I love autumn. It’s not just the cooler weather and the swirling leaves, it’s the clothes. There are so many and they’re all lovely. Over the next few weeks I’m going to share some of my favourite autumnal looks. First up is the bookish beauty…or librarian chic.
My student days are long behind me, but there’s something about autumn that always makes me crave sweet, bookish clothes in the warm colours of the season. Russets, plums, mossy greens…corduroy, print shirts, brogues and t-bars… The sort of thing to wear to the library with a satchel slung over your shoulder. Quiet girl style with a quirk.
Autumn is only time of year I really think about corduroy. A pinafore dress with a printed shirt, or striped tee, is a great way to wear it.
It’s still a bit warm for thick polo necks, but the shops are full of thin, ribbed, cotton ones. They’re perfect with a printed skirt – with or without tights depending on the weather!
All you need now are a few autumn leaves to crunch through! The satchel, bicycle and library books are optional.
