THE NEW RECRUITS


Has anyone else been opening their wardrobes recently and feeling somewhat uninspired?  Those old favourites that you once wore to death have now transitioned into old news leaving you desperately in need of some new recruits.  Well luckily for us all the season of Autumn symbolises change and that’s exactly where we are heading with this one!

 

Whilst picking practicality over panache has never been an easy task for us, we do understand the ease a capsule wardrobe can bring to dark, early mornings – after all, styling a look just isn’t an option pre-coffee. Don’t get us wrong, we also get the importance of basics, but hear us out when we say we have our own idea of what those are. Recruiting pieces that carry you through the season can be crucial, but adding something more to a look than just an additional layer is key – it’s all about pieces that will give your outfit that added oomph that we are looking for. 

 

So, in true OTL fashion, we have created an edit of the fundamental pieces every cool girl needs to have hanging in her wardrobe this season.

 Prints are made practical when adorned on closet classic shapes so why not throw out your basic black pair for tartan trousers in a contrasting colourway. 

 

The white T-Shirt has evolved from being just another staple to the new wardrobe workhorse. An empowering slogan version is an easy and effortless style that will be sure to take centre stage.

Every wardrobe needs an LBD but haven’t you heard, brown is the new black, so forget the former and meet the ‘Little Brown Dress’. What’s more, this little number touches on another major trend of the season – Animal print in abundance!

The white shirt - the easiest way to make an outfit look more refined and polished, but done with a twist. Jazz up a crisp classic by choosing one with sporty detailing – allowing it to adapt from workwear to weekend worthy.

Layering is key and a blazer is a not only a necessity but the ultimate styling tool of any wardrobe. It looks great teamed with jeans and equally as cool layered over a dress so check out this longline version in the colour of the season.

Anyone else over skinnies? It’s all about not so simple straight cut. We’re all for reimagined versions of our favourite styles, so this colourful embroidered pair are perfect for brightening up not only an outfit but a bleak Monday morning.

Some days you just need to hide beneath something really fabulous and this vinyl trench is exactly that. The contrast stitch and glossy finish score major style points, whilst the black colourway keeps it super wearable for seasons to come.

The humble knitted jumper needn’t be a safe option – opting for a style that holds its own is a must. What appears to be a basic ribbed knit is very far from just that, a simple shape combined with texture is key. Not forgetting the balloon sleeves and tie detail!
