In our opinion, no season is quite as satisfying to dress for as autumn. There may be a definite chill in the air, but, rather than limiting our sartorial choices, we think it unlocks endless outfit potential.
Autumn provides us with ample opportunities to layer without the risk of sweltering, to don our favourite pairing (boots and dresses), and to indulge in our coat obsession. As such, we've been in the process of mentally assembling our dream autumn capsule for weeks. So you can imagine our delight when we discovered that one of our go-to brands had created our perfect autumn wardrobe for us. The brand in question? AllSaints.
AllSaints has long been known for its moody colour palette, sublime use of leather, and could-be-couture dresses. But this season, AllSaints has outdone itself with its autumn collection, which ticks off practically everything on our wish lists.
Entitled The New Bohemian, the collection takes the notion of practicality and unites it with the romantic frivolity that our wardrobes have been severely lacking in this year. Inspired by creativity and escapism, this collection is best described as a uniform designed for the free-spirited—those who dare to dream and who wish to carve themselves a new reality. Such is the power of clothes.
Highlights in the collection include one of the most impressive outerwear offerings we've seen this season (the Farren Leather Mac, £899, is a favourite), and its boots are just as strong. After they repeatedly sold out last year, AllSaints has also brought back its two-in-one slip dresses, silky midis with jumpers and tops overtop, which will help you master the art of layering with zero effort on your part.
That said, it's not just AllSaints's new-in section that's left a lasting impression. Mid-season sales are often tricky to navigate; the items on offer never quite fit with what we currently want to wear. But that's certainly not the case where AllSaints's sale is concerned. With versatile pieces that can be styled in a multitude of ways, the AllSaints sale is brimming with must-have buys that we can see ourselves wearing continuously this season.
