Welcome to our Autumn styling blog to show you what’s new in store, give you inspiration for your own autumn wardrobe and show how you can build a sustainable capsule wardrobe for the season with a few key pieces!

We know, we know – another jumpsuit! But we can’t help it, we just love them! This Statement ‘Shiva printed jumpsuit in black’ is our favourite statement piece in store. We love jumpsuits because they are practical, comfortable, versatile and perfect for a sustainable capsule wardrobe. Dress this jumpsuit up with a pair of killer heels or keep it casual with some everyday white trainers. You’ll enjoy this beautiful piece for many seasons to come because it has been beautifully crafted from 100% Rayon. This ethically made product is vegan certified and built to last. Beautifully decorated in this all over abstract print.

Does anyone else get excited for the cooler weather to show off their coat game? I’m a big fan of staying cosy in the cooler months and playing with layers of style. This ‘Snow rabbit fleece jacket in coal’ is the perfect everyday cosy coat because of its neutral colour that can be paired with all your favourite everyday items including your organic cotton jeans and midi skirts with boots. Not only is this jacket on trend and practical but it is made from 100% recycled PET. Yes, this coat is made from recycled plastic bottles. This is fab for a few reasons 1. It is diverting waste away from landfills 2. It is creatively re-using waste that already exists and 3. The recycled plastic fibres are perfect insulation to keep you super warm and cosy throughout the cold weather!

Okay – Kalkidan looks fierce here! Also, I want everything here for going to work. Workwear often comprises of a set of interchangeable neutrals that you can style effectively together for smart, practical outfits that you’re comfortable in. This ‘Hariette jacket in indigo’ is the perfect neutral blue that perfectly layers over your favourite autumn knitwear (I want to layer It with my fave Medinaa Jumper in kitt!) and pairs flawlessly with jeans, or for a smarter look with work trousers such as the ‘Maia pants in black’. We love these paired with our new shoes of the season, the sustainable flamingos shoes in white.

You have been loving our ‘Alaani top in kitt’, the halfway point between top and sweater, this basic is the perfect update for an everyday autumn look. Pair it with your favourite ethical jeans or dress it up for a heavenly neutral look with the ‘bowie trousers in warm sand’, just don’t go out for lunch and order soup! Nothing makes you feel more ‘put together’ and positive than a perfectly paired outfit of warm neutrals in the autumn sun!

Autumn styling is all about layering and versatility. This ‘Ashes Wrap Dress in Ink’ is the perfect mixture of practical and flattering because it’s not restrictive and it suits every body shape. The relaxed fit means that you can layer up underneath or over the top – why not layer it over the ‘Laila roll neck in white’ for an update on your classic layered winter dress outfit. Here, Kalkidan wears it with the ‘Isabella mac in midnight’ - a practical but stylish rain mac that is timeless in design and long lasting in make and fit.

Sustainable styling for the coming autumn/winter season starts with beautiful natural basics made ethically from sources that you trust.
