting pot of uncertainty. Like the roadrunner there is a way to stay ahead of the weather with the help of the perfect transitional season attire, generic so forget ACME because PAUSE has you covered for Autumn/Winter 2015.

Lightweight Coats

PAUSE is talking jean jackets, trench coats, bomber jackets, shearling and duster coats, because the lightweight coat should be the corner stone of every pillar of style. For the warmer days simply dress with a plain/printed tee, PAUSE minimalism is key to mastering fall looks when a master coat, let the coat do the talking. While during the slightly colder climates, opt instead for the layering option so that means adding a shirt over your tee in your styling arsenal and then simply add the coat above it all or even add add a shirt over your turtle neck if you want to challenge the breeze. If you’re looking to invest in such an Autumn/Winter necessity, then we suggest investing in a versatile coat that can take your through both seasons, whether it be cold or warm, let your styling work through the temperatures.

Scarves/Capes

The style staple you barely know is there yet can easily promote your outfit game to the premier league of sophistication, but the best bit about scarves that make them such a great buy, if it gets too hot you can take them off! When it gets cold during the night time, release your poncho cape and switch to your light sleek scarf for the daytime.

Light Jumpers

 

Wear it under a trench or duster coat in the extreme colds or wear it by itself on those gentle breezy days. The light jumper is the very definition of versatile autumn dressing, yet it still stays every bit as stylish whatever the weather.

Autumn/Winter season provides a sensational opportunity for fresh beginnings. Forget the casual summer attire, pharm it is the colder months when we get down to the style nittty gritty and we weed out the trend setters from the trend followers. So if you consider yourself a debonair James Bond type rather than a sartorial haphazard Jonny English, sale then the next five Autumn trends are a must have for saving the world, one great outfit at a time.

Chelsea Boots

Using the word immortalised by Keith Lemon, Chelsea boots are ‘Bang tidy’. Both easy on the eye and heavy duty, PAUSE can certainly guarantee they are enough to withstand the unpredictability of the colder months. Chelsea boots are those clothing rarities where style and practicality are married perfectly and with brands like Common Projects and Saint Laurent, there is certainly no shortage of choice. In a cognac brown or black, the styling potential is practically limitless, plus the heavy duty design provides a lot of room to layer up on top. But Chelsea boots look at their absolute finest when added with skinny black jeans, shirt and a long overcoat or biker jacket.

Following the 70s revival – a personal trend favourite at PAUSE, brands such as Stuart Vevers and Coach are flooding their runways with striking shearling jackets. With so many modern style offerings, the trend has quickly diverted its course from Del Boy faux pas to 1930’s Aviator suave reminiscent of Steve McQueen. A shearling coat makes a stylishly classic combination with an oxford shirt/sweater pairing and black cotton trousers. However, if you want to go for something a little more edgy, opt for jeans and a statement patterned shirt. Considering a statement coat is a wardrobe staple all great outfits are built on, it is important to make the right choice in the outwear department. But with the shearling jacket on your shoulders just like a aviator pilot, you’ll be flying so fashionably high.

Turtle Neck

Nothing epitomises sophistication and cool better than a roll neck. It could be paired with a blazer and chino or a simple trouser and trainer combination and still make the outfit equally at home with the style elite. But considering it’s 2015, your generic black roll neck doesn’t quiet seem like a top of the fashion agenda. So instead, try out some more risque colour blocks. We at PAUSE are thinking bright red and navy, which add an eye catching twist to an outfit without making it any less sophisticated. Despite the pop of colour, the same style rules apply, so put on your blazer for an instantly dressed up look or keep it causal with trousers and sneakers.

Loose/Wide Leg Trousers

On this list, the wide leg trousers trend is a trickier one to master. But if done right, it will guarantee you an effortlessly chic attire with an added bonus of envious comfort. To avoid looking like you raided your granddad’s wardrobe, PAUSE recommends to keep the rest of your outfit as clean and simple as possible. Think a round-neck white tee or a thick wool sweater and your classic Adidas Sam Smith‘s. And make sure the trousers hit below your ankles and are made from a thick fabric for that casual but still pull together look.
