As much as we try to shake off the new term feeling at the beginning of Autumn, there’s something about September which will always remind us of buying a whole new haul of fluffy pens and a coat to match our school uniforms. Autumn is all about new beginnings, and what better way to start a new term than a brand-new wardrobe that’s gold star worthy?
Break uniform boundaries by turning up the heat and trading in your bland-black blazer for a little new season number. Ghospell powers in plaid while Jovonna rebels in red, the double-breasted blazer is an Autumn staple for those of us wanting to simultaneously channel 9am-5pm workwear and 5pm-10pm cocktails. Wear with matching trousers for weekday business and swap to jeans for weekend cool or dare to go bare underneath with Ghospell’s check blazer dress.
Ditch your drab polo shirt and send the classic corporate collars to detention, as statement shirts and exaggerated collars are a smart-sensation. Cubic throw it back to old-school English lessons with tie cuffs, piecrust collars and lace up detailing on shirts, giving our favourite story book characters a 21st Century lift. And for those of us who were always hitching up those skirts, we have a whole host of minis or midis to take advantage of your newfound freedom of skirt-styling. Sizzle in Cubic’s leather wrap mini or Jovonna’s hot red vinyl mini, or channel sports day chic in Ninii’s sweater skirt. We have the answers to all the seasonal style tests.
Take the essential and practical baggy school trousers and make them your next style experiment for functional yet fierce fashion. Add a ruffle or step-hem like Cubic, some check print like Daisy Street or a kick flare like Ghospell, and if you’ve got double-gym scheduled for the afternoon then Blake Seven provide the perfect jogging pant.
We’re here to help with organising your rule-breaking wardrobe for the new style term, for week day fashion that’s the Head Girl of the upcoming season.
