If the idea of contemplating your autumn wardrobe in the middle of July is the last thing you want to be doing right now (understandable), then it's probably best to stop reading this. I, however, am a self-confessed winter fashion fan, so even when the mercury is reaching the mid-20s, chances are my mind will be wandering forward 12 weeks to the cosy knits and warm coats that cocoon the cooler months.
My preoccupation with fall fashion was particularly piqued when I watched the second season of The Politician, which sees its cast of smart twenty-somethings striding around New York City in a plethora of personality-packed autumn outfits. Astrid, aka Lucy Boynton, has one of the most stand-out wardrobes in my opinion, and it's fair to say that her appearances throughout the series have essentially acted as my readymade autumn 2020 capsule.
Not one to shy away from colour and texture, Astrid's brand of style can roughly be described as "elegant extra." And while her taste is slightly more OTT than my own, I definitely plan on taking cues from her looks this autumn when I'm in need of a sartorial pick-me-up. From leopard-print coats and feather-trim frocks to patent trenches and ruffled collars, scroll down to see the outfits inspiring my autumn capsule.
