Oh, autumn. In my personal opinion, it's the best time of year for fashion. The beautiful colour palettes, layering options and reach-out-and-touch-me textures all come together to create a potent blend of wardrobe goodness that I find impossible to resist. And now, with autumn just days away (the season officially kicks in on 22 September), I'm more than ready to bid farewell to the sandals and linen dresses of summer and bring my autumn staples to the front of my rails and drawers.

If you're in need of some of the essential pieces that make up a stylish autumn wardrobe, look no further than Karen Millen's new autumn drop, Chronicles of a Woman. The collection quite literally features everything I want to wear this season. Think tailored coats with military flair, expensive-looking leather separates, blouses that'll pep up old jeans and strong, chic shoes. These are all the things that Karen Millen is known for getting so right, but this year, they're chicer than ever.
Upon taking in the Chronicles of a Woman edit, it became clear that the brand has nailed 9 specific categories for autumn 2021. So I thought I'd do the honourable thing and share them with you, no matter how much I might like to keep them to myself. Scroll on to see my favorite pieces, and prepare for your most fashionable autumn on record.
