We’ve Just Assembled 6 Expensive-Looking Autumn Outfits

According to the great British weather system, it’s time we started thinking about autumn, like, stat. Okay we may have a few more sporadic warm weeks ahead but the new season collections are starting to trickle in and the cooler days are well and truly arriving— and we’re not mad about it. Ask most of us on the Who What Wear UK team and we’ll tell you that autumn is our favourite season to dress for. The layering, the rich colour tones, the trench coats… honestly, does it get any better? 

Don’t get us wrong, we can appreciate the ease of throwing on a great dress in summer as much as the next person. But once you’ve cracked your autumn capsule wardrobe— we mean truly, wholeheartedly nailed it— we’d go so far as to say dressing for fall is just as simple. All you need is an edit of expensive-looking classics that you can mix and match depending on the occasion, and they’ll last you year after year.

Of course, everyone’s own capsule will differ depending on personal taste but in general we’re talking timeless coats, luxe leathers, crisp shirting, layering knits, chic tailoring and some very, very good boots. It’s getting us excited for September just thinking about it.  

Everywhere from the high street to high end is about to be overflowing with options of said autumn heroes, however one destination has had us seriously stopping in our shopping tracks already— and that’s Karen Millen. Known for their premium take on wardrobe staples, especially quality outerwear and beautiful leather pieces, it’s unsurprising really that A/W is the season in which Karen Millen really shines.
